The best part of the cold weather is that it’s finally time to break out your tall boots, a look that was all over the runways at Alexander Wang, Fendi, Lanvin, and Alexander McQueen. This fall, they’re best pulled off with miniskirts and stockings, so we devised some combinations. Fringe-trimmed, woven, and asymmetric, there’s a different skirt to go with each boot style. And if tall boots just aren’t for you, we’ve thrown in a few shorter, mod versions for you to try. Click through our slideshow below for ten ways to pull off the miniskirt-and-boots look.
For a mix of something tough and flirtatious, pair a fringed skirt with combat boots. The fringe adds a feminine detail, and the boots add a little punk.
Try pairing this asymmetrical wrap skirt with simple high-heeled boots and a structured blazer for a dressed-up fall look.
A striped silk jacquard seems all the more unusual with a pair of boots as chunky as these Acne ones. Wear it with a chunky wool sweater, sheer tights, and a scarf.
If you’re looking for something minimal, try this Topshop skirt and these Michael Kors boots. Pair the look with a crisp button-down for the office, or throw on a leather moto jacket for the weekends.
A short and flared skirt is best paired with flat over-the-knee boots. Pair it with a striped, long-sleeved shirt for a low-key Sunday brunch outfit.
Zara’s fringed and asymmetrical skirt is best countered with something as structured as these minimal leather riding boots. Throw on a blouse and a cropped jacket for a cool office look.
If you’re looking for something to wear to your next party, try this Topshop wrap skirt and these over-the-knee boots. The quilted texture, asymmetrical length, and chunky zippers make it a cool alternative to a simple LBD, while the suede boots give a sophisticated and simplistic edge. Pair them with a colorful crop top and leather jacket for a nighttime look.
Instead of the traditional black or brown option, try these blue Stuart Weitzman boots. The color gives a twist to the fall staple and stands out against rich hues. Add a simple Zara pleated skirt and a white dress shirt for a minimal look that’s great for the office.
This pairing creates the ultimate cool fall outfit: The pebbled texture of the skirt makes it tougher than any other leather mini, while the heeled platform boots add some height. Pair this with a chunky emerald knit for your next weekend coffee date.
With a bias flare and heathered texture, this tweed skirt goes with something equally minimal, like mod leather boots. Pair them with a mockneck sweater and a parka for your next off-duty look.
