I would be remiss if I did not also provide suggestions about what to avoid when building an outfit that includes over-the-knee boots:
- Keep the patent leather over-the-knee boots at home during the day.
- Refrain from wearing fitted mini-skirts with over-the-knee boots to avoid a look that is too provocative.
- Be cautious when wearing bold-colored over-the-knee boots, such as red, if you are self-conscious about your legs. Bold colors tend to visually enlarge an area of the body.
