Take it from Our Stylist: 3 Boot & Skirt Pairings to Try

No one can deny that boots are synonymous with fall. So we asked Rue Stylist Caroline M. to pick three of her favorite styles and tell us how to rock each of them with a skirt.

3 Boot & Skirt Pairings to Try

Riding Boots with a Miniskirt
CM: “This is a classic look that can be revamped each season by choosing different shirt and sweater pairings. Incorporating colored or patterned tights adds a bit of texture. If the weather works in your favor, feel free to nix the tights.”

Booties with a Midi Skirt
CM: “A bootie is the best pairing for a mid-calf skirt because it elongates the leg and adds height. Tuck in a crisp oxford shirt buttoned all the way to the top. For a more playful look, wear a long-sleeve crop top or a chunky knit in place of the oxford.”

Moto Boots with a Maxi Dress or Skirt
CM: “Don’t retire your maxi dresses and long skirts just because the summer is over. Try out the punk trend (a favorite of mine right now) and pair the maxi dress with moto boots, a leather jacket, an infinity scarf, and a beanie.”
