Knee-high boots have officially returned! As have over-the-knee boots, for the record.

Celebrities like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Hailey Bieber, Jisoo, and more have been spotted embracing the trend already.

Many are pairing their boots with shorter hems like mini skirts and mini dresses, while others are opting for midi skirts and longline coats. Styles range from stilettos to western to suede.

2. Clogs

Maybe it’s because I’m in my thirties or maybe it’s because I saw Reese Witherspoon wear them in Your Place or Mine and they looked cute as hell, but I’m finally appreciating the beauty of clogs.

Wooden-sole clogs are the style of the moment but Birkenstocks continue to trend as well.

3. Ballet Flats

By now you’re probably tired of hearing about the return of ballet flats since they’ve literally been *everywhere*. Whether it’s a pair of Mary Janes or a classic round-toe pair with bows, there’s pretty much a style for everyone.

And if you’re not a flats person, take it up a notch with a pair of ballet pumps instead.

4. Chunky Chelsea Boots

Not feeling ballet flats? You might want to invest in a pair of chunky Chelsea boots instead. Easy to pair with either a mini skirt or a pair of jeans, lug sole Chelsea boots are the perfect combination of functional and stylish.

Go with a classic black, neutral, or white shade and you can’t go wrong.
