Because they look so sophisticated and chic no matter if you're wearing them with an oversized sweater and jeans or a very elegant dress. Because they're so easy to mix and match with almost anything so you can play with outfits and let your fashion imagination go wild. Because they're classic and timeless, something like a little black dress of 21st century. No, we're not exaggerating - you see these super sexy boots on every Fall/Winter fashion week, in different structures and colors though; every year major fashion names wear them on the streets of NY, Milan, Paris and yes, you can pair them with anything - just like pearls or aforementioned little black dress. There is just so many reasons to have them in your closet but we will let pictures do all the talking.
You have probably noticed that they look awesome with ab-so-lu-te-ly everything: leather jackets,wool coats, both skirts and shorts, pants and jeans, and even turtleneck oversized sweater dresses!Forget about biker and riding boots and jump in these headturners, we guarantee you won't pass unnoticed! They simply add a touch of glamour and elegance to even the plainest outfits, and that's one of the reasons over the knee boots are an everlasting trend.
Just be careful as this kind of footwear is a two-edged sword: you certainly don't want to look like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. If you're wearing a skirt or shorts, keep the rest of the outfit simple and don't show too much skin, cleavage is a no-no. In this case, opt out for an oversized sweater or a simple shirt with a blazer or a wool coat. Anything too revealing is forbidden unless you want to look too racy. These boots look best with bare legs but if you can't go without a pantyhose, choose simple ones without any applications, darker than your skin or opaque ones. Always keep in mind that silhouette of the outfit is everything: as OTK boots are usually form-fitting and tight, the rest of your look should be loose.
Some of the most fashionable women amongst celebrities such as Miroslava Duma, Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian have embraced this trend a long ago and set an example how these boots should be worn: confidence is the key. Whether they're pairing their fav OTK's with skinny jeans or a dress, the right attitude and good accessories make the outfit. Fashion veteran Miranda Kerr seems to adore this kind of footwear and always combines it with a woolen coat for an ultimate fashion statement and a polished look.
For a bold hippie yet dashing look, you can match your thigh high boots with a fedora or a floppy hat, while keeping the rest of the outfit simple and calm. Ciara rocks one of the best over-the-knee boot looks with an oversized cardigan and a fedora, while Blake Lively nailed it with all-black-everything look and just-got-out-of-bed hairstyle.
Beauty of over the knee boots lies in their versatility. They are probably the only type of footwear that will look good for both casual outfits and elegant dinner parties too, for coffee with your friends and nightclubbing as well. Simplified long sleeve dress and a good outerwear piece actually look amazing when combined with thigh high boots: you will impress with sexiness while keeping it classy at the same time.
My personal favorite would definitely be a pair of Stuart Weitzman Highland boots. Although they have already been worn by every single blogger and celebrity from Ashley Madekwe to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, which makes them yesterday's news, they remain the IT shoe of the season and fashionistas from all around the world just can't get enough of them.
