Over-the-knee boots are the latest fashion trend. Although they were initially considered extravagant and were approached with quite a distance, millions of women quickly fell in love with them. If you’re still not sure if over-the-knee boots will suit you, check out our tips!
Over-the-knee boots need no introduction. Most of us reach for them every winter, because they are extremely comfortable and warm. However, for a few seasons now, over-the-knee boots have become more and more popular. They are made for cold feet, because they perfectly protect against cold and moisture. If we wear them with heels, they optically slenderize and elongate our legs. There is no doubt that over-the-knee boots are eye-catching, so wearing them you will surely draw attention to yourself.
Over-the-knee boots are certainly suitable for people of short and medium height. Such boots will make legs optically longer. If we want to add even more inches, we can reach for over-the-knee boots with heels.
People with strong or wide calves will also be satisfied with over-the-knee boots. Long upper will make sure the problematic parts of legs are cleverly covered. The cut which widens towards the knees will be the best in this role. In it the calf will not be tight and you will not see how thick it really is.
Owners of slim legs will also look great in knee-high boots. In their case, cut with a narrow upper will be the best. If you are afraid that the boots will slip while wearing, choose a model with a tie at the top, which will support the upper.
If you don’t know how to start your adventure with over-the-knee boots and what styling to wear them with, start by pairing them with a dress. The most important thing is that the dress should be short enough for you to show off the whole upper. There should be a visible gap between the end of the upper and the dress material, which will make the style look light and airy. If you want to look classy, choose boots made of suede and the dress sewn from a plain, solid material. It looks good when the color of dress contrasts strongly with color of shoes, so we suggest wearing red, green or blue dress with black boots.
Wearing over-the-knee boots with short skirt will also make a great fashion statement. The cut of the skirt is flexible – it can be close to the body or oversize. The most important is that, as in case of dress, it should fully expose the whole length of boots. Over-the-knee boots look great with leather skirts, pleated skirts or simple monochrome cuts.
Nothing prevents you from wearing over-the-knee boots with long pants as well. They can be classic blue jeans or pants made of other material, such as eco-leather. If you want to look good with such a combination, make sure the pants fit your figure and are wrinkle-free. You can wear an oversize sweatshirt or sweater with this style.
