Just in case you lived under a rock for the last few months – thigh high boots are BIG this fall. Designers like Stella McCartney, Rodarte, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Chloé and many, many more have included over-the-knee footwear into their Fall 2009 collection. Celebrities such as Victoria Beckham or Shakira are already incorporating this trend into their wardrobes and I’ve seen a few editorials showing this controversial footwear as well. They may not be to everyone’s taste, but whether you like it or not: this is not the last time you’ll see thigh-high boots this fall.

Jeffrey Campbell “Issue” Over-the-knee Boots

Leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to adapt this new, daring trend first and make it available to women without a $2.000 shoe budget. His Stella McCartney inspired perforated over-the-knee boots may not fully live up to the real deal, but they’re still a fabulous alternative for a fraction of the original’s price. If only they would’ve kept the metal cap platform, but at that price I guess you just can’t have it all. Also available in taupe/grey leather and black suede.

I know, I know. It’s spring. You’re probably totally jonesing to trade your boots in for sandals. But maybe not just yet. ‘Cause we have two boot deals that are almost impossible to resist. First up: the I98020 Thigh-High Buckled Boot by Giuseppe Zanotti. You know the thigh-high boot trend is going to be just as hot this fall, don’t you? So why not get a sexy flat pair to go with your shorts/leggings/skinnies/minis for fall/winter 2010? These Zanottis were originally $1.090, and they’re now half-price. Sure, it’s a little steep, but I’ll bet you’d have these babies for the rest of your life—that’s a cost-per-wear figure that justifies the investment.

Topshop “DOLLIE” Over Knee Buckle Boots

UPDATE (09/13/2010): Just in time for Fall Topshop brings us another Zanotti OTK boots alternative in a rich black suede. Love these! They’re also available in taupe suede if you prefer a lighter color for your boots.

Jeffrey Campbell “Lara” Above the Knee Boots

Maybe even the cost-per-wear of the Zanotti boot isn’t enough to legitimize a half a grand on a boot. Fair enough. Snap up the lovely “Lara” Above the Knee Boot by Jeffrey Campbell instead. Mmmm, they’re tall. They’re strapped and buckled. In sum, they. Are. HOT! I just cannot fathom wearing these and not being the envy of all the women1and men—in a 50-yard radius. And $185, for a thigh-high, 100% leather boot? I’m sold.

Alexis Bledel is one of my secret style crushes. She is not a red carpet regular, but whenever I see pictures of her attending an event she’s always looking radiant and absolutely flawless. A few days ago Alexis came out to an ELLE Fashion Event looking beautiful as always in a crisp white sleeveless blouse and a grey wool skirt which she set off with an oversized leopard clutch and hot red satin platforms by Charlotte Olympia. This look perfectly shows how important accessories are. If you’re wearing basic pieces make sure to add a few bold accessories to make your outfit pop.
