If boots are a winter staple then ankle boots and booties definitely lead the way in style stakes. Rock yours with these tips and ways to wear ankle boots and look absolutely awesome this season.

Ways to wear ankle boots when it's cold out

Booties are fabulous in colder weather as they look great with carefully crafted layers. Wear yours with a winter dress (mini or maxi), slip on a pair of thick stockings and finish off the look with a jacket or coat.

Slim leg bottoms work best with ankle boots so wear them with leggings and a longer length coat or style them with some jeggings or skinnies and a cropped jacket or cardi.

Tips to rock booties

Elongate your legs by opting for black ankle boots with black jeggings, tights, leggings or stockings. Booties also look great with cropped bottoms (such as boyfriend jeans). Slip on a pair of socks that just peek out to stay warm and accessorise your look. Add a pop to an all-black or all-neutral ensemble by opting for a pair of boots in an eye-catching hue. Deep reds and tan lead the way for must-have colours for boots this season.

Find a pair of ankle boots that suit your style

If you're on a budget opt for one pair of ankle boots that can work with a number of outfits. A pair with a wedge heel in grey or tan is an excellent choice as they can be dressed up or down.

Go for ankle boots that work well with your personal style. If you're not into heels, there are a range of flat-soled options or boots with a stacked heel or rider style. If you prefer something muted go for basic black or brown boots. But if you prefer something more eye-catching look for fringed or faux fur detailing and bold colours.
