Sexy knee high and over the knee boots are always a fashionable item for the fall and winter months, but sometimes we wear them inappropriately. Although they can transform a blah outfit to a fabulous dream look, they can also make you like Julia Roberts in Pretty Women. Even though we love Roberts in that role, it is important to realize that she is starring as a prostitute.
Personally, I won’t wear heeled knee high boots with a skirt. Some flowy dresses look nice with tall-heeled knee high boots, but otherwise I’d say it’s a no. However, knee high and over the knee boots of any kind look fantastic with skinny jeans and leggings. They really spunk up an outfit and make it look more thoughtful.
Over the knee shoes are difficult to wear when it’s your first time. They feel odd, similar to the feeling you experienced when you first wore high heels. Although, once you get used to the feeling, you will be addicted to this easy and fun fashion trend. Easy meaning it transforms an outfit when worn.
These MICHAEL Michael Kors black patent leather knee-high boots are smokin’ hot. Patent leather plus black is always a stunning combination. The large elastic panel along the back is a nice perk for those that need a little ankle room to breath. Further, the panel makes it convenient to wear over thicker jeans.

My next tan pair of knee high boots remind me of something Jessica Simpson wears. This is a bulkier knee high boot that overpowers an outfit. The thick boot is a nice addition to lots of top layers and will offset a larger jacket or shawl.
