Ankle boots are the ultimate Autumnal shoe. A stylish segueway between your summertime flats and heavy-duty winter boots, ankle boots are your go-to shoe that will work with everything in your wardrobe.
Teamed with leggings, relaxed fit jeans (cuffed or rolled up, not over the shoe), skinny jeans, tights and skirts, maxi skirts or even summer dresses, investing in a versatile pair of ankle boots is an investment that will reap wardrobe rewards!
My favourite way to wear ankle boots is whichever way it makes my legs look longer and leaner, so that means with leggings (leather or ponte), or with narrow-legged jeans rolled up. Ankle boots + boyfriend jeans are another popular combination that you’ll be seeing plenty of again this winter.
If you’re worried about the ankle boot “chopping off your foot” or making you look shorter, don’t be. Simply wear an ankle boot that is the same colour as your pants (black, grey, tan are obvious choices) and opt for a style with a block heel, rather than one that is completely flat. Opting for a boot with a (deceivingly height-assisting) block heel is also very comfortable. It’s more versatile overall, I’d highly recommend it!
There are SO many amazing ankle boots on the market this season, which is great news if, like me, you’re looking to add a new pair (pairs?). ASOS had the most to choose from, but I’ve included lots of options from other retailers below as well.
