Otherwise known as over-the-knee boots or cuissardes, these are long boots that partly or fully cover the knees. Back in the 15th century, they served as riding boots for men but later evolved to be women’s footwear around the 1960s.

Wear it Over Your Jeans

You can never go wrong with a pair of jeans, not even when you rock it with a pair of boots that rise to your thighs. So, give this classic denim look a shot and combine it with a nice top from tees to sweaters, shirts, and what have you.

Create a Monochrome Look

If you’re a lover of minimalist fashion, this one is for you. A monochromatic ensemble works with one color shade. It’s perfect if you don’t wanna get worked up about what colors to match with your boots. For instance, you can create an all-black or white ensemble or take things up a notch by wearing a monochromatic bold look such as all-red, all-pink, blue, etc.

In Lieu of Pants

If you shop right, your over-the-knee boots will fit just right. This makes them such a fashion standout that can pass for pants when paired with long tops, blazers, jackets, or short dresses. In other words, with their coverage, they make pants needless. 

Some More Layering

Go for a Bold Look

Thigh-highs are dramatic shoes, so why not make a statement with them? You can either go bold with all the components of your outfit or opt for neutral-colored clothes so your boots add a pop of color, thus remaining the focus.

Thigh-High Boots with an Oversized Hoodie

This is one streetwear style you don’t wanna miss out on. Oversized hoodies when paired with OTK boots create an eye-candy look that oozes urban sophistication.

A Pair of Leggings/Pantyhose Underneath

Leggings and pantyhose are another stylish way to stay warm when wearing something skimpy. They also add more definitions to your look. But this doesn’t mean you can’t try out some double authentication by pairing them with full-coverage shoes like over-the-knee boots.

Midi Skirt/Dress

For more effects when trying out this option, go for the ones with slits so you give a sneak peek of your thighs while strutting.

Mini Skirts/Dresses with Thigh-High Boots

What better way to rock these shoes than with a skirt or dress that flaunts your thighs? But guess what, with OTK boots, you need not worry about showing too much skin because more than half of your legs would be hidden in ‘em boots, giving you a cozy fit.

Shorts with Thigh-High Boots

Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without shorts. And guess what? They complete these boots too. But if you’ll be donning shorts, do so during summer or when the weather isn’t cold. Or better still, add a long coat or any outerwear to your ensemble so you don’t sacrifice warmth while exuding style.

In conclusion, over-the-knee boots are versatile footwear. They suit just any outfit and occasion. So, don’t think they’re only for a fun time at the club or fashion shows. Feel free to don them to the office so long as the climate supports it, and be ready to create dashing outfits that take your fashion game to an iconic level.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
