The best way to wear over the knee boots to work would be with a fitted skirt or dress that reaches the knees. Keep it professional by covering up any skin exposure on your upper thigh. Wearing leggings or tights in a matching color underneath is also a great alternative to accommodate shorter hemlines. Another style tip: wearing dark-coloured clothing and boots goes a long way in creating an illusion of length in your body shape.

The trickiest problem is how to wear over the knee boots with thigh-high hemlines. The best way to keep it classy is to create an outfit with sleeves or layers. A long-sleeved knit sweater dress would look great with over the knee boots. Alternatively you can throw a cardigan or varsity jacket over your shoulders to counter your bold footwear. This look is great for casual days out.
