Over-The-Knee-Boots: The Return Of Hooker Chic
October 6, 2008
Boots this season don't seem to want to stay mid-calf. They're either moving downtown to the ankle, or upwards to cover the knee. The latter style reminds me of the footwear Julia Roberts stashes her protection in at the beginning of Pretty Woman, but hooker insinuation hasn't stopped celebs like Madonna and Rihanna from going there. And according to the NY Times, many more women have decided to venture over-the-knee as well.
If you're going to try out this trend, we suggest either a flat boot in classic black leather, like this Steve Madden pair ($230), or a heeled pair in suede. These Moschino boots ($760) could be a nice option for evening, worn over solid tights or skinny jeans. Just try to stay away from any pair in ultra-shiny patent leather with sky high stiletto heels. Unless it's part of your Halloween costume.
