Is it OK to wear ankle boots all year round?
Posted: May 19 2015
So, it is the time of year when we feel we should be putting away our boots in favour of sandals and flip flops. STOP! Don’t be in a rush. It is a common misconception that we can’t wear are beloved boots during the spring and summer months.
Ankle boots, unlike the longer styles of boots, can work with a range of spring/summer outfits and, in fact make a bold fashion statement.
So, before you put your ankle boots into hibernation here are 5 ways you can wear them this season.
Ankle boots with skirts
A midi skirt teamed with a heeled pair of ankle boots and a long line cardigan will create a flowy, romantic look. Team it with a satchel or hard framed bag for a girl about town edge.
For a young, fun vibe marry a pair of cute, flat ankle boots with a skater skirt. If it's not quite warm enough to get you legs out this look is great with opaque tights too.
For and edgy look, a fitted mini skirt looks great with high rise ankle boots. Another combination that looks great with tights too.
Ankle boots with dresses
Neutral coloured ankle boots blend in beautifully with a flirty, floral dress. Add a solid coloured jacket or blazer to give this look a professional edge and show that you mean business in the workplace.
Ideally when wearing ankle boots your hemline should fall short, showing them off. When wearing your boots with a maxi dress this can be difficult. Try to show off the boots with a dress with a split to create a sassy, multifunctional look.
For an on trend, sexy evening look, pair your ankle boots with a bodycon dress and a leather or denim jacket and some chunky jewellery.

Does any other shoe look this good with leggings? Ankle boots and leggings were just made to be together with long line t-shirts, a mens style shirt or if you dare a sexy crop top. Provided you have your boots and leggings on together, anything goes on top for any season.
Opaque tights can be switched for a pair of cropped leggings to tie in with your ankle boots for an up to date spring/summer look.
Ankle boots with shorts
A classic look for a pair of biker style ankle boots. If the weather permits bare those legs and throw on a slouchy style top for a casual everyday look.
To look chic and tailored opt for a fitted top and some bold accessories. The addition of opaque tights with a mid heel ankle boot with elongate your legs too.
Ankle boots with trousers
Ankle boots and jeans are a match made in heaven. Any style of ankle boot will live side by side in harmony with your favourite denim. If you favour slouchy style jeans, roll them up or fold them over to show the top of your boots. Bang on trend.
When wearing skinny fit trousers or jeans make sure they go into the boots. Layer up with scarves and cardigans or an open shirt for cosy, comfy style.
Your ankle boots are also a great alternative to the court shoe or pump look in the office. Wear your straight or wide leg trousers over the top of your boots and hey presto!
