Striking and mysterious at the same time, they draw the attention of every fashion-conscious woman.
And then the doubts arise: “Is this even a shoe for me? Can you even wear the boots in everyday life? I don’t even know what to wear with it!”
Such thoughts deter some women from buying this great shoe model.
But be brave, the boot with the extremely high shaft is back on the rise! One would think that the shoe is more difficult to combine than other types of boots. But that’s not necessarily the case: you just have to know how! Because an overknee suits all types of women, as long as it is combined correctly. So that you always cut a good figure, we dedicate the Overknee Boots hence a separate post.
The right combination of overknees makes it possible!
The chic boots are currently so popular that you not only want to wear them for a sexy look, but also in everyday life. But how exactly do you do it without being too provocative? In the following we would like to clarify these and other questions for you.
So you always look top styled
In any case, an over-the-knee boot will make you stand out immediately. But not only those around you will be impressed by the high boots, but you too. Because once you’ve found the courage to wear this shoe in public, you’ll be rewarded with a lot of confidence. Envious and appreciative looks are certain and you feel as if nothing and nobody can stop you!
In addition, the shoe draws the focus to your legs. For long, slender legs, they are the perfect highlight of your outfit. But there is also a solution for women with short legs: go for a simple version with higher heels.
The shoe design makes a difference
Otherwise it depends on the boot itself. Flat styles are generally a little easier to combine because they don’t radiate as much sex appeal as heeled overknees.
And the material from which the boot is made also makes the difference. Suede leather gives the boot a slightly more rustic touch and goes with many items of clothing. This Phillip Hardy black over the knee boot from our shop is a good example. But this also applies to smooth leather, which looks a bit cooler, but it also gives the boot a touch more elegance. Have a look at our overknee models from Maripé.
Since an over-the-knee boot is eye-catching enough in itself, subtle colors and few frills are required. In this case, less is more. Shades of brown and gray are best suited for an elegant look, alongside the ever-popular shade of black.
The occasion is crucial
But the occasion for which you can put on the chic shoes is also decisive for a successful appearance. A fashionable and creative environment is best suited to performing and presenting your overknees. For example, a flat pair of overknees for a casual shopping spree in the city center or for meeting up with your girlfriends.
On the other hand, on formal occasions such as job interviews, funerals, office work, etc., you should not show up in over-the-knee boots and wear less conspicuous footwear.
These are the best possible combinations for overknees
First of all, here is another formula that you can use to find the right combination for your successful outfit: The shorter your trousers are below, the simpler, more decent and longer your upper half should be dressed.
And we’re going to add a third formula: the darker you choose the clothes to go with the boots, the classier and more elegant your look will appear.
If you opt for long trousers, it is best to combine the knee-high boots with leggings and skinny jeans. Add a casual XXL sweater and your outfit is complete! If you like it a little more colourful, you can combine colored tops to balance things out: below an eye-catcher in the form of overknees and above an eye-catcher in the form of a splash of colour. If it’s a bit colder, long cardigans or ponchos over the top and coats for outdoors are ideal for high boots.
If you prefer a skirt, opt for longer skirts that are flared and reach mid-thigh or even to the knee.
But you can also ideally combine the overknee boots with dresses. A shirt, knitted or turtleneck dress that caresses your body is the perfect companion here.
Colors such as wool white, gray and black always look classy and complement your elegant appearance perfectly. Make sure that the boots remain the highlight and avoid excessive jewelry. A subtle bangle and a similar chain round off the overall picture and you will become an absolute eye-catcher!
