There was a time not so long ago when the It-item of a fashion girl's winter wardrobe was a sleek pair of black over-the-knee boots. They were the hero item of almost every Saturday night outfit, and countless weekday looks consisted of some combination of a sweater, jeans, and said boots.
Recently though, the fashion tides have taken a turn in favor of shorter ankle boot styles, slouch boots, and this season knee-high boots are having a major moment (even Kate Middleton jumped on that train). Rarely have I seen street style photos that include a pair of OTK boots, which led me to believe this style was over.
But just when I thought I could safely say I was past this trend, one glorious pair of boots made me question everything I believed to be true. Ganni's Nadine Boots are the spring 2019 answer to over-the-knee boots—combining the croc-embossed texture trend with a roomier body and wide mouth opening just above the knee. I first noticed the white colorway on Tiffany Hsu's Instagram account, but Ganni just launched a new black-and-brown colorway and now I'm not sure which version I love more. Whether paired with a dress, jeans, or a skirt, this style feels particularly modern and directional.
