You simply can't chat about fall style without bringing boots into the conversation. Ankle, thigh-high, or somewhere in between, boots and fall go hand in hand. And while you likely already have an arsenal of classic styles, as autumn approaches, it's time to consider the new and noteworthy trends to try. For Fall/Winter 2019, the fashion crowd is adopting one that might surprise: white knee-high boots. Labor day (and dirty puddles) be damned.
"White is a color we love for winter and recently we have seen more and more stylish women wearing 'winter white'," Paris Texas Founder and Designer Annamaria Brivio shares with TZR. She created a croc-embossed pair for the coming season that is sure to reach cult status in no time.
Initially, tall white boots may evoke a certain nostalgia for the Go-Go look of the '60s, but while these shoes look chic paired with a mini hemline, you can wear them with a whole lot more — including a few fall staples you already own. "I'm totally obsessed with denim so I love wearing my boots with blue jeans," Brivio continues. "We see a lot of women in L.A. doing this with our boots. too. Right now it's very on-trend to wear them with oversize trousers and jeans but a lot of women tend to wear our boots with calf midi skirts and dresses, too."

A mini hemline and tall boots is a failsafe outfit combination for transitioning from summer to fall. Give the look some edge by reaching for a leather dress instead of the floaty styles you've been wearing.
Consider your tall white boots the 2019 equivalent of basic black boots— they're versatile, neutral, and can easily go with everything (including your pops of color and splashy patterns).
All About Neutrals
For an outfit that feels plucked straight from street style, wear your white boots with neutral pieces like a leather mini skirt and crew neck jumper. Layer on a trench coat for structure and accessorize with a neckerchief and architectural gold earrings for a polished finish.
If you're on the hunt for a unique wedding guest look or simply need a new after-hours option, consider a pistachio-colored dress worn with tall white boots; the two together feel bold but not overwhelming.
Relaxed And Polished
Tuck a graphic tee or sweatshirt into a plaid skirt for fall and reach for white boots that extend above your hemline. It's a slightly cooler alternative to a button-down shirt and pencil skirt.
Feeling bold? Great. Wear your blazer as a dress and style it with tall boots. The look is ideal for a party, special dinner, or an evening out with friends.
All White Outfit
Don't feel the need to follow any post-Labor Day dressing rule, just see above. All white is a chic outfit option all year round.
A Study Of Contrasts
If your color palette tends to go in the all-black direction once temperatures drop, consider a pair of tall white boots to break things up a bit while staying true to your minimalist aesthetic.
