If you can find a more iconic fashion duo than the dress-and-boot combo, do tell. This pairing is so easy to fall back on right now as we're in-between seasons. Grab a go-to dress, throw on a pair of your favourite boots and you’re ready.
We’ve spotted some great boot-and-dress combos recently, from street style at fashion week to some of our favourite influencers, which inspired us to start the shopping list below. Although you can be pretty safe in the knowledge that most boot styles go with most dresses, these street style looks just might inspire you to leave your comfort zone and try a new pairing this season. We’re on the lookout for the perfect black chunky pair to balance out the feminine maxi dresses we’re lusting after this season. Midi dresses were made for knee-high boots, and longer maxi styles work excellently with statement ankle boots.

1. Midi Dress + Western Ankle Boots
Style Notes: Go for a bold printed dress with a pair of white boots to make this look feel very 2021.
2. Knit Dress + Slouchy Knee-high Boots
Style Notes: We couldn’t not include Eni’s combination of a mint jumper-dress and knee-high boots. If these boots make all legs look this good, we’re sold.
4. Floral Dress + Suede Ankle Boots
Style Notes: If you’re looking for a more classic dress-and-boot pairing, opt for a floral frock, like one from Rixo, and a pair of suede boots.
5. Puff Sleeve Dress + Chunky Lace-Up Boots
Style Notes: Trust Alexa Chung to make a pink dress feel super fresh. Toughen up the super-pretty outfit with a pair of biker or hiker boots. The leather crop top optional.
7. Statement Dress + Simple Stomper Boots
Style Notes: Love puff sleeves? Us too. Invest in a frock with this detail and watch the compliments roll in. A floaty dress looks effortless clashed with chunky thick tread boots.
