It has been gloomy the past few days. Surprisingly, the sun popped out bright and early today. Nothing makes me happier than just being out chasing the sun with my Instagram husband who is also my acting paparazzi, haha!
Anyway, I dug into my closet to find my most versatile piece for a head turning Fall look—the Over the Knee Boots. These are three reasons why I love these OTK boots:
- They make you look taller-
For a petite girl like me, it is sometimes a struggle to find something that gives the illusion of looking taller that I’m willing to wear when it is cold. The added bonus is they’re way more comfortable than high heels with all the extra support you get from the boots gripping your legs. Just make sure that the dress and the boots are about 3-4 inches in between. Now, if you are already tall and do not want the added height then simply choose no heel boots (click for no heel boot ideas). Or, you should check out some heeled options here.
- The right ones can make you look slimmer-
The neutral tone (Taupe, Nude, or Gray) has that slimming effect that makes your legs look longer. It does help that these boots have a tie in the back that let you adjust to a more fitted look. I prefer boots with a tie also because it helps keep them from falling down throughout the day. It covers your entire leg, keeps you warm, and gives you a sexy, sophisticated look. Check out these slimming boots from Chinese Laundry for more ideas (a lot of them have ties!).
- They make me feel powerful-
This part I guess is all in the mind. I love the confidence I get from wearing this style. I can definitely say that this will be one of my favorite “go to” holiday styles. The added height, slimmer look, and the overall feeling of wearing this dress is what’s giving me the CONFIDENCE to walk around and be myself. Need a statement outfit to go with your OTK boots?

There is no age limit to rocking a fall and winter outfit for holiday festivities. All you need is a powerful piece in your closet. Powerful to me means CONFIDENCE and that is the sexiest thing you can wear to any event. So, if you are wondering still what to wear…. You probably already have something in your closet… try it on and check yourself in the mirror and see yourself with confidence.
