Pretty Woman





The over the knee boot is this winters go to footwear, but how can you wear them without the pretty woman subtext? Aka; looking like a hooker! It is a real shame, as they so elegantly provide a sleek line to compliment your outfit while rather practically keeping you warm. They are sort of like a control pant for your lower limbs. Have I sold you on this trend yet? Really... The control pant and hooker spiel didn't win you over? I do actually really love over the knee boots and socks despite my previous jibes, they are incredibly easy to wear and they really can be worn with everything. The boots I am wearing with today’s outfit don’t quite come over the knee so I have simply added over the knee black socks to give the same effect. I think one of the main reasons I enjoy wearing these boots in winter is because it’s a change from tights which, can be less than appealing sometimes. There is really nothing I hate more, or is less attractive, than having to stop every five steps to hike your crotch back up into position and lets face it, we have all had to do the ‘tight dance’ at some point. Although recently, one of my friends commented saying 'You should always wear tights with these boots to avoid the pretty woman comment', but I think she is wrong the whole point of the boots is to add drama. Now, after preaching about not looking like a prostitute I should of perhaps not have taken these pictures on a street corner. For me the over the knee boot adds a hint of sex appeal in an otherwise oversized and 'Mannish' dominated season.
What do you think of over the knee boots or do you think they are slightly more street corner then high end?

  1. Not really a fan to be honest. Love the coat though.


  2. You're right over the knee boots are essential this winter. You look great. I like your coat.

  3. Beautiful coat you look pretty.

  4. Not the biggest fan of over the knee boots but you do make some valid points - you got me at control pant haha. You styled them great and it definitely doesn't give me a 'pretty woman' vibe! Amazing coat, you really look brilliant! ♥
