The Best Over-the-Knee Boots

Fall/Winter StyleLaurenComment

Over-the-knee boots {also known as OTK boots} are another wardrobe "must-have" this season, and something that woman of every age, height and build can pull off!

I find that many of my petite styling clients and blog followers are fearful that they cannot wear over the knee boot styles, but the reality is that these tall boots elongate and flatter every leg and build, including curvy, muscular and thin legs!

There isn't an exact science or rule to wear an OTK boot hits since different heights will determine where the boot hits. Anywhere "above the knee" is perfectly fine! Wear these boots with jeans, leggings, skirts and dresses...they go with anything a riding boot would pair with, and, in my opinion, elevate every look they are paired with!

I challenge you to try a pair, even if you are skeptical about whether you will pull them off...I bet you will be pleasantly surprised how flattering they are!

Here are a few of my favorite OTK styles + inspiration on how to wear them ::

This cognac-colored pair of Vince Camuto boots were a purchase I made late-summer, and are hands-down my favorite shoe purchase of the season! They are comfortable, seem to pair with everything and are super flattering! {These are a small investment but truly worth every penny. They are currently 25% off, so snag them while on sale!}

I wore this outfit for an event I hosted at the adorable Kendra Scott airstream yesterday! I cannot tell you how many compliments I received on my boots. {My dress is also pretty fantastic and just $69!}

A black OTN boot is a must-have pair for dressing up! I personally prefer a sueded black boot, since they are easier to wear either day or night and to pair with different looks and textures. This Sam Edelman pair has proven to be super comfy, as I have worn them walking around both New York City and Chicago recently! They have a cute tie in the back that also keep them in place.

This is an outfit I wore one evening while in Chicago last weekend. I walked over 2 miles in these boots along the Chicago Riverwalk and my feet didn't hurt!

I love the look and versatility of a grayish-taupe boot. This was an outfit from last Fall, but these boots are still one of my very favorite pairs. The tie in the back makes them really stand out!

This exact pair is by Free People but I have linked several similar pairs, including this fab pair by Marc Fisher, below.

Last but not least, a flat OTN boot is a great substitute for a traditional riding boot. This Sole Society pair is a favorite of mine. It's comfy and a great "mom shoe" that keeps me looking stylish while on the go. I've linked lots of other great flat/low-heeled options below.

The Best Fall Booties

Lauren1 Comment

Happy Monday!

I'm excited to kick off a week-long "Best Of Fall" series here on the blog, where I will be featuring Five Fall Must-haves, featuring one each day.

I touched on why ankle booties are so essential to a Fall Wardrobe + how to style them in my post FALL REBOOT WITH SHOE CARNIVAL, and wanted to share my three favorite types:

  1. the casual or low-heeled bootie
  2. the burgundy bootie and the
  3. dressy or heeled bootie

I'm also showing you the best options to shop and where to find the best booties for fall today.


First up, the casual or low-heeled bootie. Think of the casual bootie as a substitute for a ballet flat.

A comfy, low-heeled bootie that you can pair with jeans, cords and leggings, as well as casual dresses. I recommend a neutral taupe or cognac color so that it can pair with any color scheme.

This pair of casual booties by Sole Society is my current favorite for the fall, and they proved themselves in the comfort department during a trip to Chicago over this weekend. I wore them with both dresses and with jeans, and walked all around the city in them without discomfort!

{Head over to my Instagram @laurenlefevre to see all the ways I wore this bootie this weekend!}

{Note that all of these booties come in multiple colors. Just click on the picture to view all the color options.}


Burgundy & wine tones are the "it" color this Fall, and a pair of burgundy booties may surprise you by their versatility.

I have worn this pair of Halogen booties from Nordstrom with so much more than I ever would have imagined, and, thus, think every gal should own a pair! You can pair burgundy with any neutrals, jewel tones, navy, black, gray, browns and even with burgundy! The possibilities are endless and a colored-bootie makes a fun statement anytime you wear them.


A dressy bootie is a shoe that can wear be worn into night, pair with dresses, leather pants/leggings or dressy jeans outfits. A dressy bootie can really be any style heel {stiletto, wedge, block or platform} and height, whatever is most comfortable to you.

I personally love the look of a heel with some fringe, like the Sam Edelman bootie I am wearing here. 

If fringe isn't your thing, there are plenty of other great options out this season. I recommend a dressy black heel as a priority, and then incorporating a taupe or colored heeled bootie if you find yourself dressing up often!

Stay tuned for the Best Tall Boots coming to the blog tomorrow!

Also, I would love to hear about what Fall trends & looks you would like for me to address on the blog in the coming weeks.

I love supporting local businesses and designers, and so I am extra-excited to team up today with Atlanta-based contemporary line CROSBY by Mollie Burch to help launch their gorgeous new Fall Collection!

CROSBY by Mollie Burch is distinguished by custom abstract prints, bold colors and feminine silhouettes. In short, it's a collection of statement-making pieces that stand out in a crowd while keeping classic. It's also a company that seeks to empower women by shining a light on the alarming issue of sex-trafficking. CROSBY by Mollie Burch partners with two non-profits that help give exploited girls and women the support to move forward :: Starfish Project  and Wellspring Living.

I am a huge fan of the clothes and the mission, and had fun styling a few pieces from the newest release.

The first piece I styled is the Allie Tank in Feather Print...hands-down my favorite style and print from the Fall line. I love the shape of this top and cannot get enough of this feather print!! This top looks fantastic layered under a fitted jacket, too, and the swingy shape gives great movement and flattery. 

{See another way I styled this pair of jeans + my top denim picks for Fall on this recent post.}

The second piece I choose to style is the Maggie Top in Foliage Print. I love the easy draped fit of this tunic, of course, the leaf print that looks like Fall, yet can be styled for any season. This is a top that can be dressed up with black or leather pants, like I have styled here, but could also be worn with white jeans, ripped denim or even tucked into a high-waisted skirt.

By the way, if you are on the hunt for a great fitting pair of leather pants, this crazy-flattering pair by Blank NYC is under-$100 and are my absolute favorites! {They also have enough stretch to keep them comfy.}

Since I am a girl that loves the color pink and adores dresses, the Annesley Dress in Mollie Pink spoke to me. I love how this dress looks styled with black accessories for Fall, but it's honestly a great year-round, all-occassion dress! I'll add a cropped leather jacket to it when the weather cools.

Last but not least, I love navy and black paired together for Fall and this CROSBY by Mollie Burch Laura Dress does it SO well! This is a great dress for a Fall/Winter wedding or cocktail event. It's a flattering fit that any age can pull off, and a dress that looks great alone or layered with a fitted jacket. It's also fun dressed down with over-the-knee boots!

Head on over to the CROSBY by Mollie Burch site to shop the entire Fall collection...there are so many goodies I know you will adore! Enjoy 15% off on any purchase today with code HAPPYBIRTHDAY.

On a personal note, my husband is taking me on a surprise birthday trip tomorrow, so I will be off the blog until Monday. Be sure to follow our trip over on Instagram @laurenlefevre and on Snapchat LaurenLefevre. I cannot wait to find out where we are headed!
