How To Wear Knee High Boots
Knee high boots are a beautiful style of footwear to add to your closet. Because of their sleek and simple design, knee boots can be dressed up or dressed down to match any aesthetic. The earliest known usage of knee-high boots was in the 15 th century, a time when they were worn as horse riding boots for men. But today, they are considered a fashion staple for women. Saint G offers a multitude of styles, colours, and designs of knee boots to choose from. Our premium leather footwear is perfect for people who are looking to make a fashion statement.
Occasions to wear knee high boots
Over the knee boots are supremely versatile, meaning that you can wear them to suit any occasion. Whether it’s a day at work or a night out with friends, your trusty over the knee boots will keep you looking sharp and stylish. However, many people do not know how to style over the knee boots, and usually end up in outfits that do not match their shoes. For such people, it is important to consider the colour and style of the boots you pick. For instance, a pair of navy-blue stretch suede boots with a gold chain is beautiful, but not as versatile as a black or brown pair. Black and brown are considered neutral colours, so they can match a range of other colours.
Wearing knee high boots with skirts
Let’s learn how to wear over the knee boots with skirts the right way. The two make a great pair, because both items are known to elongate the legs and give you a taller appearance. For a preppy everyday look, opt for a plaid or checker-print skirt, a button up shirt or a sweater, some stockings, and simple black leather long boots from Saint G. Or if you prefer a party look, check out our olive leo print leather knee high boots. They would pair beautifully with a simple black dress or any other neutral coloured piece of clothing. We carry many more unique eye-catching knee boots in our collection, so you can find the perfect statement shoes for yourself.
How to style knee high boots with jeans
Jeans and knee-high boots are both extremely functional and comfortable pieces. But for knee-high boots, it is best to opt for skinny jeans that you can tuck into your long boots. Wide leg jeans and boot cut jeans might not be best suited to long boots as they cannot easily be tucked into boots.
Try a pair of classic blue skinny jeans and pair them with black and brown boots for a fool proof look. You can then add absolutely any colour, print, or style of top to this look and still look put together. Our black croco vegan leather heeled long boots would be a great choice for this look. The boots are black which is a versatile colour, but the crocodile texture adds visual interest.

Leggings can be considered a universal clothing item. It is a good layering piece as well as a good standalone item for your closet. These stretchy bottoms are the best fit for knee boots because they are made from a thin material that is comfortable to wear with long boots. If you want to make a statement with your outfit, put on a pair of leggings with a unique or bright print, and tuck them into a pair of our black suede and leather long boots.
How should knee high boots fit?
If you want to know how to keep knee high boots up, the answer is a good fit. Over the knee boots should fit as tightly as possible on your entire leg while still offering you comfort and mobility.

But make sure the shoes are not too tight so that you can still wear long socks, leggings, or jeans underneath them.
