This Is Summer's Most Surprising Trend

Let's not kid ourselves—our fashion goals get sacrificed during summer for one crucial objective: to wear the least amount of clothing possible for any given situation. It's hot, and the more you layer on, the more likely you are to overheat, sweat, and feel generally just really uncomfortable.

But for a few brave souls, there's a cool (er, hot) summer trend worth road testing: thigh-high boots. Style stars like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have stepped out in a pair lately, proving you can wear over-the-knee boots during summer (there just may be a little leg sweat involved). From styling them with a slip dress for a night on the town to using them to dress up cutoffs and a tee, these looks will inspire you to give this surprising trend a try.

Read on to see how stars are making thigh-high boots work for summer, and then shop a few of our favorites!
