Raquel Paiva does Over-the-Knee Boots Soho Style

Published 10/30/2015 by

Over-the-knee boots are ruling our lives right now. Because, let’s be honest, they’re basically the fashion equivalent of Drake in a turtleneck – they’re keeping us warm and chic. Raquel Paiva tells us how she took hers to brunch.


“Fall comes with a few amazing things: pumpkin spiced-desserts, stunning foliage, the first sip of a hot drink on a brisk day, orange hues at sunset, and of course—the fashion! This fall, I am obsessed with the color persimmon, suede-everything, turtleneck sweaters, and my beloved over-the-knee boots.

Over-the-knee boots can be easy enough to wear, like I’m doing here. I paired them with a simple sweater and jeans combo, and the boots automatically elevated my look to make it more glam and chic. They can get even more stylish when paired with a dress or skirt. The secret to getting it right with jeans is to choose a style that’s either skinny or super tight like leggings.

These pictures were taken last Sunday, when I went for lunch in Soho with friends. Because it was daytime, I chose to wear a more spontaneous look. But I’m looking forward wearing them to a party with an awesome dress.

These boots are an easy way to look polished while still being comfortable, since you don’t need a heel to look fabulous. They’re a staple.

And they’re also practical because they’re warm, great for the coming winter. And speaking of legs… have you noticed how long my legs look with these boots? They give the impression of a longer and narrower body. I love it! I might just opt to live in them this fall, and probably this winter too.
