How do I wear a skirt with boots?

    We've watched boots go from a boys-only shoe to a girls' wardrobe essential. And while we love these sturdy kicks styled with a good ole pair of jeans, we have grown to love them most worn with ultra feminine skirts. Here are three parings you must try!

    Cropped Cowboy Boots + Short Swingy Skirt

    A cut-off, cowboy-inspired boot can look sweet and ironic paired with a little skirt that fits and flares. Be sure to find a boot that hits below the ankle and has a roomy opening to strategically flatter the leg. We love a dusty brown or black boot—reminiscent of the real deal—and a skirt that has enough flounce and femininity to add shape and playfulness to your look.

    Knee-High Boots + A-Line Skirts

    So you've ordered your '70s-inspired boots, seen all over the fall runways, and now you are wondering how to wear them. Our advice? Be directional. Try an A-line skirt that fits to right below the knee, ideally in a denim, plaid tweed, or cord. Throw on a chunky cable knit sweater or cardigan and perhaps some thick tights, and you are straight out of Love Story.

    Pointed Ankle Bootie + Knee-Length Pencil Skirt

    If you don't already own a pointed ankle boot with a serious heel, then drop what you are doing and go buy a pair. Think of this shoe as an edgier version of a heel, but with equal swag and sex appeal. We love this boot paired with an at-the-knee (or right below the knee) pencil skirt that hugs your hips and elongates your legs. The tighter the better!  While you can't strike out with a classic black bootie, take a risk with a print or pattern—like leopard or checkerboard—and watch how it works seamlessly with any skirt you have.
