Boots with knee-high shaft in the style of the 70s are currently celebrating their big fashion comeback. And the trend shoes look so beautiful. If we scroll through our Instagram feed at the moment, a very specific shoe model quickly catches our eye: In this fashion winter, 70ies boots with a shaft up to the knee dominate again and overknee boots are fierce competition.
Rightly so, because whether classic in black, in a crumpled slouchy look or with a trendy snake pattern, with a pointed or round cap – the boots immediately exude a touch of retro charm and look elegant and at the same time so damn cool. We’ll show you why knee-high boots are now at the top of our shopping list and how you can really showcase the trend shoes.
Knee high boots: how to style?
The nice thing about knee-high boots: they work with jeans, dresses and skirts (mini, midi or long), with casual bermudas and flowing culottes – just about everything our winter wardrobe has to offer.
Trend combination: knee high boots + midi skirt
Our absolute favorite look for the autumn and winter season: boots for a (top) midi skirt! Because the combination of knee-high boots with feminine skirts and dresses looks super elegant on the one hand, but also incredibly casual on the other. You can easily expand the duo with an extra-long wool sweater or a cool hoodie. The coarse tops go perfectly with feminine bottoms.
In addition to lace bottoms, the boots with the knee-high shaft also fit, for example, satin skirts and dresses or pleated models. Particularly nice: If your skirt or dress comes with a slit, so that your boots and legs flash out slightly when you walk. In addition, the boots are allowed to protrude a little from the leg – this looks particularly stylish and also conceals strong calves. Win win.
Of course, not only midi pieces work, but also short skirts and dresses with the trend shoes. For example, this can be a jeans mini or a bib dress made of cord. Cord fits wonderfully with the 70ies boots anyway, especially if they come in rust brown or beige and have a block heel.
So that the mini look does not look cheap, it is best to combine a high-necked turtleneck or a cozy coat. In addition: Please combine eye-catching boots with simple clothing – and vice versa. Otherwise, the look quickly becomes overloaded.
Combine knee high boots with culottes
Do you want to create the perfect 70s retro look? Then grab your favorite culottes from the wardrobe (a plaid model or colors like mustard yellow and orange nuance will best match) and style them now with the trendy shoes for winter.
Classic: style boots with jeans
If these boot looks are too extravagant, the trend shoes can of course also be classically styled with jeans. This is where narrow-cut skinny models work best, with their trousers legs tucked into the shaft. The days when only slim jeans were combined with the boots are over. The fashion professionals now combine loosely cut slouchy jeans or cargo pants with the shoes to create a casual look. Such trousers are also inserted into the shaft of the boots and easily slipped out.
Attention: Since the pants already have a lot of volume, you should grab a tight-fitting top here and best put it in the waistband. With the skinny model, you do it the other way round and prefer to use a wide hoodie or oversize sweater. The mix of different widths ensures beautiful proportions.
Style knee high boots tone on tone
All-over looks in one and the same color (especially light beige and white shades) are currently a huge thing. The trend boots for autumn and winter are also perfect for trendy tone-on-tone outfits.
Street style girls now use knee-high boots in light tones such as beige or cream and wear clothes from the same color family. This has two advantages: first, tone-on-tone looks stretch the silhouette and second, the look looks serious enough to shine in the office.
