Autumn boots are worn with (almost) summer clothes
The thought of wearing boots in sandal season may seem unusual, but in fact, many fall boots pair perfectly with summer or seasonal wear, and pairing the two is an easy way to start smoothly transitioning your look into a transitional climate. Emily Ratajkowski, Zoe Saldana and Kaia Gerber wore boots with slip dresses and mini dresses this month, offering great inspiration for next month’s outfits.
In particular, some boots will go with almost all of your summer dresses, as well as mid-season dresses that will be the protagonists of autumn 2023.
The key fall 2023 trend is biker boots embellished with buckles and straps. Perfect for playing with contrasts and diluting the affectation of romantic floral dresses or gothic lace slip dresses.
Heeled knee high boots are a winter classic that will always be out of trend. They are easier to pair with dresses and skirts than tailored trousers or jeans, as shown in Zoe Saldana’s fuchsia pink outfit.
Massive ankle boots
Chunky ankle boots have been a celebrity favorite for several winters, and the Valentino Fall/Winter 2023 fashion show confirmed the trend. During Paris Fashion Week in early July, Kaia Gerber wore a black Valentino tie-neck mini dress and chunky square-toe ankle boots.
White boots are perhaps the most obvious choice, because the sheer palette, from cream to ivory and chalk, pairs naturally with the softer hues of a summer wardrobe. At recent couture shows, model Liya Kebede wore a pair of white heeled boots and a bodycon suede dress in a dense toffee shade, an outfit that heralds fall style.
