I have searched far and wide for a pair of over the knee boots, I wasn’t even being picky.. I’m just short (five feet flat)! After searching everywhere, I gave up. I figured this is one trend I’m just not going to be able to participate in. I’m sure if you’re a short girl like me you are nodding your head in agreement right now. What if I told you that isn’t the case?
Not only did I find a pair that fit me, I found a pair that I absolutely love. I have to give all credit to Steve Madden for taking into account that we don’t all have model legs. You need to go out and buy yourself a pair of these boots not just because every style icon is wearing them but because I think this trend was actually made for short girls. When worn right over the knee boots elongate your legs! I swear when wearing these boots, I feel like Kendall Jenner has nothing on me.
Two things you need to remember when finding the perfect pair of over the knee boots for yourself is the fit and your hem line. You need to make sure your OTK boots fit properly or it could shorten your legs. Check to see if there is any sagging because this could drag your eyes downwards. If you do notice any sagging, there is a way to fix that, just add double sided tape. This will help keep your boots in position and keeping your legs looking long. You want to make sure your over the knee boots have the perfect skin to fabric ratio. What do I mean by that? You want to have some skin separating your boots from your skirt. If not the harsh hem line will cut your legs off making you look even shorter than normal.
