Consider the color of the boots you’re getting, especially if it’s your first pair. While bright, colorful boots are always eye catching, neutral-colored boots are more versatile and appropriate for everyday outfits, therefore these are the ones you’ll want to start with. These boots can be paired with a lot compared to colored ones.

When you’re wearing knee high boots with dresses, you will want to opt for one that has a slightly rounded toe. This is the kind that works best with dresses. Also make sure that your boots fit well and hug your legs just tight enough.

On the other hand, if you choose to wear shorts, leggings or jeans with knee high boots, choose a pair that has pointier toes. To allow yourself to tuck you pants in to the boot (if you’re wearing them with non-skinny jeans, that is) you can go for boots that are loose and have gape slightly.

More specifically, if you want to wear your boots with leggings, add match colors and textures that contrast with each other beautifully and make sure that they don’t look like a single piece of an awkward clothing item. This means that if you’re wearing black leggings, go for boots of another color like brown or grey or if you’re wearing leather boots, try wearing denim pants and so on.

Wearing knee high boots with skirts can be a bit tricky to pull off without looking rather awkwardly dressed. However, some girls are lucky enough to still look classy and gorgeous in this combo. If you want to try this out yourself, the main thing to remember is the height of your boots’ heels and the length of your dress; the shorter the skirt is, the lower your heels should be.
