5 Trendy Ways to Style Knee-High Boots

Long gone are the days of over-the-knee boots. Sorry Ariana Grande, but that was so last year.

This year, fashion is taking a turn and honing in on knee-high boots. OTK boots are a bit too provocative for us, so we're over-the-moon to start wearing knee-highs. These boots can be worn year-round, as they're perfect in cold weather situations (with jeans and a coat) or when it's warmer outside (with a dress or a skirt). If you're excited as we are to start wearing this trend, you might be curious how to wear them best.

Keep reading for the five trendy ways to style knee-high boots:


1. With a Blazer Dress

If you've got your hands on a perfectly tailored blazer dress, all you need are some knee-highs. It sounds simple enough, but once you see how in-charge you look, you'll want to strut down the street so everyone can see your trendy vibe. The key here is to do contrasting colors—for example, if you're wearing a white dress, opt for shoes like snakeskin!

2. With Tucked-In Jeans and a Cozy Jacket

If you're looking to achieve a warm and chic 'fit, put on your fave pair of skinnies and tuck them into your knee-highs. Not only will your shoes give the outfit an extra boost of pizazz, but it will also keep your feet warm! To complete your look, grab your coziest heavy-duty jacket for a snow-bunny vibe.

3. With Ultra-Cropped Trousers and a Tee

Whether you call them gauchos, capris or something else all together, they're making a comeback. Show off just how knowledgeable about fashion you are and pair it with another trend—some cute knee-highs! It's definitely an unexpected style choice, but that's exactly why we love it. Tuck in a fitted tee to complete your ensemble.


4. With a Sweater Dress

We live for a good sweater dress—especially when it's crisp outside. Our fave sweater dresses have a turtle-neckline and rest a few inches above the knee. When worn with knee-high boots, only the teensiest part of your legs are bare, making it the perfect mixture of both cuteness and coziness.
