    Similarly, knee-high boots are flawless with au courant ribbed midi or maxi dresses or a top-and-skirt set, ideally with a slit to reveal a beautifully designed shaft or a unique detail in all cases. But, to me, there’s no better formula than a tall boot with a midi dress. The combination looks polished as ever and “elongates your silhouette,” as Marina Larroudé, founder of her namesake line, Larroudé, explains. Plus, they work with dress silhouettes of all kinds — A-line, tiered, fitted, flared, asymmetric, and beyond.

    With A Long Dress

    “I tend to wear long dresses all the time, and I love to pair them with a tall boot,” says Larroudé. Same. My favorite combination is a printed midi with a boot in a color that picks up accents from the motif. To finish, I frequently go for a sleek bag and polished gold jewelry (usually piled on). 

    Make It A Mini

    “When I’m [going] for a sexier look, I wear tall boots over jeans or with a mini skirt,” Larroudé tells me. When taking the leg-baring route, lean into nostalgia á la Cher Horowitz by pairing knee-high boots with a chocolate leather brown skirt, plaid top, and small bag.
