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!

ASOS Overtheknee Boot
ASOS

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.

Somerset by Alice Temperley

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.

Dune Black Parlour
Dune Black Parlour

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.
