The most timeless tall boots go just to the knee. There’s almost no wrong way to wear them: they’re perfect with skinny jeans and an oversize sweater or even paired with a silky top, tights and a flippy little mini skirt. While we always love an equestrian-style boot (our favorites being from Tod’s and Gucci, naturally), we also love the serious sex appeal of a heeled boot in leather or suede.
Maroon suede boots (like these from Brian Atwood) are a stand-out choice to pair with a simple black ensemble. The hint of color adds just enough interest. We also love the appeal of Tod’s heeled black suede boots for pairing with our more colorful fall pieces.
Whether you need a stacked heel, buckle details or the luxe look of suede, put knee-high boots at the top of your shopping list this winter.
