Over-the-knee boots are probably my favorite cold weather trend this year. As I am with most trends, at first I was a little skeptical. Even when the most beautiful trends start surfacing online I always think, "Okay. That looks nice. But could I actually wear that, you know, in real life?"
Denver is a casual city. It's not exactly know as a fashion mecca. Sure, no one is going to stop you from stepping out in your most fabulous outfit, but this isn't New York, where you can walk down the street wearing the most insane getup without incurring so much as a sideways glance.
But when Denver winter rolls around, I almost exclusively wear boots. Giving this trend a shot would only work wonders to expand my winter wardrobe.
I fell in love, utterly (and pleasantly) surprised by how wearable the trend is. Sure, there are infinite ways rocking a pair of OTKs can accidentally slide into "Pretty Woman", but there are just as many ways to pull off stylishly sophisticated or casual-in-couture. And with so many beautiful options in stores right now, finding the perfect pair for your personal style is easier than ever.
Here are a few of my favorites. Is this a trend you'll be taking on this year?
