How To: Wear Ankle Boots

 My obsession with boots started when I was about 14 years old. I remember making a deal with my mum that should I make a certain mark in my exams she would buy me a pair of boots. And that's when I got my first boots which I absolutely loved and wore until they were falling apart. Over the years, my love affair with boots has grown. While at different stages of my life I preferred different leg-lengths and heel sizes, I can safely say that this is one shoe type that has remained a staple in my closet.
These days I am obsessed with ankle boots. I can't get enough of them. I love them in all colours and styles and were I to give in to the shopaholic in me, I would buy them in all colours and styles. Ankle boots haven't always been the easiest for me to wear. At first I struggled to understand them, to learn how to wear them with anything from skirts to dresses and pants but over the years, and after reading countless fashion blogs, I think I finally understand these shoes.
Below are a few outfit ideas I have loved on how to incorporate ankle boots in your wardrobe.

 1. With a mini dress
I like this outfit for warm days. Ankle boots paired with a short free dress and maybe a light jacket. This is a great outfit for weekends spent doing errands or hanging with the girls.

2. With a maxi dress 
Whether your maxi dress has a side slit or not, a pair of ankle boots will be a good change from the usual flats or heels. When worn with maxis, dress or skirt, ankle boots won't bulge from underneath.

3. With tights
This has got to be my go-to cold weather outfit. See I like shorter hemlines and love pairing them with tights when the temperatures drop. This scallopped hem is absolutely gorgeous, no?

4. With cropped pants 
I have to say this is one pairing that I have never thought of. I usually like my pants cropped (or folded) when it's warmer but wearing them with ankle boots is sure to be a good experiment.

5. With skinny jeans
If you've been following this blog since it's inception, you will know that this is one of those outfits that I fall back on over and over again. And I learned a nice tutorial on how to wear your jeans or skinny trousers with ankle boots. Check it out:
