O.T.K. (over the knee) boots might remind us all of “Pretty Woman” but the truth is, they’ve become a fashion insider staple, and are only gaining popularity. They are this season’s “must have” footwear, and this Fall, almost every designer has a pair in their collection. However, unlike last season, the sexy-chic style is finally becoming more affordable.
I was initially a little reserved about this post. I sent a picture of the boots to Ashley a couple weeks ago, “Too much for a pregnant girl?” and as per usual she responded with, “Absolutely N O T!”

I decided that I would wear them a couple of times to see how I felt about the baby bump and boots. To my surprise, these boots made me feel more covered up than anything. I was also initially worried about them being too snug in the leg, and how I would feel recommending them to our readers. You see, many O.T.K. boots are cut with a very slim fit, making them uncomfortable or unflattering for women who aren’t, well… Kate Moss or Olivia Palermo. Ideally we want to put items on the blog that all women can feel confident wearing, so I wanted to be sure that the O.T.K. boots I chose to feature would work for most of our readers. I am happy to tell you that these boots are perfect for all body types. After reading many reviews, I went up a half size and thankfully, they fit perfectly. They slouch a little bit on me through the leg (I love the undone look it gives them) and they tie up the back at the top, allowing you to adjust the width. In this post I am wearing them with tights and a tunic dress, but this past weekend I wore them over skinny jeans for a more casual-chic look. They can be styled a million ways, and truthfully, they are the perfect O.T.K. boot for everyone.
