A group of us mama’s were chit chatting at soccer practice this past Saturday and the subject of how to wear ankle boots came up. I am a HUGE fan of wearing ankle boots year round, and as a matter of fact I own only ankle boots (besides my rain boots), so I may or may not have an issue. Ha. I just think they make every outfit better, from a pair of skinny jeans and a top, to a dress and tights, all the way up to something more formal. They edge up a look depending on the pair, and just make life better.
Here are some tips on how exactly to style these boots, and my tips for making it work for you:
– In my opinion, ankle boots look the best when worn with a skinnier leg pant or legging, or with a dress/skirt. I like to roll my pants up a little when wearing an ankle boot so that a little bit of skin shows. This lengthens the leg line in my opinion, and creates a slimming look. This gets a bit trickier in the cooler winter months, but until it seriously snows here I am willing to have cold ankles;)
– I love wearing ankle boots with dresses and skirts! I think it has a more unexpected look, and creates more interest. I also love wearing them in the warmer months with denim cutoffs and a tee (or tights, denim cutoffs, and a sweater in winter!), or a faux leather skirt and band tee.
-Something I like to do when going out to something fancier is to pair a more casual able boot with a dresser dress. I always strive to make something a bit off about a look, and ankle boots are a great way to do this. It creates a more unique look and adds visual interest!
This is a look I have been lusting over lately, too!
-In the winter months I love wearing fleece lines tights with a dress and ankle boots, or a skirt and sweater. It becomes something other than a pair of pants and a top, and the boots are more practical in the snow. (Though I have been known to get snow all inside my boots while bounding through snow banks, oops!)
-I’ve mentioned before, but 99% of my boots come from Target. I love that they have trendy looks for less, and that I can get a new pair of boots or two each season. I have a variety of pairs in a bunch of different colors, though a basic pair of black and a tasseled pair of my current faves;) I’ll link some of my favorite pairs below that I own, and some I WISH to own someday.
Long live the ankle boot!
