Walk This Way: 3 Ways to Wear Over-the-Knee Boots


On the catwalk, over-the-knee boots always seem to look effortlessly sexy and never overdone, but in real life these sky-high numbers tend to be harder to pull off. Whether you're planning on pairing yours with a micro mini, a sweater dress or some of your favorite skinny jeans, you'll want to assure you're making the right statement. After all, what woman in their right mind wants to invite a Pretty Woman reference?! Safe to say the answer here is none.
With that in mind, keep things classy with these three styling tips.


Opt for a chunky sweater or flowy dress that hits right at mid thigh and gives a little breathing room between your boots and your hemline. The dress should hug your curves without looking like its painted on. Remember, whether you pull on a pair of high heels or keep things short and sweet, there should only be a small glimmer of your legs shown for a day appropriate look.

Get Sleeky

Choose a pair of boots that hit just above the knee to create a long, lean leg line with a pair of your most loved dark denim in a similar hue. As for the top, stick to a long sweater, or blouse that hit below the hip.

To complete your look reach for a cropped blazer, cardigan or moto jacket for a winning street style ensemble.

Skirt This Way

For a night on the town, reach for your favorite miniskirt or LBD and keep things classy by choosing a pair of boots that are either real leather or suede. For a less provocative daytime look, try pairing a pencil skirt that hits just below the knee with your over-the-knee boot for an appropriate and sophisticated spin on an otherwise overtly sexy look.

Feeling daring? Channel your inner fashionista with an edgy yet feminine outfit by rocking a timeless pair of over-the-knee boots with an icy white coat and leather mini skirt.

Follow these styling tips and you'll be turning heads and hearing, "Hey pretty baby with the high heels on..." in no time!
