What to Wear With Knee High Boots Plus Size Edition

After spending literal months searching for the perfect pair of knee high boots that fit your calves and are sturdy enough for everyday wear and then basically buying them in every single colour, or maybe you found them on Insyze in just a few clicks, you may be wondering, ok now what? Whether you’re in a style rut or just want some inspo we’ve got some great tips on what to wear with knee high boots for plus size because you know those boots were not just made to sit around in your closet day after day. 

With a Dress

Wearing a shirt dress with knee-high boots is a versatile look that is perfect for transitioning from the office to the bar. Choose a flattering dress in a midi length like a skater and wrap style where the hem falls to just before the gusset or top of the boot showing some skin or tights.  If you prefer longer styles, look for dresses that cover the top part of the boot. For a retro vintage look we love a bolero and cinched in waist moment.

Knee high boots are winter staples, we literally wear them daily. Layer your look with leggings, a jumper dress and finish the look with a longline coat or jacket.

With Jeans

We love seeing your looks on Insyze and the Plus Size Outfit Share group on Facebook and our second go-to for what to wear with knee high boots plus size is with jeans inspired by you. To get this look tuck the jeans into your boots. We recommend a skinny or slim fit to avoid bunching around the knee and giving you a slouchy look. Try tucking your jeans into your socks to create this or if the whole thing is just not working for you (trust us, we’ve been there) try jeggings or even leggings.

Then just add a tunic, long length sweater or a cute top and scarf for a winter chic style.

With a Skirt

A top tip for pairing knee high boots with a skirt outfit is to make sure that your boots fit you well both at the ankle and the calf. We love boots that have adjustable straps  and/ elasticated panels so you can feel comfortable wearing them no matter your outfit choice. If your boots are a bit on the loose side, you can have a bit of a slouch, especially at the ankles. 

Like with dresses, choose midi length skirts for a classically chic look. Full circle skirts are super feminine or, for a more sleek silhouette, choose a figure hugging pencil skirt. 

For a more fun and flirty vibe, we love a mini skirt. Create definition to your waist by adding a belt and a cropped cardigan. Keep it casual with flats or swap for heeled knee high boots for sophistication.
