Looks like the over-the-knee style of boot isn't going away yet. I guess some girls can pull it off, but it's never really been for me. I'm more of a casual boots type of person. What styles are you wearing?

I like wearing ankle boots with at least a 3" heel. I have several pairs of closed toe ones and also an open toe pair.

I do want to get a pair of boots that come up to the knee to wear with skirts, but I'm not sure how they'd look on me.

As far as the over the knee boots, I think they look trashy/sexy -- too much for me. :lol:

Ankle boots with pants, up to the knee with skirts/dresses, both about a 3 inch heel. Haven't worn the ankle boots with a skirt or dress yet.

Over the knee boots would not be appropriate for my office, but I do like the look.

I like the up to the knee boots with a pair of skinny jeans but unfortunately my @ss is too huge at the moment to be able to pull that off lol! I swear it's growing twice as fast as everything else with this pregnancy.

Mostly ankle boots, with both pants and skirts.. I don't know about the rest of you, but to the knee or higher boots tend to be too tight around my former skater calves to be comfortable.

In general, if you have great legs and are not either short or heavy, they'll look fine. But if you are short or heavy, or your legs aren't up to the sky, my suggestion would be to buy boots that come up to the knee to the point where your skirt overlaps the boot. This connection between skirt and boot will make it so there is no "break" line, and your leg won't look cut off, and thus shorter.

I have the same problem, due to being a former gymnast now turned skater. My calves are curvy and very, shall I say... solid. I am strong, like bull. ;) But there are some brands of boots that come in a wider calf, and those can work for me.

That kind of thing does happen... And sometimes, afterwards, things shrink back up; and sometimes, they're never the same again... ;)

I bought these (http://www.dsw.com/shoe/b.o.c+by+born+martina+boot?prodId=207420&category=dsw12cat1000006)last year and it looks like they are still in. I call them my "motorcycle cop" boots. I also have the large calves issue, but I find that designers seem to be making boots a little more roomy around the calves these days.

I have three other pairs of up-to-the-knee boots: one brown suede, one brown leather, and one funky green cowboy style. I also have brown ankle boots, brown cowboy boots, and black mid-calf suede boots for cold and snowy weather. I am a boot addict and I need help, which reminds me, I don't have black ankle boots or any over-the-knee boots at all.

4 pair: low heel riding style boots in black & brown and high heel (3") in black & brown. No ankle boots anymore, as I've decided they look silly.

I live in a small beach town in the South that has many retirees. Daytime wear is decidedly conservative and casual. I was in the grocery store on Sunday afternoon and this really attractive woman was in the produce area. She was wearing black over the knee boots, almost too short black skirt and a black sleeveless shirt with black FEATHERS all over it! :eek: She looked like a high priced call girl - not trashy, but definitely too sexy for Sunday afternoon grocery shopping. All the retired grandpas were killing themselves trying not to stare :lol:

I love laced boots so I bought these (http://i.ebayimg.com/15/%21B2udJzQBmk%7E$%28KGrHqEOKjUE%29%28MMp0QRBMjnK9h N6w%7E%7E_3.JPG) recently and they're just fab.

I wear ankle boots with boot cut slacks to work all the time. I like wedge heels (more comfortable) that are about 3.5 inches high.

I also like wearing slouchy knee length boots with skirts and sweater dresses, also on at least 3.5 inch heels but not to work--inappropriate as our office dress code is pretty conservative.

Finally I wear boots that resemble Uggs but are cuter IMO ( http://moccasins-by-mail.com/productimages/women/boots/4906_150.jpg) with skinny jeans.

I can't wear over the knee boots or ankle boots with skirts since it makes me look shorter.

Those are similar to my snow boots. Very cute! I want another pair but I have to refrain. There is no reason for me to own another pair of boots!

The classic Ugg style puts the "ug" in ugly. I did see some cute Uggs last fall but they were very pricey.
