Studio Style with Anita Gunn: How To Wear This Season’s Over-The-Knee Boots

PolitiChicks.comThey’re baaaaaaack! Just when you finally parted with your over-the-knee boots, they’re suddenly on every runway in 2014. The good news is, this year’s style is more wearable and, shall we say, less trashy looking.

But how do you wear them without looking like you’re trying out for the stage version of Pretty Woman? 

Here are some styling tips:

Avoid the urge to get over-the-knee boots with very high stiletto heels or platforms. While you might like the extra inches to your stature, you risk looking very tacky or yesteryear at best. Look for any type of heel that has more substance to it than a thin stiletto.

If you’re wearing a dress or tunic, add tights, leggings or thigh high socks in a complimentary color. Make sure the dress is not more than a few inches above the top of the boot (unless you are wearing tights).

If you’re wearing skinny jeans, add a button down shirt and boyfriend jacket or chunky sweater and scarf.

If you’re petite choose a boot with a high heel to elongate your legs. Do not chose a boot that comes up too high over the knee, and be sure to match your leggings, tights and jeans in the same color as the boots to give you some length.

If you’re tall, try a flat style. You can even go thigh high as opposed to just above the knee. You can also go bare legged.

Avoid too many contrasting colors, and refrain from wearing low cut tops or skin tight short dresses.

Below are some examples of high and low heeled over-the-knee boots in all price ranges and colors.

Anita Gunn

California PolitiChick "Anita Gunn" is a closeted conservative working the entertainment business. Anita started at a major talent agency, assisting a well-known music agent, and is now a VP at a major movie studio. Anita grew up in a very liberal Jewish home, and bought the Utopian dream of a one world government and social justice for all. Anita did her best to "save the planet," pontificating about how the evil Republicans and greedy corporations were destroying the earth. 9/11 shook Anita's foundation and everything that she believed. By the time Obama burst into the scene in 2007, Anita was morphing into a conservative. Of course, coming out of the closet as a conservative in the entertainment industry is pretty much career suicide, she says, so in 2011, the name "Anita Gunn" was born. Anita has done commentary about the culture war on such radio shows as the Dr. Gina Show, Real Side with Joe Messina and Socialism is not an Option on Blog Talk Radio. Anita started a secret conservative Facebook group which has 1000 active members, and is part of another secret group of artists who behind such videos as Cruz Against the Machine. There are still some remnants from Anita's liberal days, including the love of Astrology and wearing platforms and bellbottoms--and yet signs of her conservative switch can be seen by her ever-present gun necklace. Anita says her goal is to help rebrand and hip up the conservative movement to include more artists, musicians, actors, gays and minorities and young people. Anita's belief is that if she saw the light, there are others who would also embrace the conservative movement, if only just shown the way. Follow Anita Gunn on Twitter @AnitaGunn1.
