As you look to refresh your wardrobe with the trendiest styles, celebrities are typically the go-to for setting fashion and beauty trends. While platform boots have been the “it” shoe to own, another timeless look has resurfaced as the most stylish shoe style to pair with your day and night looks: knee-high boots. Just look at Taylor Swift’s Reformation boots, Kelly Clarkson’s Frankie4 picks and even Nicki Minaj’s fuzzy hot pink boots for proof.
Nostalgic trends have been having a major comeback from jelly shoes reminiscent of the ’80s as well as belly chains that dominated the ’90s. Knee-high boots are just another look that you can most likely find in your closet or you can update your collection with a modernized version similar to what Dua Lipa, Tate McRae, Gwen Stefani and more artists have been incorporating into their street style.
Some of the best knee-high boots to add to your rotation fall under a few categories that the stars have deemed the most chic styles to show off including platform boots, fold over boots, silver metallic boots, cowboy boots and more. What’s even better, is the look is versatile enough to pair with casual outfits and going out ‘fits (including your New Year’s Eve dress and band T-shirts).
To help inspire you, we put together a few of the most popular knee-high boots to grow your collection and keep you on trend this season. No matter what your budget or aesthetic is, keep reading to shop our picks below.
