Thigh high boots, also known as over the knee boots, are boots that either fully or partially cover the knee; they can even extend to your thigh. Thigh-high boots are having a moment right now, and not just because it’s cold outside and they keep your legs nice and toasty. They are a staple in anyone’s fall and winter wardrobe! This trendy boot can be hard to style sometimes, all you need is a little creativity. Here are some ideas for how you can wear thigh-high boots like a boss
Wear them with a skirt or dress
If you’ve never tried wearing a skirt or dress with thigh-high boots, you’re missing out! There are lots of great styles of skirts and dresses that pair beautifully with thigh-high boots. Play around with short and long combinations. Take advantage of the extended boot by wearing a short dress or skirt. You can work with shorter clothing with out revealing too much skin while staying warm. If you want to dress up some thigh highs try pairing them with a short leather skirt and a sexy mesh top; or wear them with a classic little black dress. No matter your style these boots will add an edge to your look!
Wear them with jeans
Jeans are a staple in most casual outfits, thigh-highs take a simple casual look and elevate it. If you want to look more casual, the best way to wear a pair of jeans with thigh-high boots is to team them with a big, cozy sweater or a blouse. This is a great outfit for cold weather, as a long sleeve shirt or a warm sweater will keep you nice and toasty! However, it is important to pair these boots with the correct style of jean. For example a tight style like a skinny jean is perfect for wearing thigh high boots over as they hug the leg and will sit nicely under the boot. A looser style of jean is like a pair of flares or wide leg will be a bit more difficult so you would have to wear these boots underneath the trouser.
Rock a bold heel- or not!
If you’re looking to elevate an outfit try wearing a pair of boots with a bold heel- this is a great way to mix up an outfit that might look bland. There are many different heel styles and lengths to choose from! A chunky platform thigh-high boot has a great surface area to distribute your weight making them more easy to walk in and providing more support. A stiletto heel thigh-high boot has a very thin heel and is ideal for our more confident crossdressers with loads of experience walking in heels. Wearing any heel on these boots will elongate and feminise your legs! Wearing a pair of boots with a bold heel is a great way to add some personality to your outfit without taking things too far.
Get boots with different prints, colors and textures
Try wearing a pair of boots with a different print, color or texture. Not only will this look interesting and unique, but it’s also a great way to shake up a more formal outfit. For example, if you’re wearing a pair of black pants with a black shirt, try wearing a pair of boots with a bold, colorful design. This is a great way to add some interest to an otherwise plain outfit. If you’re wearing a plain monotone outfit, you can wear a pair of boots with a different texture, such as a fur-lined boot or a knit boot. Try wearing boots with a different shade that contrasts the outfit, for example if you are wearing blue jeans wear a velvet black boot. The velvet adds a subtle touch of texture while the black pops against the blue keeping the look elegant. If you are feeling bold try wearing a pair of black boots with a brightly colored heel, like a red or green heel! If you are experimenting with different prints, colors and textures be sure to not to go overboard. It can be very easy to overwhelm an outfit, so we suggest chochoosing ose one bold statement piece that is brightly colored or textured and build the rest of the outfit around that!
