Ankle boots are one of my all-time-favorite shoe styles for two reasons. The first is that they’re incredibly versatile. When it comes to my more casual outings, like grabbing lunch with a friend, running errands, or shopping on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I’ll pair them with jeans or shorts. To attend high-brow dinners and work events, I’ll pair them with polished skirts and dresses. Ankle boots are one of the few shoe styles that look good with just about anything while suiting just about any situation. In other words, they’re foolproof.
The second reason I love ankle boots so much is that they’re the ultimate transitional item, which is why I find myself reaching for them especially around this time of year when late summer is rolling into early autumn. One day, it’s hot and humid; the next day, it’s breezy and there’s a chill in the air. Ankle boots are my favorite footwear solution to this shifting and, at times, frustrating weather.
Some of the most stylish celebrities seem to agree with me because they’ve been spotted wearing their ankle boots with pride (I’m talking about A-listers like Hailey Bieber, Kim Kardashian West, and more).
