How to Choose the Best Hemline for Your Favorite Boots

Choosing the right hemline for your fall boots

Discover our fall guide to how to expertly pair this season's hemlines with the best shoe or boot.

Vince Carleigh Riding Boot: wear under cropped, wide leg pants or denim (ex: Nili Lotan Ilford Gaucho Pant +  Closed Leira Denim)

Riding boots are back this fall, but this time they are best worn under cropped wide leg pants + denim, rather than over a skinny jean.

Vince Highland Suede Riding Boot: wear under cropped, wide leg pants or with dresses (ex: VB Copelyn Dress + Jonathan Simkhai Vegan Leather Wide Leg Pants)

Update your tall heeled boot by styling it under wide leg pants, or wearing it back to a midi length dress.

Anine Bing Tania Boot: wear with a denim skirt or with a slimmer leg jean tucked in (ex: Tibi Double Waisted Skirt + Tibi Quinn Jean)

Western is trending this season, especially when it comes to footwear. For a modern take on the trend, we recommend pairing the boot with a midi length skirt or with a jean that tapers at the bottom tucked in.

Etoile Susee Ankle Boot: wear with denim that hits just at the top of the boot or tucks in a bit (no skin sandwich) or with dresses that you want to make more casual (ex: Etoile Okleya Dress + Agolde 90’s pinch in abstract)

A slouchy flat ankle boot adds a touch of masculinity to dresses that need an edge. When pairing with denim, make sure that your jeans hit at the top of the boot or kind of “pool” at the top. As Amy Smilovic of Tibi says, we want to avoid the “skin sandwich”— showing skin between the hemline and the top of the boot.

Etoile Dicker Boot: wear with flared or boot cut denim that goes over the boot (ex: Closed X-Press in Creme + SLVRLAKE Grace Laurel Canyon)

This fall is all about the longer boot cut or flared denim, and the iconic Marant Dicker boot is perfect for wearing underneath. Make sure your denim covers or goes over the boot, rather than trying to tuck a skinny jean in.

Vince Hera Leather Mule: wear with almost everything! the perfect shoe for difficult hemlines (ex: Nili Lotan Cord Shon Pant + Closed Fayna jean)

When in doubt, a mule is the best solution for difficult hemlines. Pair the mule back to interesting pants or denim with unusual silhouettes. They save the day when nothing else seems to make sense.
