Kourtney Kardashian Went Pants-less in the Boot Trend That Will Surge in 2023

Is it a shirt? Is it a dress? Maybe she's wearing shorts underneath? Honestly, it doesn't really matter when the entire outfit comes together around a single standout element—the boots. 

Kourtney Kardashian opted for an oversize Balenciaga T-shirt dress paired with knee-high Fidan Novruzova boots on a recent outing with her son, Reign, and husband, Travis Barker. Since the early days of Kardashian's relationship with Barker in 2021, she has embraced an edgier look that mixes romantic pieces with rock-and-roll–influenced accessories, and this laid-back street style look is no exception. 

While imitating any Kardashian-concocted ensemble is not for the faint of heart, these knee-high boots just might be the most versatile trend piece of the season. Plus, you don't have to have supermodel-length legs in order for this style to fit your frame (Kardashian is just 5'1", and the boots hit just below her knees) and look put-together.

Interested in taking the chunky knee-high boot trend for a spin? We've pulled a few favorites (minus the original Novruzovas, which are currently out of stock) to shop below.

Remember: Pants are always optional.
