How to Wear Knee High Boots and Pencil Skirts | Fall 2012

File This Under Foolproof Fall Outfits: Pencil Skirts + Knee-High Boots

We're all about outfit formulas that make Fall dressing incredibly easy and incredibly chic. After studying the Fall runways, particularly Altuzarra, we fell for the cool proportions of a pencil skirt styled up with a slouchy sweater and tall, knee-high boots. It's a little more unexpected than your pencil skirt and ankle-boot combos, but that's part of what makes it so eye-catching. It mixes the downtown-vibe of a great, just-a-little-sexy boot with a polished, lean skirt, while an easy knit gives it a slightly more nonchalant finish. There's really no wrong way to style it out — in fact, the options are limitless when you look to cozy textures countered with slim skirts, skirts with prints, and boots with a little more personality via buckles or even fringe. So, whether your plans involve heading from work right out to dinner, or if you're looking for ways to change up your date-night look, any of these foolproof pairings will get you there, ever so stylishly.
