HOT HOT HOT!!! I love over the knee boots, i saw these amazing boots in Guess yesterday but they were too expensive for me right now maybe in a month or two!! Great post!

Wow. These are all so awesome. I really love that Versace ad. Great post. I loved it. Cheers!

Erika said...

Yes! Yes! Yes! I adore them all. I finally bought a pair myself...actually, they were supposed to be knee-high, but I'm short, so they go over my knees, and I adore the look! I think that a wide circumference around the knee makes them appear more casual - when it's a legging look it's more sleek. Love this! :)

I am so in love-Rodarte and Prada are still my tops-but I wouldn't mind if teh Chloe's came home with me...

Leah said...

I wish...I wish...I wish... If only I can justify the purchase of over-the-knee boots, no second thoughts, I'll immediately grab one. But see, it's quite unrealistic for a tropical girl to spend on over-the-knee boots. But I'm really lusting for one... I love the suede wedge boots.

Jaime said...

Love this look- I have my Chinese Laundry pair that I adore. Though of course, I'd take any of these designer ones too :)

pretty*pink*rat said...

Love these looks, Carrie!! I'm feeling them in suede especially, it takes them one step further away from hooker :)

Now if only I had model thin legs to put in a pair...sigh!

Yofany said...

write it on my shopping list.

janettaylor said...

so so fashionable. I bought a black ones from Biba on the last winter. :-)

Little Red said...

I feel like these wouldn't be flattering on my short legs. However, I absolutely love them! I definitely need to try a pair!

Life's short. Type fast. said...

i'm sort of obsessed with these! people have been wearing them all over the city this weekend. i can't wait to get myself a pair!

Chessa! said...

I am completely obsessed with this look. I have a pair in brown that I bought almost three years ago in Paris and another in black that I bought at the same shop last year...I adore them. I wore them out and had them resoled. I adore them. I think I might have to go back there just to visit that shop. so happy it's a major trend this year..although I hae to say I felt kind of hip wearing them when no one else was:)

Penny said...

"Think haute, not hooker darlings"....CLASSIC!

Little Rus said...

Love them all! x

Jessica said...

I love love love these boots! I've been shopping high and low for some that A)I can afford and B)Fit up my athletic legs! Here's hoping...fingers crossed!

HeatherClark said...

great post! i love over the knee boots but i don't have a pair yet...can't decide if i should do heeled or more on the flat side. still figuring out my plan of attack for boots this season...

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

I'm loving so much boots lately, and these are no exception! I'n in love with the Fendi ones! xo

Midtown Girl said...

Carrie - I have the Fendi Secret code ones you have pictured, in gray. I LOVE these boots but I cannot get them over my knees and I know I am not that huge - lol!

I have yet to wear them, got a great deal on them from Barney's (half off, last yr!) and am stuck..maybe the shoe guy can stretch these beauties out for me??? What to do!

XOXO Amy

freeteyme said...

Love your opening remark - think haute not hooker!!

michellehendra said...

over the knee boots are so the 'IT' things! :) especially those which are made by Rodarte.. THUMBS UP! Lovin it. except for LiLo, she's not working it.. that over the knee white boots doesn't appeal for her.. LOL

Couture Cookie said...

I am so in love with this trend! I premiered my black suede thigh highs the other day, and although it was a little too hot outside, I felt great! :)

xoxo

meraldia said...

Well, I am not tall enough to wear them but I do like them on other women!

Katherine said...

Love these! The Jimmy Choos look so comfy and warm... Fun post!

MizzJ said...

Such a hot look! How do shorties wear it though without looking even shorter?

LPC said...

I am so surprised but I actually love the Prada waders.

Susan said...

love them, not sure I could pull them off though :))
have a lovely day, dearest CC
xoxo

Hanako66 said...

love this trend...i have a pair of flat otk boots from last year and have pre-ordered a pair for this year!

KIRAFASHION said...

oh my God!
I am crazy about over knee boots!
I do love them and with a pair of denim pants are the best for me...so french girl!
I am planning to buy one that I saw at the net from Topshop! I hope I can make it!

Many kisses and thanks for this wonderful post!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These boots are all stunning. Oh, how I wish I was tall. I can't wear over-the-knee boots without looking like a midget. :(

yiqin; said...

I want to try but I am so short :(

WendyB said...

Love that last one...wondering if I can justify another pair of over the knee boots -- I've had a pair of Manolos forever. Maybe they're getting old? ;-)

nookie said...

love them

Blair said...

Love them! I especially love the way they look over jeans.

Vitania said...

I could never pull the over the knee boots off - but they sure do make a statement!

anhesty said...

i have been dreaming about over the knee boots. i bought some a few years ago at VS and i want a new pair! mine are pointy toe ones. do you think they are outdated?

Meg said...

so in love with over-the-knee boots right now!

LifestyleBohemia said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Versace boots!
Awesome selections.
Have a great day!

Love, Suusje

Kristina Krug said...

Great post! I love boots! It's about time for them!

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous boots! I love love love the Gucci ones especially... them and the polka-dotted dress. I want I want.

anhesty said...

thanks for the response and comment! whew! cos i was seeing more rounded toe boots this season and not so many pointy toes. i didn't want to spend on money to buy a new pair! yay!

Ashley said...

I love all of your picks! I especially love the boots that are tight to the leg, almost so that they look like they are thick stockings (if that makes any sense?)

Elizabeth Marie said...

OMG! YESSSSSS!!!!!! I am so obsessed with boots as I'm sure you know haha!

Haute not hooker! LOVE IT! XO

Myriam said...

i LOVE over-the-knee boots, the flat ones above all!

Stephanie said...

Awesome post. These boots are gorgeous. Love 'em. Wished I could carry off that look.

Rachel Follett said...

I love this look with a cute girly dress. Beautiful inspiration.

issa said...

OTK boots.. HOTNESS.

Milltini said...

I love them all, but I think I'm going to stay on the sidelines with this trend. I figure it will probably go out sooner rather than later (only to come back again someday down the road) and I think I am going to reserve my boot money for regular boots. Who knows, maybe I'll take a chance on a less pricey pair?

HiFashion said...

I am sooo in love with this trend. I'm definitely on the look out for a pair of them.

Averill said...

I love the sky high Gucci boots that look almost like leather pants. Gorgeous.

Hunters Glory said...

ave ALWAYS loved this look!

All of them...greatness ...really enhances the legs! Tall gals make me wanna go climbing!

Good post cc!

;)

The Anthology said...

Now, I absolutely love over-the-knee boots, but I'm wondering how on earth I could pull them off at work without looking a tad Pretty Woman. What do you think? Is it possible?

Lily G. said...

These boots are so hot and fierce!

Taylor Sterling said...

I love these!! I know you do too! Still don't own any...maybe it is time to go grab some!

jess said...

I love the Rodarte ones.

clarewbrown said...

I love these so much, CC!! Esp, the flat ones. I think I would look a little silly with the heeled ones.

LAYNE said...

love love love all of them. I bought a pair last winter and wore them so much i had to get the bottom replaced. I am currently looking for a grey suede pair :)

xx

Mimi said...

i've been a little iffy on this trend but, i'm loving these pictures you have on here. so pretty!!

alexkeller said...

i once had a hooker pair - even dressed them up for Halloween. got some dirty looks....but had to give them away - feet grew after the babe

Savvy Gal said...

i have been looking but still have not found a pair to flatter me yet. : (

stellarvixen said...

beautiful beautiful indeed~~
grey suede seems fitting for me
hmmm

i luv this ppost..me & sis were talkin about over-the-knee boots
and there you go helping us with the selection of designs & colors

thank you CC

pigtails and blushing cheeks said...

they all look fabulous
!! you've converted me to thigh high boots fan club hahah

Terence Sambo said...

Ouuuuuu they are fierce but quite tricky to pull off :o]

Choo said...

I need some of this

joannapple said...

I love these simple, brown over-the-knee flats cause they suit my style, but adore all black highhills !!! I should think about buying one or two... :)

Carrie said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS POST!!! I love this trend. I think it's very modern and fresh as oppose to boots in the 90s that only went up to the knee. I didn't realize it was everywhere on the runway. When I did my post about this trend, I was only able to select a few looks from a few designers. This is a great post, Carrie. I love seeing all the different over the knee boots.

styletrip said...

the over the knee boots will be the new it long time from now on- warm and funky.

Dana said...

Hello dear CC!!

Very Pretty Womanish jeje. I love them!!! I want to get a pair for myself :)

The Haute-Shopper said...

Such a fab post! The thigh high is at the top of my shopping list for Fall! I'm still doing my research, but I'm so glad that all the looks out there are non-Pretty Woman, which used to be my biggest worry with the look. I can't even decide which of these is my favorite... I want them all!

KINHA said...

Hi my friend!

Etrapar said...

Dani @ Weddings Fresh said...

daisychain said...

I am craving a pair of over knee boots...shame they aren't so practical for where I live, even flat ones :(

pranksygang said...

thea said...

Urgh! I feel like a whore in my Verscace boots.

Style Redux 2 said...

This is such a sexy but elegant look-fabulous!

Patty Ann said...

loveeeeeeeeee over the knee boots
i can never tell whether i like when something i love becomes really popular or not. on the one hand it makes finding the perfect pair a lot easier because there are so many more to choose from, but on the other hand then everyone will be wearing it and it's not as unique. what do you prefer???
