Over-the-knee boots – definitely one of those shoe-styles simply perfect to protect us from the cold during the chilly months. They are at the same time incredibly stylish and versatile. However, they are a statement-piece and therefore not everyone’s piece of cake. For this reason, we came up with the idea to show you their versatility and our 3 favorite ways to style your thigh-highs. Let us know what you think. 🙂
1. OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS: STREET-STYLE READY
You thought over-the-knee boots are only made for elegant and diva-looks? No way!! They indeed can appear sophisticated and quite in-your face, but there are sufficient tricks to downplay them.
I very much enjoy styling them in some cool & street-style ways with a tiny touch of masculinity. This is where oversized – and in this case overlong – button-down shirts get into the game.
For a similar look, grab your favorite and most comfortable pair of black skinny jeans and steal your husband´s biggest button-down. Wear it half open and opt for an XXL belt. Additionally, go either for a trench coat or a cropped denim jacket. I went for a green one to give the whole look a tiny bit of color. What do you think?
2. OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS: LETS GO FOR A DRINK
You see red over-the-knees in a shop and your brain goes: no, no, no. This is too much. And, you are right in a way. With a pair of red over-the-knees, you’re not gonna be unnoticed.
However, if you wish to make a statement and wear something feminine for the next date out, you might just choose a pair. Style them with a classic dress just long enough to almost cover their top and make sure to keep your makeup subtle. Avoid red lipsticks!
3. OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS: CASUAL LADY
Over-the-knee boots styled with a pair of blue skinny jeans is always going to be a winner-combo. It appears timeless, elegant and casual at the same time. Therefore, if you are not sure how to style your over-the-knees and feel comfortable, go for this one. It´s suitable for different occasions: business-appointments, city walks and shopping tours.
For this look, grab a classic white shirt or a turtle neck. Add your favorite black blazer to round up your look and you are ready in less than 5 minutes. How do you like it?
