Women's ankle boots for versatile winter style
Every woman's winter wardrobe needs a few pairs of boots. Ankle boots are a fun alternative to longer styles. Some are designed specifically to be worn under a pair of trousers, while others can go over the top of skinny jeans or tights to make a statement. That's particularly true if they have some interesting detailing, such as unusually shaped uppers, or a fur-trimmed cuffs. They're ideal for those days which aren't quite cold enough for long boots – or, if you have wider calves, they give you the chance to try the boot look without any problems. Choose classic leather or suede, or try something a bit new and different. To complete your winter outfit, try and pair your ankle boots with a suitable winter jacket or winter coat!
How to show off a pair of booties
The easiest way to make your ankle boots shine is by wearing them over a pair of pants or leggings. If you've gone for black boots, then choose a contrasting colour: Black boots and black tights can disappear into each other, so you'll lose the visual interest in your look. Instead, put a pair of tan boots on over black tights, or mix black tights with blue skinny jeans. Don't forget that colourful tights can make your boots pop, too. You don't have to go for full-on neon colours, either. Burgundy and mustard yellow are great winter colours that make the perfect background to a stylish pair of booties. If your boots are an unusual colour, though, it's best to stick to plain neutrals on the lower half of your body. Red boots with blue tights is a look that most women would struggle to pull off!
Unusual ways to rock your ankle boots
Women's ankle boots aren't just for winter! If you want to wear yours through the autumn and spring, there are some fun, modern ways to style them with a twist. For example, try your favourite pair of ankle boots with a short, feminine dress. You can leave your legs bare if the weather is warm enough, or put on a pair of nude tights. If you really want to look different, rock black boots with a long, floaty maxi dress. For best results, choose one with a handkerchief or hi-low hem, so your boots will peek through and make a statement. Finish the look with a denim jacket for a style that's edgy and fresh - and when it gets colder, simply choose a denim jacket that has teddy lining and you're instantly prepared for cold weather!
