Blake Lively, Kate Moss, a model at Givenchy SS09 RTW, and Lindsay Lohan wearing over-the-knee boots
It’s only July, but style blogs everywhere are already abuzz about possible fall fashion trends. One of the most talked-about trends? Over-the-knee boots.
This trend first appeared at the Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear shows when Givenchy sent an amazing shiny black pair (pictured above) down the runway. Then Blake Lively’s character Serena famously caused an internet uproar when she wore a suede pair during Gossip Girl’s first season. Ever since, the trend has taken off! Over-the-knee boots showed up on all the Fall 2009 RTW runways, spotted everywhere from Louis Vuitton to Prada. Celebrities love this trend too: everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Rihanna to Kate Moss and even Miley Cyrus has worn over-the-knee boots recently.
Whether they’re thigh-high or slightly above the knee, leather or suede, flat or stiletto-heeled, every possible incarnation of over-the-knee boots will be available in stores this fall. But will you be buying?
Let me know what you think… would you wear over-the-knee boots? What do you think of this trend? Will you be picking some up this fall or sticking with below-the-knee boots? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
