How to Combine Over the Knee Boots?

In my last article, I shared with you ANKLE BOOTS I shared some styling tips about you. In this article, I wanted to write some style suggestions about over the knee boots, which have been incredibly fashionable in recent years. While they keep warm in the cold winter months, they are also very stylish and versatile. These pieces can be worn in various environments with different outfits but to combine them correctly, some important details should not be overlooked.

First, let’s start with comfort and health. Wear sock or, better still, a sock that ends below the knee, inside your over the knee boots. Since your feet will stay in them for a long time, the socks prevent odor and protect your feet from the cold. In any case, you can wear your stockings under them.

What Should Be Considered When Buying Over The Knee Boots?

The mold is very important. With the exception of some loose or gathered designs, over the knee boots are designed to sit on the calves. But they are never so tight that they are uncomfortable or cause your legs to swell. In particular, the zipper should easily go all the way to the top.

These boots immediately draw attention to the foot and leg with their assertive appearance. For this reason, I advise women with thick calves to stay away from this model or to choose models that stand upright instead of models that stick to the calf.

Are Knee-High Boots the Right Choice at Work?

I strongly discourage over the knee boots at work. Especially high heels do not go well with business attire, as they look too elegant and feminine. If you really want, you can wear a low-heeled one under a simple classic dress, but it is better to wear this style with knee-high boots.

Who doesn’t love the comfort and practicality of a flat sole? Fortunately for today’s busy women, over the knee boots are as fashionable in flats as they are in heels. These models are certainly more comfortable than heels, but they still affect the mood of the outfit. Styles with very low heels and ending just above the knee add an equestrian feel to outfits, while over-the-knee boots with higher and slightly lower heels give a 70s feel.

Over-the-knee flat boots are a great choice for those with long legs. But if you’re petite, choose a pair that ends just above the knee to maximize your calf length and make you look taller. If you are already tall, all the models are ok for you. Choose shorter lengths for more casual and sporty elegance or longer styles for a more glamorous look.

Lace-up Over the Knee Boots

Let’s say you are very assertive and want to attract attention, then lace-up over the knee boots are for you. Pair this model, which is especially suitable for evening wear, with a simple dress. For example, you can achieve a perfect harmony with a black tight-fitting dress and appropriate accessories.

On the other hand, models with closed toes and tight laces will have less impact than those that show more skin. As for comfort, over-the-knee boots that end at mid-thigh are more attractive, but they are much more difficult to walk in because there is little room for the knee to bend. Therefore, if you want both aesthetics and comfort, my suggestion is to choose a model that ends at the knee.

Color and Material Selection

Black is a great alternative as it looks slim and can be paired with everything. Leather is, of course, our favorite material for durability. However, the range of colors in suede leather over the knee boots is quite wide. For a modern and stylish look, suede over the knee boots in tan, beige and especially gray are the perfect choice. Because they add warmth and softness to your outfit.

You can either match these colors with an outfit in the same color or use them in a different combination with shades that match these colors. If you prefer the same color outfit then you need to choose your outfits one or two shades lighter/darker so that you don’t look drowned in one tone.
