First Look: Over-the-knee boots from Jimmy choo for H&M

An image from Jimmy Choo's H&M line leaked on the Fashion Spot. The over-the-knee boots cost 1,799 DKK, or about $345. The line — which includes shoes, bags, and accessories for men and women and women's apparel — hits stores November 14. At that price, they should be real leather.

Over the knee boots is -again- one of the fall's biggest trends, but wear them carefully. Thigh-high boots have always been strongly associated with prostitutes (Do you remember Julia Roberts at Preety Woman?) although now they are teamed with jersey dresses to give a sexy look to even the most ''good girls''. Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo spoke to The Sunday Times about this trend: "They make women feel strong, confident and sexy. They also elongate the legs."

If you intend to attempt the trend then you should keep in mind that it is never acceptable to wear them next to bare flesh. Instead team them with tight trousers or thick tights and a skirt which finishes just above the boots. Are you loving it or hating it?
