How to Rock a Dress 'n' Boots Combo

"I just bought a cute pair of short boots. I love them with jeans, but want to try them with a dress. Do you have any ideas?"

We love the oh-so-stylin’ boots ‘n’ dress combo. Flouncy or fitted, frilly or simple, any spring dress can get a major style boost from a cute boot! Here are some of our faves…

These boots are shorter, so they're perf for springy temps.

Nautical stripes are big this season. A ship-shape tunic makes the booties perf for strolling around the mall or for chillin’ out on a Saturday. Add a bright sweater and tights if you’re still chilly!

Stripe Tonal Dress, $18,

Inexpensive rubber bracelets keep the vibe casual. Pile them up on one arm, or wear some on each wrist. Fun, but not too girly.
Set of 12 Rubber Bracelets, $2,

A floral frock keeps your stompers boho cool. Looks sweet on its own this spring, but right now keep it cozy with a (faux) furry vest.
Hillary Floral Bow Dress, $45,

Slide on an adorable turquoise bracelet to add some pretty color. Gorge, but not too dramatic.

For a more sophisticated vibe, try a ruffled dress with a fitted waist. The loose shape of the dress, combined with the simple boots gives your outfit an effortless look.
