How to Wear Over-the-knee Boots Over 40 – Trendy Outfit Ideas

How to Wear Over-the-knee Boots Over 40 – Trendy Outfit Ideas

You loved my article where I shared dresses that you could wear with high-knee boots.

So I decided to write another related article and share some ideas on how to wear over-the-knee boots over 40.

There will be outfit ideas that are currently trending and definitely are appropriate for your age.

I just want to say one thing. Since I don’t have a model over 40 I am sharing images from Pinterest.

But seeing the slim women in the image doesn’t mean it won’t look good on your body. The main thing here is to get an idea and use it with your own clothes.

Copy the style formulas and try them on your body. I am sure you are gonna love all of them.

It was a long summary and now we can start.

Midi skirt and a long cardigan

High and over-the-knee boots look the best with midi-length clothes.

So what you can do is style knee-high boots with a midi or short skirt and a blouse. Use a long cardigan as a layer piece.

Use some accessories and your outfit will be ready.

This is an outfit that you can easily dress up or down. You can do it by choosing the classy or casual top (and/or cardigan).

This is the article for women over 40 but women of any age can wear most of these outfits.

Oh, and I want to mention another thing.

Age is only a number for me and it should be the same for you. I am just mentioning the actual age because you guys are searching for outfit ideas with these words.

That’s the only reason. Other than that, I don’t think you need to strictly follow any style rules to create a stylish look.

Now, let’s get to the second idea you can try.

Blazer dress

I mentioned above that thigh-high boots look great with midi dresses and skirts.

But I personally think that they look the best with short dresses (skirts).

And so for the next idea, I want you to try a blazer dress with over-the-knee boots.

Blazer dresses are so popular right now.

Although I am not gonna lie, blazer dresses are not for everyone.

I have a pear body shape and I don’t love how they look on my body. Hips and thighs are the widest part of my body. So, they don’t look great on me.

But if you have those slim, long legs you MUST try it on your body.

Don’t tell me that blazer dress is very short for your age. Just forget and try it.

You need to love your body and feel confident in every outfit because you are beautiful.

Sweater dress and tights

Sweater dresses are another thing that you can style with over-the-knee boots.

It will be a great outfit for fall and winter, when you want to feel comfy and warm but still wanna look stylish in cold weather.

You can layer the outfit with a trench coat, oversized blazer, or a faux fur coat.

This will become a fabulous day-to-night look you can wear anywhere.

Midi dress and blazer coat

It’s time for a more formal outfit.

And for this, you are gonna need a pretty, flowy midi dress and a blazer coat (you can use another coat as well).

Take a structured handbag as an accessory and you are good to go.

You can wear this outfit to official meetings or at the office.

By the way, if you want to find the best handbag that you can use with everyday outfits, check out my article here.

Sweater dress with a mini skirt

Let’s get more comfy and chill.

Get your favorite sweater dress out of your closet and style the next chic casual look.

For this, you are gonna need a sweater dress, over-the-knee boots, and a mini skirt.

Don’t forget accessories.

This outfit will be the go-to outfit for every day.

It’s a very simple, sexy, and modern outfit that will get tons of compliments.

Basic top and light-wash denim

For another casual look, you can pair a basic top with light-wash denim and over-the-knee boots.

This will create visually longer legs on your body.

You can use so many layer pieces, jackets, and coats for the cold winter season.

For example black leather jacket will do a perfect job here. It will make the outfit look even more casual and chic.

But if you want this outfit to be more formal, you can wear a simple, long cardigan or a brown (black) coat.

Blue denim and oversized sweater

I have tons of outfit ideas today. And I am guessing over-the-knee boots will become statement shoes for many people.

This next outfit is also very simple and comfy. But if you use the right accessories, you are gonna have the complete chic look.

And you can wear it every day.

But you can definitely dress it up as well.

If you want to do so, you should wear high boots with block heels. They look more elegant than the flat boots.

Furthermore, when choosing boots, pointed-toe boots are the best choice.

Wearing high heels can visually lengthen your legs and flatter your body shape.

Tall boots do that job perfectly.

Also if you want a blue denim and boots outfit to be classy, opt out for the boots with at least 2-inch heel height.

White jeans and a cropped sweater

For the next easy look, you need to pair that perfect pair of boots with white denim and a cropped sweater.

It will be a good idea if you choose some neutral colors for a whole look.

You know, boots in neutral colors, such as brown (in this case) look even better.

I think I don’t need to talk about how trending oversized sweaters have become in the last few years.

They are not only for the younger generation. They look great for women over 40 and more as well.

And you know what?

Cropped oversized sweaters are another universe.

They make the outfit look so comfy, modern, and chic.

I can’t miss this pretty woman when I am talking about stylish women over 40.

She is Erin Busbee from Busbee style. I love her since she has her own personal style and she looks just perfect.

In this picture, she is wearing a sweater dress with leather boots.

I just wanna say that she looks perfect.

And I also wanna tell you to look at her and try to follow her style tips as well. She is sharing some great stuff.

All black outfit

I have shared so many outfit ideas above but…

This is one of my favorite ways to wear black boots.

Mostly, I wear over-the-knee boots with an all-black outfit. Because I think it looks so chic and elegant.

Plus I am hiding a few extra kilos in dark clothes, you know what I am talking about, right?

You can follow and try this look in different ways.

You can go all-black as I name the outfit or you can wear brown color boots with black clothes and accessories.

If you need a more detailed idea, black skinny jeans a black tunic top and boots are all you are gonna need.

The style of the boot doesn’t matter here. You can never go wrong with all-black outfits.

By the way, if you love wearing black outfits, check out my article with a list of all-black outfits that you can wear every day for a month.

Short tulle dress

Along with modest style, you can try a short tulle dress and white over-the-knee boots.

Yes, women over 40 can also wear short tulle dresses.

The thing that you can’t see many women wearing them, is because they don’t care about styling tips and trends.

Or they care but are not confident enough to wear different things, that will distinguish them from others.

And I don’t want you to do the same.

I want you to start experimenting, and try new things you never tried before.

Forget the age. You are and always be young.

If you want to wear sexy boots, white is a good option for you.

This will be a perfect holiday outfit though.

Oversized sweater with leggings

When I think about a comfy winter outfit, the first things I remember are a cozy V-neck sweater and black leggings.

These are the things you are gonna need for the next over-the-knee boot outfit.

And I can’t say much about this.

I just want to say that this outfit looks and feels so comfy for women over 40.

Oversized turtleneck sweater dress and mini skirt

Another chic outfit idea with an oversized sweater.

But it’s a bit different.

For this specific outfit, I want you to try an oversized turtleneck sweater dress with a mini skirt and high boots.

This is the look that you can wear anywhere in the world. And I should say this is my other favorite outfit idea for today.

There are so many options to complete and style this outfit differently.

For example, you can wear a brown trench coat with it.

Or you can use a leather jacket to make it even more modern.

I mean, there are so many ways to make this outfit work for you.

Midi split dress and trench coat

If the winter season is very strict in your country, this next outfit will be a good fit for you.

I don’t want to mention over 40 again and again. But don’t think that I don’t mention your age because these outfits are not for you.

You should try all these outfits this year. Promise me, you will…

And let me know how it will go in the comments below.

Don’t forget that you can always find me on my socials. And if you never heard about it, here are my Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram pages you can find and DM me.

So for this outfit, I want you to try a split midi dress and a trench coat with high boots.

Split midi dress is the best idea to style with over-the-knee boots. Sometimes it looks weird where the top of the boot starts with the dress.

But this split will make it look like you are wearing something short, so you won’t have that problem.

Wear some accessories, like a structured handbag, glasses, or scarf with the outfit and you are ready to go.

Tunic sweater

And last but not least I want you to try a tunic sweater with over-the-knee boots.

By the way, it’s a great idea for the office.

Style the look, add some accessories and you have your next chic office outfit.

That’s all for today.

Now don’t say that you can’t wear mini skirts because you are over 40 and they are not appropriate for you. Forget that!

I hope you like the quick tips I shared with you.

And I also hope that over-the-knee boots will become a closet staple for you as a woman over 40.
