Happy Tuesday! I've said it once and I'll say it again - my very favorite thing about blogging is getting to interact with you all! Last week a sweet follower and fellow SLP messaged me about over-the-knee boots. She is considering buying a pair, but wanted to know if they will still be in style next year. I totally resonated with her concern because it's legitimate. OTK boots seem trendy and why spend a lot of money on boots that may not be in style next year.
Well, after my initial gut feeling and a bit of research, the answer is yes! The popular boot that every girl still needs in her closet is the OTK boot. There are some people that will tell you the OTK boot is on the outs because of the popularity of the ankle booty. But, I respectfully disagree. It is true that the ankle booty is super popular. However, it's not always the best option in those colder months. Personally, I like wearing booties with a dress or a sweater, but when the temps really get cold I reach for my boots.
Up until last year I only had one pair of black OTK boots and then two pairs of boots that hit at my calf. By the end of the boot season as I was switching out my shoe closet I realized I never once wore the boots that hit at my calves. I really don't think it was a conscious thing, it's just that the OTK boots are so much more flattering.
OTK boots are still popular today and will remain on trend because of what they do for your body. They not only make your legs look slimmer because of the long line, but they elongate your figure as well. And just like regular boots, you can wear OTK boots with any outfit - dresses, skirts, leggings, jeans, etc. Like I said before I have one black pair that I wear nonstop throughout the Fall/Winter. Then last year, I invested in a tan pair that had a heel on it. I wasn't sure how often I would wear a heeled OTK boot, but was pleasantly surprised. The heel elongated my 5'2" figure even more and it was nice having a dressier OTK boot option.
I included some images from a previous post today to show that you can definitely wear OTK boots with rompers or dresses as opposed to pumps or booties.
