As over the knee and thigh high boots have made a comeback lately, I've found myself drooling over every outfit Perrie Edwards of Little Mix steps out in paired with the look and eyeing every girl I see on the street with the pair that I suddenly feel I need to get.
I've come close to ordering the three pictured above from Missguided, ASOS, and Boohoo countless times on separate occasions, but have never actually checked out with them. There are a few things stopping me. For starters, I love the more slouchy look with the Boohoo boot, but I also think I want a more fitted boot like the ASOS one. And, since I don't have a pair yet, I want my first pair to be black, but I love the heel and cut of the Missguided boot. Needless to say, it's been a never-ending struggle.
With Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales last week, I came very close to purchasing the ASOS boots, but, once again, found myself deleting it from my cart. On top of wanting every version of this trend possible, I think I'm also hesitant about committing because 1. I'm short, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull off such a tall boot, and 2. I feel like boots, especially ones that will go up over my knees, are the type of shoes I need to try on before actually purchasing.
My promise to myself is that I will have a pair of versatile over the knee boots by... some point in the future. I just have to get myself to a store to try on a couple of different pairs and decide what I want. Or, decide that it's worth the risk and just go for it with one of the boots above!
Are there any trends that you're dying to try, but haven't yet?
