Tall white boots are still a massive trend for 2022 and look so modern and fresh. They’re almost as versatile as black boots as they pretty much go with every color.
To make them look dressier for the evening, wear high heeled versions with a mini dress and glam accessories. They also look right on trend with sweater dresses or jeans for the day.

How to style tall Ugg boots, flat styles and riding boots
If you’re looking for a more comfortable tall boot for running around day to day or a warmer option, Wellies (yes Wellies as seen at Chanel, Chloe and Dior), flatforms, tall Ugg boots or shearling styles are a good bet.
