Get the Look of ...
Minidresses and Boots

This combination is one of the chicest around—you just have to get the proportions right. Here, four great pairings.


This '60s-inspired silhouette needs to be matched with something harder-edged to keep it from feeling too cutely retro.

Wool "Tab" dress, $414, Milly New York,

These are tough but really simple, so they won't overwhelm the dress.

Leather "Engineer 12R" boots, $198, The Frye Company,


Such a pretty, feminine style: It begs to be given a shot of sex appeal.

Silk/cotton dress, $328, Rebecca Taylor,

With a just-high-enough heel and a modern, to-the-ankle shape, these have a sultry, rocker-ish quality.

Leather "Aplegate" boots, $129.95,


Slouchy and a bit oversize, this piece requires sleek, polished boots to balance its casual mood.

Wool sweater dress, $568, Vanessa Bruno,

These are nicely fitted and super-slick, with a sliver of a wedge to give a subtle dose of height.

Patent leather "Matilde" boots, $695, Loeffler Randall,


This flowy satin number is so girly: Fitted boots will offset its flowiness, and earthy ones will temper its sweetness.

Viscose/cotton dress, $375, Mint Jodi Arnold,

Small strappy buckles up the leg give this perfectly snug pair a low-key, slightly rugged feel.

Leather "Latchh" boots, $139.95,
