When I was growing up, the floor of my mother's closet was monopolized by knee high boots, mostly in brown and black. I loved trying them on, but of course, as I was little, the boots would encase my entire leg. Still, I thought they looked pretty hot. These days, I still think they look pretty hot. But, in my own closet I have just a single pair: a riding style boot for cold rainy LA days or jaunts to the snowy mountains. That's about to change, especially as it's all about a knee-high boot this season. They may not be super practical for everyday, but they're undoubtedly fun to parade around in and they do wonders playing up long and short skirts and dresses. I'm loving these boots from Club Monaco, Diane Von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler, DV by Dolce Vita, Rag & Bone, Loeffler Randall and French Connection (similar to above).
