Knowing what to wear to add just the right amount of allure to an outfit can be challenging over 40. No woman I know wants to overdo it!
Plunging necklines that dive desperately deep or thigh-high skirts that flash a load of the leg aren’t the answer. However, a pair of tall black boots can make you look sexy in a tasteful, mature way.
Here are some of the latest tall black boots for women that make a sexy statement this fall.
1. Textured Tall Black Boots
This must be the year of the tall, black croc boot because the stores are filled with them. This one is the Saraalan Knee High Boot by Vince Camuto.
It caught my eye because of the patchwork fabric blocking that incorporates strips of faux croc leather, black suede, and matte leather. Notice the toe? It’s almond-shaped, which is nice because it makes your legs look and sexy, but it’s not so pointy that it pinches your toes.
I think it looks very sophisticated with this pretty floral wrap dress. The texture adds a lot of interest, and of course, I love the look of a long black cardigan over a dress with high black boots. So sophisticated.
2. Black Suede Over the Knee Boot
Every year I keep thinking that edgy over the knee booties will fade out because they have been popular for a long time, but they keep on going. They’re easy to wear because they are nice and low, and they pull on like a glove, so they give you a seriously sleek look.
I think the best way to wear them is with leggings. Create a head to toe black base by adding a black turtleneck. Then throw on a fabulous poncho, and you have a very slimming, chic look.
What I like about this elegant pair is the chunky sculpted heel. It’s got a futuristic feel. The super pointy toe makes it very dressy.
Over the knee, boots like this can also work with dresses. Usually, an above the knee knit or sweaterdress works best. Avoid shiny or patent leather over the knee boots as they are too, Pretty Woman.
3. Tall Black Slouchy Boot
Here’s another pair of croc tall black boots, but these have some sexy slouch. Slouchy boots have a relaxed, elegant vibe and look great with jeans, stretchy top, and menswear jacket. This pair is described as having Parisian elegance with a Texan edge so good for city and country folks!
I like the 2.5-inch skinny heel. It’s elegant and feminine, but I’m sure it is comfy too. I can’t wear those high heel boots much anymore, at least not for any good amount of time. They bug my feet. These would be perfect.
4. Tall Black Riding Boot
Equestrian style boots seem to all look alike, so I was pleasantly pleased to come across this bold new pair. This is the Prolanda by Vince Camuto, a simple but dramatic boot that commands attention.
The military chain-link detail at the ankle is striking. Look how it dresses up a straightforward outfit and gives it a powerful presence. This is a great boot for this outfit but imagine how perfect it would look with leggings or skinny jeans tucked into it too!
The tall black boots were not just made for walking. They’re also made to turn heads! Here are some other “WOW” tall black boots you don’t want to miss seeing.
