If you are like most women who read our blog, you probably own at least one pair of ankle boots. You may even be the proud owner of several pairs. The real question is, do you know how to wear them? In the interest of balancing comfort, warmth, and style, we are pleased to present the following tips and tricks about how you can wear ankle boots with virtually any outfit.
How to Wear Ankle Boots
Ankle boots for all seasons
Where year ‘round fashion is concerned, nothing beats a great pair of ankle booties. Pair them with short-shorts in the summertime, and wear them with tights when winter rolls around. Industrial moto-style ankle boots are just right for weekend outings, and stacked heel booties work well in an office environment.
If you’re wondering if you can wear a miniskirt in winter, the answer is yes. Stay toasty warm when you don a pair of thick opaque tights, a turtleneck cashmere sweater, and a black leather jacket. Add over-the-knee cable knit socks for uber comfort no matter how low the thermometer drops. Socks over leggings is another fashionable fall look that will keep you nice and warm on winter walks, say style pros at Disney’s Babble magazine.
Expect the unexpected
Blue boots with a yellow dress? Purple boots with a red blazer? You can pull off this fashion-forward look in autumn, provided you remember to combine a bright color with a tone that’s slightly more subdued, advise fashion gurus at Glamour magazine.
When you want to dress up for a night on the town, and you’re in the mood for class combined with casual comfort, don a pretty party dress along with a clunky pair of lug sole combat boots. You’ll look as if you made an effort but didn’t try too hard. Keep ‘em guessing when you add flirtatious lacy boot cuffs to your autumn ensemble.
When the weather gets chilly, you’ll be glad to have a drawer full of fashionable boot socks for fall. Knee highs, thigh highs, and cozy ankle-high socks provide all day comfort in your go-to autumn ankle boots. Stock up on socks now, and you won’t worry about cold tootsies in colder seasons.
Ankle boots and jeans go together in any weather
Tuck your skinniest jeans into your ankle boots, or roll the cuffs and let a little bit of ankle show. Ankle boots tend to be a lot easier to pull on and off than full-height boots, making them great for stylish girls on the go. In fall, you can bridge the gap between pants and ankles with wooly boot cuffs that add warmth without being too bulky inside the boot.
Some women take awhile to get on board with ankle boots. Others take to the trend right away. If you’re like many stylish girls, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start wearing ankle booties years ago. Whether wedged or flat, buckled or laced, ankle boots are here to stay.
