Yes, You Can Wear Those Awesome Over-the-Knee Boots Now. Here's How
Getting dressed this time of year can be a total thrill or incredibly awkward, depending on the forecast that morning. Here to save you? Over-the-knee boots. Other than praying the temperature stays where you want it to, this is the styling trick you can use to play it safe without missing out on the fun of wearing new fall 2016 trends. Worn your sweet summer dresses, a pair of up-to-there boots will give you a little more coverage without drowning you in fabric and totally refresh your style for fall.
We love soft shades or gray and taupe for this purpose. These shoes are a super-sexy look, and strong black and brown styles can be a little much if you're just running errands around town. Softer hues tone down the vibe just enough. What's more, paler colors also feel a little more at home with summer's cheery prints, making the pairing feel effortless and cohesive. Just look to Gigi Hadid, Nicole Trunfio, and Olivia Munn, above, for proof of that.
