It is not news that knee-high boots are trendy! If you’re a fashionista, I am sure you got your own pair already – yay! But wait, it’s time to go out and you’re a little clueless about what to wear! No problem, I’m here to give you some ideas and tips to rock those high-knees!
The cool thing about these boots is that you can either dress them up or down and you’ll look amazing either way! Below 3 tips to help you find what to wear with knee-high boots boing out:
1. Start from the basics! Sometimes we’re just overthinking it! For this look, I decided to wear not so fancy pieces and it turned out pretty well! The leggings and top are the basic pieces, but the fur flannel and the high-knees are the ones making this outfit look perfect and more dressy for going out.
2. Leggings and skinny jeans are your easiest and smartest choice. If you think about, jeans and leggings are the easiest pieces to pair pretty much anything and you’ll never go wrong with these.
3. Wear a fluffy or oversized piece. You’re already wearing tight on the bottom, so it is important to balance your outfit by adding a fluffy top or sweater, or even if you decide to wear a skirt with it, a ruffle hem mini skirt will look perfect!
If you love my outfit here are the details breakdown by piece:
Let me start off by saying OMG these leggings! I was very skeptical about these because they’re pretty expensive for a pair of leggings, but I was seeing almost every blogger friend wearing them and saying great things about them, so I decided to take advantage of the 20% discount that was on their website during Black Friday and give them a shot thinking that I had nothing to lose – if they didn’t work out I can just easily return them back because they do have free returns, yay! So, guess what? These should be called MIRACLE LEGGINGS because they suck EVERYTHING in! Yes, sister! These have become my new BFF in this post-partum phase and are definitely worth the investment! Again, these are pricey, but you will see that every penny is worth for these guys! You can find the leggings at the Spanx website or you can also buy them from Nordstrom for the same price – $98 for regular sizes and $102 for X’s sizes.
Top and Jacket
The top that I’m wearing is under $20, currently on sale at Express. This basic top should be on every girl’s closet; it pairs easily with everything: leggings, jeans, a skirt, and the quality is great! Super soft and warm, perfect for a cool/cold weather.
The festive fur flannel jacket is from Target and it’s only $30.00! It runs true to size, but it is oversized and cropped, so make sure you wear a long tee under it if you’re not comfortable wearing cropped tops alone like me 🙂
It’s been a couple of years now since these over-the-knee faux suede boots with a tie-closed at the top have been on trend. These high-heeled boots give you that extra confidence making you feel sexy on every step you take. They run true to the size and you can also get them from Target for less than $45.
I hope these 3 tips help you put together your over-the-knee outfit for your next outing! Let me know in the comments what color of high-knees you have in your closet.

    I still have yet to find the perfect pair of OTK boots for my long legs! It seems they never want to stay UP on my legs – or they’re not even high enough to start with haha! But these are so cute on you and I love the way you styled them. Simplicity is key 😉

    I love these OTK boots! I can’t believe that they’re from Target, what an amazing find! I feel like the tie in the back will help them stay up.

    I adore this elevated causal look! Leggings are my jam right now, especially if I can find fleece-lined ones for an extra layer of warmth. Such a cute look, babe.
