How to style Over the Knee Boots

So….. it’s that time of year again, and over the knee boots are enjoying another autumn in the limelight.

This post will show you a couple of ways to style these babies.

OTK or ‘thigh high’ boots have been kicking around for a few autumn/winters now, but the style is still going strong. It’s a sure way to make a statement and jazz up your knitwear, as well as keeping your legs warm. Having said all of that, they need to be handled with care.

Below are some ways to wear the heeled varieties whilst keeping the look on the right side of sexy (think avoiding Vivian-esque style from Pretty Woman).

Look One – with Leather-look Jeans


This look can be worn day or night, depending on the occasison. Here I’ve paired these leather-look jeans from ZARA with the boots and a flared sleeve jumper from MARKS AND SPENCER.

Look Two – with a Chunky Knit Jumper Dress


Chunky jumper dresses are perfect for those cosy autumn days and so easy to pull together. The loose fitting style helps to keep the outfit casual enough for daytime without being too revealing. As these are heeled OTK boots a tight fitting jumper might be a bit too much for daytime, but if they were flat OTK boots it could work.

This particular jumper is a few years old, but there are millions kicking about in the shops right now.


Look Three – paired with skirt and roll neck


I love pairing thigh high boots with a short skirt and a roll neck, I think the high neck helps to keep the outfit sophisticated. The long coats make the look more elegant.


Look Four – with a Sleeveless Jacket


A long sleeveless jacket is a perfect item to match with statement boots. The sleeveless jacket seems to balance the look and is perfect with the chilly Autumn weather in the UK.
