Q&A: What to Wear with Frye Boots

Q: I bought a pair of wonderful brown leather lace up Frye boots that hit 3-4 inches above the ankle. What skirt length should I wear?

A:  Frye boots have an earthy, tough look to them, so you’re going to need a skirt with a similarly tough feel.  We like the look of corduroy with tough-looking boots, since the heaviness of the corduroy balances the visual weight of the boots.

Citizens of Humanity has a corduroy pencil skirt that hits an inch above the knee that would work well with your lace-up boots.  The corduroy skirt and Frye boots complement each other–very casually sexy. 

To complete the look and to create more visual interest, I would add a pair of textured tights. By keeping the color palette of the skirt and tights neutral, the textures would serve as the focal point of your look.  Enjoy your boots!
