High heel over the knee boots can easily stray in to the realm of what I like to call “too sexy” also known as slutty
This trend along with crop tops is one trend where you want to tread lightly. And you are probably not going to want to wear a crop and over the knee boots, I guess this could be done in a way that is not tacky but proceed with caution. Now with over the knee boots it seems there are two ways to go: heels or flats. High heel over the knee boots can easily stray in to the realm of what I like to call “too sexy” also known as slutty. But I have seen it done in a way that is both sexy and fashion forward. If you are going to do over the knee boots with heels make sure to keep the bottoms either the same color or dark denim. Light denim and bright colors? Umm not so much. That would be tack central, and no need for that. Also be sure to keep the tops you pair them with long. A cowel necked chunky knit sweater in a neutral shade should work. Or if you want to get a bit more dressed up, try a long flowing blouse and then add a cropped blazer or jacket over it, or even better a long blazer. Nothing looks chicer then blacker leather over the knee boots, black jeans, a long dressy blouse, lots of long chain necklaces paired with a long fitted blazer. Oh la la!
But if this sounds intimidating then a pair of flat over the knee boots could be just the ticket. And in this case shying away from black may be an easy way to try this trend with out risking looking too severe. I love what Kim from Eat Sleep Wear did with her over the knee boots. First she chose a soft gray suede color and then she paired them with some skinny jeans in a similar tone. Then she topped this with a long knit sweater in a beautiful caramel color. Finally, she threw on a relaxed fit faux lambswool coat in a traditional wheat color for what she likes to call “tonal dressing”. Well whatever you would like to call it, this is one look that is %100 successful. An effortless fashion forward look that is flattering, sophisticated and best of all comfortable.
