From runways to paparazzi shots, over-the-knee boots are a fashion favorite this winter. And while we admit they can be a bit tricky, the right outfit can make them work on just about anybody, we swear. With perfectly proportioned hemlines and clever layering, you can own this look and love it. Check out these seven ways to rock the boots of the season.
1. To the Office
Thought OTK boots weren’t appropriate for work? Think again. When worn with a hemline longer than the boot’s edge, you lose the sexiness while keeping the style.
2. Model Off Duty
A Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid approved outfit—all the “it” girls are rocking this look. Paired with Zara boots, and oversized shirtdress gives off an effortlessly fashionable vibe. Plus, it’s a universally flattering silhouette.
3. Keep it Casual
Amp up your weekend jeans-and-sweater uniform with a pair of suede Aldo thigh highs. Opt for skintight jeans in a dark wash to keep the look flattering.
4. Go Short
Thigh highs are a natural fit for shorter hemlines. But a mini skirt isn’t always the most appropriate daytime look. Layer denim cutoffs with opaque tights for a stylish option that can go from day to night.
5. Good Lookin’
Want to wear a dress, but it’s too cold to go bare legged? Slip on some skin-toned suede boots as a chic alternative.
6. Basic Instinct
Everyone loves the classic blue jeans and white tee combo, but sometimes it needs a twist. Equestrian-inspired Tommy Hilfiger riding boots are a comfortable and cool everyday accessory.
7. Make it a Mini
The mini skirt and thigh high combo is a fashion favorite at the moment. But that doesn’t mean it’s not accessible. This Zara skirt and a cozy turtleneck look great on even the least adventurous dressers.
