Some of the coolest trends are so short-lived that we blink and in a flash, it’s gone; then, we’re left pining after the next “it” style to trial. So, it’s quite refreshing when trends overlap collection seasons lasting longer than their normal 15 minutes of fame. For those of us who love to be on-trend, but just don’t have the time to keep up with the Joneses on an everyday basis, stick with some of the basic wardrobe essentials. And this season the over-the-knee boot is the boot trend to try. The designs this fall are all about variations to the over-the-knee style. Wedge, sky high heel, flats, riding boots, each option is just as versatile as the next. The key to keeping this style chic and not overtly sexy is to know how to wear your boots. The flat OTK is great for daytime looks (i.e. running errands), pair it with a great pair of denim, an oversized cable knit cardigan and fitted tee. If you need to get slightly dressed up, but still want to keep that casual and cool theme, opt for the wedge OTK boot. Wear it with a fitted blazer, print tee and printed scarf. The height on the wedge and the rocker chic look gives you that edgier style, without looking like you’re trying to hard. To get that bohemian chic look, grab your over-the-knee riding boots and mix it with a fur vest, gypsy tunic and leggings. And if you really want to dress up your boots, the sky high OTK stiletto looks best with a pair of skinny jeans or short dress. Word of caution, because these high heel boots are so over-the-top sexy, make sure that your attire doesn’t match that same sentiment. Keep it simple and make sure that you don’t show too much skin. The over-the-knee boot is your statement piece, so let them really shine!
Nothing goes better with a pair of over-the-knee boots than a great pair of leggings.
