Leather high boots are ideal with jeans, giving a chic twist to any casual outfit. For a full-length silhouette, our first tip is to tuck your jeans into your boots. It's important to avoid baggy cuts and bell-bottom trousers, as they can break up the lengthening effect of high boots. For a casual chic look at the office, pair a white shirt with raw denim slim jeans tucked into black or brown leather high boots. You can also opt for black or white skinny jeans for a more modern and sophisticated look. In jeans and boots, don't hesitate to mix casual clothes with more chic pieces by playing on the cuts and materials for a subtle and elegant contrast effect.

02 How to wear high boots with a dress?

High boots are a staple of a woman's wardrobe and work wonderfully with dresses. To make this combination work, it is important to choose the right cut for your dress. Long, flowing or body-hugging dresses are perfect with high boots. For a bohemian chic look, opt for a long dress with floral prints and brown leather riding boots. For a more casual look, you can wear a jumper dress and high boots with notched soles. For a rockier look, choose a denim dress with black leather high boots. Don't hesitate to mix colours and prints for a more original and assertive look.

If you prefer skirts to dresses, knee-high boots are also a very stylish choice to complete your outfit. To add a little texture to your look and play with materials, slip on a leather or suede skirt. Mini skirts are also a great option, worn with tights or bare legs with stockings or long socks. For a bohemian chic look, a floral maxi skirt with leather western boots is a romantic and very trendy alternative. Finally, if you want to adopt a retro look, the 90s trend is bringing back the denim skirt. Pair it with high boots for a grungy look that's sure to make an impact.

Whether you wear them with a skirt, jeans or dress, tall boots are a stylish and sophisticated choice. Now that you've mastered the style brief, it's time to get down to choosing the right style: here are some tips to help you find the perfect pair of boots.

Firstly, select your boots according to the height of the shaft: this will define your look and should be based on your height. If you're short, choose boots that are below or just above the knee. If you are tall, choose over the knee boots or knee-high boots.

The shape of the boots is also important: if you have wide calves, choose soft leather boots that will adapt easiliy and fit your calves perfectly. For slim calves, look to hard leather, or lace-up boots for a perfect fit.

05 How to care for your tall boots

Regularly cleaning your high boots is the first step to keeping them in perfect condition. Use a clean cloth to remove dust and, for delicate materials such as suede, a soft brush to prevent damage to the texture. If you have several pairs of boots, alternate them regularly so that each pair keeps its shape.

There are also tips for storing your high boots: first of all, insert shoe trees into your boots to maintain their shape and prevent them from bending or sagging. If you don't have trees, you can always fill the inside of each boot with newspaper.

To save space, opt for vertical storage such as boot racks or clip-on hangers to hang your shoes in your dressing room. If possible, store your leather boots in individual covers to protect them from dust and light.
