Knee high boots were once a trendy item, but they've now become a staple piece in many wardrobes. With the right styling, knee high boots can go almost anywhere. Look for classic colors like black or chocolate brown in authentic or synthetic leather or suede. This classic shoe looks great with go-to pieces in your work wardrobe or can be dressed up for a fun night on the town.
Knee high boots can work at the office, as long as your look is work appropriate. Stick with dark knee high boots with a round or pointed toe and a low stacked heel. This keeps the boots on the fashion-forward side versus the overtly sexual side. Try a blouse and knee length skirt with dark tights. On casual Friday, knee high boots can be worn with a loose top and dark denim skirt. Your hemline should always skim the knees when wearing knee high boots in the office. You can also wear knee high boots tucked beneath trousers.
Wear knee high boots for casual events like shopping or grabbing lunch with friends. Try a tunic with leggings and knee high boots. A long cardigan over a tank paired with skinny jeans, works seamlessly with jeans tucked in to knee high boots. Because the knee high boots create a lean, continuous line, try a long top with jeans and boots, topped with a bright scarf. Knee high boots with a slightly slouchy shaft work best for casual occasions. This gives a glamorous bohemian look to everything you wear.
While knee high boots can't go to a black tie event, they can work for dressy occasions like a nice dinner or dancing with friends. Try an asymmetrical cocktail dress. Keep texture in the dress to a minimum if you are wearing suede boots (though leather works best for evening). Keep the hemline just above the knees to avoid a tarty look. A bright dress in a jewel tone works well with black tights and knee high black boots, accompanied with a small clutch bag. If you are going low key, try a glitzy top with beading or jewel detail with jeans and knee high boots, for an effortless look.
