21 Things to Wear with Your Ankle Boots
Winter, spring, summer, fall: No matter the season, these versatile shoes add the perfect hint of put-togetherness without all the fuss of heels. Here, 21 things (you already own) that you can wear with your trusty new booties.
BLACK JEANS, A BLACK TURTLENECK AND A BLACK BLAZER
Boots don't necessarily need to be the last accessory you add. They can be the statement all on their own. Rock your leopard or snakeskin booties with all black. Or all brown. Or all white. (You get the idea.)
WHITE JEANS AND A LIGHT SWEATER
See what we mean about all white? Even your plain caramel joints can stand out here.
BLACK JEANS, AN OATMEAL SWEATER AND A CAMEL COAT
If you’re going to mix colors, just make sure to coordinate like hues up top and like hues down below. That way you don’t appear too jumbled.
Flared Denim and a Cropped Sweater
Sure you can technically sneak knee-high boots under your new flares, but avoid the bulk with an ankle pair. Then keep the rest of the outfit light with a sweater that hits right at your hips.
A STATEMENT COAT AND TROUSERS
Don’t fear patterns. Boots anchor a loud outer piece.
Snakeskin is optional.
Skinny Jeans, a Tunic and a Leather Jacket
Proportions. Proportions. Proportions.
Dark Denim, a Cozy Sweatshirt and a Furry Jacket
This is basically the ideal outfit for brunch with the girls.
A TURTLENECK AND A JUMPER

A TURTLENECK AND A MIDI SKIRT
Showing off a bit of calves is still sexy, people.
A knit column dress and an oversize cardigan
A long shift, an equally long sweater and a pair of pointed booties creates a super slimming effect.
A Velvet Dress and a blazer
This is how you toughen up a going-out look.
A shift dress and a moto jacket
But don't feel beholden to just velvet. Any little dress can work.
A Lace Dress
Super sweet meets super chic.
Silk Pants and a Slouchy Sweater
You may think that Western-inspired ankle boots and a flowy patterned piece is a bit too Little House on the Prairie. But that's where a white pullover comes into play—to balance it out.
CULOTTES and a Crop Top
Remember what we said earlier about proportions? Here, you want to make sure your cropped pants are the star of the show. Choose a blouse that hits right at the waistline and let a sliver of ankle show.
Culottes and a boxy sweater
You can also choose a sweater that hits a teeny bit lower (just make sure it's not hugging your hips) and boots that hit a teeny bit higher.
A SHIRTDRESS AND TIGHTS
Lazy Sunday. Done.
A cotton dress and floppy hat
Come spring, this ensemble will be your go-to. Just remember to color-coordinate accoutrements.
