Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
I think so, they are much more flattering than the ones which stop mid shin, they cut off at the fattest point, and sometimes you want something longer than ankle boots. Thigh high can be a bit "pretty woman" or towie.
Personally I like ones which are just over the knee and have two slim fitting suede over the knee flat boots, but have got a pair of knee high biker boots also and a couple of knee high high heeled suede boots. All go great with skinny jeans.
I think the rule is not to wear what's fashionable, but what looks good on you.
I bought a navy suede pair of Clarks Caddy Belle boots recently. Got home and two days later saw they did them in a black leather, too, so bought them. And then saw them reduced in burgundy suede, so now own them. I've gone from no knee-highs to three pairs inside a fortnight. They're meant to be OTK but I'm tall (5'8") so they sit beautifully. I'm sure they're still discounted, and they're super-comfortable; we walked for miles around Kew Gardens in them this week and my feet never ached once.
