Published

Hiking boots are the shoe du jour this season, but making the most of them requires some key wardrobe decisions. If you've got yours but you're not sure what to wear them with, we've put together a handy guide just for you

  • Tartan skirt

    Show off your boots with a sharp short skirt – tartan will add a witty twist to these hiker’s rural roots

    Skinny-fit jeans will balance out a bold platform heel boot (while wide legs will swamp your legs)

    A chunky sock, worn over opaque tights, and ruched at the ankle will add a tough edge to these boots for city-wear
