3. Sweaters and Plaid Shirts

A quarter zip sweater and a plaid shirt either worn alone or together are both a must have for fall. Every girl loves a guy in plaid, so you might as well buy every plaid shirt you see. Kidding, but really, if you’re looking for the perfect outfit for date night, then grab yourself a plaid shirt and/or a quarter zip sweater.

How to Wear Over the Knee Boots

Over the knee boots are the must have shoe for this season!

From the runway to your news feed, thigh high boots are having a major style moment. These chic boots are not solely reserved for model-types; anyone can pull this look off.

 See how we’re styling these glam shoes for fall:

If you’re feeling uneasy about styling your over the knee boots, keep it simple! Pair flat black OTK boots with a cozy off shoulder sweater, one of our Wishlist lace bralettes, and basic skinny jeans. Add a hint of color to your lips to polish everything off. This look is a no-brainer but still looks like it came straight from Pinterest.

Flat thigh high boots also look great when worn with a cozy fringe poncho! Try this Love Stitch poncho, which is available in multiple color options. The neutral taupe coloring of this pair will allow for endless styling options, no matter the season!

over the knee heeled boots

Over the knee heeled boots are another chic option to try! Make a statement and wear a trendy lace up dress, floppy hat, and sparkly Kendra Scott earrings with your heeled boots. As the weather gets cooler, layer a trench coat over your dress for a sophisticated and stylish outfit.
