Even though this statement boot can be a challenge they are worth a try. They can even work for every body type, so lets take a look at how to pull off the over the knee boot in real life.

Tall Girls

Tall girls will find it easier to wear over the knee boots as they are not such a challenge with long legs, however if you do not want to pull attention to your height then you might want to stay away from this trend.

Over the knee boots will highlight your legs, but you temper the statement they make with understated shapes on top. Go for an easy sweater dress that hits at the thigh and has some space between your boots and your hemline.

Curvy Girls

Girls with curves can rock these boots. Go for a pair that hits right above the knee and create a lean leg line with a pair of dark denim that is in a similar shade. As for the top go for long blouses or sweaters that hit below the hip and finish it off with a jacket thrown on your shoulders.

Athletic Builds

If you height is average and you have an athletic frame then over the knee boots are a great way to highlight your leg line. Go for jeans or tights that are the same dark color as your boots. The look can be kept classic with a blazer and scarf with a belt at the waist.


You do not want to overpower your frame, so pair over the knee boots with structured and fitted pieces that show your shape. You shouldn’t hide your boots under a long hemline, as this will make your legs shorter. Rather go for a miniskirt that leaves space between your boot and hemline.

At the Office

If you plan to carry this look to work then you need to make sure that you keep your upper thighs covered. Also keep your top half classic with a button down short, blazer or turtleneck.
