Sorry, Ankle Boots—This Trend Is Crushing You Right Now

Ankle boots are an absolute staple, but that doesn’t mean a fresh boot style can’t trot into town turning the head of every fashion girl. This season, classic ankle boots are giving way to boots of a higher-shaft persuasion. Chilly ankles no more; it’s all about an elongated boots silhouette, usually falling somewhere from mid-calf to just short of the knee. And if you’re wondering how to wear tall boots, we’ve pulled inspiration images from just about every type of fashion girl, including, editors, models, influencers, and more.

One of our favorite parts of the tall boots trend is that there is a multitude of styles suited to every fashion inclination. For the trendy girls, there are the cowboy boots and ’80s slouch boots in rotation, and for the more classically inclined, we recommend a wide shaft version in the material du jour: mock crocodile. And before you scroll down, may we squeeze in one last fashion note? Instead of tights try wearing them with a midi dress or skirt. Now, read on and boot up in the style of the season.
