You Said: No to Over the Knee Boots

December 7th, 2009


wet-seal-over-knee-boots_120709We asked: Would you wear Over the Knee Boots?

You said:  No to Over the Knee Boots, with a 63% to 37% vote.

Style tip? One of Anne Hathaway’s most iconic looks from The Devil Wears Prada has her leaning against a car in fabulous Chanel over the knee boots.  While we don’t all have Anne’s long, lean legs, we can still get the look with a pair of tall black boots and a pair of black tights (which together visually slim the legs).  Over the Knee boots create the most dramatic look, but because they’re so risque, they’re still somewhat on the fashion fringe.  For the rest of us, try knee-length boots and leg lengthening leggings or tights.

Next question: Winter White is completely chic, but also difficult to care for and keep clean.  Additionally, it can have an anti-slimming effect - though it’s a neutral, it’s no black.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear the color White?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Wow, I’m surprised that OTK boots got the boot! They’re so hot this season …

    I’m a fan of winter white. It opens up so many possibilities during the cold months.

    What?! I know Over-the-Knee can be hard to pull off, but I didn’t think that many people were wary of this look!! More discussion here:

    i didn’t like the over the knee boot when i first saw it, but i tried it out and bought a pair and i love them. if you’re worried about them being too trashy/pretty woman, then buy flat over the knee boots.

    I am surprised too! I work at a high end shoe store and they are just flying off the shelves right now.

    I voted “no” on the OTK boots because I did think they might look trashy, but that might be because all of the ones I’ve seen in person are way too high-heeled. But I forgot about the boots in The Devil Wears Prada and that outfit looked good, so maybe I’ll consider them.

    I like the idea of wearing white but I feel like as soon as I leave my house, it’ll get dirty. I love winter white wool coats though.

    I love winter white! I just bought a white peacoat and I feel so classy in it :)

    As for OTK boots, they look cool but it seems like it’d be hard to find any with low heels. On the other hand you could stay warm in the winter with just leggings! That would be a nice change.

    These results are really surprising

    My question to you would be who did you ask about the boots? They must have been lunch ladies!
