Style || How to Wear Ankle Boots Two Ways

Once autumn rolls around, I mostly set aside my trusty summer ballet flats and live in boots for the rest of the year. Flat boots, ankle books, riding boots. I have them all (usually in brown) and I love them. Boots are genuinely one of my favourite things about fall, no matter how shallow and sad that might seem. 

I received these gorgeous House of Fraser ankle boots and knew that there were so many different ways to style them that they were going to become staples in my cold-weather wardrobe this year. 

My biggest tip when it comes to wearing ankle boots with jeans is to cuff your jeans right above the top of the boot. Don’t wear your skinny jeans tucked into the boot like you would with a riding boot, nor should you cuff them too high. When wearing them with thick winter socks, let a bit of the sock show in between the cuff of the boot and the top of the jean leg. 

With dresses, things are a lot more straight-forward. Just throw on a pair of black tights and they look seasonally appropriate with most dresses!

  • Angie SilverSpoon

    They look great with the dress

  • your hair is just beautiful at the moment, I’ve got major hair envy! I’ve just bought some very similar boots, but I feel like I should have splashed out a bit more in the hope that they last a bit longer! Alice xx

    I love how versatile they are and look great both with the dress and jeans. Honestly, I spend all my fall and winter in pants/jeans just because it so cold, so I guess it is definitely my stable :boring: ! xoxo, nano

  • Girl, that striped tee & jean combo is heavenly!

  • I love your style! This fall might be when I finally buy brown boots. One of my favorite ways to wear my black boots (higher than ankle, lower than mid-calf) is with fun knee socks and a dress. That was one of my outfits for engagement photos!

    • I find my brown boots so versatile (though I do have brown knee length ones as well) so I think they are a totally valid fall investment, but I’m a bit biased 😉 x

  • Love love love that dress! I can’t wait to not have swollen feet so I can fit them into normal shoes! Oh the joys of pregnancy!

  • That first look is my weekend staple! Love a good turn-up and love your stripey top! =)

  • I need new ankle boots. In fact, I need to go through all my shoes and throw away all the stuff that has been destroyed by wear. I really like the brown ones, like you have here. They make everything seem a little more grown up 🙂

    • Aside from converse, I pretty much only own brown shoes. It just makes getting ready a little bit easier 😉 x

  • Lovely boots! I bought a pair like that recently and love them so much! However, the little elastic bit on each sides of the ankles always rubs and gives me blisters and I don’t know how to deal with that with jeans. So with tights it is! 🙂

    • So far I haven’t gotten any blister from mine so fingers crossed it stays that way. (Famous last words though, right?) xx
