Knee high boots with skirts?
I like to wear knee high boots with stilletoe heels and a knee length skirt. I think it is a great "look". My friend tells me it is passe...that the look has been played out. Any opinions ladies?

I like this look.

And who cares if its in fashion or not? If you want to wear it and it makes you feel good, then wear it!

here in scandinavia, its really practical and i think it still looks quite sharp and boots are generally sexy, aren't they? (at least the angel chick on the home page for this website is wearing them)

i think its a classic look, although i always want new boots every year with slight modifications to the heel or toe.

Knee high boots paired with skirts are classic.

I think it sounds great. But I would say that stiletto shoes or boots with a mini skirt is a bit over. Knee length is fine.

Actually, I'm wearing knee boots and a full knee length skirt right now! I don't give a **** if its passe. I felt great leaving the house this morning!

It depends on the occasion.

I wear:

Knee-high boots & Mini Skirt to: University

Work (I work in a Designer Boutique): Pumps & Pencil-Skirt

Pumps & Mini: Clubs

Pumps OR Boots with Pencil-Skirt: Shopping, dating

Yes, the Mini seems to be out-of-fashion but it`s just a CLASSIC and a damn hot thing to wear so I stick to it! :p

super sexy look. i do have a pet peeve about this look and that's when the boots don't hug the calf & end up clinking around. looks cheap somehow & since my calves are sooooo skinny, it's hard to find beautiful(ie. NOT elastic) boots that fit. anyone else have this problem?

i'm the opposite, trying to stuff my chunky calves into my boots. The whole jean into boots look is rank on me, but with the right boots, the boot/knee length skirt look is okay.

it's a big deal when i find boots that fit snugly up my calf...and i agree...that is the only way for them to fit...
no 'gapping'...!!!

ditto
it's classic, sexxxy and you feel good too
i don't do stilletos, but i do have a balanced heel....
it's my fave for spring/fall

re: making the boots hug the calf - you can take them to a cobbler and having them taken in - OR - as the shoestore if they have their own cobbler. i had that done for the first time at Aldo - the cobbler came in and fitted me - took boots away and returned then custom fitted to my calves. yah!

if your calves are just a little thin, then buying lace-ups (with a zip on the side preferably) then you can tighten the laces and that'll help a bit.
