Yesterday I posted on trends for 2010, one of these is the new over the knee boot, and thigh high boot.

As you can see the boot that goes up mid-thigh is going to need a much shorter skirt, or pair of shorts to wear with them, you could possibly wear them over a skinny jean. As they are a more extreme fashion they will suit the younger wearer, so as not to look too fashion victim. You may find it hard to walk and sit down as the knee is quite constricted by the leather.
Over the knee boot by Giuseppe Zanotti from Shop Savannahs
If you want to try this trend, go for a pair that hits just over the knee, like the ones above, these won’t restrict your knees as much as the thigh high, are on-trend, but not as extreme. I can easily see these worn with a dress or skirt that stops just above the knee, or alternatively with a skinny jean (check out Donna and again) without looking MDAL. They can also be folded down to just below the knee if that’s your preference.
The benefits of a knee-high or longer boot – they make your legs look longer, and can disguise the size of your calves (if they bother you).
