Over the Knee and Out on the Town

By Vivian Drury

Over the knee boots are the latest trend that clicked right off designer’s runway to everyone’s must-have list for fall. From suede to leather, to zippers to ties, these sleek boots are fun, classy, and very fashion forward.

When I first discovered this new trend, I was instantly intimidated. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to pull off this trend because my legs aren’t as stick skinny as any of the models wearing them in the magazines. However, these boots are pleasantly surprising! Their suede material and dark colors are very slimming and their smooth feel is very comfortable, so they’re perfect for those nights on the town.

Also, these boots don’t require you to empty your piggy bank either! The Nordstrom options below are so fun and stylish and look just as good as the other $500 pair.

Ok so now you have them, what do you wear them with??

One of my favorite trends that pair perfectly are the simple cropped top with a high-waisted skirt or denim shorts.

I love high-waisted skirts because they are perfect for transitional weather. When its slightly chilly outside, but warm in bars, parties, and restaurants, the skirt or shorts and boots give you enough warmth while still looking sexy and showing just enough skin.

Looking for something a little more casual and comfy? Pairing over the knee boots with an oversized sweater is the perfect way to head into fall! Don’t have an oversized sweater? No worries, any oversized dress will do. The loose dress will keep the look simple and the boots will kick it up a notch. Feel free to style it up with a choker or more jewelry to dress it up.

Over the knee boots were definitely an intimidating purchase for me to make, but I am so glad I decided to be bold! They can be paired in so many different ways, ranging from comfy sweaters to dresses perfect for going out!
