Thigh-high boots have been massively trending for a few years now, and while we feel pretty confident wearing them over a pair of skinny jeans, when it comes to pairing them with skirts, we're a little less sure. (We just can't get the image of Vivian Ward out of our head.) But there is one skirt style that perfectly balances the sexy high-rise boot better than any other silhouette: a flouncy A-line.

See, a full skirt that goes an inch or two over the top of the boot will help keep your proportions in check as you twirl your heart out go about your day. And when you bring together the naturally preppy, prim vibe of a knee-length skirt with the not-so-subtle sex appeal of over-the-knee boots, you end up with a cool-girl mix that anyone can pull off.

Just think of all the new skirt-boot combinations you can add to your rotation now...
