If we’re being honest, one of the best parts about the temperatures dropping is being able to wear all of our favorite fall staples, which includes black knee-high boots. Don’t get us wrong—we’ll always have a place in our hearts for chic ankle boots and, of course, their cool over-the-knee cousin. However, with the rise of ’80s-inspired silhouettes and, perhaps, a fatigue of both the aforementioned styles, the knee-high classic has made its way back into the spotlight, and we’re here for it.
Dressier than the everyday booties while remaining at a height appropriate for the office, the knee-high boots will make any outfit, whether it’s casual or formal, feel more polished. Sport the trend with a chic midi skirt for a cool fall ensemble worthy of an Instagram, or wear it over a pair of jeans for a casual weekend look. If you’re looking for more styling ideas, we’ve put together some of the best from our favorite It girls. Scroll down to see them all.
