3 trendy ways to wear ankle boots


With chillier days upon us, many of us have already begun the annual wardrobe shuffle, packing away our strappy sandals and summer dresses to make room for winter wear.

Festival chic

Whether you’re a regular on the outdoor music festival scene or simply want to dress like one, the ankle boot is the perfect way to bring this edgy style together, not to mention a comfortable way to get through an entire day or two (or three, or more) of festival fun.

Throw on a slightly oversized knitted pullover with a chunky patterned scarf, a bold pair of patterned leggings for some added personality, and a pair of knitted socks – let these peek out above the top of your boots for a fun and playful look.

Working woman

When it’s business as usual, a great pair of ankle boots translates just as well in the office as it does on the urban scene. Corporate divas in search of a slightly edgier work look opt for a pair of burgundy slacks with a crisp white button-up shirt neatly tucked in. Finish the look off with the ankle boots, a pale blue cotton-knit waterfall cardigan or blazer and a funky (but subtle) collar necklace.

If you can get away with wearing denim jeans at work, opt for a dark blue wash with leg bottoms folded over twice to show off a little more of the shoe (and maybe a funky pair of socks, too). Go for a button-down plaid shirt and throw a chunky loose-knit jersey over your shoulders to complete the look.

Date night

The perfect outfit for a night out with bae is one that makes you feel as great as you look – with shoes that are chic yet comfortable enough to walk the length of a promenade or dance the night away without ending up with sore feet.

For a romantic night out, pair those gorgeous ankle boots with a pair of black stockings under an above-the-knee cocktail-style dress. Throw a leather jacket over for a smart-casual evening look, or opt for a denim jacket for a look that’s a little more laid back.
