A year-round staple, ankle boots are a must in every wardrobe. A sleek black pair will go with practically everything in your work wardrobe, and can carry into your weekend wear when worn with a floral mini dress, denim shorts or leggings. You can go high-heeled or low, buckled or zip, print or solid—the options are endless! There’s an ankle boot to go with every outfit. For summer, you can pick cutout or perforated booties. In winter, faux-fur or shearling ankle boots will keep you cozy. These are shoes that you definitely need to round out your everyday look.

Can I wear socks with ankle boots?

Ankle boots can be worn with all kinds of socks, depending on the rest of your outfit. Stockings and leggings both pair very well with booties while warming you up. A simple jersey bodycon dress will look dressier with a pair of lace tights and high heel ankle boots! You can even wear socks of varying lengths with a cutout pair of the versatile shoe. Try knee-high socks for a playful edge or ankle socks for quirky yet fashion-forward style.

What goes with ankle boots?

There’s an ankle boot to fit any taste—rocker, boho, dressy, you name it. These fashionable shoes come in lengths that vary from ankle-grazing to combat boots! More casual than sneakers but not as formal as pumps, booties make outfits look put together and effortless. Slip into ankle boots with skinny jeans or leggings and a slouchy top. Go for the soft and edgy look by wearing combat boots with a floral print romper and porkpie hat. High heel shooties are a great, and often more comfortable, alternative to stilettos for nights out on the town. Aside from the extremes of super casual or evening wear, ankle boots will go with just about anything.

What are some outfit ideas to wear with fold-over lace-up booties?

Fold-over lace-up boots look similar to combat boots but are softened by the fabric detail of what’s on the inside. We’ve seen these fold-over military styles reveal floral prints, crochet lace, shearling and the ever-popular plaid. For everyday ease, wear them with jeans and a snuggly sweater or tunic. Slip a pair on with an a-line mini skirt, blouse, blazer and tights for an outfit that’s preppy with a twist.
