The Tiny Heart: Fall Fashion Trend: Over the Knee Boots

Fall Fashion Trend: Over the Knee Boots

Top Row: Aldo Bracknella Boots//Chinese Laundry Southland Boots//Mia Pyramid Boots

Over the Knee boots are back in this year! I love this trend, but I think there's a fine line between looking trendy and looking like a hooker (Pretty Woman, anyone?). I prefer these as flat boots since the heeled versions can be tricky to pull off. 

If you're petite you may be wondering if you can wear this trend. I say yes! My tip is to wear tights/pants the same color as your boots (mine are black) so your legs appear longer. 

In other news, one year ago today the Jersey shore was being ravaged by Superstorm Sandy (click to read my post after the storm). Tonight I'll be participating in Light Up New Jersey to commemorate the anniversary. 

PS Happy birthday to my mom!

  4. I've been looking for over the knee boots also. I prefer flat ones too. I don't think I could wear the ones with heels.

  9. I totally agree about the flat boots for short legs and the heeled ones resembling hooker boots. I've never even considered the over the knee boot because of my short legs!

  10. I'm not sure if I like the trend on myself because I'm short... but other people can really make them work!

  11. It's hard to believe it's been a year since Sandy hit! Thinking of Jersey today!

    I haven't tried over the knee boots before, but I have a couple of pairs that come up just below my knee and I do like those!

  14. I haven't given the over knee boots a try yet. I'm worried that I'm too short and they won't look good! I may have to just break down and try them on before I write them off completely!

  19. HaHa Sharon! There is definitely a fine line. One wrong step and you can go overboard. These are cute.

  22. Cool boots! I'm more into the booties now days. I only love to wear high boots in deep snow. Booties aren't too great for deep snow, tho.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My oh my. I absolutely love over the knee boots and they're so helpful when the ground is covered in several feel of snow! I prefer the flat ones as well, mostly because I like being short haha

  24. I love my Steve Madden OTK boots but they don't get as much wear as they should because you're right, there's a fine line between stylish and hooker, lol!

  25. I loveee over-the-knee boots especially when worn with leggings. I usually pair mine with leggings and a cute coat. When it's really cold out I'll add a scarf and it makes me look a lot more "polished". I agree, the hooker look can be easy to fall into with over-the-knee boots. I've seen it soo many times already this year. LOL.

  26. I can never wear boots this high - I have big calves so if I want boots like this, typically I have to pay extra for a bigger calf size.

  27. I love your picks! That first pair is awesome!

  28. So true about the fine line between raunchy and classy-- that's been my worry! Love the flat ones though!

  29. I have been on the hunt for a pair and can't seem to find any that don't make my knees wrinkle....they all hit in the wrong spot. It's driving me NUTS!!!

  30. My sister has a pair and I love them! I need to try this look! I just want to find a pair that still make me look tall! I feel like some would make me look so short!

  32. I don't own a pair, but I sort of want to! I have nowhere to wear them to (except for outfit posts- what a good excuse to buy them!)

  33. I don't own a pair, but I definitely want to! The black flat ones are my favorite!

  34. I think pairing them with the same color pants is a good solution to wearing them for petites, and maybe knee length skirts would work? Definitely no minis!

  35. Those Over-the-Knee Boots are great. I love the left & middle pairs on top and the left pair on the bottom. I currently own a pair of flat, riding over-the-knee Boots which I love. =)

    Happy Hump Day! Ada.
