If you can find me a more iconic fashion duo than the humble dress-and boot-combo, please do tell. This pairing is so easy to fall back on right now when the seasons have changed and we’re still remembering how to get dressed for autumn. It couldn’t be better for the crazy weather we all seem to be having, with torrential rain one minute and crisp blue sky the next. Sandals are a no-go anymore ( unless you want frozen toes on the way to work), so boots it is. When you’re sweating on the bus home, you’ll be thankful for a floaty dress.
We’ve already spotted some of our favourite influencers wearing excellent dress-and-boot combinations, which inspired us to start the shopping list below. Although you can be pretty safe in the knowledge that most boot styles go with most dresses, these street style looks might just inspire you to leave your comfort zone and try a new pairing this season.
I’m on the lookout for the perfect black chunky pair to go with the minidresses I keep lusting after recently. Midi dresses were made for knee-high boots, and longer maxi styles work excellently with statement ankle boots. Why not throw glittery cowboy boots into the mix like Megan Ellaby?
