6 Midi-Skirt-and-Boots Outfits That Will Be Everywhere This Winter

Let me be honest. When winter comes around, it doesn't take long for me to slip into a steady rotation—what some might call a rut—of jeans and jumpers. And while I love the effortlessness of the look, this season I'm determined to do things differently. My first plan of action? Finally figure out how to style midi skirts and boots. Thankfully, a quick scroll on trusty Instagram has delivered plenty of inspiration, courtesy of some of my favourite tastemakers. 

Midi Skirts and Boots: @anoukyve wears suede midi skirt with patent leather boots



From my research, it looks like one of the most fashionably foolproof ways to style a midi skirt is with knee-high boots—which just so happens to be one of the top trending footwear styles of the season. Whether you go patent leather or suede, matching tones or contrasting textures, a knee-high boot gives the perfect amount of elevation, and instantly provides a polished finish for the look. 

While knee-high boots and midi skirts can create a beautiful, classic look, there's plenty of room to go with something a touch bolder. A black boot can let a statement skirt shine, or you can create a really sleek look by doubling up on textures—think a leather skirt with leather boots, as you'll below. And if knee-high boots just are not your thing, fear not—a mid-calf or ankle boot will serve you just as well. Scroll on to see some of the top looks I've found that are destined to become your new go-to winter outfit .
