It looks like the chilly weather is here to stay for another month or two, so it’s lucky we ladies have our over the knee boots to see us through.
This versatile boot with its many styles has all occasions and dress codes covered from daytime casual to evening elegance; it’s all about how you style them. If this is your first pair and you’re not sure how to wear over the knee boots, we’ve got the key styles covered in our OTKB guide.
Here are some of our favourites, complete with style tips:
Stiletto over the knee boots are the sexiest of all the OTKB styles, giving you that killer heel vibe without baring your legs to the cold. Whether you go for the pointed toe or the rounded toe, the stiletto heeled boot is sassy and sophisticated when paired with the right outfits.
Best for: Date nights and girls’ nights out
Wear with: Mid-length skirts and dresses or skinny jeans create a classy evening look
Avoid: Mini skirts and dresses, this can look a little trashy if you’re not careful. Also avoid leather pants, as this can take you in an unintended ‘Catwoman’ direction.
Fancy a pair? Try the Daniel Romance black over the knee stretch boot. Those killer stiletto heels will add a feminine touch to all your evening outfits, and the classic black colour will go with practically anything.
The casual cousin of the stiletto OTKB, the chunky heel style is perfect for day-to-day wear, or for toning down dressy outfits. Chunky heel over the knee boots with rounded toes are generally more comfortable for all-day wear, and they help create the perfect mix of glam and casual for those days when you want to look your best.
Best for: Shopping trips, lunch dates
Wear with: These look great with skinny blue jeans and casual knits, but work just as beautifully with casual day dresses, party dresses and mini skirts.
Avoid: Nothing. Pretty much anything goes
Get the casual glam look with this pair of Daniel Nichelle black velvet over the knee boots. The low chunky heel is great for all-day wear and the velvet material adds an extra touch of glamour to your daytime ensembles. Or pair up with your favourite LBD for an equally stunning smart casual evening look.
Over the knee wedge boots are the perfect halfway point between party-ready stilettos and casual chunkies. This means you can style them however you like, wherever you like. The wedge heel will take you from daytime through to evening without so much as breaking stride, so that’s all your after-work drinks sorted.
Best for: Anywhere and everywhere, even the office
Wear with: Dresses, skirts, jeans, leather pants…the anything theme continues
Avoid: Yep, you guessed it, it’s all good. Though it’s best to steer clear of shorts.
Looking for a new pair of wedges to see you through the rest of the winter? You can’t go wrong with this pair of stunning Daniel Diggity suede wedge OTKBs in classic black. The concealed wedge gives you all the extra height you want without looking too dressed-up, and the classy black suede keeps the glam levels up. That grippy rubber sole is also super comfortable, so you can wear these all day and all night with no problem.
If you want all the comfort but don’t want to compromise on feminine style, a solid pair of over the knee flat boots is the way to go. Going flat out with your over the knees is easy, and they can work for both formal and casual occasions depending on the materials you go for. Colours also make a big difference here, with greys and blues providing a more jazzed-up look even without a heel.
Best for: Shopping trips and the office
Wear with: Skinny jeans and chunky knits for casual day looks, or short skirts and sparkly tops for a chic evening look.
Avoid: It’s all good, but aim for suede materials for casual daytime looks and leave leather for the office or evening outfits.
Et voila, here’s the perfect pair of flat over the knee boots to get you started on the casual end of this look. These stunning Stuart Weitzman Lowland over the knee boots in grey suede strike the perfect balance between casual comfort and elegant feminine style. The charcoal grey makes these the ideal casual match for your favourite skinny jeans any day of the week.
