1. DO pair boots to go under trousers when they are not very fitted and the silhouette of the boot cannot be seen.

2. DO hem trousers to go with the heel you have chosen. Half an inch from the floor is the shortest you should hem your trousers, to get the maximum elongating effect of the combination. The effect of shorter lengths is to make the trouser leg a sort of bell that chimes against your leg.
3. DO pair Victorian boots (those with a low heels, a tapered toe, and laces) with cropped trousers, provided the trouser leg covers the top of the boot. DON'T allow a gap between your cropped trousers and your boots, it will look as if you have outgrown them.

4. DON'T tuck straight or wide trousers into your boots: ONLY slim or skinny trousers can be tucked in, or you are in for a Robin Hood moment.
