Ankle boots have been a staple piece of winter fashion since…well forever. Tracing back to 1200 A.D, historians believe ankle boots were worn by nomads in eastern Asia (for more footwear history, click here). In 2012 this style is going to be your best friend. Perfect for warmer and colder days, ankle boots are incredibly versatile.
Ankle Boots and Jeans
The common trend with this style is to tuck your jeans into your boots. But, I find this problematic with straight and slim fit jeans. As I go about my day they manage to wriggle out. If you don’t feel comfortable in skinny leg jeans, you can get an equally chic look by wearing your ankle boots under slightly flared jeans. It’s actually what I’m doing today!
Ankle Boots and Tights
This is a personal favourite of mine. As the weather drops I hold onto summer for dear life. But, even as I pack away my t-shirts and shorts I can smile knowing my dresses and skirts can stay with me all year round. Ankle boots worn with stockings, opaques, tights, thigh highs and knee highs are great for day or night. Wear a short skirt for a flirty urban look and a long skirt for a earthy bohemian vibe.
