Over-the-knee boots aka Thigh High boots have been a sexy winter staple since the 60’s, the decade that also welcomed mini skirts with open arms. In recent years, thigh high boots have made a permanent mark in high fashion and street style. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have pioneered the boots resurgence, and labels like Balenciaga and Off-White have introduced new versions of the classic fit. (Ex. Virgil Abloh’s “For Walking” Boot)

 

With all of the versions of over-the-knee boots, wondering how to add them to your wardrobe can seem overwhelming. But no worries, we’ve got you covered.  Whether your style is chic, edgy, posh, or statement based, there’s a thigh high boot made especially for you.

 

Sleek and Chic 


The key to chic style is looking effortless. Consider mixing feminine and androgynous silhouettes and choosing classic prints, like stripes.

Tuck in a sleek blouse with high waist pants, and pair with a low heeled boot for a “I Woke Up Like This” vibe or pair an over sized blazer with a skater dress to channel the Parisian fashionista inside.
