SIDE BY SIDE: OTK FOR TKO
A sure-fire sign it’s really October: the emergence of boots. Truth be told, it’s really one of the major reasons (maybe the only reason!) we get excited for the cooler season. They’re a staple for any woman in any wardrobe, and with very good reason. They are super-versatile, super-chic and super-timeless. Although we will always be loyal to our ankle booties or riding boots, there’s a new silhouette on the fashion block that has us gleeful in ways unimaginable. Introducing the #OTK. In long form: the over-the-knee boot. At first they seem slightly intimidating with their obvious length and stature, but really, isn’t fashion about taking a risk? And don’t risks typically have the greatest rewards?
Look 1: Office Knock Out
For more weekday office-friendly attire, the OTK are the perfect pairing with (p)leather leggings and a crisp white blouse that hits at the hip. It’s at once appropriately classic while also being edgy. Mix it up with a 90′s inspired mood ring and black bucket bag.
Look 2: Date Knock Out
Crisp fall days mean weekend nights spent in a chunky sweater dress and a pair of rich black OTK with a stacked heel. The fun happens with your accessories: layer on a multi-chain necklace, complimentary stacked rings on your fingers and a metallic clutch.Commanding attention is what fashion is all about and now your legs get the VIP treatment.
