The first 2009 fall fashion trend to skip is the over-the-knee boot. Although this style may be trendy for fall and winter, it's a difficult look for most women to wear successfully, and thigh-high boots are more likely to end up as a fad than a trend anyway.
If you like the look of boots, boots that come to just below the knee are a better investment of your fashion dollar. They can be worn tucked inside skinny jeans or with a skirt. When wearing boots with a skirt or dress, make sure that the hem comes to the top of the boots for a longer, leaner look.
