Trend Alert: Over-the-Knee Boots

Giuseppe Zanotti at ShopStyle

I've never been a huge fan of over-the-knee boots, but seeing Jenna Dewan in her maroon pair convinced me otherwise. See, I used to think thigh-highs were cheesy — cue Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman — but the key to getting this look right is styling it with not so '80s clothes. I suggest girlie floral frocks, like Jenna's, for an upscale Woodstock vibe, or paired with a lean wool mini, tights, and trench for a ultra-modern Fall look.

I have some flat, barely over the knee, boots and I'm short and i used to think it looked like a kinda slutty/trashy but it looked pretty classy with my summery dress. It can be done.

I could never pull off over-the-knee boots.

I so agree...over the knee boots always scream hooker to me too ckeller825! They could possibly work with something a bit less "hooker" like on top...like the article said something more girlie and a throw back to Woodstock style a bit...less structured more flowy.

I'm not fond of these with heels...no matter what, it will always scream hooker to me.. HOWEVER, I am really fond of the flat/small-wedge over the knee boots! I saw some really pretty ones at Nine West and Nordstrom (Steve Madden Blondee), both for $99, this past weekend. I didn't try them on, but they look dreamy in person. Actually, Zara has flat over the knee boots in grey and black, as well, for $79 I believe. I tried them on, and I really loved them

i like over-the-knee boots but i think you have to choose them carefully, otherwise it can look gross.
