Still Searching for... Over-the-Knee Boots

First I thought it was only a fashion blib, but I guess over-the-knee (in all varieties - as boots or stockings, with shorts, skirts or dresses) is here to stay. I tried to get some at Topshop, but they were too clunky and in the end I returned them. I think the flat heeled ones look best, but low heels are not fo me. Still looking for the perfect pair...

I'm still having trouble finding boots that will close around my calves :) Hopefully, the search will get better as I continue to lose weight. But I do think that a great pair of over the knee boots will come in handy for years to come!

CL, said...

yes, i agree, the flat heeled ones are best :) good luck finding your perfect pair, unfortunately, due to my height (i'm rather short), thigh high's make me look even shorter :( haha, oh well! happy easter ♥

SabinePsynopsis said...

I've got the same problem, CL. And the high-heeled ones look a bit like a hooker...

Audrey Allure said...

I love over the knee boots. I have flat heeled ones because I felt like the heels looked like hooker boots haha.

drollgirl said...

i totally understand! every year i seem to go on the hunt for the perfect boot. it takes a lot of work! and sometimes a lot of money! ha! but sometimes not. :)

Clare said...

Definitely feeling the over the knee anything at the moment, socks are my favourite, boots are still a little daunting!

Yeah, it took me a while to warm up to them but then I saw a girl wearing them and it suddenly all made sense! I like the flat styles too and recently got a taupe pair from Faith. I've only test driven them a couple of times but I think I love them!

Thanks for your comment!
Well, baptiste is very elegant, he always look great in shoots, and I love the chemistry between he and Freja at Chanel campaignes. But I don't know, is not my favourite, I fell like he doesn't have a personality.

Carmen said...

Thank you for the birthday wishes!

I hope you find the perfect pair!

hope you'll find a pair!

S.Elisabeth said...

Ahh over the knee don't look good on me, as I'm far too short for them! Love the picture btw!

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi there-good luck with the search, I found flat heeled ones worked best for me! Have a good Easter my dear!

what i would have worn... said...

I love over-the-knee boots but they just don’t love me back. They always seem to sink into the squishy bit of flesh just above my knee which just isn’t a look I’m going for...

Susu Paris Chic said...

I found mine here in Paris at a store called Bata. I just love them. They have a little belt that helps them to stay up. (I have an issue with boots falling down. Big foot, small calves maybe;) Over-the-knees, in all forms, are here to stay!

Julia said...

Yeah, the ones I have are flat, but they're not perfect. I really love these ones you've pictured here, actually. I'm moving to a colder climate, so I need to stock up on boots; let us know if you find the perfect pair!

xx

SabinePsynopsis said...

Susu Parus Chic - Oh, I'm hoping to go to Paris soon, perhaps I can check out Bata.

What I would have worn - I'll definitely make sure they don't squeeze the squishy bit of flesh over the knee ;-) (the things a woman has to worry about...)

Julia - flat's not good for sadly. I'll look like a short legged dwarf. But will let you know if I'm successful with my find. (I always brag about my shopping exploits anyway...)
The ones in the picture are an old pair of boots I cut apart. (brutal, I know, but now I like them)

Cindy Whitehead said...

You will find them - take your time and wait for the "perfect" pair. (-:

Couture Carrie said...

Me too, darling!

Harriet said...

I kind of feel the same - at first I thought they were going to be a bit of a fad, but I have grown to like them. A lot of pairs are a bit samey though, so I'm holding out for the perfect pair!

Elizabeth said...

What an interesting pair of...boots, shoes, shoes and boots? I say go with a whole boot :)

Dancing Branflake said...

I love over the knee boots but I think they would dwarf me. Very strking though. I wonder if they have any cute ones that aren't black.

Cafe Fashionista said...

I have five pairs of flat-heeled over the knee boots - three are suede and two are leather. Faux, of course! Honestly, they are some of the most versatile forms of footwear on the planet! I actually wrote an entire post devoted to shopping for over the knee boots, and how to style them once! http://cafefashionista.blogspot.com/2009/11/style-secrets-over-knee-boots.html. :)

Eva said...

I found my perfect pair at Zara, of all places. Then I went to Milan and Venice and saw dozens of boots with 10 times higher prices, but the ones I bought were better than all of them. The heel isn't so high either, only 10 cms.

Bardot In Blue said...

xoxo Haleigh @ Bardot in Blue aka your new fan in Paris!

I need to find the right over the knee boots!!

Clare said...

I know! I bought an adorable pair two years ago, but they are starting the wear and look bad. So I am on a quest for another pair of flat, black, over the knee leather boots. Agh! The quest seems endless!

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

Finding the "right" over-kness is like searching for the "perfect" love;-)

Tasha said...

Good luck on your search!! I still don't own a pair either!

J said...

i def like flat heels over the knee boots, preferably in a blk or gray! good luck in finding the perfect pair!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I have a pair that are suede in a linen color. They're amazing and I get a lot of compliments on them but sometimes I can't help but feeling like a bit of a prostitute in them. Could be that I'm trapesing around NYC in them :)

Good luck finding a pair!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I am still on the prowl for some fabulous over-the-knee boots that will suit my tiny frame (I'm five feet tall)...sigh

mom & son said...

I've been looking for a pair of OTK boots too.
Hope I can find it soon!

hélène said...

They're a great investment, i've had mine for years and i still love them! I would definitely look on ebay if i were you... you'll probably have a hard time in stores right now cause all the summer stuff is in now.. good luck!

Margaret said...

I agree, the flat ones are the most chic. And hey, thanks for visiting my blog! Happy it brought me to yours. X

gant watch said...

I really like this look! Big fan

Pia said...

i too thought this was a fad... but it's here to stay. and i wish i had a pair to rock too! good luck! hope you find the perfect pair (and on sale!)

annamargrete said...

That looked kinda cool :D

The Zhush said...

Your photo is great. I agree, the flat ones look best, if the heels get too high, you could be in Julia Roberts/Pretty Woman territory! Good luck with your quest.

Angie Muresan said...

I got a really good deal on a flat-heeled pair at Neiman Marcus in Los Angeles. I just need to remember to wear them more often.
Best of luck finding a pair for yourself.
