Desert Boot — The trusty desert boot's gotten a little facelift this season with a higher shaft, a fancier heel, and a sleeker silhouette. Wear them with cropped trousers and bunched-up socks for a quirky-nerdy look.

Knee-Length Boot — Instead of wearing your knee-high boots with skinny jeans (or, god forbid, a body-con mini), try yours with a roomy shift dress or a pleated knee-length dress. It's a modern silhouette that's subtly sexy.

Chelsea Boot — Take a cue from '60s mod and wear your boots with minidresses and cropped cigarette trousers. We love the look of a little white tennis sock peeking through — but be careful that it doesn't look too grade school!
