Over the Knee Boots

I love how some gals can wear Over the Knee Boots with short, short skirts and look fabulous in them, but can I pull it off? I might have to go with the skinny jeans inside the boots and leave the skirt for those skinny minis. I am worried that jeans and pants inside the boots might be to much going on and my legs will look like tree trunks. I guess I won’t know until I try on a pair and, after some research, I think a little breathing room in the leg is the way to go…the sucked-in, tight ones aren’t for me.  Now, I have to figure out flats, wedge, chunky heel versus a thin heel.  Then decide between suede and leather? Stand up or fold down at the knee and, finally, color.  So many decisions!  I am hoping that when I try them on, it will all fall into place. What about you?Will you be rocking the over the knee boots or will you be leaving that trend to the trendy?

  1. I was just on Nordstrom.com yesterday wondering if I could pull these off!!! I’m thinking black suede low heel-but, need to try on. Please let me know what you decide!!!!

  2. You can wear the over the knee boots under a longer skirt for extra warmth without the Pretty Woman look. Also, though I am in my 40s, I still think they look good over pants. But I don’t feel comfortable (mentally) in OTK boots and a mini skirt these days.

    • I love that idea and wasn’t really thinking of long skirts.. Maybe I’ll make that a trend! LOL!!! I have to give them a go with pants. I will wear skinny pants when I try them on to do a test run. Thank you for the idea! xxRidgely

  3. Hi Ridgely – I bought my first pair of Stuart Weitzman OTK boots, the Lowland flat, last winter and now have a second pair, also SW in the 2″ block heel. I wear mine over jeans for the most part and I just turned 50. Go for it, they will look great on you!


  1. […] that I am seriously considering Over the Knee Boots and, if I wear them with a short skirt (maybe!), I will need to get a pair of Over the Knee […]
