This fall, turn up the heat with some over-the-knee boots. This trend is where cat woman meets inner vixen, and has shown its treads on runways like Gucci and Prada. We think that the over-the-knee boot will be to Fall 2009 what the ankle boot was to 2008: relentlessly chic.
These boots might be the only thing to look forward to when the cool weather hits, but we’d say they’re worth the shiver. Louboutin reminds us once again who’s boss when it comes to footwear with sultry five-inch suede heels, featuring gold-tone hardware up the entire front of the boot. With 21 loop-and-buttons, these boots are not for the weak of heart.
Chloé’s flat over-the-knee boots are a more viable option, both for your Visa bill as well as comfort. The calfskin beauties are butter soft and have criss-cross detailing up the entire boot, for all you ballerinas gone bad. Wear them with tights until it cools down, and then pair them with four-way stretch jeans for a luscious look that doesn’t compromise comfort.
Coming in last but far from least are Giuseppe Zanotti’s crocodile embossed leather over-the-knees. Just like a perfect fall day, these three-inch stacked heels are a flawless colour mix of fog gray and café au lait. Play up the texture by pairing them with your favourite knits – we suggest cashmere (and being somewhere outrageously romantic in Vienna) for the right vibe.
