How to Wear Over-The-Knee Boots

How to Wear: Over-The-Knee Boots

Bohemian Rhapsody

“When I think of bohemia, I envisage horseback riding in Mongolia, so I love how comfortable this look is. I’d wear this to drinks at happy hour, a house party or just running errands around town. With fringe boots, balance is key. Avoid other fringe items in the same outfit – just keep it simple. These boots have their own personality so let them make the statement.”

Day to Night

“These Stuart Weitzman boots themselves were really the inspiration for the look. It’s all about dressing up and down for me and this is something I would wear to an outdoor brunch on a chilly day and then out for dinner. As the focus will be all on the legs, it’s best to wear something more conservative on top. Stick to solid colours to keep it neutral.”

Swinging Sixties

“I love the Sixties look as it’s fun and colourful. The printed dress and pointed boots make the look more feminine. I would wear this to meetings or when I want to stand out, but choose any dress that suits your body type – be experimental and have fun with this outfit. When wearing boots, proportion is everything. These boots are suitable for anyone as long as you keep in mind the proportions of your outfit.”

Winter Wonderland

“I was inspired by a Nordic Queen editorial I saw in Vogue Japan for this look. Full of luxurious beige and grey tones, it’s perfect for penguin watching in Antarctica or shooting street style with icebergs, of course! Realistically, though, this is the ultimate look for a long-haul flight. Nothing beats having your own scarf or cape that doubles as a cosy blanket. Over-the-knee boots can be hard to put on or take off but I never have problems with these as they’re flat, stylish and warm so you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. My top tip for pulling off this look? Go big or go home.”

Borrowed From The Boys

“I love the play between feminine and masculine in fashion. A good androgynous outfit can sometimes be sexier than wearing any dress and a slightly oversized blazer always does the trick, but the boots in this case really makes the look. This is a great style for a gallery or restaurant opening.”
