Serial Snooze Artist, Vol. 7: Over-the-knee Boots


I’m still over-the-moon (er, knee) for these boots. Can you blame me?


I’ve been on the hunt for a cute pair of over-the-knee boots for quite some time, and they’ve all been out of my price range – until the Jeffrey Campbell Basie bootie.

They pair so well literally everything in my closet — and the material keeps my gams warm, too, which has been a crucial component in shoe selection these past few weeks. Spring, where are you?

The zipper detailing at the base of the boot makes them very easy to slip on (and off — but why would you?) and the stretchy, over-the-knee shell will keep you very cozy this fall and come winter.

Over-the-knee boots are a tricky trend to master, so here’s a few tips to keep in mind if you’re keen to try this style: Make sure you keep it covered up top. I like to pair mine with a chic sweater dress or longer-in-length tunic that hits at the thigh (below that fingertip, schoolgirl style) and allows for some breathing room between your boots and hemline.
