Have you guys been checking out the new fall boots in all the shops? I have been so excited to break out these amazing over-the-knee boots! It’s finally October and beginning to feel a bit more fall-like. I even treated myself to a Pumpkin Spice Latte recently in hopes that it would encourage the weather to drop in temperature. I think it’s working! Today I’m talking about one of my go-to ways for styling over-the-knee boots for fall.

I wanted to show you guys the easiest way to style over-the-knee boots with jeans. Since it’s coming up on the cooler months this is an easy look to wear in the evenings or all day long! I think some people stray away from over-the-knee boots because they think they’re too edgy. I hear ya! But pairing them with a light floral top and some basic denim makes the look a little softer and more wearable. Over the knee boots can often drive attention to your legs but if that’s not your favorite area, I’d suggest wearing a long cardigan. I feel like a long cardigan balances out the look and gives you a little bit of coverage. This was one of the tips I picked up when I was a stylist and I always rely on it!

Let me know what you guys think of this style! I’d love to hear how you like to style over the knee boots too! I also like wearing OTK boots with dresses. The dress I’m wearing is on sale here but if you’re a size 2, check it out here. Also, the OTK heeled black boots I was wearing are under $100. Such a better deal than the Stuart Weitzmans!

 I think over the knee boots are just what I needed to get me in the mood for some more cool weather.

    Love your over the knee boots, they look very pirate like! 😀
    I love all of the great options for Fall and Winter shoes which I’ve seen
    at the stores and have set my eyes on a pair of Isabel Marant ones, can’t
    wait to click them home. 🙂

    • lol they are kinda pirate like!! I totally see it 😉 Excited to see the Isabel Marant ones you get!!

  • These boots are so good and love the dark florals.


  • Love those boots! The ties on the back are so cute!

    xo, Carey

    • I love the ties too! Makes for a fun detail. Thanks for stopping by Carey!

    Oo I love those over the knee boots! I like the color a lot! So cute with your floral top!

  • I used to be afraid of the OTK boots. I’d see them on everyone else and immediately look at their legs lol. I think I didn’t want to draw attention to myself. But now, I really want a pair (of black ones) because I think they are elegant, especially the ones that hug your legs in the right places.

    • that is EXACTLY how I’ve felt! Which is why I wore a longer cardigan with it. I’m just not that confident with my legs/thighs/butt and didn’t want to draw all the attention there. I think the boots are elongating though which is good!

  • Absolutely love this look, I am a huge fan of my over-the-knee boots and wear them constantly throughout fall and winter! I love wearing them over jeans or with a shorter dress. They are just so chick and really cool!

    • I love them too!! Especially with shorter dresses. I’ll style them that way next 😉

  • Mara- This whole outfit is adorable. I love it!
    How tall are you Mara? Just wondering, I always felt I was too short to wear over-the-knee boots. I’m only 5’2, ALMOST 5’3. Haha! But these boots are just so gorgeous. Maybe one day I’ll buy a pair!

    • Hi Krystal! I’m 5’6″ I think you could totally wear OTK boots! They’d probably help you look taller too. I think they help me 🙂 I wonder if you’d need to get a shorter style of if they would just hit you higher. Try them and let me know how it works!! I’m curious!
