What are Over the Knee Tights?
Over the knee tights are actually exactly what they are called. While over the knee stockings actually end above the knees, over the knee tights usually have a more opaque or darker bottom part that ends above the knee. The upper part, on the other side, usually is more sheer or at least optically different. I personally prefer tights over stockings in this case, by the way, as they are simply more practical. They don’t slip as much and keep our bottom warm – even in winter. 😉

Over the knee legwear is not as versatile as classy hosiery. Nevertheless, they can be styled with a lot of different outfits and looks. I am going to show you some different styles and tell you, how to team this kind of legwear.
Mini Skirts and Dresses
Definitely a classic look with over the knee tights is an outfit consisting of a mini skirt or dress in combination with the cheeky hosiery. I personally like to wear a simple 60s inspired mini dress or skirt in combination with the tights.
