How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Winter Over the Knee Boots

By Tuesday, January 12, 2016 0 Permalink

It was so hard to choose just two ways to style winter over the knee boots and I wanted to show the all-weather versatility of these boots when layered appropriately. The first outfit below can be worn practically year round depending on what outerwear you go with, so I kept the collage to the base layers. If you do live somewhere bone-chillingly cold, don’t try to wear this look outside the house without a coat, gloves, and beanie. Stay warm people!

The second look is a little more obviously fit for cold temps. I was inspired by and wanted to recreate a look from Atlantic Pacific where Blair styled a peacoat with a plaid skirt, over the knee boots, and big pom pom beanie, but alas peacoats are in low supply. I guess the ’70s have taken over and long coats reign supreme. But I know some of you already have a peacoat or two so do yourself a favor and check out Blair’s look. It’s extremely cute.

My only hard and fast rules for wearing over the knee boots in winter are the following; Make sure your jeans are super skinny because scrunching at the knees doesn’t look good, and if you want to wear a skirt keep your upper body warm as warm as possible with lots of layering. The sleek look on the bottom should balance out the overly bundled top half.

8. Rebecca Minkoff Regan Crossbody

This is the go-to outfit for over the knee boots this season. Of course you’ll need a coat, I suggest a long overcoat, but this is the look bloggers and celebrities have been wearing – sweater, button front skirt, over the knee boots. It’s easy to replicate and extremely cute. You can switch up the colors too, and wear a brown or tan skirt instead, and when the weather gets warmer go for a t-shirt, but for now you’ll want your chunkiest sweater. Keep the ’70s vibe with a retro crossbody bag and add simple accessories. The feel of this look, as styled by Julia of Gal Meets Glam, is feminine so think classy earrings and pink or nude nails.

All black everything! Just what I like. Ok, technically the jeans are gray, but still, chic and cozy is what we’re going for and the gray jeans actually add a little edge. But aside from the black, what I love about this outfit is that it’s taking really super sexy over the knee boots and pairing them with preppy pieces – a long wool coat with faux fur hood and plaid scarf. But I say double down, no triple down on the black with black gloves and a black funky tote. The result is an edgy but feminine look that you’ll want in your wardrobe.
