We love fall around here. In fact, we’re beyond stoked to finally break out our favorite fall staples like flannels, distressed jeans and, of course, ankle boots. How do you plan on wearing your ankle boots this season? If you’re stuck and need some inspiration, we’re got seven ways you can style your boots here.
What’s the Difference Between Ankle Boots & Booties?
First things first, we need to lay some foundation. Ankle boots and booties are often called the same thing but they’re slightly different. Booties are shorter in height and typically end right at your ankle bone. Ankle boots typically end above your ankle. Their differing heights make them each unique in the way you can style them. Don't forget to check out our recent post on how to wear and style your booties too.
7 Ways to Style Your Favorite Ankle Boots
Ankle boots come in endless styles to choose from. Whether you’re more of a sleek pair of black patent boots or some casual, western-inspired boots, there’s a style for you. So, grab your favorite pair and get ready to jump right in.
1. Wear With Your Favorite Jeans
Jeans are also a beloved fall wardrobe staple. For a simple look, throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans and an oversized tee. Add a pair of casual boots and a flannel for some warmth. Or try a pair of boots with your favorite dark flare jeans and a sweater for date night. Don’t forget the front tuck!
We also love styling our ankle boots with our favorite skinny jeans. Simply cuff the bottom of your skinny jeans, add a cute top and you’re ready to go.
2. Add Some Socks
For those chilly fall nights, adding a pair of cute socks with your ankle boots is a stylish way to keep warm. To get the look, make sure you choose a pair of socks that are ankle height or taller. Simply slip on your sock and ankle boot and fluff the sock around your ankle at the top of your boot.
Try going for a fun pattern such as plaid. Or try a solid color that matches your top. This look works best with skinny jeans or leggings—bottoms that fit tight against your leg and ankle. You can also try this look with a cute dress and cardigan.
3. Elevate Your Basic Leggings
Speaking of leggings, we love to rock our leggings with oversized tops this time of year. To elevate the style for all your fall outings, add a pair of cute ankle boots, an oversized tee, a plaid top and a cute beanie to complete the look.
4. Throw on Some Ankle Boots With Your Trousers
If you’re currently working in an office or need to dress for work, throw on some ankle boots with your trousers to add a bit of fall flair. This works great with many different cuts of trousers from bootcut to straight leg to skinny. Add a simple top, a blazer, and a statement necklace and you’re good to go.
5. Wear With a Mini Dress & Tights
Take your fall style to the next level by pairing your ankle boots with a mini dress and tights. For example, try a floral dress and add a leather jacket, black tights and black leather ankle boots for an edgy look. Or, take your floral dress and add a denim jacket, navy tights and brown buckled boots for a simpler style.
6. Try a Skirt
Don’t want to wear a dress? Try a skirt with one of your favorite tops. Add some cute socks and even tights with your ankle boots to complete the look. You can even add a cardigan to keep things extra cozy.
7. Rock a Statement Ankle Boot
We love a good statement boot. Whether you choose snakeskin or glitter, add a statement boot to a simple outfit for a pop of color or pattern.
