How the Chicest Celebs Are Wearing Dresses and Boots Right Now

With the biggest designers lining around the block to dress them, it's little wonder celebrities constantly provide us with outfit inspiration. The red carpet is all well and good (who doesn't love a frothy Giambattista Valli gown?), but in our opinion, we see some of our favourite A-list outfits when they're off out for dinner, at fashion shows or even running errands in downtown New York. And right now, it seems the stars are defaulting to the same autumnal outfit we ourselves are wearing on repeat: dresses and boots.

In an attempt to make the most of this in-between season—while the weather is still cold but the days are gradually getting brighter—we've been sporting dresses and boots nonstop. However, with mini, midi and maxi-length dresses to choose from—as well as ankle, calf, knee-high and over-the-knee boot options at our disposal—deciding upon a suitable pairing isn't easy. Which is exactly why we've turned to celebrities. From Kaia Gerber and Elsa Hosk to Julianne Moore and SJP, as well as Katie Holmes keep scrolling to see the celebrities are wearing dresses and boots right now.
