For the longest, over-the-knee boots have been in the spotlight. Though I've always wanted to own a good pair of OTK boots of my own, for some reason, it kind of slipped my radar. With the fashion seasons going through some strange times this year, I'm so excited to see some everyday-wearing trends come full circle. I've always been a big fan of knee-high boots. Something about tall boots that aren't too dominating for any outfits yet still serves as a statement just makes a lot more sense for my capsule fall wardrobe.

It just happened that I was in a fisherman village in Kyoto this past week so this outfit was definitely channeling some fisherman style. If you've been following me for a while, then you probably have already seen this pair of color-block pants styled a few different ways. Hopefully, this will inspire you to dig up some of your favorite pieces to refresh with a pair of knee-high boots.

Over The Knee, Over My Head

November 4, 2015


Theory Coat FOREVERVANNYAldo Olilassa Boots FOREVERVANNY

I went through a period of my life when sneakers, jeans and an oversized shirt or sweater would do. But this was way back in middle/high school, when my parents could barely afford rent each month. As a little girl who grew up wearing a different dress everyday before I moved to the States, this American Dream uniform didn’t really bother me since it was something different than I was used to.

The idea of wearing over the knee boots then would have been thrown completely over my head. Before these thigh high and over the knee boots were introduced, the to-go was ankle boots and knee high socks instead.

Maybe it’s because we’re all basically running out of ideas or getting lazier over the years - knee high boots seemed like they would be a more efficient replacement for the two steps process of wearing ankle boots with knee high socks. In reality though, it takes me about 20 more minutes to put on most over the knee boots as it take to do it the older, cheaper way.

Even so, being a part of this over-spoiled generation, I too, ditched the knee high socks with ankle boots thing, and acquainted myself with the update.

Biker Shorts and Suede Knee-High Boots

The comeback of biker shorts was something completely out of hindsight for me. To say it is timely would be a little inappropriate because it's not like we all were looking forward to a 2020 spent mostly indoors and leaving our homes just to throw out the trash or pick up groceries.

Biker shorts took a bit to grow on me especially because it was something I felt too casual to incorporate into a "going-out" outfit. Fast forward to fall and as things are starting to resume here in Tokyo, biker shorts are my go-to for oversized t-shirts and sweaters. Usually, I'd pair them with my usual sneakers, but they are surprisingly chic with a pair of knee-high boots.

Black and Brown

October 25, 2021



If you haven't added a pair of knee-high boots to your fall/winter wardrobe-- what are you waiting for? I'm pretty late to the knee-high boots game myself because I got my first pair only just last year. You might have seen me style a few outfits from summer through fall with my black suede boots, but I'm excited to add these brown croc ones to my collection too. I especially love the versatility of knee-high boots for the fall because you can rock them with midi dresses layered under cozy knits, or even tuck in some trousers for a more utilitarian look. Here I'm just going for a simple black dress and a structured black blazer for some form and topping it off with this brown pair of boots that's the perfect fall statement.

First week into November and I just got around to sharing this mini dress that I picked up over the summer. I've been a big fan of the brand Aje for the longest, and with everything that took place this year, I decided that I would treat myself to a dress that I usually wouldn't spend this much on for my birthday, back in August. In my defense, the dress has pockets. And here I am showing you just two out of the multiple ways that I've worn this dress so far. If you're interested, it also comes in white, and it'll live in your closet for the next 3-5 years.

It might just be human instincts, but everyone seems to start putting away their dresses as soon as the temperature drops below 50 degrees, but for me, dresses are just so fun to style in the Fall and into Winter. On milder days, an oversized sweater over any of your summer dresses can be one of the quickest ways to decide what to wear on mornings when you can't choose between a hoodie with shorts or a loose top with regular pants. One of my go-to is to just throw on a bomber jacket over a mini dress like this with some knee-high boots. The trick is, if it's bulkier on top, keep it chic with sleek shoes, and if it is a dress that has a fuller skirt, then go for chunkier and bolder footwear.

Turtleneck Sweater Vest

October 20, 2020

Not that anyone's going to notice, but this turtleneck sweater vest is literally three of this year's biggest trends meshed in one. Let's break it down, the padded shoulders is one, the mock turtleneck is two, and of course, the sleeveless factor making it a sweater vest is the third. All of a sudden, this 90's trend is making a big comeback this Fall, and possibly for Spring, too. Surely, we are collectively wishing that 2020 was either over or didn't exist at all, but so many trends lately have been showing our yearnings for the good old 90's days again.

While I'm not often one to hop onto seasonal trends, I gravitated towards these sweater vests because of their versatility for layering in the Fall and Winter. I'm already picturing color-blocking them with ribbed knits or long sleeve bodysuits or turtlenecks. A little oversized and they are perfect to go with the new pair of knee-high boots that I've been posting about. I'm also looking forward to even pairing them with something sheer and sparkly underneath to stay cozy and festive for the holidays. I included some other great options for you guys to explore right below.

If I had to sum up this year in a few words, I would say “It was fun while it lasted.” The view, from where I am, looking back, is quite nice.

That’s why I’m getting a little more festive this time and throwing a dress over myself to ring in the new year.

For someone who likes recycling clothes as if I’m on a mission to milk the most out of everything I own - I couldn’t just buy a dress to wear it once. This velvet slip however, had me at pockets!

In New York City, it’s always cold for New Years, and luckily turtlenecks are in this year because I love how they look under a cami silhouette. But just incase it’s a little warmer, I opted for a lace bralette under, a slouchy coat and over the knee boots for a sleek touch.

As the year comes to an end, there’s this feeling of excitement that comes over me. 2015 has been such a great year, and I think it’s the first year where I was able to fulfill some of my resolutions, which I generally forget easily a few days after all of the celebration.

2015 closed a really important chapter of my life. As I turned 22, graduating college, and finding my very first full-time job was two of the top things on my to-do list as they will pave ways into some of the things that I have in mind for 2016.

I was lucky enough to travel to several places this year, Italy was definitely a highlight and I can’t wait to explore the rest of it in the near future. As I get older, the list of things that are important has definitely grown shorter, but traveling has somehow made it’s way up that condensed list of priorities.

For now, 2016 will be a year where I will have the opportunity to start fresh. First up on my list will be to kill all of my student loans, and of course, the second, is to collect more stamps in my Passport.

Were you able to keep some of your resolutions this year? And what are your resolutions for 2016?
