It’s that time of year when temperatures are so frigid that warmth and comfort inevitably take priority over your personal style. However, we recently discovered a layering trick that takes both fashion and function into consideration—and it’s super easy to pull off.
As of late, we’ve seen women styling their boots with skirts and dresses that have hemlines extending below the top of their boots. Though we’re used to seeing this particular footwear worn with cropped jeans or miniskirts, this new combination feels like a breath of fresh air. Also, by covering up every sliver of skin, you create a shield of sorts to protect your legs against winter’s chilly elements.
To help illustrate why we think this style tip is so chic, we rounded up a slew of street style images for you to see and replicate. And, for good measure, we threw in a few boots we think you’ll love. See below for the 2017 way to wear your boots!
