After a crazy week with some exams, homework, and a return from a trip to Madrid (which I’ll talk to you about very son, I promise), today I return with a post on the ‘’How to wear’’ series. It’s time to talk about ankle boots. I’m sure you’ve seen them all over blogs, and magazines and lots of fashion weeks but, first of all… What are exactly these types of booties?
As their name say, ankle boots are a type of footwear which top reaches approximately ankle length. Nowadays we can find them on multiple materials, shapes, high or low heeled, colors, etc. They can be worn in lot of ways, but be careful! If paired inappropriately they can make you look shorter. I discovered them about a year and a half ago, because I never used to wear them before. I mostly used to wear flats or high boots, just on the extremes. But I must admit, ankle boots have become one of my basic garments, because they’re very versatile and easy to wear and pair on the go.
Talking about ankle boots, I’ve been looking around for online shops to show you great ideas and examples. New Look has a great gallery of ankle boots, for all fashion tastes and budgets. Most of their booties are leather made, and they have a great quality and design. Specifically, I want to feature this four booties below, basically because this models are really similar to some pairs I have on my closet, and which I must admit, have saved my life sometimes when didn’t know what to put on that day. Let’s call them the basics when talking about booties.

Depending on the shades of the booties, I’d usually wear military trend with a pair of cool jeans and a military jacket, but with black garments could also look great. The fur on this booties and the high heel on them makes this outfit really versatile for day or even a night out. Keep in mind that for not making this outfit overdone, don’t put too many accessories on it. A headband or a pair of cute bracelets may be enough. YAY!
