There are some trends that I never get into because I either hate them or assume they’ll look like garbage on me. Crop tops, for example. Unless I’m on the beach, my stomach doesn’t need any exposure. Chokers, no thanks. I assumed over the knee boots would be the same, but then I proved myself wrong.

I love the look of OTK boots on everyone around me, but I assumed you had to be curve-free to look good in them. I was worried they would visually cut off my leg and look my hips look a mile wide. That’s not to say I am uncomfortable in my body, it’s just that I’m aware some styles work better for other figures than others. Self awareness, y’all.
So here I was, assuming I’d never wear OTK boots but lusting after every pair I saw on Instagram. So while I was in TJMaxx right before the new year, I tried on a Franco Sarto pair I saw on the shelves. I thought about it, passed them up, thought about it all week and then went back to make the purchase. Boy am I glad I did. My pair are so comfortable, go with everything and have gotten me tons of comments. When it comes to shoes, that’s all you can ask for.
I personally choose to style my OTK boots with a more casual outfit so I don’t feel too overly dressed, but I am going to try them with a dress or skirt/top sometime soon.
