Kinky boots

Taylor Tomasi Hill
Over-the-knee boots are all the rage this season, but they're extraordinarily hard to pull off. You run the risk of looking like Julia Roberts in the opening scenes of Pretty Woman, and we all know that's a before picture that only looks cute in that particular movie!

Be that as it may, celebrities and fashionista's the world over have been sporting variations on the theme, from flats to stacked heel versions, and having been pulling off the over-the-knee look with aplomb. I've included a couple of my favourite looks, with Olivia Palermo winning out over everyone else (no surprise there), although Modus Operandi's Taylor Tomasi Hill comes in a close second. I also really like Gwyneth's version for 'the hip mom on the go'. That's totally doable for an afternoon of errands, right? Of course, I may want to borrow her body to go with that look!

Olivia Palermo always gets it just right

Olivia Palermo can do no wrong in my fashion book - that's why I've included her twice!
