But, thanks to this season’s trendy staple: Over The Knee Boots – we can all bag the illusion of that dream. OTK boots can make you look tall, sassy and ultra sexy – when expertly styled. Try these styling tips inspired by our favorite fashion babes to avoid any Puss in Boots or Pretty Woman misfortunes. #epicfail
Skinnies + Over The Knee Boots
Use your over the knee boots to upgrade your everyday skinnies. Keep it simple though, over accessorizing may push you into pirate territory. Gigi Hadid keeps things neutral in her Stuart Weitzman Lowland Suede Over-the-Knee Boots.
Denim Minis + Black OTKs
Denim minis and black otk boots are seriously a perfect match. To enhance the appearance of longer legs, leave a little skin to peek through between your skirt and boots. Selena Gomez shows us how to keep things casual, but cool. This Topshop MOTO Denim Mini Skirt is great to pair with OTK boots.
Professional Skirts + OTKs
A surprising pair is the sleek, professional skirt with an OTK boot. This unique look creates a juxtaposition that actually translates as polished. Supermodel Miranda Kerr wears slouchy Hermes Leather Over-The-Knee Boots to combat her otherwise executive look.
Layering + OTKs
You may think letting your hemline hang over your OTK boots defeats the purpose of an extra long boot, but this styling technique is sophisticated and can change your look up for the better. Giovanna Battaglia (right) is a fashion vision in her va-va-voom red Fendi boots. But, if you’re like me, the Fendi price tag sends you into a world of debt just by glancing at it, so thank you Forever 21 for these Red Faux Leather Thigh-High Boots that are a fraction of the price. You can even layer and let a little skin show at the same time with a slitted skirt.
Oversized Sweatshirts + OTKs
This is a bold look made popular by the trendy kween, Kourtney Kardashian. There is a plethora of images of the oldest Kardashian sister sporting her OTK boots with oversized sweatshirts, tees and sweaters. Matching your accessories to your boots will keep your look well-styled, like Kourtney does here with her sunnies and Givenchy crossbody bag.
Black OTK boots are by far the most popular, but they’re also safe. If you like to play around and take risks with your style, try a different colored thigh-high. You can even elevate this venture by making your whole look monochrome like Shea Marie on the left. Ego shoes is a London based affordable shoe brand with an endless selection of colored & fun OTK options.

We all have a go-to Little Black Dress hanging in our closets and if you don’t – what are you doing with your life? Your OTK boots are a perfect accessory that can bring the LBD into colder seasons. No matter what your LBD style is: tank dress, cold shoulder, asymmetrical, etc. – you can be sure your OTKs will be a perfect match.
