28 Street Style Looks That Will Persuade You Into Wearing Thigh-Highs This Year

Thigh-high boots have an unfairly bad rap. Rather than thinking of, say, the nattiness ofPuss in Boots, it's easy for our minds (and, on occasion, anyone's outfit) to easily veer intoPretty Womanterritory. We believe these supposed hurdles shouldn't be met with instant defeat, and the fact that designers and high-street stores have continued to produce them year after year says something. From personal experience, we know each autumn season the concept of wearing  gets that little bit easier.

The proof is in the retail pudding: If the style keeps coming back every time the temperatures dip, theremustbe plenty of girls out there acing the thigh-high game already. We do understand if you still have reservations, but in general, this has become a trusted boot trend that started off in plain, safe black iterations (still entirely legit to wear these now, if you're starting out) and has since moved into more adventurous realms—don't be surprised to see bright red suede or patent leathers cropping up for A/W 18 (just one look at and you know things are about to get serious).

To help you out, we've put together a handy guide to wearing these no-longer-raunchy boots in as many fashion-focused ways as possible.Scroll through for 28 foolproof style tips when stepping into thigh-high boots.

1. Go for gloss red and pointed toes.

Style Notes:These are almost so sassy you can't resist them. Fendi's  (£1090) have literally taken over the streets this past month.

2. Wear with a cape for dramatic effect.

Style Notes:Why not go the whole pirate panto and wear your tan boots with a swooping cape?

3. Sweaterdresses and thigh-highs are a perfect match.

Style Notes: There's something about the cosy homeliness of a jumper dress that balances out the sass of OTKs.

4. Black OTKs always look good with a denim mini.

Style Notes:It's a classic combination that French girls are particularly into. Add in a checked blazer and you're looking at preppy 2.0.

5. Borrow from the boys.

Style Notes:On the other hand, you can try a more masculine-inspired look with your thigh-highs, as Man Repeller's Leandra Medine does in an oversize blazer. Again, the contrast helps diffuse the va-va-voom of the boots.

6. Smart short skirts look best with plain black boots.

Style Notes:If you've got a complicated outfit going on up top, just remember that black thigh-highs can help to ground a look.

7. Slouchy finishes are back.

Style Notes:Slouchy '80s-style boots are back in over-the-knee form. They're best worn with an expanse of bare leg in order to flatter out the excess of leather and make it clear that your pins do exist.

8. Don't assume your boots have to be neutral.

Style Notes:This season there are plenty of more colourful options on offer, should you want to make more of a statement. Colour-match and go.

9. Suede OTKs always have a '60s vibe.

The Street Pie

Style Notes: Suede, low-heeled over-the-knee boots are inherently retro, so wear them as such—with a mod-inspired miniskirt for example.

10. If you're brave, try an oversize hoodie.

Style Notes:This bold look won't be for everyone, but if you're the kind of girl who think Yeezy's creations are tame, try an oversize hoodie with OTKs.

11/28
11. Use them to elevate skinny jeans.

Style Notes:The addition of a furry coat and suede thigh-highs instantly ups the ante of a basic sweater-and–skinny jeans ensemble.

12/28
12. Asymmetric hems help show your new boots off.

Style Notes:Considering there are plenty of handkerchief and asymmetric hemlines going on right now, you may as well make the most of a trend and wear your thigh-highs with them.

13/28
13. Colourful sock boots are key for A/W 17.

Style Notes:Over-the-knee sock boots have been blazing a trail all year long, with  recently taking the lead.

14. Monochrome is always a wise approach.

Style Notes:It can actually be easier to wear one bright colour head-to-toe than trying to season an existing, more sombre look with something punchy. This is a prime example of the idea in action.

15/28
15. Just reveal an inch or two of leg for a risqué moment.

Style Notes:Take your cue from Olivia Palermo and wear your over-the-knee boots with a miniskirt for a date night–worthy ensemble. The pairing will reveal just a sliver of skin for a look that's sultry yet understated.

16/28
16. There are so many iterations, you can choose a version to suit.

Style Notes:This season, you get to choose which OTK style feels most "you"—are you a leopard-print, no-heel kind of girl, or a Swarovski-encrusted £5570 woman?

17/28
17. Layer long-over-long on more ladylike days.

Style Notes:Your over-the-knee boots can be used as a demure, body-lengthening tool when layered underneath a longer hemline.

18/28
18. Wear oversize short shapes to counteract slimline legs.

The Street Pie

Style Notes:What's great about just having some body-hugging boots on your bottom half is that you can experiment with voluminous minidresses, coats and sweaters, and you won't look or feel bulky.

19/28
19. Multiple hemlines also work with over-the-knee boots.

Style Notes:It can be easy to think you need to keep things simple with a dress that hits the top of your boots, but experimenting with layers of varying lengths can be really effective too.

20. Do try pairing them with everything you own.

Style Notes:You just never know when an unexpected combination could strike the right note. We never thought overalls and over-the-knees could work, but here is the outfit that bucks tradition.

21/28
21. Shorts can be grown-up.

Style Notes:Denim shorts and over-the-knees make for a trusted L.A. go-to, but tailored shorts and flat boots feel far more appropriate for Europe.

22/28
22. Match up your accessories.

Style Notes:By sticking to black suede extras, this girl-in-boots getup looks chic and easy.

23/28
23. Cardigans and long boots are a match made in heaven.

The Street Pie

Style Notes:The overt allure of leather thigh-highs can easily be softened and cosier with just the addition of a lovely knit.

24/28
24. Tan suede looks good with summer's cotton dresses.

Style Notes:Camel, beige and brown tones work together 365 days of the year, so you can mix your seasonal pieces together easily with a pair of chesnut-suede over-the-knee boots.

25/28
25. Try white boots with black tights for a change.

Style Notes:Make a bold statement by clashing white boots with fishnet tights.

26/28
26. Your sweater dress and boots can match.

Style Notes: As far as leg-elongating hacks go wearing a same-tone sweater dress and OTKs is up there with the best. This Peter Pilotto knit ticks the box nicely.

27/28
27. All-black textures are always good.

Style Notes:A pair of black thigh-boots will serve you well and go with every other black thing you own.

28/28
28. Party boots work perfectly with skinny jeans.

Style Notes: If you can't put your skinny jeans down then vamp them up for the season with a pair of bold slouchy OTKs.
