When shopping for your perfect winter shoe, an over-the-knee or thigh-high boot might not be your first pick. We know, it can be hard to style and hard to wear, depending on your leg shape. So, we've created some great tips to help you shop for the best thigh-high boots for your body type. Don't be scared of them—this sartorial risk can look way better than expected—just make sure the fit around your whole leg works for you, not just your thigh. Pay attention to color and fabric, too, because those factors can depend on how much the boot will cling to your leg, versus laying away from your leg. Bring out your inner Pretty Woman and try on that pair of thigh-high boots you've been questioning—your life could change because of it.
