How to: pull off Knee High Boots

Leave a comment

Ok so this post is probably a bit too late seeing as here in England we are soon to be leaving Winter and enter Spring, however somewhere in the world that means Winter will be just around the corner (…..or something like that).

When I bought these  black knee high boots (from New Look) I knew that I was going to have to build up some guts to wear them. Unless you wear high boots often, I think they can feel a bit too bold and you have to be careful what to pair them with so as they don’t look too out of your comfort zone. After all you don’t want to feel uncomfortable in them else you’ll look uncomfortable and won’t pull them off.

Personally I prefer the suede to leather look, I think it’s easier to pull off for someone like me who doesn’t wear them often. However, whatever your choice, I complied together a few looks that I think rock these boots pretty well. Let me know your thoughts!

1. Knee High Boots with a Shirt Dress


This first look I’ve focused on wearing the boots with an oversized shirt/dress. By cinching it in at the waist I’ve created a silhouette frame without revealing too much. I think this is the easiest look for someone who doesn’t wear knee boots often because its probably the least daring. Also wearing a dress like this is forgiving and you can have a big lunch or dinner and hide it well 😜.

Dress: Topshop

Belt: Debenhams


2. Knee High Boots with an A-line Skirt – Plain


This second look is slightly more daring because it features a tight top however by it being a polo neck you can still feel covered yet show off your body. I’ve paired it with an a-line skirt to give it a real 70s vibe. I’ve been loving the combo of these a-line skirts with knee high boots at the moment! I actually bought this skirt intentionally to wear with these boots😄. Here the skirt is plain black which is why I picked a burgundy top – I guess it’s just a colour I’ve been loving this winter😁

Polo neck top: Primark

Skirt: Pull & Bear


3. Knee High Boots with a Playsuit

IMG_0752.JPGTo show a range of options I decided to pick a playsuit for my third look. I feel like khaki has been a big colour this winter so a plain khaki playsuit pairs really nicely  – notice I am wearing tights here … I’m not 100% why I think so but I do think if you wear a playsuit with them they look better with tights hhmmmmm🙈

Playsuit: New Look

Coat: Primark

Bag: Primark


4. Knee High Boots with (another) A-line skirt – Printed

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetThis final look I’ve had to take a photo of because at the moment I’m slightly on the chubby side and don’t actually fit into the skirt (😭😭).. But I thought I’d share it anyway because I really like the look! I’ve stuck with another polo neck and a-line skirt to keep the 70s vibe again. But this time because the skirt has a jazzzzzy pattern I’ve gone with a plain black top! I would keep accessories to a minimun with this, maybe go for some bold earrings but not much else😊.

Skirt: River Island

Polo neck top: Primark



Let me know what you think of my looks! Have you got a pair of knee highs? How do you wear them?!
