Thigh high boots are the absolute hotness. What makes them classy or trashy is the quality of the boot, along with what you are wearing with the boot. Outside of the bedroom, do not wear shiny pleather boots. Save the patents and pleathers for the bedroom. Go for a more matte finish, and make sure you layer your clothing. Meaning, it's good to wear a pair of leggings with a nice tunic, belt, jacket, scarf and or necklace. That gives you a layer of sophistication that does not scream hooker.
I do not recommend mini skirts unless you have leggings on underneath and have layered your top (see note above).
Doing this creates a harmony throughout your ensemble and makes you look chic instead of trashy.
i have boots but not thigh-high ones...there was this girl at the bank who wore them to work...she was always getting into trouble with our manager (she managed us tellers) for it, but that girl always had long lines, usually attractive men.
but so did i, and i am a very conservative dresser, so there ;p
p.s. i do wear thigh high socks with shorter skirts occasionally. i think it is more tasteful than thigh-high boots and just as sexy. they reveal just a teensy bit of thigh. i'm a big believer in understated.
Not to be too offensivly biased on this subject but if you think boots ( of any kind ) are sexy, hot, cute, fashionable then you should get your head out of your butt and relize that 99% of boots are repulsive. Boots are not attractive. Boots were made for cowboys and cowgirls. they should be the only people to wear boots, and thats for work. Those old fashioned cowgirl puposeful boots look nothing like the funky shiny black boots of today or those outrageous looking suede covered fluffy moon boots.
There should be a law that restrict women from wearing such ridiculous things.
So unless its halloween and your making fun of those boots, or your shoveling snow, or cow/horse poop you should not wear boots. Specially not out on a fri/sat night!
Are you serious? I am hoping that you are joking, but if not let me help you a little bit. Military members wear combat boots, hikers wear hiking boots, boxers and wrestlers wear boots, cowboys.girls wear boots, and some VERY SEXY women wear boots. If you don't like boots, then that is your opinion and right to have it. Not to tell people to get their heads out of their butts.
Yes Im serious but with a funny side on this subject.
Your exmaples are perfect! hikers wear hiking boots, why? to protect their feet while climbing. They are very practicle.
you ever try shoveling snow in your pennyloafers? I hope not, becasue they would get soaked. Cure? snow boots!
Steel toe boots. You think they put metal in my shoe for fashion? think again, its for safety.
Boxers and wrestlers wear boots for not rolling/breaking their ankels as it give them extra support.
Cowboys and cowgirls wear them for thier occupation as it can get very dirty and you would not want to be wearing tennis shoes while doing thier jobs.
Combatants wear boots again for protecting their feet as they also could have a very dirty and dangerous terrain to cover. you cant be complaining that theres a rock in your chuck taylor while running in the military. lol.
Boots are meant for purpose,not fashion, thats my whole point. this is all fun and debate. my opinions are mine, and no one has to share them or agree with them.
