Rock a flat pair with leggings and a leather biker jacket a la Lindsay Lohan for an edgy, dressed-down look, or team with a belted tunic just like Stella McCartney did last night for dinner with her husband in London.
Right now everyone, from Mary-Kate Olsen in New York, to Kate and Stella in London has upped the ante when it comes to boot height.
Why? Because not only does the over-the-knee boot provide that extra 3 inches or so of leg coverage (and that really does count when those Arctic winds blow), they are also the perfect solution to the age old fashion dilemma: which boots to team with a dress?
We here at ELLE are always searching for a way to combat that awkward (read: un-chic) gap between a short skirt or dress and a knee-high-boot. This year the mid-calf length skirt was our saviour. And now, so is the over-the-knee boot.
