The Over the Knee Boot Craze

While some fads come and go, others become staples – earning that special place in your wardrobe year after year. This my friends is what has become of the over the knee boot! If you’ve been eyeing a pair for a while now, I am here to tell you it’s a smart investment to make. This style shoe is here to stay and it is hotter than ever.

Leg Coverage

One of the reasons I gravitate towards OTK boots is because they are a good compromise between too much leg and pantyhose. Maybe you want to rock a mini dress (as seen here) but you do not want to introduce another texture, stockings for example, into the mix. An over the knee boot will provide you with that moderate coverage. The same goes for short shorts and mini skirts as demonstrated in the featured look.

Chic Appeal

It is no secret that wearing a pair of OTK boots will up your chic appeal about 100%! But don’t take my word for it, just scroll through #overthekneeboots on Instagram and see for yourself. Today’s ensemble would have been far less dramatic without the shoes. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Over the knee boots come in many colors, heel heights, and fabrics. I guess you can call them a “practical purchase!” Fashionistas world wide are wearing flat OTK boots with leggings and jeans, heeled OTK boots with dresses and skirts, and vice versa. Textures range from soft suede, brushed leather, to shiny metallic. Go ahead, splurge on a few pairs…I won’t judge you! Stay tuned to see how I styled my red suede OTK boots on Thursday.

      I am SO flattered that you like it Shell! I am drawn to embroidered pieces and with a pair of OTK boots you can get away with such items during the cooler months. Happy Tuesday!
