From CollegeFashion: Try Over-The-Knee Boots!

This post is courtesy of our fashionable friends at Have you checked them out yet?

Hot last year and coming back for round two, over-the-knee boots are both hot for fall and tricky to wear. But if you know what you’re doing (and you will after you read this), they could be the best fall accessory you’ll ever own.

If you weren’t sure about these boots last year, now is the perfect time to try them out!

Tips and Tricks for Rocking Over-The-Knee Boots

Much like any other trend, consider proportions for the most flattering look. The perfect pair of boots should hit about an inch above your knees. For hip coverage, consider pairing them with a longer top or tunic.

Squeamish about showing too much thigh? This trend looks just as chic with jeans, jeggings, or leggings.

Want to rock this trend, but low on cash? Try wearing a pair of mid-calf or knee-high boots with a tall pair of socks underneath for a very “model off duty” look!

Short girls can rock this trend too. Pint-sized stars such as the Olsen twins, Hayden Panettiere, and Hillary Duff have all been spotted in over-the-knee boots. I’m only 5’2″ so I understand the hesitation. As long as the boot hits the right part of your thigh, it will look just fine! If you’re still nervous, pair your boots with a pair of leggings that match their color– your legs will look miles long!

Let the boots be the focus. As with all trends, a little goes a long way.

Ready to buy a pair? Look for styles that can be adjusted to last throughout the seasons. After we featured the Chinese Laundry Tripin Boots last season, I rushed out and bought myself a pair. These boots have no heel (perfect for day or night), can be scrunched down to make a shorter slouchy boot, or can be buttoned or unbuttoned for several different looks!
