Thigh-high boots have come a long way since then and, thankfully, a lot of the negative connotations have gone out the window (as much as we love the movie, we all know Vivian Ward's profession!). These days, this high boot comes in so many variations, they can be worn to the office and, rightfully so, for a night out.

Whether your style is boho, classic, trendy, western, or edgy, there's a boot to suit your aesthetic. For a fresh look, try pairing these with a sheer tunic (with a tank tucked in underneath) that hits the thigh and jeans. The look plays with scale in way that is super now and isn't overwhelming.
You can also try a dress but don't feel the need to take it to the short spectrum. Just because the boot ends at the thigh, doesn't mean you have to flash skin at the end of your skirt. A knee-length with thigh-highs look like cool legwear (think: the fall 2017 Balenciaga runway show).
