Limits are being stretched…up to our thighs. This season the must-haves in footwear are over-the-knee boots, ever since they were spotted on the runways of Marc by Marc Jacobs to Yigal Azrouёl and celebrities such as Anne Hathaway, Kate Moss, and Hayden Panettiere. While the trend is exploding, the trick is to keep the look classy and not trashy, especially if you’re buying a pair with a heel over 2”. To offset the exuding sex appeal of these boots and make them more day appropriate (and less Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman), layer a pair of opaque tights or jeans underneath, and keep your top half relatively covered with something like a Shaker-Stitch Cowl-Neck Sweater , $59.50 from Express. Also keep an editing eye when accessorizing because these boots are the statement piece of any outfit — guaranteed.
