When you think of slowly transitioning your wardrobe from the humid summer months to the cooler autumn days, thigh high boots may not exactly jump to mind. But when paired with the right ensemble, these towering statement pieces are really all you need to make your summer dresses last far past Labor Day. For further inspiration, look no further than some of Hollywood’s most stylish leading ladies, who love to layer dresses of all types over their favorite boots. The most foul proof method is to pair
over-the-knee boots with a midi-length dress, just like Rose Huntington-Whitely and Elle Fanning. On those warmer September days, feel free to show just a touch of skin like Insta-girls Kylie Jenner and Hailey Baldwin. For more fall looks to copy, click through.
