Good news guys: spring is almost here. And as we anxiously await the exact moment we can pack away our parkas and heavy sweaters, don’t store your entire winter wardrobe. Turns out, a footwear staple from winter is going to still be major this spring. Yes, we’re talking about the over-the-knee boot.
As you may be in head-over-heels in love with popular over-the-knee boots this season, this type of footwear may be tricky to wear sometimes. These shoes are considered to be most intimidating because of their double nature. Depends on how you wear them, they can give your outfit different character. When worn with a mini-skirt or white a high heel, they give your outfit a very sassy vibe. Meanwhile, when paired with jeans or a long coat, they can be super casual and chic. Even though finding your favorite way to wear over-the-knee boots might be a bit challenging, it is totally worth the try because they can actually work with everyone’s style preferences.
