A celeb-approved guide on incorporating thigh-high boots in your wardrobe this winter

Thigh-high boots might appear intimidating but if you’ve got just the right amount of sass, it’s the one piece you need to invest in this season. Once you get the rules on how to wear it and the accessories he comes with, you can transform from a girl next door into a glam goddess in minutes. As a general rule, say no to plunging necklines and form-fitting dresses with thigh-high boots. And feel free to play with layering, monochromes, and textures. We’ve got you the the trendiest thigh-high boots of the season with celeb-approved looks for inspiration.

The primordial tall boots in pure leather look great and are versatile enough to wear during the day and night. Give an extra lease of life to your staples like biker shorts, A-line skirts , and shift dresses with the fitted leather over-the-knee boots. If you’re wearing them during the day, make sure you team them up with casual pieces for a subtle look.

Gathered slouch Boots

Not everyone’s cup of tea, gathered slouch boots have managed to crawl out of the high school malfunction list into the grown-ups trend list. Pulling these off might be a tough but if done right, it is the most ‘fashionable’ accessory this season. Bring those oversized chunky sweaters and jumpers out of your closet to pair with slouchy thigh-highs for a relaxed look. Team them with your favourite shirt dress or an oversized coat and you are ready to deliver a hit high street number.

Suede boots

The most versatile and popular trend are the suede thigh-highs that never fail to make a head-turning appearance. A classic in every sense of the word, these can be worn with any outfit including denims or little black dresses. Pick heeled versions and pointy toes to add glamour.

Sock Boots

Carried forward from the last year’s top trends, sock boots are still trending this year. With fashion A-listers crushing on second skin jersey stretch boots, this has now become Instagram’s favourite footwear. Our favourite pick is Fendi’s red thigh-high boots that come in plush leather. Pair them with a sweater dress or an oversized jacket/blazer or a date-night mini skirt.

Statement Thigh-high Boots

Want to make statement with shoes? Red soles are not the only way. Pick tall boots in unique, stunning styles – snakeskin pattern, croc emboss, prints, applique, and embellishments, all of which make a statement like no other. It takes courage to show up in a pair of over the knee boots with prints and patterns that are not only bold but bright. Besides uplifting your outfit, they are great for adding texture to your look. A friendly tip? Go minimal with accessories and details on rest of the outfit while sporting this beauty so you balance out the look.

Celeb-approved street style brings a rather fun, reflective boots cameo once in a while. Mix and match them with a 80’s style jumper and a slit skirt for a cool day look or team them up with your satin dress for the night.
