So this weekend I came across an amazing fashion blog that showcased my favorite fall fashion trend: over-the-knee boots! The fashion blogger put together a selection of boots that she likes (below), giving me the idea to put together my own collection of my favorite over-the-knee boot fashion moments over the last few years.

Over-the-knee boots are EASILY my favorite fall fashion trend! I have loved the high fashion trend since early 2009 when Kim Kardashian and JLo took the it mainstream. I admit, it wasn’t the greatest moment for over-the-knee boots style-wise but it did bring the prices down significantly, which made them more easily accessible to those of us who can’t spend $2,500 on boots. It’s definitely thanks to these celebrities, among others, that you can find OTK boots today for as little as $150.
In recent years (and thankfully so), the trend has morphed from the pleathery, chunky heeled 2010 version (seen above) into, more often than not, a suede, moderate heeled version. In 2015, designers, models, and celebrities are generally seen wearing OTK boots with with more, rather than less clothes. This has made a huge difference in making OTK boots a wearable daytime trend instead of catering to the “stripper” or “hooker” appeal–not my terms, but you get the idea.
