Saturday, September 13, by Jessica Booth. A leather belt that matches your boots can be a cute way to accent your footwear. You can also add simple embellishments like pearl earrings, a pearl necklace, or a lace headband to personalize your look. Find a pair of suede or leather ankle boots with tassels. Often ankle boots have zippers on the sides that can have tassels attached to them. You can also choose ankle boots with a fringe that runs along the top opening of the boot. Sport a high-waisted bottom of some sort.
This can either be shorts, a skirt, or pants, as long as your bottom piece is high-waisted and fastens above your navel. If you choose pants, make sure that they fit tightly. Pair with a tank top or any style blouse and tuck it in. If you choose a pattern for your bottom piece, choose a solid for your top piece.
If it is cold outside, put a jean jacket over your shirt, as long as you are not wearing denim pants. Add a belt around your waist where your shirt and bottom piece meet. Doing so will cause your waist to appear smaller. Finish off with a pair of wayfarer sunglasses.
You may also want to add a headband or ribbon of some sort. Not Helpful 2 Helpful 1. Not Helpful 0 Helpful 0. Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered.
Already answered Not a question Bad question Other. Quick Summary For a great everyday outfit, pair ankle boots with a pair of skinny jeans cuffed just above the top of the boot. Did this summary help you? Warnings Don't wear flowing, calf-length skirts with ankle boots.
The combination of the long skirt and ankle boots will make your legs appear short and stubby. Avoid wearing ankle boots with slouchy jeans. You can't tuck the jeans into the boots and your pants will just look loose and sloppy. Tips The looser the boot is at the top, the longer and leaner your legs will look. You can also cuff your skinny jeans at the top of your ankle boots for a casual feel.
Consider incorporating at least one colored or patterned accent piece into your outfit. Too many solid pieces can end up feeling plain and dull. But first, a caveat. Do not rely on retail websites to show the proper styling of boots and jeans.
However, I found a couple examples that I believe got it right. Here is an example I think shows too much space between the jean and the boots. In this next example, the hem of the jeans extends over the shaft of the ankle boot by about an inch, allowing for a smooth transition, even though there is high contrast between the mid-wash denim and the black booties.
This works without shortening the line of the leg too much, especially because the higher rise extends the jeans a couple inches at the top, compensating for the shorter leg length. This is why it works best to wear a cropped top or to just tuck in the top when wearing cropped jeans.
I find the shorter, boxy tops look best on me because I can leave them untucked. See the example above. I think this look also works well because the high-heeled, pointy-toe ankle boot is slimming and helps to visually lengthen the line of the leg.
A flat boot might not work as well. The most important factor when wearing ankle boots with bootcut jeans is the length of the jeans.
I also think bootcut jeans look best with a pointy-toe boot or shoe because it elongates the leg, but you can wear them with a rounded toe if you prefer. I also prefer my bootcut jeans with heels, but again, flats are an option, but in that case a pointy toe definitely helps. Often the models wearing the jeans are too tall for the jeans they are modeling, but I rounded up an example that I think got it right. Of course they are showing them with pumps, but they should look the same with booties.
When pairing ankle boots with cropped bootcut jeans , the rules for the straight crop jeans apply. Ankle boots are a great way to update a classic skirt outfit. To keep a long, lean line, go for a monochromatic look. I tried this look with a denim skirt and really liked it. Also, the shaft is high and rather narrow, keeping my ankles looking slim, so they work well with skirts and dresses. Sock booties are also trending right now, and they work best with dresses or cropped straight jeans.
In theory, these chop up the line of the leg, but somehow the proportions seem to work because the dress is shorter, showing more leg. So there you go!

Dec 17, · Tuck long jeans into your ankle boots. If your jeans are a little long, it’s an option to tuck them into your boots. Tucking your jeans works better if your boots are on the taller side for ankle boots—like boots that rise just above your ankles%(29). If you don’t want to wear skinny jeans, pair ankle boots with trouser jeans, but go for a pointier toe. For skirts and dresses, aim for hems that hit at your knee or slightly above. If the boot is high, pair it with same colored tights to extend the leg line.
