Light-Brown Booties with a floral dress

Let’s start with a classic western ankle boot. Opt for lighter shades like beige, caramel and tan to keep your outfit from looking too heavy. Pair with a flirty ruffled minidress and you’ll be good to go.

Patterned Ankle Boots and a Printed Miniskirt

Bright hues, like magenta and ultra violet, and bold patterns, like stripes and florals, feel fresher than your dark, studded winter go-tos. Have fun mixing and matching with a poppy miniskirt or statement sunglasses.

Grunge Combat Boots and a shirtdress

Not so much a fan of ditsy spring daisies or tropical prints? Lucky for you, a pair of worn-in lace-ups looks just as good with your fall plaid pants as it will with your spring plaid shirtdress. Just be sure to go for a thinner sole or you might end up looking like you’re rocking winter boots in June.

White Booties and an oversize jacket

Sneakers or flats might look too casual. But a pair of white-hot boots instantly elevates a shapeless dress so you can feel breezy and comfortable without sacrificing style.

Hiking Boots and a Maxi Skirt

Leave the shorts for actual hiking and opt for a pretty maxi skirt instead (ideally one that hits just above your ankle for a little flash of skin). The flowy, delicate fabric balances out those tough, durable lace-ups.
