Though tall boots immediately conjure up images of fall dressing, designers are embracing below-the-knee silhouettes for spring ’16 as well. From denims to leathers, there’s a variety of boots that can be tailored to one’s personal style.
Below, we suggest five different ways of styling the hottest boots of the moment:
Down To Business
Tall boots are indeed a whole lot of look, but done right it can be worn to the office with ease. Try pairing a sleek, pointy-toe style — like this Balenciaga boot — with a graphic skirt and simple top. Keep the accessories light to avoid the look being too severe.
It doesn’t get more boho than a floral print. Etro’s flat laceup is a refined take on the everlasting trend. We could see it paired with a denim skirt and ’70s-inspired blouse. Keep the bag structured — you want some sort of modernity to tie it together.

On The Town
Beware: The cage boot is not for the timid. Gianvito Rossi’s ultra-vampy lace-up style is a statement on its own, so keep the dress simple. A streamlined slip dress is always a classic. Have fun with the accessories, though, like a pop-art earring or metallic bag.
Equestrian dressing pops up in designer collections every season. For fans of the look, Frye’s leather boot will forever remain a staple in your wardrobe. Pair with riding pants, a crisp shirt, and structured blazer. A fun necklace with horse motif? Why not.
All About Attitude
You can have bad girl attitude — just don’t have bad style to match. Tom Ford’s denim and leather boot is the “it” boot of the season (Kylie Jenner is a fan). Pair with an a-line skirt, rocker vest and graphic bag. Add star stud earrings for rock-star confidence.
