Easy Way To Wear Winter White Denim + How To Keep OTK Boots Up


SWEATER: BP (also love THIS & THIS- size up in these to get tunic fit!) | DENIM: J. Brand (my favorites) | BOOTS: Stuart Weitzman (on sale!!) (dupes HERE & HERE) | HAT: Topshop (similar HERE, I love THIS chunky knitted slouchy one!)  | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton (Neverfull GM) [buy it pre-loved HERE] | SUNGLASSES: Gucci | LIPSTICK: “Spoiler Alert” | BELT: Gucci

I love love my Stuart Weitzman OTK boots SO much – I have them in black and also cream and I have worn them for the past several winters. They hold up so well and I don’t really do anything special to care for them. However, the past two falls/winters there have been SO many great dupes for them — they are a fraction of the price, too! If I didn’t already have mine, I’d opt for the dupe version I think. The only downside to the more affordable ones is that they don’t stay tight at the top. I get asked SO much how I keep mine up and it is mainly because the SWs tie & just have more structure. But, I have good news! I just saw THESE online and they are made to keep your boots tight at the top! I’ve never used them so I can’t tell you much – all I know is that it is genius. It is kind of like a belt for the interior of your boots. 🙂

I’ve worn this tunic so much this past fall/winter. I added a video to my IG story all about it in early December and I got so many questions regarding it. I always size up in sweaters just so they are little longer and looser. I feel as if that gives you a chance to pair them with leggings. 🙂 The similar versions I linked are wonderful too! I have THIS one in a few colors – I wear it in a medium and LOVE it. It is SO soft and I always get so many compliments on it.

Also, I get asked about Gucci belt sizing SO frequently. When I went into the Gucci store the sales associate asked me what jean size I was and I told her 27. She said “okay that is good because we have a 90 in stock!”. I do like the 90 but I wish I had an 85.  Honestly, I’m not sure if that was correct because many people who wear 27 in jeans wear 80 & 85. I got my mom one for Christmas and she is a 27 and the 80 fit her perfectly. If all sizes were in stock and I had all the options to pick from – I’d like the 85. One thing to consider is where you wear your jeans – as in do you like high waisted or lower waisted. I wear both and I notice in my high waisted denim the belt is way too big.
