The over the knee boots, also named as the OTK boots, are the only pair of shoes, apart from slippers, of course, you can surely wear all year long. In spring, in autumn, obviously in the winter. And surprisingly even in the summer. Given that, they come in a right colour.
Well, yes, apart from slippers the OTK Boots are the only pair of shoes you can wear anytime, almost everywhere and look super chic. However, today is all about the OTK boots.
P.S. You can find my favourite over the knee boots at the bottom of this post.
I discovered how phenomenal over the knee boots are not so long time ago when I purchased my first pair. I decided to go for a brown suede over the knee boots from Stuart Weitzman. Chiefly because I will be able to wear them in summer, too. Plus, they come in the same colour as my favourite suede mini skirt. Making them a perfect suede duo.
My over the knee boots became my absolutely favourite shoes the minute I opened the blue box and put them one. I can say my jaw almost dropped when I realised how easy it is top put them on. And how soft they feel. Also, I must say I never thought this sky-high thigh-high are so warm. Honestly, I feel much warmer wearing this pair of boots than the UGG boots. I know, sounds incredible, though true.
5 WAYS TO STYLE THE OVER THE KNEE BOOTS THIS WINTER
Unequivocally the hottest boots of the season work great with almost everything. However, this 5 ways should be on the top of your list this winter. They are chic, sexy, classy and even elegant. And for the end glamorous.
CHIC in MINI + OTK BOOTS
I’m starting with my favourite way to style the over the knee boots. Mini + mini + OTK boots makes perfect. Don’t you think? Especially when we slightly upgrade this otherwise a rather casual look. Adding a decadent twist to the over the knee boots, it’s way much easier than it sounds. Anyway more about this after the things that make this outfit so chic.
To put it briefly it’s all about length and colour. The key is in the mini and black colour under a short coat. The short coat should come in lighter colour. Either in a neutral or a contrasting colour to the colour of the boots.
Finally about the decadent twist. For the beginning, you can finish this style by layering the mini skirt with a short military coat. Make sure the details on the coat, such as buttons, come in the same colour as the boots. This will make your over the knee boots to pop.
If you are ready for more, wear the sheer black floral dress under the coat.

SEXY CASUAL in OVERSIZED SWEATER + OTK BOOTS
For a sexy casual look wear your over the knee boots with the oversized sweater. Surely you have seen many American celebrities and fashionistas how they do this sexy casual style. What you might haven’t learned yet is how to elevate this look above casual. Not to say overseen and common style. While most of American celebrities and fashionistas look great in over the knee boots and the oversized sweater, you can do it even better.
The key is in the coat you wear with the OTK boots and oversized sweater or sweater dress if you prefer. The coat must be longer than the sweater and should end by your knees. Or slightly above the OTK boots, in case it is the military coat. Almost forgot to mention, the coat must be double breasted.

CLASSY in MIDI + OTK BOOTS
Well, I missed this style in this post. As it’s coming up on my Youtube Channel and into your inbox. So make sure you subscribe to both, my Youtube Channel and my newsletter. You certainly must see how I wear my brown OTK boots with the black midi. Especially if you are intimidated of combining black and brown. Or simply wondering how to style layers that come in different lengths.
ELEGANT in SUEDE + OTK BOOTS
Finally, about how to wear the over the knee boots to create elegant, ladylike look. Must be highlighted, this look is only a slightly more elegant than my usual outfit in over the knee boots. In fact, the focal piece of the outfit shifts from the OTK boots to the skirt. For this reason, the skirt should be in almost the same colour as the OTK boots. Or at least it has to be made of the same material. The same material or same hue of colour will bring the over the knee boots and the skirt together. And make them look like the suede duo is one piece. Why suede? Because we are talking about how to style the over the knee boots to achieve an elegant look. Even more, classy and chic.
Obviously, you won’t be able to pull this outfit off without the princess coat. Remember, to make this style work perfectly and look classy; you should wear the coat and the skirt that are either of the same lengths, or the coat is a bit longer than the skirt.
On the other hand, the suede skirt should end when the boots begin. That is to say, there should be no skin in between of the skirt and over the knee boots. Otherwise, this will be a merely casual look that went wrong.

GLAMOROUS in VELVET + OTK BOOTS
I promise you, this style is all. It is chic, sexy, elegant in a way and most of all glamorous.
There is actually no big secret here. Simply wear your over the knee boots with anything that comes in velvet. Although you might need to put on some short dress or short playsuit in velvet if you want to look glamorous and sexy at the same time. For more of an elegant look, wear your over the knee boots and velvet dress, skirt or shorts, with silk dressing gown coat.
