The first rule, and it’s a truly glorious one, is that, nowadays as with much of fashion, there really are no rules! Gone are the days of strict dogma around what you can and can’t pair and we’ve moved much more to an age of allowing you to be you! We can now much more wear what we want with what we want and embrace our own sense of style.
And in this mould, boots are an absolutely timeless wardrobe investment for year round dressing to be paired with all sorts of outfits for all sorts of occasions.
That being said, we’d generally suggest that, if you’re pairing boots with a dress, opaque tights, plain or ribbed, give a flattering look. Or, depending on the outfit you’re matching to, a patterned tight could complete the look. Summertime festival? Ditch the tights altogether and show off your legs!
Patterns or block colours can look amazing with boots and we are very lucky right now in that prints and florals are very on trend, so don’t be afraid to mix it up. You can be confident that you’ll be dressing in style, whatever your choice.
As well as making your dress the highlight, don’t be frightened to make your boots the highlight, with boldly coloured boots like Bayeux, Crawley or Taipei.
