I’m in love with the all the tall boots coming out this Fall. Over the knee, boot leggings, thigh highs. Whatever you want to call them, I love them.

  1. Love this trend, but only when they’re used like leggings, a la Rodarte in last season’s shows, and not when there’s a flash of skin between boot end and clothing start. It’s a really fine line between hot and vulgar.

  2. Great choice of boots for this blog post.
    I have to partly agree with Melissa; showing that much skin when wearing those boots nears nakedness.

  3. It is a very fine line. I think that is what makes the thigh high boots so appealing. I do agree that the boot legging is the best look and worn like pants. You should see no skin. I do have a secret desire for the Prada waders though. hee hee

  4. LOVE the thigh-high boots trend! and i also agree with Melissa & Kimberly – there shouldn’t be any skin visible.
