It’s one of those fashion trends that hits the ground running and spreads like wildfire – and we can see why. The over-the-knee boots are sexy, fashion forward and go far enough up your leg to actually keep you warm in a dress this winter. Besides the color and heel height options, there is little variation in this trend. Over-the-knee boots are basically the new Uggs, and they are a must have for the holiday season. Since they all look pretty much the same, shopping for a decent pair can be challenging. Here’s a guide to get you through the basic options of the over-the-knee boots:
