How to Wear Over-the-Knee Boots In Fall

If you want to add some class to your outfits for fall, look no further than over-the-knee boots. Go for stilettos, lace them up or swap around skins and colours. Wear with mini skirts, flaunt with shorts, dress up a frock or ease them over jeans, but just start thinking how to work them right now. Use these tips as a starting point but keep going. Don't stop!

Over-The-Knee Boots With Dresses

Go for a total look with all-black or match pastel boots with a frock in the same shade. Lighten dark outfits with an embellished print or team your little black dress with beige or taupe over-the-knees. Wrap up with a sweater dress above your lovely leather footwear or compromise with an oversized sweater instead.

Over-The-Knee Boots With Skirts

Keep the mini theme going to show off the trend, especially if you’re not very tall – a midi or maxi will not do it for you. Curvy types could switch to a pencil with a front slit to showcase the look or make a statement by pairing leather skirt and boots.  Alternatively, a slouchy sweater or fringed vest over the skirt would rock for anyone.

Over-The-Knee Boots With Jeans

Denim with leather or suede is just the best we think and gives your over-the-knees maximum exposure. Pair baby-blue skinnies with a dark tailored knit and cream trench; conversely choose pale hues and let your footwear steal the scene. Slim frames could match dark jeans with a cinched blazer or pull on some chunky knitwear.

Over-The-Knee Boots With Shorts

Shorts and long footwear are open to so many ideas. Top distressed or ripped pairs with a black turtle neck and finish with black boots. Opt for a blouse or wear a grungy plaid shirt over a plain tee or a crop. Add a coat and move to opaque tights when the temperature drops but we know that your over-the-knee boots will keep your legs warm anyway. Bring on fall!
