do you think they can be worn with a skirt and not llok trashy if the entire look is very dressed up? the skirt i'm wearing with them comes just above the knee ( maybe 3-4 inches) and the boots are right at the knee. i'm wearing this tomorrow and wanted some opinions.

stupidly i'll wear it no matter what but i wanted opinions on what you all thought would look trashy. i knw super short skirts and like a skanky top would be bad but its very dressed up and i feel very comfortable in it...what do u think?

darling...3-4 inches above the knee is NOT just above the knee...
it is considerably shorter...and i would not recommend a heel of any kind with a skirt that short...period...my two cents...

I think it you keep the top fairly conservative, you would be just fine. I wear that look often. I prefer skirts with heels, no matter the length. Just don't like the body posture/overall look of flats, unless of course, you can carry yourself like a ballet dancer. That said, I also do not like the trashy/short cheap skirt, tiny tank top, 5 inch platform heeled stripper ensemble either.

It's about finding a balance, AND your personal taste and comfort level. Just wear what works for you.

Opinions On This Look...
Okay, I thought I'd get a little daring and go for a casual, stilleto boot with jeans like the pic shows. What are your feelings and thoughts of this look as I am a man? I already realize some of you may be averse to this and I don't blame you one bit. It is different and it is non-traditional, but based on the pic, what are your feelings?

while I don't like it and prefer round toe boots, i think it works for some people. if you like the way it looks, go for it.

Personally I don't like it. Do whatever you feel comfortable with though.

I say "Go for it!"

I thought I was over the pointy toes, but you make it look sexy and timeless. It reminds me of how Johnny from Menswear used to wear high-heeled boots under trousers. But your look is even more risque- and I like that.
