Easily one of the “must have” items for Fall, ankle boots have been popping up on both the runways and the high street, the style is worn just slightly higher above the ankle. From suede to leather, flats, to a thick, stacked heel, try the following tips for styling this wardrobe staple.
The two go together like peas and carrots. Skinny jeans no longer want to be hidden under a pair of knee-high boots. Skinny jeans make legs appear longer, so show off those pins with a pair of ankle boots. There is no need to stick with dark denim – white jeans paired with ankle boots are popping up on the legs of celebs everywhere, as well as “lived in” skinny jeans with rips and holes.
Opaque Tights and a Mini Skirt
Opaque tights, the same color as the boot and paired with a mini skirt will do wonders for those of us not blessed with long legs. By sticking to the same color tones and donning a thicker pair of opaque tights, the legs appear leaner and longer. Plus opaque tights are great for making less than perfect legs appear more toned.
Rolled Up Jeans
A peek of bare leg between the top of the boot and the bottom of the rolled up jean, takes the ankle boot trend to the next level. Just remember to keep it casual – the rolled up jeans should look ‘lived in’ and this trend lends itself to a casual suede or leather natural toned boot.
Just because it’s Fall doesn’t mean your maxi dress has to be packed away for next spring. Try pairing your favorite maxi with a low stacked heel ankle boot and topping off the look with a denim jacket, or leather bomber for a bit of boho chic.
Show off those curves with a pencil skirt and high-heeled ankle boots. Whether you choose to leave the legs bare is up to you. For colder days top the outfit off with a tailored coat for a sophisticated take on the ankle boot trend.
