Autumn Fashion Wishlist - Over the Knee Boots

28 comments
Ah, September. That back to school buzz of brand new stationery, a year full of promise and of course, new clothes. I find that no matter how old I get, I still seem to catch these excited feelings about this time of year. Now it's obviously been several millennia a while since I had to prepare for going back to school, but updating my wardrobe for the new season is something I still get to do year after year, and as far as I'm concerned, I'll probably never tire of it!

I've noticed a few trends coming through to the high street in the new autumn collections that have my pulse quickening, and one of them is over the knee boots. While they've been a fixture in autumn/winter fashion for a while now, this year I'm seeing so many more and in so many different variations than in recent seasons. And guess what - I kind of want them all. Predictable, aren't I?! I've compiled a little wishlist of some of my favourites, so take a look and see which ones you like the best!

Autumn 2016 Fashion Wishlist - Over the Knee Boots

1. River Island Studio Over the Knee Boots - These are so sleek, and the attention to detail makes them look, in my opinion, a lot more expensive than they actually are. The fact that they're sock boots is great for those of us with skinny calves, plus I love the contrast with the leather forepart and the gold trim on the heels. The only negative about these - for short girls like me - is that they really do look very long, more "thigh high" than just over the knee. Realistically, they'd probably come up to my waist. Oh well! Maybe these are just ones to lust over rather than actually buy.

2. Dune Lace Up Boots - I think these might be my favourites. I adore that lush black suede, and that fabulous lace up detail. Luckily, they have a zip fastening, otherwise it might take you a week to put them on, although quite frankly, the finished result is so fabulous that it would totally be worth the effort. The block heel and rounded toe are genius on this boot - anything pointier might have taken them into slutty territory, but as it is, they're just effortlessly cool. I simply cannot stop looking at them. Oh, and did I mention they're also available in khaki? Swoon.

3. H&M Tan Over the Knee Boots - A super affordable (£39.99!) offering from H&M, which easily holds its own against a lot of much pricier boots. These come in black as well, but I think the tan pair looks more expensive, and creates more of a contrast with the heel, adding that little something extra. These are a great shape and have a little tie up detail at the back - just on the top section. They'd look fab with some blue jeans, a soft white polo neck jumper and a shearling jacket.

4. Asos Tortoiseshell Heel Boots - Another tan pair, these are super simple. There's almost nothing to them, apart from a simple drawstring fastening at the back and, of course, that gorgeous tortoiseshell heel. These are a great casual option, but again they're probably more suited to taller girls than me. I'll just have to settle for wearing them in my fantasy life, where I'm actually Gigi Hadid.

5. Kurt Geiger Tassled Boots - Now these are quite different from any of the others, and quite the statement piece. I love the fringe detailing and think it gives off a cool, boho vibe. These boots would make the ideal partner for any fedora and gilet combo.

6. Zara Flat Over the Knee Boots - Chic and minimal, I'd pair these with something classic and sophisticated, like a tailored coat and a ladylike handbag. The flat, stacked heel makes them ideal for running around in, but they're sleek enough to look smart at the same time. They're also available in tan and are another great affordable option, coming in at £49.99.

7. Kendall and Kylie Grey Stiletto Boots - Available via Asos, these could be difficult to style, but done right they'd look sensational. As suggested in the photo here, they'd work really well with a simple little black dress, but I'd go for something quite demure (high neck, long sleeves) to balance out the overt sexiness of the boots.

What are your feelings on over the knee boots? Yay or nay? And are there any on my wishlist that have caught your eye?

    1. It can be difficult to find knee high or OTK boots when you are skinny - I know only too well! Keep searching because your perfect pair is out there somewhere! x

  4. I get excited about back to school shopping even though ahem, I've passed those years a long while ago, haha. Still, the sales and promotions can't be beat, especially when it's for pieces you love and have been wanting for a while. I love your OTK boot selections, especially #4, that accent heel is so cute! Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  11. I have contemplated over the knee boots, but you definitely need super toned, skinny legs for these. Curvy legs just won't do as you end up looking like sausages! lol

    1. Haha! Well my legs are more of the scrawny chicken variety, but with average sized feet, so I usually have to try on 100 pairs and discard 99 of them to find boots that work! x
