I Have the Sudden Urge to Wear Dresses Again, Specifically With This Anti-Trend Shoe

Whilst early spring comes with its own fashion struggles, it does offer up a moment for me to indulge in one of my favourite styling combinations: Boots and dresses. Tired of donning trousers throughout the winter months, the rising temperature of these initial spring days presents the opportunity to re-introduce dresses into my wardrobe rotation—without having to cover them up in jumpers, scarves and coats at last! Whilst I’ve been waiting for this very specific time in the calendar for months now, I can’t get ahead of myself—it’s might be dress season but my sandals still have some time to wait before they’re ushered out from storage.

With this in mind, it’s time to debut my favourite spring outfit combination. Keen to purge tights from my outfits yet still requiring shielding from the elements, I find myself reaching for knee boots specifically for this purpose. Not only are knee boots the most polished boot silhouette going IMO, but they’re also timeless also work well with every dress trend I can think of. For midis, they disappear under the fabric to create a seamless finish where another boot style, say ankle boots, wouldn’t. With miniskirts they look inherently cool and work to balance out hemlines. Truly, dresses and knee boots make for a formidable pairing, and I’m not the only one who thinks so.
