If fashion people are wearing boots right now, there’s a high likelihood that they’re donning sleek knee-high styles. Tall boots have been on the menu for a few seasons now, but 2022 is solidifying them as a footwear staple. As with any item that manages to remain popular year after year, how fashion people are wearing boots has evolved. While knee-high boots with a miniskirt was the go-to combination last fall, the boot outfits I’ve spotted recently are getting less skin baring but—it should be said—no less cool.
Yep, longer skirts are now the default option among the style set when they’re wearing knee-high boots. Personally, I’ve been loving this combination all fall, and I know I’m not alone. Bella Hadid also stepped out in a similar look during fashion week, and I’ve spotted countless people on my social media feeds doing the same. We called out maxi and knee-length skirts as big runway trends this year, and although the hemlines can be tricky to approach, tall boots make them refreshingly approachable.
Below, see the midi-skirt outfits that everyone in fashion is wearing with fall’s number one boot trend right now, and re-create the look with our shopping picks.
