If you’re after outfit inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. The schuh Blog is full of it. This week, all eyes are on the over the knee boot, or the OTK as it’s affectionately known. From platforms and high heels to flat and causal styles, there’s an OTK for every occasion. Here are some of our most coveted styles and our top 5 Dos and Don’ts for styling them.

We know we’re not all blessed with legs like supers, but trust us, it really doesn’t matter – there’s a style of OTK boot for everyone.

Do Denim

Denim goes with everything, just choose the right fit. If you are wearing jeans, make sure they are fitted so they don’t ruffle up at the top of the boots. Keep workin’ that seventies trend with an A-line mini skirt or a denim shirt dress with opaque tights for extra cosiness.

Do Statement Tights

Make tights your friend, especially statement tights. We love anything with polka dots, grids, stripes or glitter at the moment. It’s freezing out there, so who wants to go bare legged anyway! A simple dress can be lifted by adding some interesting tights.

Don’t let the boots do all the talking

Keep it chic by using the boots as an accent to the rest of your outfit – they shouldn’t overpower it. Always stay covered up on top, long sleeves and a high neck will do it. Luckily, roll necks are where it’s at this winter.

Do Leather

Pull your boots over some skinny leather (or faux leather) trousers for instant chic. Layer it up with an over-sized knit and a white shirt, you’ll be channelling Olivia P in seconds.

Don’t show too much skin

Make sure that there’s no more the 4-5 inches of skin showing between your dress and the top of your boots. This is the only way to avoid looking like Vivian Ward. Well, that and steering clear of two-tone, cut out bodycon mini dresses held together by metal hoops. Seriously Viv? Just kidding, we still love you.
