Accessory Wednesday: Over The Knee Boots
So, the annual hunt begins, although I think I might be able to make my beloved Kurt Geiger O-T-K boots last through this autumn/winter, too. I love an over-the-knee boot – they’re the one thing that allows me to feel confident in a short (ish) skirt and obviously have the advantage of hiding my horrible knees, which is why I don’t wear short skirts in the first place.
Finding stylish O-T-K boots is difficult (after years of studying this subject hard!) – they can go hooker-ish in a nano-second and I’m not after a sexy look – just a stylish, make-legs-look-a-bit-longer, cover-up-bad-knees pair. It’s important (to me) that they don’t head up to the thigh but sit just above the knee. Here’s my pick for now – none have the coveted hidden low wedge heel that my lovely KGs have so if you spot some, let me know!
This is the best value pair, I think, from ASOS with a leather upper, a little bit of lift to them and not at all hooker looking. I’d wear these with jeans, jeggings and sloppy sweaters, little boucle skirts and .. well, anything really! They’re £85 HERE.
This is the collection from Alice Temperley for John Lewis and it’s really beautiful. These boots are £200 but look so high end and tick every stylish box in the book. Find them HERE.
At £245, these Dune Black Parlour Boots are the most expensive – and probably as much as I’m prepared to pay to be honest – but I love the detailing at the top. I lust after the Stuart Weitzman suede, studded boots that kick off at around the £400 mark and just can’t quite bring myself to do it! They’re HERE.
These boots sometimes rely on a slender leg so if you have a wider calf fitting, opt for tall boots with stretch built in.
