How to Style Your Overknees
One of my favourite must-haves for autumn and winter are my overknee boots. Merely because they are keeping you warm and they are giving every outfit a stylish look. Even though there are already a lot of fashionistas, who love this style, I noticed that there are still many girls, who do not know how to wear their overknees and moreover, who do not dare to wear them because they are afraid of looking trashy and ridiculous.
I know that there are a lot of people, who think that overknees are cheap and trashy because some of the people I know feel that way as well and they even told me so. In my opinion, it is the way how you style it. So, today I am going to tell you my secrets on how to style your overknees for looking classy, chic and fabulous with my outfits from “5 Steps to Transition Your Outfits” and “Preppy College Look”!
It is actually really easy because there are only about two rules to consider.
C O R R E C T F I T
The first rule is the right size! Your overknees should have the proper fit to your legs, which means they should not be too tight because then your legs will look big and on the other hand, they should not be too loose. Besides the weird look of your legs, which seems to be lost in your loose over knee boots, in addition, it is also super annoying. Due to that, you are going to correct your shoes every few seconds, and we all know that if clothes don’t fit, they are giving us such a hard time and an uncomfortable feeling.
The best overknees are from Stuart Weitzmann. I love them because they have laces to tie them close and they are so comfortable!

The second rule is a little bit more complicated to tall girls. (Never thought that there would be an advantage for short girls when it comes to fashion!) Small girls have it a little bit easier since all of the overknees are going to have the right length and they will be ending over the knees. Now you might think this is an obvious point, but I also have seen overknees, which are ending at the knees. Those boots are giving you an unflattering look, and they shorten the impression of your legs. So try to find overknees, which are really ending over your knees and which have the correct fit because then your legs will have a lengthening silhouette look.

For a pretty and chic look, style your overknees with dresses or skirts, which is also my favourite look. Since it is already super cold, add a cardigan or a fur vest to complete your look.
I am styling those looks with tights in a skin tone, but if you want to be a little bit more undercover then style your overknees with a thin black tight. (Please DO NOT wear a thick tight, because that would give you an impression of being five years old again!)
If you want to look more casual, there is also a great way to rock your overknees with jeans. I think I don’t have to mention that it has to be a skinny one since this is obvious, but just in case. Furthermore, going for this look is also perfect for winter because overknees over jeans keep you extremely warm during cold winter days!
