Blogger Style: Preppy Dress + OTK Boots with Louella Reese

Over the knee boots are everywhere this season, and for good reason - they'er so flattering and versatile. This fun style can read edgy and trendy or cute and classic depending on how you style it. We're leaning towards the totally timeless option today, so we teamed up with blogger Louella Reese to put together a perfectly preppy OTK boot outfit!

Laura, the blogger behind Louella Reese, lives in Raleigh, NC - so she knows a thing or two about classic southern style. She scooped up our Sheridan dress in Navy/ Ocean Blue Seville and paired it with some brown over the knee boots for a transitional outfit that can be worn now and into the spring.

How to wear over the knee boots with a preppy dress

When pairing over the knee boots with a dress, you have two options: Go short enough to show some skin above the boot or long enough to just cover the tops of your knees. Laura opted for the second option, and we're head over heels for the results. This adorable look is chic and on-trend without trying too hard. Who wouldn't want to look this effortlessly elegant?

When pairing a longer dress with tall boots, Laura suggests looking for a dress with some movement in the skirt - nothing too fitted or stiff. That easy, breezy feeling gives you flattering proportions while keeping the look fresh and relaxed. Dainty, feminine accessories complement the outfit without being overwhelming.
