How To Wear Over-The-Knee Boots 3 Ways

Love the look of them but worry you’ll end up looking like Julia Roberts à la Pretty Woman? Fear not, as we’re here to save the day.

There’s no denying that over-the-knee boots have been pretty major over the last few years, with everyone from the Queen Bey to Kim K rocking the silhouette. And whilst those two can do it with ease, we mere mortals sometimes need a little extra encouragement to swap over our safe black ankle boots for a not-so-safe pair of thigh-grazers. But before you start getting anxious at the thought, allow us to step in with 3 easy-to-pull-off styling suggestions for how to wear over-the-knee boots:

The Grey Over-The-Knee Boot

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kourtney Kardashian and Olivia Palermo are all fans of the grey over-the-knee boot and it’s easy to see why. Its neutral colourway is a winner for those who want to take the more subtle approach to the silhouette, whilst its lighter shade will also create an understated contrast against denims. We’ve paired the schuh Sprinter boots with denim cutoffs, a western-inspired belt, simple black top and a khaki jacket with badge detail.

The Equestrian-Inspired Over-The-Knee Boot

The equestrian boot is one of those styles that never go out of fashion and this season it’s been taken to new heights. Ideal for autumnal walks and chilled weekends, the schuh Hubbub boot is versatility at its best. We’ve matched them with a black long-sleeved bodycon jersey dress and layered up with a knitted khaki jumper and wool coat. This layering method is also perfect for the transitional period between late summer to autumn/winter when it’s hard to judge what temperature to dress for.

The Lace-Up Over-The-Knee Boot

One of the trickier ones to pull-off, the oversized lace-up over-the-knee boot is definitely worth the extra effort for the amazing outcome. Emily Ratajkowski and Kim K are amongst the fans of this style, ramping up the glam factor with shorter hemlines and leather. We’ve styled the schuh Beesley boot with a burgundy leather skirt, white chiffon top and black leather jacket for instant rock chic appeal.
