Fashion has a funny way of surprising us and this is especially true for this season’s breakout style star, the over-the-knee boot. Over the knee boots are everywhere at the moment, seen on both the long limbs of supermodels, as well as any female fashion blogger worth her salt. If you can get past the former risqué connotations of this black sheep boot, you will suddenly have a wealth of new looks at your fingertips.
The material-du-jour for your over the knee boots? A soft suede finish with an elasticated fit for a streamlined figure and a comfortable ride. Nothing like their slightly shady ancestors, these boots are chic, understated and easy to wear. Choose black so you can wear with everything, or an on-trend taupe shade for a flattering, leg-lengthening effect.
Pair with leggings, jeans, skirts, culottes or that little black dress for a wintry take on a classic look. Wear without tights if you’re feeling brave or throw on an oversized jumper to keep it casual.
We’ve got a complete collection of SOLE over the knee boots for every eventuality. Choose a flat boot (SOLE Hassi Boots, £69.99) if you want an all-day look, or go for a heel to up the glamour (SOLE Hydro Boots -£79.99-£89.99). Consider a thigh high boot (SOLE Mercury Boots, £59.99) if you want to push the boundaries, or if it’s all a bit much, opt for a slightly longer below the knee boot (SOLE Valkyrie Boots, £99.99).
