Ankle boots with dresses
September 12, 2017, 11:54 am

The time for styling your dress with sneakers has ended. The look was cool and easy for summer, but as of this moment, you need to challenge yourself with a dress and ankle boots combo. Now while this outfit combo seems easy in theory, putting together a look is actually a little hard.  To help you out, here are some tips to wear the two items together.

Go snazzy with your boots: To make your outfit stand out, don't go for that simple pair of ankle boots. You can go far with your style by taking a chance with multicolored and embellished shoes. Try something new this season with a pair of ankle booties adorned with a few stripes or other colorful details.

Prints galore:  If your outfit has an interesting print or cut, go for ankle boots with a similar texture or feel. You can really make your multi-print boho dress pop with booties in similar multi-colors.

Play in the same color family: Find a color in your dress that you would like to match to your shoes. You get added bonus points if you go the extra mile and style your boots with a pair of socks that match to your dress. When you are wearing a colorful dress, consider wearing an equally as colorful boot.

Go matchy-matchy with accessories: Another way to pull off the matchy-matchy look is to match a color in your shoes to that of your accessories. Say a cream-colored belt coordinated with your chunky ankle boots can make for a fun outfit.

Add on the layers:  An ankle boot plus dress is simple enough, so take it next level with a pair of tights and other relaxed outwear. An easy weekend outfit of a knit dress, oversize flannel, chunky scarf, and fedora can be updated with flat ankle boots. 

Opposites do wonders:  If your dress is a feminine style, go the complete opposite with your footwear. Pairing ultra-girly girl pieces with edgy booties is an easy way to strike a style balance that isn’t too pretty or too punky.

Strappy sandals may rule supreme when the warm weather rolls around, but pointed-toe ankle boots give new life to a festival-ready boho dress. Kickass steppers ground a summery look and establish a sense of balance that sandals and sneakers simply couldn’t provide.

Some fashionistas opt to play with color this season and style a bright dress with autumnal colored ankle booties. Most color combinations pair beautifully, as long as one chosen hue is bright, while the other remains slightly darker.

Simplicity also works: When you want to let the print or color of your dress shine, just wear a pair of black ankle boots. It won't distract from your look. White ankle boots are just the type to usher a fuss-free look straight into trendsetter territory.

Go classy: A body-con dress with heeled ankle boots is the perfect ensemble for short girls who want to look a little taller. Make a bolder statement in a brightly colored dress that is so very trendy with a pair of striking plunging booties.
