After all, as long as you protect them from rain and snow, high-coverage, high-fashion shoes make a great addition to any seasonal capsule wardrobe.
If knee-high boots are high on your shopping list, step into the cold in style with these eight on-trend designs.

For a classic leather riding boot
Add a preppy touch to your fall and winter wardrobe with equestrian style boots.

Pair the boots with a dress and delicate jewels for an instantly polished ensemble.

For a return to disco style
Do you like retro fashion? Go-go boots could be your new go-to style. Steve Madden’s Phoenix boots bring a modern twist and throwback vibe to the retro look. With a chunky 4 inch heel and platform, the Phoenix boot is equal parts go-go and rocker. One reviewer raves about their “perfect” fit, adding that they “have a good amount of stretch in the fabric so the widest part of my foot can slide in.” Buy them in black in women’s sizes 5-11.

For luxurious lug-sole style
Still looking for your shoe sole, so to speak? Try a knee-high boot with a lug sole. The design, which is defined by its chunky, utilitarian rubber sole, is on trend for both loafers and boots. Shop styles like the Aldo Gworelle boot, which features a chunky sole that means business. It is available in white and black in women’s sizes 5 to 11.

For a pair of haute couture thigh-high boots
If you’re looking for a trendy going-out shoe, it might be time to try some over-the-knee boots. Besides making a bold style statement, the high fashion style is a great way to keep your legs warm (or at least warmer) if you want to opt for a mini dress or a skirt during the colder seasons. Try the Kelly and Katie Jali thigh high boots for a classic design with a chunky heel. Buy them in women’s shoe sizes 5 to 12.

For something on the nervous side
Knee-high boots don’t just need to be prepped and polished. With the 1B60 Virginia Leather Knee High Boots, the famous Dr. Martens combat boot reaches stylish new heights. Our tester found the classic 1460 Virginia boot comfortable, and reviewers are also impressed with the taller version. “The boots are great, I was worried about the break-in period that doctors normally have to go through, but these boots had none,” wrote one reviewer. “A pleasant surprise!”

For something in snakeskin
Add some shine with a pair of snakeskin shoes. The Maryana Block Pointed Toe knee high boot from Dolce Vita is available in brown, white, black and snake print in women’s sizes 5-12. “They’re very comfortable and I can walk around in them for over 4 hours without getting tired,” raves one reviewer. “They also have a nice sturdy feel…they look like luxury shoes.”

For a pair of slip-on boots
While Timberland is known for its durable work boots, the brand also offers fashion-forward footwear that works with a variety of outfits. For a boot that’s easy to slip on and off, consider the company’s Cortina Valley Tall Boots. The 14.5 inch tall leather boots feature a rubber outsole and elastic gore inserts. Buy them in brown and black in women’s sizes 5.5 to 11.

For rainy days
Stay prepared and stylish, even when the weather isn’t ideal. A classic for stormy days, the Hunter Original Back Adjustable boots are available in women’s sizes 5-11 and can be adjusted to better fit the calf. “I wore them in Boston in early March with woolen socks and my feet stayed warm,” writes one reviewer. “I now use them in wet Mississippi. Love the versatility!”
