When it comes to It shoe silhouettes, ankle boots often reign supreme during fall. But there’s actually another classic shape that may just give your favorite booties a run for their money. Yes, I’m talking about knee-high boots. While they’ve been making the fashion rounds for seasons, this footwear pick is apparently one of the only styles that matter for fall 2020.
Seriously. I haven’t been able to scroll through Instagram or catch a glimpse of a cool celebrity outfit without spotting knee-high boots. And for good reason—they're often the hero piece to the chicest fall looks thanks to their sleek, statement-making nature. Basically, if you haven’t tested these shoes out yet, now is the time.
With that in mind, I curated a range of celeb and fashion-girl outfit inspiration highlighting the freshest knee-high boot silhouettes. Keep scrolling and get a leg-up in the autumn styling department.
