Over-the-knee boots are undeniably one of Autumn/Winter’s 16’s biggest trends, but the questions remains, how do we wear them? To avoid the danger of looking less fashion and more Pretty Woman, we’re taking cues from some of fashion’s best street style connoisseurs. From Italian designer Gilda Ambrosio to creative director and stylist Ada Kokosar we recommend taking inspiration from the pros.
Gilda teams a pair of slouchy nude leather over-the-knee boots with an oversized satin cocoon style coat, belted at the waist. Don’t have a cocoon coat? Try pairing your boots with a classic trench instead.
Ada always manages to look effortlessly put together. Here, she’s paired a pair of camel knee-high boots with a matching utilitarian leather gilet. When it comes to the rest of her look she’s kept it simple with a black neoprene sweatshirt and a matching wrap skirt.
Tank Magazine’s fashion director Caroline Issa keeps her look classic with an oversized mensy-shirt tucked into a textured mid-length skirt. Don’t have a bag to match your thigh-highs? Channel Caroline and off-set your look with a contrasting leather clutch.
