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 least one other place. If you’re planning on showing a little thigh, opt for long sleeves or a higher neckline. For colder temps, layer with a cape, trench, or peacoat.
OTK boots come in all different heights and widths, so my best advice is to try them on first. Lucky you, most places these days offer free shipping and free returns. I’d suggest ordering a few pairs and keeping your favorite. [WARNING: This method may lead to keeping more than one pair!] I had to have these Franco Sarto Pameline OTK boots. The back split topline, the square toe, and the block heel… all the details are TDF.
