On Pinterest I always see pictures of women wearing chic over-the-knee boots and I drool a little. The boots are so chic and look effortlessly stylish. They look so slimming, too! Well, as we have heard time and time again, some things look better in pictures than they do in real life. Over-the-knee boots are one of those things. As it turns out, styling and being able to pull off over-the-knee boots is actually a bit of a challenge because they don’t always flatter every body type and style preference! Here are a few tips on how to wear them for every body type.


  1. For tall girlies: You ladies have it the best when it comes to over-the-knee boots. Your long legs are beneficial because the bootsboots accentuate them and make them look even longer! Pair them with a simple sweater dress for a great balanced between your boots and your hemline.
  2. For curvy ladies: If you have curves you can totally rock these bad boys! It is all about how you wear them. Go for a pair that hits right above the knee and creates a lean, long leg line with some dark denim jeans. As for your top, wear a long sweater or blouse to finish the ensemble off.
  3. For petite gals: When it comes to my petite pals, I suggest pairing over-the-knee boots with fitted pieces that show your shape. It is important not to overwhelm your small frame! Don’t wear tops or dresses with long hemlines that make your legs look short, go for tops/dresses/skirts that leave plenty of space between your hemline and boots.

These stylish boots can work for any body type! You just have to know how to style them in a way that works with YOU. 🙂
