Move Over Bootie, Try Over-The-Knee Boots

 

OTK 2 Ways

 

The bootie is getting a lot of (much deserved) press this season, and it’s one of my most loved boot styles. However, I am also a huge fan of the oh-so-chic over the knee boot. These may not be as practical for running around all day as a comfy bootie but, for a night out, there is nothing sexier. So, when I saw these fabulous (and well-priced) Sam Edelman OTK boots at Nordstrom, it was love at first sight. They have the perfect heel, are made of gorgeous suede and can be styled myriad ways. I’m still on a bit of a spending freeze so they are on my wish list for now but I’m hoping they find their way to my closet soon. The one thing to remember when styling a look with an OTK boot is that the proportion is everything. Because the boots come up so high on your leg, avoid oversized or extra-long tops. Stick to more tailored pieces that will flatter your figure and let the boots really shine.
