Over The Knee Boots with a Fairy Tale Fit

Want to know the burning fashion question in the office last week?
 
“How the hell do you wear over the knee boots without looking like a slut?” 
 
Well, without saying a word I set out to answer that very question.

It’s about playing a game of contrasts. Pretty, feminine dresses will temper the bad-bitch vibe that emanates from thigh-grazing boots, as well piling on layers and layers of oversized knitted pieces. Who can look like a slut whilst looking like a snug duvet burrito babe? Not me, not you, and I’m doubtful even an adult movie star could either – even with a whole host of pouting. Choosing boots in different hues to jet black will also break up the boldness. Riffing on this seasons seventies trend, terracotta, tan and burgundy are big news for thigh-high boot aficionados. If you sit more in the neutrals camp, opt for beige and grey suede.

One thing that certainly removes all sex appeal from over the knee boots: slouching. And trying to fix the slouch. Indeed there is certainly few things less sexier than strutting down the street awkwardly trying to keep your boots in place, only to keep stopping and do a not-so-sneaky tug up off the boots. The answer? Boots that fit properly. Ted & Muffy (formerly DUO boots) create boots based on calf size as well as shoe size, ensuring a perfectly snug fit. The Empress boots are also fitted with ties at the top, to double stop any slipping.

Here’s my edit of the best over the knee boots you can find on the high street, as well as a few handpicked sumptuous knits to keep cosy in all autumn/winter long.
