The Boot Trend That Will Elevate Any Winter Outfit

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.
