3 Ways To Wear Over Knee Boots In Spring/Summer

over knee boots spring summer
 Northern hemispher-ers: Spring has officially Sprung! And if you're currently in the process of tossing those heavy layers to the back of your wardrobe, there's one piece that you may wanna leave at the forefront: knee high boots. 

After styling my suedette, knee-high boots for my trip to the UK (here and here), I figured why not rock them for tropical Australia too? After all, no one likes a one hit wardrobe wonder!

Today, I'm going to show you how you can rock those over knee boots for the balmy weather! Aussies; these trans-seasonal looks are perfect for your Autumn weather too. FYI they will last you through the dropping temperatures too. #WorthyInvestment

If styled wrong, over knee boots and bate legs can leave you looking a little bit like Kandi the stripper (that's Kandi with a K, duh!), but styled well, they can look pretty darn awesome!

Here's three ways to style your over knee boots for the Spring/Summer season...

Look One: The Lace Dress
 dress knee high boots Pairing your over-knee boots with a dress is headed into the tacky danger zone. Stay on the chic side by teaming a feminine lace or crochet dress with your boots. It's time to give this angelic baby a bit of sex appeal!

Dress: Sportsgirl (Similar here)
Bag: Local Boutique (Similar here)
Earrings: Lovisa

Crochet is set to continue to dominate 2016 and this Sportsgirl number is perfect for dressing up and down. I wore it for Jake's graduation last month with tan lace-ups and a cute clutch and I've been looking for a way to funk it up a little for daywear. Enter it's perfect partner in crime: over knee boots!

I think the reason that this particular dress works so well is due to it's demure and innocent vibe; the delicate lace, the white, the classy length. 

When choosing a dress to pair with your boots, avoid bodycon and overly short dresses, otherwise you could look like the red light district is calling your name...

Look Two: Denim Shorts

Give a timeless classic a twist with knee high boots and an off-shoulder top.

Top: Boohoo (Get it here)
Shorts: ASOS (Similar here)
Boots: Missguided (Similar bargain pair here)
Bag: Miss Selfridge
Sunglasses: Tory Burch (Get it here)
Watch: Daniel Wellington (Get it here)
Bracelet: Swarovski (Get it here)

I tried a camel hat with this look, but I looked like I was suited to screaming 'yeee-hah' on a mechanical bull. Safe to say, I threw it back in my wardrobe and decided that less is more with this one. Instead, I accessorized with my Daniel Wellington watch, Swarovski stardust bracelet and good old Torys.

I think the key to this look working is the length of your shorts. I personally say a huge 'nooo' to hot pants, as I think they will cheapen the look. On the contrary, don't go for a knee length hem either, as you will look like your about to go collect the harvest with Uncle Billy. Regular length fit are it!

As for the top, just keep it classy girl! I adore the on-trend, yet simple, vibe this Boohoo off-shoulder scuba top adds.

Look Three: The Shirt Dress

A shirt dress is the ultimate trans-seasonal staple. Whether your in Spring or Autumn, the temperatures are practically made for a shirt dress and knee boot combo!

Dress: Primark (Similar here
Clutch: Tony Bianco (Similar here)
Boots: Missguided (Similar here)
Earrings: Lovisa (Similar here)

When I visited family in the UK in January, I couldn't resist a trip to Primark (or Primarni, as my Mum likes to call it). I picked up this cute burgundy and white shirt dress for a tenner and the rest is history! Primark doesn't have an online store **my bank account lets out a sigh of relief**, but I did manage to find a very similar dress to mine at Missguided.

A longer sleeve shirt dress and knee high boots provides just enough coverage for the Spring weather, whilst looking a whole lot fresher than a plain sweater and jeans combo. 

These tassel earrings are my new 'ohmygosh' jewellery piece. Please note, my other half seems to think that they look like hula dancers. Gotta love a male perception on fashion!

Jokes aside, I am begging you down on my knees, don't put those over-knee boots to the back of your closet!

  60. Absolutely adore how you've so stunningly styled these looks Rach! Over the knee boots are so gorgeous for spring/summer, can't believe I never thought of them before. You've totally inspired me (as always) with your flawless, babin' sense of show-stopping style. I'm crushing so hard on all three styles, totally heart-eyed over the first look, a white lace dress is such a classically chic look to rock. In love with the off-the shoulder chilled out vibes of look two and look three has got me totally mesmerised too, the shirt-dress is beaut on you and such a cute, contrasting piece to pair with the boots. LOVE! Haha, love that your other half thinks your earrings look like hula dancers too! I totally agree with you about the male perception on fashion; it's so funny. They really make the most crazy remarks about our clothes and shizz don't they?! ;)

    Hope you had the happiest Easter my babe, you deserve it <3

  71. I love OTK boots. I've especially been loving them styled with a knit sweater style dress. I'm yet to invest in a pair though. Last year I saw them everywhere but was a little apprehensive and held off. Now I want them and I can't seem to find a pair I like
