15 Jan Plaid Blazer + Wearing Over the Knee Boots Over 40
How was everyone’s weekend? It has been bitter cold here in Charlotte, NC and Jess doesn’t do cold too well. However, being that I seem warm all of the time now ( midlife menopause) I told my hubby, where is the cold weather? So, I experienced the very cold in Harleysville, PA ( under 20 degrees) and i will take the “Southern Cold” instead! So, what is one to do besides cozy up near the fireplace and snuggle with the puppies? Wear layers! Today I am sharing a layered look in one of my favorite plaid Anthropologie blazers, jeans and OTK boots. I plan on writing a post on the importance of a investing in a good blazer, but today, I am talking about Over the knee boots.
I received these OTK boots last year from Santa, as I love the style, the 2.5 inch block heel was do-able and the rust suede would go with much in my closet. Some ladies have expressed the fact that they think one must be tall to wear OTK boots and it really is about proportion. I am 5 foot 9, but I believe if you want to wear them, you should! 😉 They have been a popular boot style each year, with more colors and styles available.
I find wearing a low block heel to be very comfortable and giving some length to the leg. Wearing a stilleto OTK boot can look a little, “Pretty Woman’ or “street lady’, so perhaps choose a wedge or block heel, which are on trend as well, so more styles are available.
Another thing to remember when wearing an OTK boot, is the style. Think of a bit of a heel for height, but wear with a pair of leather leggings and long sweater and you have a chic look! I love a white pair of jeans, OTK boots and a neutral sweater for a pretty Fall-Winter look wearing white.
Try wearing OTK boots with a long duster and blouse. The long cardigan will give additional length to your look with the OTK boots.
Flat Over the Knee boot-
There are so many choices of this style of boot now, if you are interested in trying them and am not sure about a heel, there are lots of choices for a flat over the knee boot style. Try pairing them with a blazer and jeans for a put together look.

I love to wear them with sweater dresses, which looks great on woman of any age, and is comfortable with a touch of sexiness. Want to wear a mini dress? Tights with a pair of OTK boots makes for a fun, feminine look. These pair are a pair of Vera Wang I bought and are flat OTK boots.
Here, I am wearing one of my favorite rust, navy, camel plaid ruffle blazer I bought on Poshmark from Anthropologie. Paring it with a rust cami, dark denim and my OTK, I added my cognac Rebecca Minkoff bag for a rich compliment.
I am always one who believes woman can wear what they love wearing, no matter the age. It really is a matter of feeling confident, no matter what you are wearing. If you are looking for a pair of these boots, it is the end of the season and the time to buy a pair. I have included some affiliate links for you, if you choose to do so!
Have you taken to the Over the Knee boot trend yet?
