Knee boots and bare legs?

15 replies

Betty12 · 04/10/2022 21:03

Late to the party, but it seems knee boots are making a come back which is great as I've searched our a really comfy pair with a block heel from the back of my wardrobe. Planning to wear with above the knee A-line skirts. Usually I'd wear black opaques but I'm wondering if bare legs is more the thing nowadays (see pic) and also whether I can get away with it at 40 something!

Knee boots and bare legs?

I’m sure you look stunning out of boots and will look even more stunning in them just go for it x

No - if it's the weather for knee high boots then you need tights. They look silly with bare legs unless you are basically a gazelle.

That outfit looks nice but surely not practical for winter?

If warm enough I put a bit of fake tan on, and wear boots with bare legs - works well

You need amazing legs for that look to work.

This look barely suits anyone. That model is an exception and in RL probably wouldn’t look right anyway.

Is the model bare legged or wearing sheer tights?

I agree in real life that would look terrible, even if just from the point of view of the sheer oddness of it being cold enough for knee boots but warm enough for bare legs.

I would have to at least compromise on sheer tights! I'd be freezing!

When I read your title I thought, no that would not work but it’s a lovely look on the model.

What about when you sit down though?!

Even the model in the picture would look better with good sheer tights on IMO

And if you need a jumper and boots, you'll legs with be all blue/red with goosebumps without them.

She's got sheer tights on.

Definitely wear either sheer or lighter colour tights. Bare legs and that skirt with boots look awful.

My 17 yo daughter has stolen some of my knee boots (just over the knee in fact) and gone out in them with a teeny teeny skirt tonight and bare legs . She looks fab (apart from the crop top/bustier thing she is wearing which is a step too far in my middle aged opinion).

She is 17 though, with perfect legs, 5'10 and a size 8. And doesn't feel the cold either.

That model is standing in a warm, well-lit studio. Where will you be wearing the boots? If you plan to journey outside, wear tights.

Don’t forget on cold autumn days, you could end up with mottled ‘corned beef’ legs. Best keep to tights.
