Fall is the perfect season to wear ankle boots. They’re chic, comfortable, and they go with pretty much everything! From tights to turtlenecks, you’ll find that these shoes are an essential part of your fall style game. But what if you don’t know how to wear them? Well, fear not! Here, we’ve put together a comprehensive style guide to help you figure out how to wear different types of ankle boots.
The Classic Ankle Boots
Originally, ankle boots were made for the girls who wanted to show off their very expensive, highly-detailed, strappy, lace-up stilettos. That was then. Now, you can easily get away with a simpler black ankle bootie. To wear classic boots, just make sure you pair them with the right garments. But, you can try a top-heavy, black turtleneck paired with a denim skirt and oversized coat. You don’t need to go crazy with your accessories, but wear a pearl or a stud earring, and you’ll look right.
The Western-Inspired Ankle Boots
These boots look like they’re straight out of a pair of cowboy boots (and they are!) But these days, the most popular way to wear ankle boots is via the Western boot. With a pair of dark jeans and a lightweight jacket, you’ve basically nailed the perfect ankle boot outfit for fall!
Slide on slides are back! They’re the most versatile boot styles of all, not just because they pair with pretty much everything but also because of the shoes’ ability to transition from summer to fall. The most common variety of slide-ons these days come in thick rubber soles. You can pair these boots with a light dress and sandals or just with a pair of comfy pants. They’re also very comfy, so you’ll have a very easy time walking around in them all day.
The Striped Ankle Boots
The striped boot is an awesome boot style that’s not usually associated with fall. But somehow, they work so well with everything from tights to skirts! You can dress them up or down, depending on the colors you choose.
On the flip side of the shoe style spectrum is the slip-on. These are great for the girl who doesn’t want to commit to the all-out-boot-style look. Slip on your leather or heeled boots and then walk around in a pair of sock-less low-top sneakers. This alternative look works wonders with tights and jeans.
The Cool Timberlands
A pair of Timberland boots always make an outfit that much cooler. Whether you choose to wear them with a mini skirt and ankle-length sweater or you go the casual route with skinny jeans and a hoodie, Timberlands will bring your outfit together.
The Retro Boots
You can’t go wrong with an early-2000s-inspired boot. It will make you feel nostalgic for that long-ago time in your life, but at the same time, it will make you feel modern and in tune with fashion. And most importantly, it will be completely fashionable. (Plus, they’re basically guaranteed to go with every outfit you can think of.)
The Platform Ankle Boots
Another iconic style for fall is the platform boot. These are the boots of your dreams: comfortable, but still polished and fashionable. These days, you can find pretty much any kind of platform boot you could possibly want. The biggest choice you’ll have is in the material. Will it be a fancy-pants satin one? Or a real leather one? You can pair these boots with a light dress and sandals or just with a pair of comfy pants. They’re also very comfy, so you’ll have a very easy time walking around in them all day.
The Shearling Boots
Though these are technically not boots, they’ll definitely help you get ready for the snow and the holidays. Plus, they’re incredibly practical; the perfect boots for everything from the office to outdoor strolls.
The Faux-Leather Boot
If you’re feeling frisky, a pair of faux-leather boots are basically a necessity. It’s hard to go wrong with this classic look, and the choice of material will really set your outfit apart. The next time you find yourself in a situation where you’d like to pull off a pair of simple black boots, you can do so by adding a little flare to them.
