How to Wear Thigh High Boots
We all know that thigh high over the knee boots have something of a reputation. However, while they may sometimes need to be handled with care, we can’t help but have a huge soft spot for these shoes – afterall, who doesn’t love to be a little daring every now and then?!
The main concern for styling thigh high boots is; how can you wear them without looking trashy? The answer lies in a few simple styling tips, though be warned – serious sass is needed to rock them like a queen.
What to Wear With Thigh High Boots
The main rule is to pay attention to proportions. For wearing thigh high boots with dresses, you’ll want to leave a gap between the top of your boots and your hemline to make the most of your look. To balance it out, choose a top half with long sleeves and a looser fit to avoid the trashy feel. Boxy dress shapes and oversized slouchy silhouettes also look fab with thigh high boots.
For this look, we love our Bramble – Wine Pointed Toe Over The Knee Lace Up Boot paired with our gorgeous chunky knit Shona – Cream Roll Neck Jumper Dress.
When wearing thigh high boots with jeans, the skinnier, the better! Looser fit jeans will be hard to neatly fit inside. It’s also a good time to play with your layers – jumpers, cardigans and scarves all look great with over the knee boots for a cosy fall fashion look.
If you’ll be wearing your thigh high boots in the day, why not go with a flat heel? These are perfect for more casual occasions when you still want to strut your stuff.
What to Wear With Thigh High Boots Going Out
If you are wearing your thigh high boots for going out, you can break some of the rules – that is what rules are for, right?!
To dress up your thigh high boots, firstly choose a pair with a little something extra – we’re talking sparkles or a stiletto heel. You can also use colours to create a stunning look – all-black is undeniably chic for a night out, especially if you add some stand-out jewellery to your outfit.
We love the way our Insta gal @daiseyodonnell has styled her bejewelled Boujee – Faux Suede Black Thigh High Diamante Boots – perfect for a date night or girls night out. Working a super-short hemline with long sleeves keeps proportions in check, while the tight fit of the dress adds some sass appeal. Pairing black with black adds serious style points, plus really makes a statement out of those sparkles!
Finally, our Revel – Black Faux Suede Side Zip Over The Knee Boots make another killer thigh high boot option. The stripe detail is so on point for an all-black outfit, though we think they would also look gorgeous with white OR jeans. Whether you’re dressing them up for a night out, or going for a more casual look, we think these are the perfect multi-wear over the knee boots.
How to Keep Thigh High Boots Up
Finally, before we go, we want to help answer the question that every thigh high boot newcomer has battled with – just how do I get them to stay up?!
You don’t want unwanted wrinkling to ruin your look, so try out a few of these hacks if you’re struggling to get your thigh high boots to stay up…
- If you are wearing tights or socks with them, the thicker the better – they can help give your boots something to hold onto
- If you are wearing them with bare legs, some double sided fashion sticky tape can be used around the cuff to keep them from slouching
- Make sure you store them upright – if left crumpled at the bottom of your wardrobe, creases can form that will stop the boots from standing upright when you wear them. Use a clipped coat hanger to hang them up in your wardrobe.
