Ankle boots are the distant cousin of the traditional, knee-high boot. Ankle boots hit just above the ankle and can be heeled or flat, simple or wild, casual or fancy. They are also extremely versatile wardrobe pieces because they pair easily with practically any style or ensemble: you can tuck skinny jeans or leggings into them, wear a skirt and tights, or even go with shorts for an edgier look!
Read on for some fashion advice from the JustFab Style Experts about how to don your amazing ankle boots for women!
How to Wear Ankle Boots
Daisy Lewellyn, President & Creative Director, wears ankle boots for a hip, chic feel:
“I think stiletto ankle boots look ultra sexy with a great pair of black skinny jeans. The heel makes your outfit feel incredibly chic, and the dark denim is hip. Add a fitted top, eclectic jewelry and a bold hobo bag for a concert-ready look that rocks!”
Jessica Paster, Chief Stylist, pairs them with skirts or dresses:
“I love the bohemian feel of flat ankle boots with a flowy skirt or dress! Tons of stars, from Kate Hudson and Nicole Richie to Blake Lively and Katie Holmes, have been seen rocking this style recently, and it always looks fabulous. Try a dress or skirt with a loose-fitted, breezy style and a girly print. You can belt it to achieve some definition, or try oversized sunglasses for a little more attitude.”
George Kotsiopoulos, Style Expert, likes ankle boots for a high-fashion look:
“We're seeing a lot of ankle boots being paired with short, sassy dresses on the red carpet. It's a really interesting look, because the ankle boots add an unexpected, edgy tone to what would otherwise be the standard, pretty, awards show dress. Stick with a heeled ankle boot for a leg-elongating, formal feel.”
Elle and Blair Fowler, Style Experts, wear this style in many different situations:
“You can't go wrong if you pair light-wash denim shorts with your favorite ankle boots! Slouchy, flat ankle boots are perfect for a more casual, hippie-chic or rocker style, while high heel ankle boots are awesome for a sexy, high-glam look. Tuck in a blousy top and add a thin belt to create a clean line at the hip. Then throw on some long, stylish necklaces. Adding a boyfriend cardigan or a brightly colored handbag can make your ensemble appear effortless but chic.”
Dos and Don'ts:
DO: Experiment with pairing ankle boots with glamorous, high-fashion attire.
DON'T: Wear ankle boots with below-the-knee skirts or dresses - you end up with an awkward stripe of skin between the top of the boot and the edge of your clothing!
