What to wear with short skirts & boots

Tall boots and short skirts are a classic combination. The key to looking fashion-forward in boots and a short skirt is to choose the rest of your outfit carefully, so that you don't look too sexy or suggestive.

A good fashion rule of thumb is to choose one area of skin to show off. If your short skirt shows a good amount of leg, it is best to keep your top more covered up. This keeps the focus on your legs and balances the proportions of the outfit. Layers, for example a crisp blazer worn over a nubby sweater or a sweater layered over a button-down shirt, work especially well.

Tights or Leggings

If you must wear a sleeveless or low-cut top, then opaque tights or leggings will help balance the bareness of the top and the shortness of the skirt.

Hats, Coats and Accessories

Boots, especially tall boots, are most appropriate during colder seasons. Try coordinating an entire ensemble of boots, skirt, tights, top, coat, hat, gloves and scarf for smart cold-weather look. Don't be afraid to add bold colour to a dark outfit with colourful tights, hats, scarves and gloves.
