Just wear them and feel fabulous. The most important style detail for a riding boot is that it should reach almost to the knee – even a little above it. This gives the optical illusion that the fibula is much longer than it is in reality. In combination with a pencil skirt or frock coat, your legs will appear to be much longer.

Fourteen years ago, I saw this look in Milan, since then riding boots have been a classic part of my wardrobe.

Tip: You can get riding boots in any tack shop. You can even order them, tailored to your size. The waiting time for the beloved riding boots can be a little long, but they are definitely worth the wait.

The best riding boots are from Sergio Grasso from Italy. Where else?
