Over the Knee Boots

Boots is a winter essential and having a great pair of boots can certainly make a gal's outfit extra snazzy. However, I am not too sure about this over the knee boots. With my petite height of 5 feet 4 inches, I am sure I will look perfectly odd in this particular trend. Also I am not sure if I want to only wear shorts and miniskirts in the winter. Perhaps a pair that is slightly over the knee might be alright but any higher will just be silly on me. Both images from Prada Fall 09 via style.com --- How are these attractive?
left Chanel --- My legs may not be long enough for these boots.
right Celine --- The wrap around leather straps look interesting but bulky.
Prada boots $1400 via Neiman Marcus --- A gal needs to be at least 5 feet 10 inches uh....
left Gucci $2590 via Gucci.com
center Jimmy Choo $1395 via Saks
right Gucci $2950 via Gucci.com --- First of all, will anyone pay $3000 for this pair of boots? Not me for sure! The design is unique with the patent leather patch and these are almost like wearing leather pants.

What do you think of OTK (over the knee) boots?

  2. Hussein Chalayan did a much better version of the waders..they look like fashion, not like you're going on a fishing trip à la Prada.

  14. I think they'll look great on very tall girls or girls with long legs. I love seeing tall editors wear them on jak and jill's blog! They look really cool and fierce! xxoxoxo

  20. I had the same idea as drollgirl. I first thought of stripper boots ;D Or if you want to get away with out shaving. Fun for younger people, but not for me.
