KNEE HIGH BOOTS - Sexy or Slutty? How do you wear without looking cheap!?

I have a pair of black leather knee-highs, the heels are 3inches high, and inch and a bit wide, so not stillettos. But no matter what i wear with them, i look so tarty.

If i was to wear a skirt above the knee it would make me look like a tart, and if i wore it with a skirt below knee it still doesnt look right. I even wore it over my jeans and it looked silly.

How can i get away with wearing knee highs without looking like a prostitute?

The heels are chunky, am i just being paranoid or is there a way i should dress to look good in knee-high boots.

I always wear decent non revealing tops, im 5'2 and have a pear shaped slim body (small top, curvy bum, slim legs).

Should i go for kneehighs without heels? Can they still look sexy?

Just wear them you sound good looking enough to pull it off no matter what you wear. don't worry about other peoples opinions they are just jelous of yer fine bod x
Soz hun, your hot..end of story! x
Yeah I pretty much agree, I think the knee highs are always skanky maybe some cute ankle boots or something like that to wear under jeans, those are cute.
why not try wearing them under a pair of jeans or trousers that is wat i do i know it is a bit of a waste and u cant really se the knee high boots but i think it loks nice and if u wear them under jeans it can be day to day wear aswell
I wear my brown knee high's over my skinny drain pipes.dont look sluty at all
Why not just let yourself look and feel sexy, even if it does cross the line of your usual dressing patterns. You use the word slutty, but it does not mean that you have to act that way, you have the boots, use em. Feel good.
its kinda dominatrix but if you can pull them off go for it
No you can wear knee high boots without looking slutty. Wear them with a nice skirt just above the knee some nice pantyhose and a tasteful shirt. It doesn't matter what you wear as long as you look classy.
i think you're just being paranoid. the fact your worried about looking slutty means you cant be! does that make sense?!!
I have the same problem- I am Bryan D's girlfriend using his log in btw -lol- so this isnt a guy answering your question!!!!

I would say that the only items to wear just now that dont look slutty is skinny jeans tucked in, wrap dresses and most defo jersey dresses as they are hot this season and look fab with black knee high boots!!!
dont wear skinny jeans, just wear reg. jeans, and tuck them into your boots. Wear a big sweater and cinch it with a wide belt. Put your hair in braids or a ponytail, and have a nice big, sincere smile! NO RED LIPSTICK! ;-)
Funny you should ask this. I am just about to give my knee high black leather boots to my sister. I don't really wear them because I think they're slutty..and I just don't wear heels much these days.

I do think they look good with a 3/4 length skirt though - not slutty.

I have afriend whose nickname for such boots is 'Come *&^% me boots' because that's what they seem to say. But yeah, if the rest of what you wear is modest then I think they can look classy not slutty.

As you don't like longer skirts, I'd go for boots without heels. Heels just give you backache anyway.
A pair of dark tights (not knee-highs. knee-highs, to me, give that trampy catholic school look). The tights are nice and can be a perfect fall accent.
you could wear them 3/4 lenghts that are really in fashion. they would go slightly over the top of the boots so its sexy but not slutty! problem solved!
f*** me boots look great. Don't worry cos they look sexy in a slutty kind of way.
So, let me get this straight. You hate the way they look, and don't like them. Yet, you are still determined that you need to wear them, and want to know how to look right in something that looks wrong. That's a lot of trouble to go to just to think you look good. Fact is, you will still hate the way you look in them, and you will "feel" like they don't look good on how about..DON'T WEAR THEM!
opaque tights?
I know what you mean, I have the same prob. but think its in my head coz when I've asked my friends they say it looks fine!
so are you just imagining it? If someone else was in the same outfit would you think they looked like a tart?

If the boots were patent leather and you were wearing them with fishnets and a mini I can see where you'd be going wrong but what you've described sounds fine!

Just don't wear a skirt too short and they won't look slutty. I'm too old to get away with it now but I always loved the knee high boots. They were popular when I was too young to wear them and now they've come back. They were called go go boots back then.
Heels that are too high and especially stilettos, look like hooker boots.

It matters what you wear with them too. Ultra short skirts with those type of boots really look cheap.

If you have a pear shaped body, you need to make the bottom half look slim, maybe with a black skirt, not tight or short. Wear a fashionable top that is of a light color so it looks bigger than the bottom. Don't wear tops where your breasts are hanging out, more of a trashy look than attractive. Forget the "sexy" go for attractive and tasteful.
Wear what you want and don't worry about other peoples opinions.
I always think a skirt just above the knees black tights and a fitted polo neck top looks class with knee highs. go for it and enjoy, apply natural looking make up dont slap it on and DONT wear huge hooped earings they are what makes a girl look tarty enjoy!
I would say go for a skirt below the knee but with a flared/flippy hemline so it gives some width to balance the heels and your figure.

Add some bright accessories on your top half, like a colourful hat or scarf, to draw the eye up and give you more height.

Smile and walk with confidence and you will look great.
I know what you mean, I also love my boots but feel rather self-conscious in them! The safest bet is to make sure that you have a non-clingy top - long sleeved on.

I think if you choose the right moment to wear them, with the right outfit, you can look stunning and sexy, without appearing to be too OTT. The main thing is to not regret wearing them and have the confidence built up beforehand!

If you are going to wear them for work, I personally would stick with a chunkier, rather than stilleto heel, but thats just me! Note - if you are going to wear hold-ups with them, do buy a decent pair as the other week I had some on and they started falling down in the middle of a conference. Fun. Not
You know, shoes aren't the only thing you can wear. I wear all star converse shoes all the time. And I have 4 pairs. SO when I wear some mini skirt and want to look sexy I wear the longest pink or green with dragons, when I wear a mini skirt and want to not get so much attention i wear little blac or baby blue. ANd when i want to look casual i wear jeans some t shirt or top and anything on my feet.
Sorry, but knee high boot always sound reallly kinky and very slutty. Have you seen Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman? Wear them only with jeans that cover them up. Try a shorter boot.
wear dark tights with them if you are wearing a skirt
i dont really know? maybe wear black tights with them aswell, with a short skirt, maybe tailored shorts.. then with a comfy top? but if you are having doubts maybe you should exchange them for knee highs without heels.. or you could take them into a topshop and ask for some style advice? preferably the oxford street store in london? im sure others will help you. good luck xx
Knee high boots are lovely, I wear mine with the lovely cut off trousers - culottes look great with these, they should also suit you body shape and balance you out. Try a smart pair of these they will look super elegant and stylish with your boots.
In my experience women who wear knee length leather boots are not cheap.

Get a wide knee length leather skirt, black velvet jacket and a white top. You will look fantastic.
where them with skinny could be that since your small knee high boots might not look right when you wear certain things (no offence, I only ever see girls your height wearing stilettos), wear what ever you feel comfortable in, don't listen to whatever anyone else says, it could just be that they are jealous.
