7 Ways to Wear Over the Knee Boots

One essential ingredient to any outfit with over-the-knee boots? Confidence! This is definitely more of a statement style, but these boots can really elevate even the most simple outfits and that’s one reason they really have had staying power in my closet. I got mine a little over a year ago and have worn them even more than I imagined—they’ve even been part of my NYE outfit 2 years in a row! But I don’t only wear them to dress up—they definitely work for everyday looks, too.

In all of these looks I’m wearing my Julia Earrings in Arches, which will be available in handmade recycled brass in February. Join the text list to stay in the loop and get early access to the first product release of the year.

Today I’m sharing 7 outfit ideas featuring my black over-the-knee boots. These are my exact boots ($40), and I also will link a few others for you in case they are sold out in your size:

Sweater / Sweater coat / Jeans (also in curvy) / Bag

Sizing notes: I went up 2 sizes in the sweater for an oversized fit. 

Top (c/o) / Blazer / Jeans (also in curvy) / Bag (c/o)

Sizing notes: Top runs oversized, I recommend sizing down.

Blazer (c/o) / Similar tee (also similar) / Jeans (also in curvy) / Similar bag (same bag in black)

Sizing notes: Blazer runs oversized.

Similar coat / Shirt (c/o) / Leggings (also in plus) / Bag (c/o)
