The Best Over-The-Knee Boots


Gigi Hadid Wears Thigh-High Boots in NY

I love the over-the-knee boot trend for many reasons (like the shoe’s wearability and style). First of all, they’re so flattering and totally elongate your legs! By now you have all seen the famous Stuart Weitzman 5050 Over the Knee Flat Boot. that I am wearing in today’s photos. They have been worn by Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Fergie….now that’s a boot with an A-List following!

Over-the-knee boots come in a variety of styles (high or low heelsleather,  suede even open toe) and are super wearable with jeans, dresses, or skirts. My Stuart Weitzman pair is perfect for a day outing because of the low heel and flexible soft elastic that makes up the back of the boot. The creamy leather in the front is gorgeous and can be easily dressed up or down according to the occasion.

Effortlessly sexy and extremely dramatic, over the knee boots one-hundred-percent take the cake when it comes to outfit-making footwear. Neither fringed stilettos nor red soles really compare in terms of the drama – and the functionality of the OTK boot. Much like leather pants, they are one of the warmest items you can wear in fall and winter weather, and – I kid you not – one of the most versatile pieces you can add to your wardrobe.

As intimidating and ‘for-models-only’ as they may look, over the knee boots look as amazing with a classic A Line skirt and flirty silk dress as they do with (super casual) skinny jeans or shorts a la Vanessa Hudges. The main styling tip to remember is that when your shoes are making a major impact, keep all other parts of your outfit as simple as possible. These boots have no competition, so allow them to make their statement and you’re all set.

Whether you favor suede or leather, a spike heel or no heel at all, I’ve put together beautiful over the knee boots. Check out this gorgeous neutral taupe pair for only $90!
