There are many cute styles and designs that can make you look individual and creative. I think this footwear is ideal for wearing with any outfit in so many different ways. What I like the most about this particular footwear, they do look chic and glamour. For instance, you can try them on with a simple dress and cardigan. There is a kind of school uniform vibe that makes you look youthful and sweet.
I love to see girls wearing cropped sweaters worn with flared skirts completed with chunky ankle-boots. This look allows you to show off your sweet and girlish side. If you want to make things look edgy, then be sure to try on leggings and military jacket. This look is ideal for casual walks on the town. If you want to strike a pose, then I recommend to try on a tailored coat and style it with your favorite black ankle-boots.
How to wear ankle boots with dresses
If you decided to try on ankle boots with dresses, then I recommend choosing this footwear colored in a neutral hue. They can be in black, brown or grey color. But you can also go for nude, tan, white, silver or gold-colored ankle boots, as they also considered to be neutral colors. Never mix contrasting colors: white booties and black skirt might cut your legs in half, so you appear short.
That’s why I always go for heeled booties, so I look taller and my legs appear sleeker, slender and longer. If your feet are large, then go for matte material ankle boots, shiny materials will make your feet look larger.
Boots with wide cuff make your legs appear slimmer. That’s why it’s important to choose boots that flatter your body and make your legs appear longer. I know many petite ladies who go for pointed-toe boots, as they make them slimmer and taller. If you want to create a flattering look, then go for dresses that end above the knee. One trick: shorter dress, the longer your legs look. Knee-length dresses are not recommended, as they tend to shorten legs. A simpler dress more accessories you can add. It can be a wide belt, layered boho necklaces and many other cool items to liven up your neutral color dress. Choose a dress based on your body type. It’s always a great idea to experiment with your dress and boots. Ankle boots and midi dress can work, but you should add opaque tights in the same color as your boots, so your legs appear longer.
How to wear ankle boots to work
First, if you’re looking for the perfect ankle boot to wear to work, look for neutral-colored design, choose the one that doesn’t feature all kinds of embellishments or eye-catching details that might disturb attention. My personal favorites are mid-heel black leather ankle boots at 3.5 inches, yes, they’re walkable and comfortable. Make sure the design and silhouette pairs well with slacks (cropped or not), work dresses, and skirts. They can also work on the weekends with jeans for hanging out and dresses for going out, that’s why look for versatile pair.
Take into account your company’s culture and what would be appropriate in that setting. If your work dress code is more relaxed, then feel free to play with different textures, patterns, and heel heights. You can even try on suede rust-colored booties. If your workplace is more on the conservative side, it’s safer to stick to neutral colors (black, tan, grey), and comfortable heights (3.5 inches and under).
The different types of ankle boots for working hours:
Dressier ankle boots come with pointy toes and stiletto heels. They should be neutral colored made of suede, leather or patent leather. They do look cool with suits, pencil skirts, jumpsuits skinny jeans and wide-leg pants. I do love to see women at work wearing sock style ankle boots, the ones with pointy toes, block, and stiletto-heeled versions.
If you are more into casual style, then be sure to choose the ones with moderate-sized stacked or block heel. They can be colored in different hues and made of suede, leather, patent leather. You are free to style them with cropped trousers, knee-length skirts, work dresses, or dark jeans. My favorites are Chelsea, Biker Style, block-heeled version and wedges.
Ankle boots with dress pants can look amazing. My favorite look is the one that features pleated pants in slim fit combined with a pair of black leather ankle boots. Ankle boots with straight leg jeans look a bit vintage-inspired to me, but I do like this combo. I personally prefer cropped jeans, so I can show off a bit of my skin.
So, ankle boots can be worn in different ways, all depends on your company’s dress code, is it business formal or business casual.

First of all, you should choose the right height of the heel. There are the flat versions, as well as a range of heel height from half an inch to over 4 inches high. Plus, you are free to choose whatever color you like, but I recommend to start from the black or brown neutrals, but there are plenty of other colors and eye-catching prints available. If you want to try these shoes teamed with skirts and dresses, then you definitely should wear tights in the same color as your boots, or go for boots that are close to your skin tone.
How to wear ankle boots with jeans
Why so many ladies are in love with boots and jeans combo? They both are classic and casual, as well as stylish and edgy. The result always looks perfect for relaxed occasions.
Most ankle boots come with slim silhouettes, that’s why they look so chic with skinny and tight-fit jeans. Indeed, a pair of slim jeans look great with a button-up shirt and a blazer. The length of jeans should be ideal for tucking inside your booties, either be cuffed showing off your skin. I personally love cropped skinny jeans, they provide a balanced appearance.
