At this point, I consider it a definite trend: Plenty of celebrities wearing over-the-knee boots have graced social media and magazines. My favorite style inspirations, like Kourtney Kardashian and Hailey Baldwin, are rocking thigh high and OTK boots with shirts that are just long enough to pass for dresses.
I never thought I'd see the day where it would be acceptable for me not to wear pants while others can see me. I'm talking outside of swimsuit season, and aside from laying on my bed after a long day with the door wide open. Being a little on the curvy side, I was initially feeling less than confident to rock this look, but I decided to try it anyway. Life's just too short. One day, I made the decision to brave the cold, cruel streets of New Jersey sans pants, but with increased confidence in myself, thanks to celebs who made the fashion-conscious decision to do the same before me.
Now, OTK boots are my new go to when I feel like being super chic and super sexy at the same time. Better yet, they offer an escape from the restriction of a too-snug jean or legging. If you love the look but need a confidence booster like I did, let these celebrities inspire you to take the plunge and forego the pants — who needs 'em, anyways?
1. Kim Kardashian
When it comes to sexy style, Kim definitely knows her stuff, and is the queen of pushing fashion boundaries.
2. Hailey Baldwin
Hailey Baldwin is my ultimate street style girl crush. She's a pro at the hoodie or T-shirt as dress concept — and of course, she pairs those with exquisite OTK boots.
Tinashe's combination of a graphic T-shirt and OTK boots is easy and sexy at the same time.
4. Kylie Jenner
Like her big sisters, Kylie loves this kind of style aesthetic, which is why she definitely takes the no pants trend to new levels of fierceness.
5. Gigi Hadid
As if I didn't have enough reason to feel inspired by Gigi Hadid in all of her fabulousness, but the way she rocks the no-pant trend gives me serious fashion inspo.
6. Rita Ora
OTK boots and a hoodie is one thing, but throw in a pair of fishnets? Completely obsessed.
With her bold choices in fashion and music, it probably comes as no surprise that Rihanna could inspire you to leave your pants in the closet. She is a bad gal after all.
8. Emily Ratajkowski
Emily Ratajkowski's style is unparalleled, and her ability to rock this look definitely made me feel like I could try it, too.
9. Kourtney Kardashian
I've said it before, and I'll say it again —Kourtney Kardashian is my style muse. I would totally raid her closet, and leave no boot unturned.
Beyonce not only captures my heart with her music, but also with her bold interpretation of the OTK trend.
I absolutely love Ciara's personal style. Dad hats and sexy, scrunchy up OTK boots? Yes please.
These celebs work the OTK boot, long top trend so well, you might question why you ever bought pants in the first place. I know I am.
