As we mentioned in our fall trend report, over-the-knee boots don't have to be trashy. They can, in fact, be classy as well as functional — even for busy moms.

Whether you're going to the park or chaperoning a field trip, flat boots with skinny jeans or leggings and a trendy moto jacket will have you looking stylish with little effort. For date night, a pair of high-heeled, over-the-knee boots will wow your man. Just let those boots be the stars of your sexy ensemble, and keep the rest of your outfit simple.

At the office, try a wedge style; it's dressier than a flat but more casual than a heel. Keep your outfit professional by wearing your boots with skinny pants, a button-down and a blazer. A skirt with very tall boots may come off as a bit too risqué for work.
