Leggings are brilliant replacements for stockings in winter. They keep you warmer yet still maintain a chic stocking vibe. The absolute best way to conceal that you're even wearing leggings is to pair your favorite skirts with knee-high boots. Knee-high boots come in all styles -- from flat and motorcycle to stiletto and platform. No matter what your style preference is, you're sure to find a pair that will flatter any skirt.


Knee-high boots look amazing with minis and leggings. For a fantastic day look, go with a flat boot and pair with a bulky sweater or any length coat. For a chic nighttime look, try a sexy pair of stiletto knee-high boots paired with a fitted black blazer and white turtleneck. Top off with a long gold necklace. Want to tone down that micro sequin mini for day? Try black leggings, flat knee-high boots and an oversized sweater.

Work Wear

Pump up your work wardrobe by wearing a sleek pair of knee-high boots and leggings. Pencil skirts are an office must-have. Once winter comes, female commuters are always looking for ways to stay warm but still chic. Knee-high boots are completely appropriate with a skirt suit and maintain a professional look. Keep your look classic with a buttoned shirt underneath and simple pearls. The best thing -- no one will even know you have on leggings.

Below-the-Knee Skirts

Below-the-knee skirts are the most common length of skirt and look completely chic with knee-high boots. Whether you're going shopping or out for the night, you can wear this length skirt with any knee-high boot. For day, go with a flat or riding boot. At night, try a sexy lace up stiletto -- this will really spice it up. For some added fun, go with a bold colored legging such as red or pink. When you take a seat, the color will pop through on your knees and look adorable.

Maxi Skirts

Always flattering, the maxi skirt looks incredible with knee-high boots and leggings. For maxi skirts that may be a light cotton fabric or a bit see-through, the leggings will keep you toasty warm. Try a pair of more funky knee-high boots, like platforms or motorcycle-style. Maxis look terrific with chunky boots. For an effortless day look, pair this look with a denim jacket and a white T-shirt. Transition into night by adding a fitted black blazer and high platform or stiletto knee-high boots.
