Aqueduct Gotham Stakes Style; Over the Knee Boot
Step Out in Style at the Gotham Stakes in an Over the Knee Boot: The 2014 Gotham Stakes is set to take place at the Aqueduct Race Track in Queens, NY on Saturday, March 1, 2014. The race is an American Thoroughbred horse race for 3-year-olds and though it is running in early March, it still won’t quite feel like Spring. The predicted weather for Saturday, March 1st is a chilly 18 degrees, so make sure you stay warm with leather boots.
It is easy enough to throw on a dress and a coat to stay warm, but legs don’t always have to be bear in order to look fashion forward. The low ankle bootie is a style staple, but in order to stay warm and still look just as stylish try the over the knee boot to keep your legs covered up in the cold weather at Aqueduct. The updated over the knee book can be elegant and race day appropriate.
We are not talking about Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman patent leather over the knee boots here. Instead, we are talking about a more fitted soft leather knee high boot. You will want to make sure that your hem line doesn’t cover over the top of the boot but instead just leaves a little slither of skin between your boot and the bottom of your skirt or dress for just the right amount of appropriate flash.
If you want a more understated look then match your boots to your tights or leggings like Anne Hathway does in the Devil Wears Prada. Matching your tights to your boot can also be slimming and help keep the look streamlined. You might feel like the knee high boot is too daring, but when done properly they can actually have the just the right amount of subtle flash.
My favorite fashion picks for the 2014 Gotham Stakes are the Stuart Weitzman black boots or the Dolce Vitas for a flat option (both pictured below). Pair them with a dress like the little black dress from Modcloth or a skirt with a flounce hem. Both will show the boots in a sweet way with the perfect amount of skin.
Pair your look with a tall fascinator from Fashion at the Races that is more slim and tall to keep your look slim and keep the eye going vertical from the boot all the way up to your hear wear.
Check out Kim Kardashian, Miranda Kerr, and Olivia Palermo (all pictured below) for more celebrity inspiration, and remember, that the best way to wear the over the knee boot is with confidence. They are for the fun, fashionable, strong and fierce woman!
