Yes, it’s Saturday, but this doesn’t mean you should Netflix and Chill watching Sex and the City today. Today it’s time for Checks in the City. And over the knee boots. Yes, it’s the high time for OTK boots again.
Although we wear over the knee boots all year long (remember my How to wear OTK boots in the spring guide from here?), now it’s undoubtedly their moment. And it’s time for me to share some tips on how to wear over the knee boots this season.
But before we head on to the EDIT – your fashion cheat sheet with #5 different ways to wear OTK boots this fall, and before we check the checks in the city, a few words about how to shop for over the knee boots.
HOW TO BUY THE OTK BOOTS
Ps. A little tip on how to buy the best over the knee boots. The ones you can actually walk in. And, Macy hun, I can assure you, girls in these OTK boots don’t suffer. Because these boots are made for walking. Tested in Paris. Remember I walked 15 km wearing my OTK boots last September during the fashion week.
So how to buy the right OTK boots then? Especially if you are buying them online (ps. find my tips on how to save some money on your online purchases over here).

#1 BEST OTK BOOTS ARE MADE OF SUEDE
Surely we love the Balenciaga’s stretch-jersey thigh boots (especially the ones from my shopping list), but there is no such feeling as when you wear suede (the real suede) over the knee boots. Suede otk boots will keep your legs warm in the winter and just right in the summer. I showed you can wear the OTK boots in the summer too (here). Moreover, they are not that tight that your legs would start to hurt you when they are swollen.
Oh, another tip. You can wear your suede over the knee boots as slouchy boots too. Great, right? There’s no need to buy the slouch boots when you can wear your otk boots in two different ways. I tried the slouch trend with my over the knee boots over here.
#2 NO ZIPPER PLEASE
You don’t want to get blisters, do you? The best over the knee boots should tie at the top. And no, even if they untie, they won’t slip down. Well, at least mine don’t.
SEX AND THE CITY? NO, IT’S CHECKS IN THE CITY
I’m pretty sure you can shout out these season’s most fashionable pattern in the middle of your sleep. Especially if you keep my Autumn / Winter 2017/18 Fashion Report (from this blog post here) somewhere close. Yes, the it pattern of the season are the checks.
Even though checks are just stripes on stripes, I’m quite glad we finally left the stripe trend behind. Well, as we can even say so. Anyway, this time it’s all about checks. And oversized boyfriend blazers.
THE OVERSIZED CHECKED BOYFRIEND BLAZER AND OTK BOOTS
So simple but so chic. Surely you had noticed my love for this oversized checked boyfriend blazer when you scrolled down through my Instagram feed. I wear it with everything this fall. From the office to the street and from street to the club. And this look is definitely the one you could wear from street to the club.
And the best thing about this outfit? You only need two minutes to get dressed. Perfect outfit to wear when you are already late for a date with your girl friends, right? See? I told you. Checks and the city.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
As said, I have been wearing this wool checked oversized boyfriend blazer from Erika Cavallini with everything this season. Remeber, the last time I wore it as a part of the business suit in the blog post about what to wear to a job interview this fall (over here). You can get this checked blazer over here. Ps. Better hurry up as it’s flying from the store hangers faster you can say wool checked oversized boyfriend blazer.
UNDER THE BLAZER
You didn’t think I’m wearing nothing but the underwear under this blazer, did you? Well, technically I am. Actually, I decided to pull off another fashion trend in this look. The boudoir trend. This micro trend has been here for a while now, and we still haven’t got enough of it. Besides, the slip dress seems just perfect for a girls night out. Although I’m wearing my silky shorts and matching silky top this time. Yes, the one I wore over here.
THE PURCHASE OF THE YEAR: OTK BOOTS
Finally, my best purchase ever, the OTK Boots. Do I even need to say where my over the knee boots are from? Probably not, as you have seen me wearing this boots number of times (last here and here). But I will say it anyway. They are from Stuart Weitzman, and you can get them here or here but in slightly different color.
Ps. be sure to browse through the gallery below to find all the over the knee boots from Stuart Weitzman in the shade I’m wearing. By the way, this is a colour of over the knee boots you can wear all year long.
