You guys, are over the knee boots not the hottest fall shoe right now?! I bought a pair of *almost* OTK boots at Forever 21 years ago, but after seeing all of the amazing outfit combos across Insta/Pinterest lately, I’m in the market for a taller pair!
Let’s get this out of the way…
Hi, my name is Amanda, and I am borderline obsessed with every variety of OTK boots. Flat ones, heeled ones, colorful ones, simple ones, patterned ones, suede ones, leather ones, ALL THE ONES!
Since I’m currently in the market for a pair, I’m browsing the less crazy styles + more of your classic/basic options that I know I’ll get optimal use out of!
Below are some of my top contenders. All of these are under $200, with most under $100 …and some under $50! 🙂
Breaking these beauties down left to right…
1. Burgundy Faux Suede OTK Boots – LolliCouture
After seeing this pair, I actually fell in love! To me, this color is the definition of Fall. The combination of the chunky heel, the height, the material, and the gold zipper detail have me ready to order ASAP. The LolliCouture site was a really great find. I’ve never shopped there before so I can’t speak on customer service or quality, but they have dozens + dozens of stylish, unique, and really affordable boots!
2. Chinese Laundry, Cognac Flash Leather OTK Boots – Zulily
When in the market for riding boots, I’m usually drawn to brown + tan shades. Preferably something with a structured style + minimal detail. I’m definitely loving this cognac pair for everyday. I can see them being styled appropriately for the office, as well as the more casual weekends!
3. ‘Ginette’ OTK Boots – Nordstrom
These charcoal grey heeled beauties are haunting my dreams! Really, I think I’ve had three dreams about them. I find them to be a the perfect neutral shade, and the simplicity of the boot is just my style. I wanttttt!
4. Journee Collection Kane Studded OTK Buckle Boots – Kohls
Though perfect as pictured, these OTK’s come in 4 other colors! This boot is a fabulous option for a casual, everyday look. They add a touch of sass with the studded detailing up the back, and they’d definitely be comfortable enough to wear during all of your favorite Fall activities! 🙂
5. Steve Madden Suede OTK Boots – Nordstrom
You can’t go wrong with brown, suede boots — and this pair comes in black as well! In either color, the boot would be the perfect addition + would [quickly] become a staple in your Fall + Winter wardrobe.
6. Ivanka Trump OTK Dress Boots – Macy’s
I really adore this pair! They are probably the closest in style to my near + dear Forever 21 boots [pictured above] that will soon need replacing. I love the chunkier heel + sleek body of this OTK!
GUYS, HELP ME!! WHICH DO I CHOOSE?! Or are there other OTK’s out there that I should be looking at? 😉
Do you have a pair of OTK boots? Where did you get them + how much do you love them?!
Leave me a link to your blog/insta/pinterest, etc. if you’ve posted photos of how you styled them!
I would say buy them all because they are gorgeous!! However, I really love the last two and the burgundy ones! Can’t wait to see which you pick hehe!
Ugh, the struggle!! I think I’d choose the burgundy or the black pair first. I don’t knwowwww!
The burgundy is def a fashion statement and they are so gorgeous and affordable. However, the black pair you could wear with anything haha.
The struggle! Decisions, decisions!
So cute! 🙂
Thanks – my favorite style of Fall boots!! 🙂
Those boots are gorgeous! Especially the ones you have on 😍 I should definitely get some new Autumn boots 🙈 ~ S x
Thank you! They’re so great for Fall! I was actually in Forever21 today + mayyy or may not have picked up a new pair!! :):)
You’re welcome! And oh my gosh really?! I love Forever 21 😍😍 I’m positive I’ll find gorgeous ones in there, I bet yours are amazing ~ S x
Those boots and that purse are perfection!
Thank you so much!!! Loving OTK’s!!
I LOVE fall boots sooooo much, and I’m crazy excited that boot season is IN! 🙂
Yes!! They’re the cutest!!
Ahhhh, the thigh high boots!!!
I’m always so worried I won’t pull them off but this is making me want to go out and get a pair ASAP!
Yess! You totally should! They can definitely look skanky if worn with something too short or too tight, but there’s a million ways to pull them off tastefully! I’m obsessedddd with them this year! 🙂
Agreed! They are definitely stylish! 😉
