Ultra-Chic Ways to Wear OTK (Over-the-Knee) Boots in Summer

Most people keep in the back of their closets their knee-high and over-the-knee boots for the autumn and winter months, storing them in the back of their closets as soon as the climate warms up, but as the writers of Who What Wear discuss the do’s and don’ts of wearing OTKs, nothing appears to indicate that the shoes are seasonal. In fact, celebrities can’t seem to get enough of their boots as they slip on their tallest pairs during their summer nights out. They’re even wearing them during the day with mid thigh length dresses and rompers.

But some are still stuck on the idea that the only boots suited for the season are ankle boots or wellies for rainy days and festivals. However, according to fashion website Lyst you can approach the new season with more variety, wearing anything from a mid-calf, wedge or styled heels, over-the-knee boots, shoe boots or even “wear-anywhere flats.” Thus, anyone that is doubtful of the OTKs ability to blend in well with your summer wardrobe, should check out the following outfits for inspiration.

1. The Jeans-and-Tee Combo
One of the easiest ways to dress up a plain outfit, such as the typical jeans and t-shirt ensemble, is by wearing it with OTKs, taking your casual look to a whole other level.

2. With Denim Cutoffs
Many worry about this boot style being too sexy, and probably avoid wearing shorts with it at all costs. However, with a tribal and blazer to cover up more skin, you can still look tasteful in cutoffs and OTKs.

3. The All White Outfit
If you’ve got white thigh high boots in your collection, Style Blazer suggests giving the illusion of white pants by pairing it with a white shirt dress. Wear it with a gold layer necklace and a different colored clutch for contrast.

4. Go for Mod
Another effortless outfit that is ultra chic, channel your inner Twiggy and put on a mod mini dress for that swinging ‘60s vibe. Neutrals are a safe bet in terms of footwear in case you’ve got complicated prints on your frock.
