Trend Alert: Over the Knee Boots

Photography: Lindsey Thoeng

Fall comes with a few amazing things: pumpkin spiced-desserts, stunning foliage, the first sip of a steamy beverage on a brisk day, orange hues at sunset, and of course the fashion. This fall I am obsessed with the color persimmon, suede-everything, turtlenecks, sweaters, and my beloved over-the-knee-boots.

Over-the-knee boots can be easy enough to wear like I am doing here. I just paired them with a simple combo of sweater + jeans, and the boots automatically elevated my look to a more glam and chic one. And it can get even more stylish when paired with a dress or skirt. The secret to getting it right when pairing them with jeans is to choose skinny or leggings style.

These pictures were taken last Sunday, when I went for lunch in Soho with my friends. Because it was daytime, I chose to wear a more spontaneous look. But I am looking forward to go party wearing them with an awesome dress.

These boots are a very easy trick to look polished while still being comfortable, since heels are not required to look fabulous with them. They are a staple. 

They are also very practical because they make your legs warmer. Which means that they will be great for the upcoming winter season. And speaking of legs, have you noticed how long my legs look with these boots? They give the impression of a longer and narrower body. I love it! I might just opt to live in it this fall, and probably during the winter too.

I was wearing:

Boots: Call it Spring

Watch: Great George

Sweater: Uniqlo

Jeans: DSTLD
