What to Look for in Over the Knee Boots

Styling over the knee boots can be a tricky, tricky thing.

If you want to wear this domineering boot without looking like {insert your own reference of someone overly sexy here} then read on!

There are many styles of over the knee or thigh high boots available and in a variety of materials. When looking to add this closet staple to your winter outfits think classy and chic. Go black or brown.

Stick with a neutral so it won’t look cheap. Talking about money, these style of boots tend to be more pricey so select a color you will wear over and over again.

Go lux. Don’t buy patent or anything too shiny, instead go with a rich leather or soft suede.

In addition to the material and color also take into consideration the heel. Do you want a flat boot or one with a high or small heel? If you’re looking for a sensible size heel, I would suggest a mid height heel without a platform. Similar style to the ones I’m wearing.

How to Wear Over the Knee Boots

We’re going to focus on how to wear over the knee boots in a semi-casual way.

When wearing over the knee boots, one option could be to wear them with super skinny jeans.

There are two reasons why. First, you don’t want the jeans to bunch up inside of the boots, which would be very uncomfortable. Second, with so much boot going on you wouldn’t want to wear loose jeans as it would just be so overwhelming for the bottom half of your outfit, so keep it form fitting and sleek.

If you’re looking your boots to be the primary focus of your outfit keep everything else in your look; accessories and makeup, to a minimum. You don’t want too many things competing for attention.

This outfit has a rocker, badass feel to it. I particularly like it because this is generally not my style. I usually add something feminine into the mix but not this time. Completely unintentional but it’s another black and white winter outfit to add to my looks page.

    I have a pair of boots that were given to me by my mother in law. They are beige in color which is great and they do have a heal but they have white fur at the top. I’ve wore them once with a pair of dark jeans a white sweater and my beige cardigan which is at my waist. Curious at what else I can wear with it considering they are beautiful suede like boots with white fur and I live in Florida which the temperature never drops below 70. I do have leggings for the 70 temps and I own 3 pairs of jeans white, light blue, and dark blue. any advice would help.
    Thank you
