This winter, you can expect to see more thigh than you ever thought necessary, thanks to the bizarre over-the-knee boot trend that's sweeping the coasts.
I say bizarre because the truth is this: most people aren't going to be able to rock this look. Sure, the streets of New York may have their fair share of model-types wearing these boots under short sweater dresses and such (retailers are presenting them as some sort of alternative to leggings). But who, besides the Rihanna
s and Taylor Momsens
of this world, is going to have the guts to show off a boot like this in all it's tush-skimming glory?
These Report Signature 'Kane' boots
(adored and featured by Nitrolicious
) take the whole overexposure thing to the next level by giving the boot a lingerie element: the option to attach the boots to a belt, via a leather garter.
Totally Womb-Raider boots. What do you think - wearable?
