The Boot Style Guide

Over-the-knee boots are one of the hottest looks this season and come in a hugely diverse range of designs. With styles including everything from tapered heels to platform stilettos, skin-tight fits to stylish slouch, this high-fashion footwear looks fabulous worn over tights, long socks or jeans and has been seen all over the autumn catwalks. Popular amongst designers as an alternative to leggings and tights, these sexy boots are set to make a huge comeback this year.

This diverse fashion staple looks fantastic when teamed with short dresses in neutral shades, worn over skinny jeans with a white tank-top and black blazer, or when paired with a tunic and leggings. They also look fantastic when worn beneath a tiny pair of tailored shorts, giving a smart yet flirty feel to the outfit. Even celebrities such as Kate Moss, Rhianna and Hilary Duff have been seen wearing over-the-knee boots, making them a key piece for any wardrobe this autumn.

Toned down by soft suede fabrics and earthy colours, these boots which originally appeared during the 70s no longer have the harsh edge of those worn by Diana Rigg in The Avengers. Equally sexy in their skintight and slouch variants, over-the-knee boots are sure to demand all the right kind of attention. Whether you want a pair of high stiletto heels or some more down-to-earth flats, there is a style to suit everyone.

With winter on its way and the temperature already much cooler, over-the-knee boots are a practical alternative to the flimsy shoes and sandals on offer throughout the summer months. For a night on the town, over-the-knee boots offer an added element of warmth, allowing you to keep partying long after your friends have given up. For a night out, this incredibly diverse footwear can be dressed up with a little skirt and great accessories, or can worn over black leggings with a smart shirt for a day at the office. They are an ideal way to breath life into your existing wardrobe without breaking the bank, taking any outfit from smart to sexy in seconds.

Over-the-knee boots can even give the illusion of thinner legs, allowing women who would never normally dare to wear a tiny skirt, or mini tailored shorts a chance to branch out into a whole new area of fashion. If you suffer from skin irregularities such as cellulite, these boots are a fantastic way to cover up any lumps and bumps, without hiding your beautiful pins. For shorter women, a tight pair of these boots can elongate the leg, giving the illusion of extra height - and that's before the addition of heels and platforms. The opposite is also true – taller women can wear flat versions in a loose fit.

If you've never worn these amazing boots before, it's a good idea to have a look at some of the catwalk outfits to see which styles you like best, ensuring you'll look absolutely fabulous, whichever you choose.
