Please visit the brilliant and amazing,  www.thesartorialist.com for more images of over the knee boots. They’ve included different photos, some that are quite street and sexy.  I worship boots, they are more comfortable and add an edge. But with this sexy style, I tread lightly – the line is fine, and it’s one I don’t like crossing.

Mara’s Tips for Over the Knee Boots:  Wear boots over legging, jeans or with a skirt that’s like the one i’m wearing (maybe longer).  The key is to choose a skirt that loose, or a distressed jean skirt, which hits above the knee. I don’t recommend a tight skirt or dress.  Try a long blazer or cardigan on top, with a long strap bag -all will elongate your body.  A loose, short dress with a blazer or jean jacket also looks incredibly cool paired with over the knee boots.  The image below from The Sartorialist shows a great way to pair an over the knee boot during the day, she’s only showing a little leg, and the rest is 1970’s preppy.
