This week I had an email from a reader asking; “One of the trends this season are for over the knee boots. I’ve been searching ….. the cheap ones are really cheap looking, the expensive ones will blow the budget so middling price would be within everyone’s budget. And, how to wear them please. Or some of us (like me) will be living in skinny jeans or the dreaded leggings.”
So rather than answer her individually I thought it might be something others would like to know.
Firstly how to wear them, I turned to Pinterest to get some examples to show you, carefully choosing outfits that I think you can adapt to suit you. The mini skirt/bare leg combo is great if you are young and full of confidence but for the rest of us here are some more wearable options:
A pair of skinny jeans look so much more stylish with accessories and a sweater in toning colours to the boots. If you choose leather (or faux leather) leggings wear suede boots to give you a mix of textures.
I love this 3rd look with a cosy wrap and skinny dark wash jeans – note the colour is picked out in the bag pom pom too. Finally wear over the knee boots with that other seasonal must have, the knit dress. Make it more wearable with opaque tights.
And here are my 12 top picks of over the knee boots in a range of budgets – click on the icons to shop the boots:
It’s a great idea to build a mini capsule wardrobe of accessories that work together – here is one I created around this wrap I bought last autumn, now all I need is a navy bag…
Will you be adding a pair of over the knee boots to your wardrobe this season?
