Over Knees – Boots with Semi-Rigid Call

Cool instead of frivolous. Links: MiuMiu Over knees. Middle: Stella McCartney Over knees made of synthetic leather. Right: MiuMiu Over knees from suede.

Cool or frivolous? Over knees polarize. However, the luxury shoe companies reinforce this winter on the ends above the knee boots as described in popular shoes. First in fashion a film contributed to the shady reputation of the shoes in the 1960s with Julia Roberts.

As the 1990s, Julia Roberts aka Vivian ward in the box-office hit “Pretty Woman” with mini skirt and Over knees went their horizontal trade, the dubious reputation of the boots was sealed. Vivian Over knees were the extreme version of the shoe model: sharp, high, and also made of black patent leather. However, also suffered from existing since the 1960s flat variants under the image and Over knees disappeared for years from many designer collections and shoe shops. Until they end of the 2000s, and now this winter in subtle variants with chunky heel and Matt materials by Jimmy Choo, Chanel, MiuMiu & co. were set up again.

Trend in the 1960s

The thigh high world, however, still was in the 1960s. Emma Peel alias rig Diana she wore in the film “With umbrella, charm and melon” and gave a tough agent, Brigitte Bardot combined them to mini dress made of smooth leather and appeared in them sexy but not cheap, Parisians and Londonerinnen contributed to short skirt and A-lines coat flat versions.

The over knee-boots created originally by the way not for women, but for men. He served in the 15th century as boots for riding. Even today, some traditional encumbered with the long boots present themselves. Otherwise, the thigh from the men’s fashion has disappeared.

Thigh High Pioneers: Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent

Balenciaga brought the first Over knees women’s Roger Vivier in 1962 on the market, Yves Saint Laurent, and Pierre Cardin followed shortly afterwards with own models. The thigh came during the 1960s years reason parallel to the mini skirt revolution in fashion, he closed the gap to the part between hem and knee. In addition to leather versions, Over knees came more out of PVC and paint material on the market, just think of the futuristic Pierre Cardin collections with white, flat boots.

Suede Round Toe Over Knees Work With Cool

Models from suede leather in fashion, which were held often with hippie dresses or jeans came in the 1970s. In the 1980s were wide and flat models made of suede. As then, pretty woman 1990 presented her patent leather boots on the canvas, all Over knees got away a – also you flat – their dubious reputation.

Suede Instead of Patent Leather

Be noted, however, some rules at the thigh high wearing are: black is the color of choice.Alternatives can be dark brown, cognac or shades of grey, these are difficult to combine. The material applies: subject matter, the subtle. Suede or matte leather are compared with paint, PVC and Croco embossing – unless a serious look is desired. For this, the paragraph is also crucial. The rule is: the flatter, more serious. As an alternative, especially for little ladies, block paragraphs are recommended. A slightly round cap is a pointed, much less angular, preferable.

How to Combine Over Knees

Good fit A-lines and issued mini-skirts with pleats to the thigh. The leg is this maximum to see a hand-width, even more discreet and combining it with Black opaque tights is also suitable. The Over knees pants, however, less elegant looks and always somewhat reminiscent of Cat woman. If trousers, then make sure with a PO long, wide (!) Wear upper part. The sight can be with the right thigh model and the matching outfit of thigh high wearer instead at a fashion Amazon thinking then about “Pretty Woman”. A Downer, however, remains: Over knees – unfortunately – very slim and larger women really are good.
