Whether Michelle Obama’s glittery Balenciaga thigh-high boots inspired you to get a pair of your own or not, we’d say the silhouette is a must-have either way.
Thigh-highs can be the perfect complement to a minidress or oversized sweatshirt — just ask Ariana Grande or Hailey Baldwin. And the style can easily work with jeans, leggings or shorts.
