SUEDE OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

Over the knee boots are a staple for the fall and winter seasons.  This year, I finally made the investment and purchased my first pair.  The neutral cognac color is classic and timeless.  I have my eyes on a few black pairs too.  They are surprisingly comfortable, and the leg-lengthening silhouette is this short girl’s dream come true.  My tip for styling OTK boots is to pair them with clothing that’s covered up in at…
