Ankle boots are practical, fashionable and they look so good too! But they didn’t actually become popular until the 1960s when they were more commonly referred to as go-go boots. Over the years they have become a staple part of everyone’s wardrobe and out of all the boot styles, ankle boots are the most favoured and these days look great with skinny jeans, casual trousers and so much more, just like Rachel Bilson and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wear them.
There are loads of styles around this season, and this includes the classic ankle boot with mid-heel, cowboy boot or shoe boot and then there’s the trendier jelly boots, trainer boots, wedges and light coloured Chelsea boots which seem to be the next big thing in the fashion stakes.
Materials are varied too. At one time you could only buy boots made from leather, suede or plastic but now you are spoilt for choice with additions such as PVC, metallics, animal prints and fabrics, some even embellished with studs, fur, leopard print, buckles, stylish buttons, laces, tassels and even glitter. Just have a look at the vast variety of trendy boots worn by celebrities:
Ankle boots are popular and there are many reasons why women love to wear them. The main reason of course, is because they are comfortable, durable and great to wear in all types of weather. Boots like this suede easy-to-wear boot is a versatile fashion accessory and a must have necessity to any girls’ wardrobe! They come in different colours and are easy to pair with fashion accessories.
Fashion houses predicted the return of the white stiletto this coming season but many fashionistas are hanging on to their ankle boots for that little bit longer until the weather warms up this spring. Light colour ankle boots are the next big thing, and this is especially true of stylish brown boots – they look so good with summer frocks too!
So how do you wear your light colour summer boots? Well, ankle boots look great under trousers and jeans whatever the weather is doing, but as it gets warmer they look fabulous with dresses and skirts teamed with tights in bright or neutral tones.
Nowadays, ankle boots are not only reserved for daytime wear. Heeled or glitzy designs are also popular with evening wear and can look great with dresses or smart trousers or with leggings and tunics for a laid back street look.
Women have loved ankle boots for decades and it’s hardly surprising – they’re superb fashion accessories that you can wear casually or for smarter occasions. You can find ankle boots of every kind, platforms, wedges, studded designs, strappy ankle boots and chunky ones that look brilliant with skinny jeans.
