As we find ourselves in the midst of July, over the knee boots are making their comeback as one of the warmest shoes of the season. While there is so much variety such as slouchy boots, zipped boots and so on, it can often be difficult to dress these boots up for a certain occasion. Here are just some ways to style over the knee boots to feel warm and comfy just in time for winter.


Channel your inner Nina Proudman by wearing your over the knee boots with jeans and a peasant inspired top for instant boho-chic. This simple day-to-day look requires minimal effort, and will keep your toes warm throughout the winter chill. Better yet, top off with a comfy sweater and shoulder bag to transform this into a night look.


Over the knee boots look amazing when paired with a loose dress, but it seems as though the winter weather doesn’t always allow for this idea to become reality. Instead, rug up by wearing leggings or thick hosiery underneath to keep warm, and for a great contrast. Finish off the look with a leather jacket and fun scarf.


This combination is surely a match made in heaven, but try and keep the dress less form fitting to balance out the boots. Long sleeve dresses are fantastic for winter since they keep out the chill and can be layered if you do choose to switch up the outfit at the last minute.


If you’re planning an night out, choose a skirt and pair this with a warm coat which is sure to bring the look together. If you’re in doubt about colour, stick to all black over the knee boots as this is easier to style and will help to create more outfits for you than brown or colourful boots.


  • Flat over the knee boots are great to invest in since the look will never go out of style, and can be worn a number of times. They are versatile shoes and look great paired with anything in a winter wardrobe.
  • If you’re feeling doubtful about wearing over the knee boots, pair them with an all black outfit. You can’t really go wrong with black jeans and t-shirt, instead try to keep your accessories lively and colourful.
  • This look is all about portion control. Try and style the upper half of the look in flawy dresses, skirts but with a fitted coat. Since the boots are so form fitted, always try and keep the upper half looking even with the bottom.
  • Keep costume jewellery to a minimum. These boots already act as a relatively big statement piece, so let them do the talking.
