Currently Trending: Over-the-Knee Boots
When I hear the words "over-the-knee boots," the first image that comes to mind is Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, in her infamous outfit. Well, maybe that's why a lot of people are skeptical about over-the-knee boots, but in fact, they're just one of those items that have to be styled right in order to appear fabulous and avoid that undesirable look. Over-the-knee boots are one of boldest items that you can wear this season, however, the way you wear them can make or break your overall look.
Over-the-knee boots reach up to your thighs, so ultimately they should be worn with short bottoms; a flared miniskirt, a pair of shorts or a mini-dress. Be sure that you're not showing a lot of skin though, just a couple of inches of your legs should be showing. Also, whatever clothes you're wearing shouldn't be too tight, you need to avoid that 'sexy-gone-wrong' look. If you feel intimidated by showing your skin, you can wear tights beneath your clothes, or wear your over-the-knee boots with skinny jeans and they'll update your look instantly. Another thing you should avoid when it comes to those thigh-high boots, is buying them in any low quality material, such as PVC leather or cheap-looking suede.
