Want to be smack bang on trend this season? Our Fashion Editor Laura Sheehan explains why over-the-knee boots are a must have this Christmas.
Over-the-knee boots are everywhere this season. Whether they are paired with a short skirt or a floaty dress, they are completely on trend. 
 
Stylish ladies like Olivia Palermo, Miranda Kerr and Eva Longoria have all been photographed wearing over-the-knee boots in the last few months, proving that the trend has made its comeback once again this season. 
 
The most popular colours this autumn for over-the-knee boots are black, grey and brown (tan shade). 
 
High street stores such as River Island, Topshop and Zara have many different pairs of over-the-knee boots, ranging from suede to leather. 
 
If you want to join this trend but are on a budget then look no further than Penneys. For just €28, one can get your hands on a pair of black or brown suede boots that have a good, chunky heel. 
 
I’ve heard many people say that they don’t want to buy over-the-knee boots purely based on the reason that they are not sure how to wear them. 
 
These boots go great with a baggy sweater and skinny jeans or with a short skirt and polo neck. They instantly dress up a casual outfit. 
 
One outfit that keeps popping up online is a sweater dress teamed with over-the-knee boots. It’s the perfect outfit for this autumn. 
 
Many people also think that only girls with long legs can wear these boots, but that’s just a myth. If Olivia Palermo, who is 5’4” can wear them, then so can you!
