Versatile Knee-High Boots

Knee-high boots are no longer for just the colder months, but rather a year-round trend. They can dress up denim jeans, give a boho twist to a flirty dress or skirt, or add an equestrian flair to a pair of simple leggings. Take a look through the following pictures of knee-high boots for ideas on how to wear this wardrobe staple.

Colorful Knee-High Boots

Perhaps one of the most fun things about knee-high boots is how easy it is to make a statement. Their height alone draws the eyes down, but when you add an unexpected color, the impact is that much greater. Show them off with a short skirt or tucked-in skinny jeans, or tone them down with a maxi or midi skirt for a slightly western feel.

 Equestrian Boots

Equestrian Boots

A classic leather equestrian boot is a wise investment that you will be able to enjoy wearing year after year. For a timeless pair, keep the heel less than two inches and opt for a toe that is just slightly rounded. Toss them on over everything from leggings to jeans and add a blazer for a preppy look. If you want a pair that is just as classic but has a little more of a style element, opt for equestrian boots that go slightly over the knee and have subtle details like laces or side straps.

Elegant Boots

Tan Boots

There's more to life than black boots. Case in point is a sleek pair of tan boots that will surprisingly go with almost everything in your wardrobe. Keep your legs bare to give your legs a lengthened effect and add a same-hued trench to keep it elegant and cohesive.

Skinny Jeans With Tall Boots

Ever have those days where putting together an outfit feels like the world's biggest chore? If you have a good pair of tall boots, you can kiss those days goodbye! Slip into your favorite skinnies, strap on your boots, and you're already halfway there! Add your favorite sweater or a simple tee and a blazer and you've got a look that you can wear virtually anywhere.

Funky Fringe

Fringe is no longer a passing trend. These days it's a style staple and add a funky yet elegant flavor to your look. Let your boots take center stage by keeping the rest of your outfit understated and grounded in neutrals.

Wide Top Boots

Wide top boots go amazingly well with feminine skirts and skinny pants. They give an air of coutryside romance when worn with a flirty, ruffled dress. When paired with skinny jeans, they can give the illusion of a slimmer leg.

Tall Boots

Layering With Tall Boots

Boots are one of the best shoe options for layering - for a look that's just as crisp as the weather, try a pair of knee-high socks that peek out the top of your favorite boots. This might be one of the most ideal ways of wearing your shorter skirts a little further into the colder months of the season.

Wedge Boots

Wedge boots are a great alternative to a flat or siletto heel. They give the height of a stiletto, but with a stability that is closer to a flat. They also go great with a range of outfit ideas - from tights and skirts to jeans - and if the shaft is narrow enough, they can also look fantastic under a pair of flared trousers. Just make sure to go for the right hemline if you choose to wear them with trousers. A pant length that skims the floor when wearing them or that hits you at your natural ankle for a more flooded look are both ideal.

Zip It

If you love the look of a narrower shaft, opt for a pair of boots with either a little stretch or a zipper. Equally chic, you can slip these on in a matter of seconds and the slim shaft is incredibly flattering for skirts or dresses.

With so many options, you'll easily be able to find a pair of tall boots that can become your signature wardrobe staple. Whether you prefer low heels, sexy stilettos, or a trendy pair of boots with fun details, there are plenty of knee-high options that will amp up your entire closet, no matter what season it is.
