How to Wear Over the Knee Boots

September 21, 2018

My absolute favorite purchase as of late are these suede over the knee boots! They are adorable and actually really comfortable. And bonus, they keep you legs warm! You can style over-the-knee boots to look casual or dressy, and you can style them with accessories to complete your outfit.

I have had a lot of people ask me how to wear over the knee boots, so today I am sharing a 5 ways you can wear the style!


Knee-high and over-the-knee boots are a great footwear style to help transition your mini dresses and skirts into the colder seasons. They are actually one of my favorite pairs of shoes for fall and winter. And while they can be intimidating to wear, they are very versatile, slimming and usually really comfortable.

Tips for Wearing Over The Knee Boots


1 // Pair with Skirt

A short hemline puts the spotlight on the shoes. Style them with a midi skirt that falls below the top of the boot, or allow a sliver of skin (or tights, come winter frost!) to peek out between your boot and a short hemline.

2 // Style with Skinny Jeans

Pull them on over skinny jeans or leggings, and a cozy oversized turtleneck sweater. My personal favorite!

3 // Wear with a Long Skirt

Want to get away with wearing them to the office? Just make sure to pair your boots with a skirt that’s long enough to cover any leg (at least to the knee) and add a crisp button-down for extra polish.

4 // Compliment a Sweater Dress with OTK

A long-sleeved sweater dress can look a little odd when it’s styled with the wrong shoes; a pair of thigh-high boots offers a stylish, suitable option.

5 // Pair with a Poncho

Ponchos come a close second to sweater dresses for me when it’s time to get dressed and I need something in a pinch!  Put on a t-shirt, jeans, and throw on a poncho with over-the-knee boots for an outfit that looks effortlessly glamorous!  The over-the-knee silhouette pairs perfectly for creating an elongated leg line that perfectly offsets the volume of the poncho.
