Tall boots can make skirts and dresses the right choice for cold weather wear. Tall boots range from knee high to over the knee and are available in a variety of heel heights. Boots can work well with short skirts or longer ones and are suitable for women of all ages. Pair your boots and skirts according to style, shape and length for a polished and fashionable look for a party, shopping, or a day at the office.
Choose boots that fit and flatter your leg. Look for tall boots that fit closely to the calf. Visit a cobbler for alterations or check boot circumference when shopping for tall boots at Zappos.com. Opt for a heel height that is comfortable for your lifestyle.
Add tights. Match your tights to your boots or your skirt or opt for a subtle pattern or print. Create an especially long and lean line by opting for a skirt, boots and tights in the same color. Wear tights with your skirt and boots to stay warm and provide a bit of modesty.
Wear knee high boots with a knee length skirt. Allow at least an inch or two of leg to show between the top of your boots and the hem of your skirt; however, choose the skirt length that looks best on your body when you wear a skirt with tall boots.
Combine shorter or mini skirts with boots to make the most of your legs without showing too much skin. Add heavy, opaque tights if you are wearing a much shorter skirt with boots. Pair your over the knee tall boots with a short skirt, but keep the outfit simple and classic to avoid looking too trendy.
Tuck tall boots under your long skirts for warmth and style. Choose a close fitting boot without additional bulk under longer skirts. Add leggings, heavy tights or even warm over the knee socks in a cold climate.
A good quality pair of boots can last you for years, complimenting skirts, dresses and pants.
Avoid patent leather and spike heels as these tend to look like club or fetish wear as opposed to stylish boots.
