5 Ways to Wear Thigh-High Boots This Fall

Fall is officially the season of boots, and there’s no better way to jump on the trend than with a crop of new statement styles. Designers embraced thigh-high silhouettes this season and amplified them even further, incorporating bold treatments such as mirrored metallics and fringed suedes. Get ready to turn heads.

A number of celebs have already started wearing the trend. We’ve spotted Rihanna in the Manolo Blahnik x Vetements boots, Cara Delevingne in a classic Christian Louboutin style and Bella Hadid in Stuart Weitzman.

Below are five different ways to wear thigh-high boots.

Colored Suede
Go for bold with a colored suede thigh-high boot from Valentino. To make it less flashy, pair it with grungier streetwear pieces such as a graphic tee and sharp black skirt.

Mirrored Metallic
Balenciaga’s mirrored thigh-high is one of the buzziest styles of the season. Keep the rest of the look simple with a black plaid dress, denim jacket and subtle jewelry.
