Every season has a perfect uniform. In summer, it might be wedges, distressed denim and a ruffled blouse. In winter, it may be a cable-knit sweater and any footwear with a warm, fuzzy lining. For fall, we love the combination of a dress and boots—a soft transition from hot weather to cooler temps. Below, a few of our favorite combos for you to try.
7 Dress and Boot Combinations to Usher in the Fall Weather
Ruffled Cami Dress + Tall Heeled Boots
The ruffle hem detail on this blush maxi dress leaves just the right amount of room to highlight a luxurious pair of tall boots. Accessorize the cami dress with a mini snake-print shoulder purse and layer with a chunky woven sweater.
