Let’s face it. Next to pumpkin spice lattes, ankle boots are our favorite fall indulgence. They can go with so many different outfits and come in a variety of different styles: flat, stiletto, block heel, suede, leather, plain, embellished.
However, this versatility can cause a case of ankle boot stress. If afflicted, you might find yourself wondering things like “how can I wear ankle boots with skinny jeans?” or “can I pull off wearing ankle boots with a dress?”
Don’t give into this stress. Read our guide on how to wear ankle boots (with any outfit!) instead.
1) dress up your favorite booties
Let’s cut to the chase. Yes, you can totally wear ankle boots with dresses.
Is it still warm out but you want to autumn up your favorite summer dress? Go for ankle boots. They’re a simple way to transition your wardrobe into the new season.
Lighter color boots in a tan suede are a good go-to. The Eurosoft Marlo Open Booties have a trendy block heel and an airy opening that make them easy to wear in warmer weather.
You can also add some layers to your outfit. Pair your dress with a cardigan or light jacket and your newest kicks. The Sugar Tiernie Booties in the outfit below are super flattering when worn with a dress. They highlight your ankles and make your legs seem longer.
2) sock it to me
For a wintry look, wear some thick socks and pull them above your jeans or your ankles so they peek out of your ankle boots. This provides some more visual detail to your outfit and pulls together the perfect cozy vibe for the new season.
3) ankle boots + skinny jeans = your new go-to
Wondering how to wear ankle boots with skinny jeans?
If your jeans are a bit long, you can roll them up or do a half-cuff to show off your ankles. This eliminates bulk at the bottom of your jeans and highlights your shoes.
If your skinny jeans taper into your boots, simply tuck them in. You could also pull some chunky wool socks over your jeans to add an interesting layer.
4) just the right proportions
When you’re packing on the layers for colder weather, ankle boots are a wonderful way to lighten your look.
An oversized sweater and a coat plus bulky boots make your whole outfit look bulky. Streamline your proportions with some booties like these Dolce by Mojo Moxy Nora ankle boots.
5) go for visual interest
Ankle boots should never be boring. While you can add visual interest with colorful tights or funky socks, you can also invest in some embroidered booties.
Embrace the embroidery. If you treat these booties like neutrals, you’ll spice up your whole look.
