Colder temperatures normally mean more layers and an endless rotation of pants, but just because it’s chilly doesn’t mean you have to give up on skirts and dresses. Celebrities have found the perfect solution to making the most of high hemlines: thigh-high boots.
Michelle Obama dropped jaws (and nearly broke the internet) when she uncharacteristically wore a pair of glittery sequined Balenciaga thigh-high boots on the final stop of her “Becoming” book tour — a discussion with Sarah Jessica Parker — at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., in December.
Olivia Culpo pulled off the no-pants look in Los Angeles with an oversized Givenchy sweatshirt and over-the-knee red boots. Matched with a color-coordinated bag and a beanie on top, Culpo proved that even L.A. requires proper cold-weather attire.
Supermodel and the recipient of this year’s FN Style Influencer Award chose the trend for her FNAA red carpet look in New York in December. Her boots were from Fendi and balanced out her sparkling Saint Laurent shorts.
