Thigh high boots aren’t just for Vivian Ward – or shall we say a Pretty Woman – anymore.
However, there are plenty of ladies pulling off this look left and right. Considering that it’s actually winter now, covering more skin is simply seasonally practical. But as much as I love the character that made Julia Roberts a star, we’ve gotta avoid the whole Hollywood Boulevard look in 2013.
Simple, boxy pieces tend to pair well with a tight, over the knee boot – and what a plus for the shoe to be printed.
I love the idea of pairing a potentially dressy boot with a sweatshirt and simple bag.
Being of petite
as in height stature myself, this trend can be worrisome because there’s not so much leg room. Teeny tiny Russian blogger Miroslava Duma blends a sleek charcoal pair with jeans and a longer sweater, and I’m liking the casual look even more.
A leather skirt and badass sunglasses give an over the knee boot just enough edge.
A modern take on this classic boot can obviously be successful, and it can’t be too. This is a style that you definitely need to try on – in front of a mirror – with a few outfits before taking off the tags, too.
