7 Easy Dress-and-Boot Combos That Work Every Single Time

There are so many dress trends to get excited about this season. From Barbie-pink minis to minimalist ‘90s-style maxis, the autumn/winter 22 catwalks were fruitful in the frock department. And the same can be said for the high street’s offering. Just one look at the new-in sections and you’ll see the resurgence of slinky slip dresses on the one hand and an array of oversized knitted silhouettes on the other, so it’s safe to say just about every style and taste has been catered to this season.

Of course, you’ll need to right footwear to pair with your new dresses. And since it’s getting cold outside, boots are the obvious choice. I don’t know about you, but from October until February, my boot collection takes pride of place in my shoe-drobe and all the pumps, sandals and trainers get shoved to the back. So, it’s lucky that boots + dress = a match made in heaven.

It’s difficult to go wrong with this combination, but there are certain pairings that are particularly chic. Scroll on to see our favourite examples of influencers wearing dresses and boots for autumn.

Style Notes: Instead of defaulting to dark tones as winter descends on us, step out in top-to-toe neutrals like Anne-Victoire. White boots feel fresh and go so well with beige, sand and off-white shades.

No high street brand does relaxed staples quite like H&M.

These look comfortable enough to wear all day. Thanks, mini heel.

Style Notes: Hands up if you struggle to style slip dresses in autumn. I’m with you, and I’ve found that the edginess of western-style boots balances things out perfectly. Just layer a blazer on top to beat the chill.

Layer over a turtleneck come November.

If you’re not totally sold on the cowboy boot trend, try a subtler western style like these sleek Mango boots.

Style Notes: Ah, this classy combination always feels reminiscent of the ‘60s. Opt for a pointed toe rather than a square toe if you’re aiming for a more modern look.

Self Portrait doesn’t just make formal dresses. This bouclé mini would work well for the office as well as everyday wear.

For croc-effect knee-highs, Paris Texas is your brand.

Style Notes: It’s like floral midi dresses and knee-high boots were destined to be worn together and Frann has absolutely nailed the look.

May cause compliments.

Affordable and on-trend, these boots are worthy of your attention.

Style Notes: Party season is fast approaching, so it’s time to start planning your after-dark attire. No need for ankle-baring stilettos—a pair of pointed boots with a narrow heel will complement your going-out dresses.

Head’s up—this isn’t the only dazzling party dress in & Other Stories’ new collection.

What is life without a little sparkle?

Style Notes: Midi dresses and knee-highs are perhaps this season’s most-worn combination, and we especially love how it looks with suede boots.

The pleating, the balloon sleeves, the heritage print—this Victoria Beckham hasn’t skimped on the details.

Just the right amount of slouch.

Style Notes: A simple black dress and boots is a winning combo. Add a blazer over the top like Alexis for added polish. 

This dress is sure to be a wardrobe classic for many years to come.

Opt for a stiletto boot to take your outfit from day to night.
