Women’s knee high boots are back this season and it’s one of my favourite footwear trends. I love this season, and have been wearing black knee high boots, ankle boots, over the knee, lace up boots and thigh high boots for past few years.
I feel like every woman needs to own at least 3 pairs; snake skin printed boots, flats for running around every day, and a pair of black stilettos for weekends, date nights and for more feminine look. Recently, I found out stylish bunch of boots from London Rag which felt worth every deal, and I am excited to let everyone know about it!
Knee high boots have taken over from ankle styles for 2021. Ankle boots will always be wardrobe chief and aren’t out, the shoe du jour is the knee high or mid-calf boot. The mid-calf boots are not easy to pull off, if you’re more athletic, but knee-highs are always sexy. I have a pair of stiletto knee high boots are something I look forward to pull out of storage every Fall, that have been on repeat for about 5 years now!
Knee high boots aren’t something you should have problem investing in as you get so much out of them. I like the colour black, it goes with everything. You can go crazy with all options available out there. Flat knee high, neutral, colourful, metalulc, chunky, coned and stiletto high heel. I’m absolutely loving all of them. Especially lug soles are everyone`s favourites in 2021. Personally I love the classic black vegan leather laced up boots for running around every day and chunky soles give an edgy feel to your mini dresses.
Trending around the millennials is the stiletto heel black knee high boot but I’m also loving the white thigh high long PU leather boots trending right now on Instagram. Also loving the vibe of the thigh high long boots with clear block heels, and the pointed toe seems to add some spark to the mood.

Styulng Knee Highs: The Dos and the Don’ts
Skinny jeans are a go-to
The tight style of skinny jeans makes them perfect for wearing under knee high boots. Suede, patent, riding, heeled or slouchy boots can all be worn with jeans. Match with a plain tee or blouse, with a jacket or cardigan over the top.
Heeled boots are a great choice for social occasions, and you can opt for snakeskin or a bright colour if you want to stand out.
One thing to keep in mind here is to not wear tops that go past your hips. This can give off the illusion of your body being disproportioned.

Knee high boots can be styled with range of outfits like; short, knee length or with midi skirts and dresses. Floral skirts look fantastic with knee high boots, a basic tee and leather jacket too. It gives your outfit a blend of feminine and ultramodern touch and the boots help take your favourite apparel pieces through every season. During the colder months you can wear leggings or pair of tights under your boots.
How not to wear knee high boots?
While there are numerous ways to wear knee high boots, there are some outfits that you should select for another type of footwear instead.
- Knee high boots fit well over skinny jeans, but not so much over pant or straight legged mid-high jeans that don’t hug your skin. You can try to wear your pants over your boots, but this often means seeing the line of the top of your boots through the material.
- Maxi skirts. Styling knee high boots with shorter skirts often goes well, but matching with a maxi skirt is a fashion NO NO. Not only it’s absurd to have those gorgeous boots covered up, but it can look an oddball with the contrasting womanish flow of the skirt.
