Pants or Leggings with your OTK Boots

Quote of the day: “In the last analysis, what we are communicates far more eloquently than anything we say or do.” Stephen Covey

So I hope this quote and our outfits will really give you a second thought about these OTK (over the knee) boots. Even if you don’t wear a ton of dresses or skirts in the winter (or ever), you could still wear these boots with your leggings or jeans.

I know that many women absolutely love their leggings, and are always concerned about the tunics covering their bum. I think basically, you want the tunic to almost be a dress, and then if you’re wearing your OTK boots, you’d have even more coverage. But these boots also work fabulously with tighter jeans, so join us as we give you some ideas.

And welcome Lydia again from I am Chic on the Cheap again as she joins us for the second post showcasing our OTK boots.

Jodie’s (50+) Outfit: Of course if you’re going to wear your OTK boots with jeans, it works way better with skinny jeans.

This pair of jeans is actually jeggings. Do you know that term? Basically they are very skinny jeans because they are leggings in a denim. I purchased these when thrifting because I wasn’t sure I would like the jeggings or the fact that they are distressed. But they have become one of my favorite pair because the distressing is minimal and they are so comfortable.

If you’re not sure of the jegging idea, then try an inexpensive pair, and just wear them like you do your leggings. This pair even has an elastic waistband and this pair is super dark. What I find with jeggings is they are thicker than normal leggings because they are denim.

OTK boots for women 50+

I stole my hubby’s hat for this post, but soon I’ll be showing you one of my own that is this style.

The baker’s hats are showing up everywhere on blogs lately. Not that I’m giving up my fedora anytime soon, but here’s another fun way to cover your head. If you want to make a statement you could always get a leopard one. Or there is a sequined version for the dressier times.

The advantage of these hats, is they don’t bump against the back of the seat when you’re driving. The things I notice…. ha ha!

OTK boots outfit

I tried to keep the accessories a little simpler since I was wearing the hat.

The necklace is very delicate, but adds a little of the blue down the front of my sweater. And the earrings incorporate some more pink to the outfit since it’s the same color as the trim of the sweater.

Both jewelry items are from one of my Rocksbox sets. You can try it out if you’re interested and get your first month free with my code JTouchofstylexoxo.

OTK boots over jeans

Let me tell you a little about the sweater and vest. I knitted the sweater many moons ago. It’s a mohair yarn, and I added the fuzzy trim at the wrists and then around the neck. It is a little scratchy by itself, so I always wear a t-shirt under it.

The vest is a new find from a recent shopping trip. Since we had some Banana Republic rewards to use, and they were having a sale (they always have a sale, if you go into the store), I only had to pay $20 for it. I wasn’t sure about the ties on the sides, but I figured if they bugged me, I could cut them off and sew up the side seams. My hubby thinks it looks like a potholder—what does he know?

Nancy’s (60+) Outfit: I thought Nancy would wear her OTK boots with her navy pair of leggings, but she surprised me by styling them with her jeans.

And her jeans aren’t really skinny ones, so it just goes to show that straight legged jeans can work too.

Women 60+ wearing OTK boots

The silver accessories were chosen so they would stand out perfectly against the turtleneck. Even if you already have many silver necklaces, there are so many fun modern ones if you want a new version. The tassel ones have been huge lately. Or the bib necklaces really make a fabulous statement.

Women over 60 and OTK boots

I talked about the longer cardigans in my fall trends post recently.

Nancy’s cardigan is one I picked up from Charming Charlies when they were having a $10 deal. The nice thing about these longer cardigans is that you could wear them as a coat if it’s not super cold.

The secret would be to layer under the cardigan. Nancy could wear long underwear under the turtleneck, and that would keep her warmer.

OTK boots for casual

If you haven’t notices turtlenecks are being shown quite a bit more lately. I’m sure many of you still have quite a few because for those of us in the cold climates, we need the extra covering.

If you wanted to upgrade your turtlenecks to a cashmere variety. Or if you don’t love the fact that these pieces can come untucked, you might also love the bodysuit type.

Charlotte’s (70+) Outfit: Good for my mom, for showcasing her OTK boots with leggings.

She’s worn these leggings when we tried to get creative with our accessories by styling the accessories in a different way than they were made to be. The leggings have stirrups which my mom always loves because they are easier to keep down when you tuck them into boots.

I have seen more and more of these kind of leggings lately, if you like that idea. There are black ones, faux leather ones, or you could be super fun and try the leopard ones.

Women over 70 wearing OTK boots

The scarf is actually attached to the tunic with buttons. So you can remove it; however, my mom always wears it together. The fun part is the silver flower pin that is hanging from the scarf.

I’m not even sure what these pins/clips are called, so I couldn’t find one like it. However, you could recreate the look by attaching a brooch to the scarf in the same way.  Since the tunic and scarf are both a knit material, the ends stay put nicely when my mom throws them over her shoulder this way.

OTK boots with a tunic

This tunic has been a favorite of my moms because of the color blocking and fun details.

Who doesn’t like sequins on their clothing?? They are a great way to add a little bling to some clothing items, yet it’s not overly decorated. Here’s another version in all black if this appeals to you. Or check out the cutest reindeer one with leopard also.

Leggings with your OTK boots

Another option to add some sequin bling to you outfits, would be to find a scarf that is decorated. There is a small silver version that would dress up many solid colored outfits. Or you could choose an infinity scarf with only a little sequin action. If you didn’t want the sequins to stand out as much, then having them in with a knitted scarf, is also a great way to be subtle.

  • Missy May

    Oh I’m loving Nancy’s cardigan a lot. So good and she looks great! Jodie you look wonderful too. Honestly I love OTK boots with both jeans and leggings. The top just has to be long to cover my behind. Lol!!

    http://missymayification.blogspot.co.uk

  • Jodie, honestly, I usually go with jeans but they have to be almost skinny skinny which means as good as leggings. For me, the best are jeggings but I only have one brown pair which I haven’t had time to try on with on OTK’s yet.

    • That’s one reason I don’t think skinny jeans will be going away any time soon, Terri!! They are so perfect with boots and make it so easy to tuck them in!!
      Can’t wait to see you brown pair soon!!
      XOXO

  • For me it’s always jeans! I love jeans with my OTK boots!

    You all look great in your otk boots. If I were going to wear them I would wear with my leggings/jeggings. I have the tunic your mother has on but mine doesn’t have the scarf attached.

    • That’s so cool you have the same tunic Victoria..my moms scarf has buttons to attach it—

  • I think I’d wear over the knee boots like this with jeans or leggings if I had a pair! It’s a style I don’t have anything similar even though I admire it on others 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far 🙂

  • IF I ever find a pair of OTK boots (haha) this is how I would wear them first. You all look great, but your look is my favorite. That sweater is beautiful and I love the unique vest.

  • Imastounded

    I’m wearing exclusively jeggings and skinny jeans tucked into my non-OTK boots this winter. Guess what: it’s much warmer than wider-leg jeans worn over boots. Plus I’ve been able to get away with wearing socks instead of tights so far. Winter is so long, so I do what I can to avoid unnecessary layers. Topped with a long coat, I’m warm enough for my day-to-day routine. January may be another story! It’s a bear.

    • You are exactly right!!! They are so much warmer and that’s probably why I’ve been loving them so much!!
      I’m so glad that I found them and was open to try them because now I’m hooked!!
      XOXO

  • Judy Gramith

    All of you are really looking great in your outfits. I’d say they’re pretty flawless!!
    Jodie you look SO cute in the hat, and the vest is not only creative but a beautiful color and made from trendy velvet!
    Nancy’s long vest is also a beautiful colorgul print and a great length to show off the boots!
    Charlotte’ s red,black and gray is so versatile and the band of metallic on the back of the boot is too cool! I also love her scarf drawn through the rose scarf loop. Very vintage but also on trend!!

    • I’m so glad I was able to twist both mom’s arms to try this style, Jude!!
      Thanks for all the love for all of us!!
      XOXO

  • A pot holder?! Lol! I could see it after you said it but would never have thought that, its such a cute vest! Your OTK boots looks great on you, you’re right, I should try a pair! I also love Nancys long cardigan, the print is so cute!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    These styles just rock, Jodie! Timeless and sporty chic!

  • I love all 4 styles for the OTK boots! Jodie I am still loving your boots the most! I would definitely wear them the most, the low heel really draws me in!

  • I love your velvet vest, though since you pointed it out, I suppose the bow does feel a little out of place there… but like you said, easily fixed if you don’t want it!

    • I really do love this vest and so far the bows haven’t annoyed me like I thought they would !! But I’m always thinking of how to change things like that!
      Thanks Lydia!!!

  • The hat looks great on you! I love how you all styled the OTK boots!

    I love all 3 looks as the styling is terrific for each one of you. I was wondering what the pin on Charlotte’s scarf is called so thank you Jean Campbell for that information. Several years ago, I did wear jewelry slides with various gold necklaces but those were smaller and not suitable for a scarf.

    • Thanks Rebecca!! I have to admit it’s so nice to have all of you for information because I’m not even sure what my mom calls the slide!!
      XOXO

  • The trinket on Charlotte’s scarf is called a SLIDE. Belk has several. When you search ask for ‘slide pendant’ or ‘fashion jewelry slide.’ I didn’t look for these, I was browsing jewelry and there it was. Then I typed in slide and got footwear.

    Belk’s has some boots at $29.99, too.

    • Seriously—this is the best part of blogging—getting the info that I didn’t know!! I’ll have to ask mom what she calls it—

      • Charlotte Miller

        Jodie-you gave this scarf slide to me several years ago–I think Christmas-and I put it on this tunic–seemed perfect!. Thanks again. mom

  • Ooh you found jeggings that come with an elastic waistband?! I’m going to have to check these out. Target had carried jeggings many moons ago that came with an elastic waistband and I bought 3 pairs of them when they went on sale lol. So all my jeggings look the same! Haha.

    I am loving all the ways you’re styling your OTK boots, ladies. I really want to buy a pair!

    • You know, I don’t think these have an elastic waistband but the label says jeggings!!
      I have to tell you that I’m all about this type of boot now!! They are so perfect for me!!
      Thanks Lindsey!!
      XOXO

  • Such a good point about OTK boots actually providing more coverage. I often feel that way when I pair them with something shorter. Somehow I feel more covered. I like them with leggings and a longer tunic or jeans/jeggins. Such a cute vest Jodie! You all look great.

  • You have convinced me about the OTK boots. I have some coming through the mail as we speak! I kept in mind your advice about keeping the heels low to keep it less va va voom! I love your vest! I was looking for a velvet vest but got distracted by other vests. Ugh, this menopause brain!

    • I can’t wait to see your Julia!! I bet you’re going to love them more than you thought—at least I have!!
      XOXO

  • Karen

    Once again, well done all of you! I love your vest Jodie! Potholder! How funny!! : ) I love jeggings because of how they behave like leggings and are just as comfortable, but they are denim. I am dreading the day these and skinny jeans go out of style. I might have to just be “out” when that time comes because I can’t imagine giving them up. As you show here, they really balance out an outfit and are perfect with the boots. I’d run out and get the boots to recreate this look, and the other day I said I’d probably not. I still might not get any, but I love this look you are wearing here! The sweater is gorgeous, by the way! I’m really into the longer cardigans like Nancy’s. They do work for fall in place of a coat, and I like them with skirts that hit at the same place the cardigan does, and naturally they work with pants. I just love those blue boots! Your mom looks great! The idea of stirrup pants coming back is a positive, isn’t it? They do make keeping things tucked in so much easier! I like how she styled the scarf so you get a fashionable rear view as well as from the front!

    • Thanks for all of the wonderful thoughts Karen!!
      I know this pair of OTK boots isn’t as tall as my other 2 pair so I was thinking they were kinda like baby steps!!
      Maybe that’s the way to start with them?
      XOXO

  • Lord and Taylor started their Black Friday sales today with a one-day sale of Lexie and Abbie boots including 3 over-the knee styles for $29.99. Great buy for those who can’t get enough or want to try a new style.

    I pass on the tall boots. My legs are shorter than most and my waist is long. Sometimes you just know without trying on that it isn’t going to work for an old lady.

    • If I end up buying a pair of these boots, I’m totally blaming you! LOL!!
      What a great deal!!
      XOXO

    • This is how bad I am—

  • Love all of these cozy chic fall looks! I adore all three of these knee boots. I can never get enough suede boots!

      XOXO

  • Jodie, I adore this look on you! I’m inspired!

  • Hey, Jodie! You know from your fashion show post that I LOVE that outfit on you. That BR velvet “potholder” vest (bahahahaha)…is SO pretty. The whole thing works beautifully on you. I doubt it will look as sharp on me, but this is one outfit I will try to duplicate.

    • Of course it will look just as good on you, Em!!!
      And great memory about it!!! I was going to say that this was the outfit I wore before the show, but I had so much else to say about it….but you are amazing in that you remembered that!!
      Thanks Em!! And I totally want to see your version!!

    oooh la la….LOVE!!! Those OTK boots looks fabulous on you all, so chic! And Jodie, the velvet touch….so rich adn pretty. Tell your mom, those red pants and sweater dress are so eye catching..stunners you all are!!

    • Thanks so much Andrea!!! I think both my mom’s are going to like these boots, more than they thought when I twisted their arm to get them…ha ha!!
      XOOX

  • I actually never wear otk boots with pants! Perhaps I should try just to see how it ,,feels,. But then , I also don t have a skinny jeans! Great inspiration post!

    • I can totally related, Nancy. I never wore my first pair of OTK boots with pants. But they are higher too, so I wonder if that makes a difference.
      But Nancy’s jeans are really skinny jeans. They are straight legged jeans, and they still worked….
      XOXO

  • Jodie, you look so adorable in your jeggings and OTK boots! I absolutely love this outfit. That vest is fantastic! And how lovely is your mohair sweater. You all look fabulous in your boots. And you mom’s tunic is brilliant! I have a thing for OTK boots this season and have just added the cutest pair of black floral embroidered ones to my closet. They will be showing up soon on my blog…in a super sassy way!
