Shoes can become your great ally to complement your look and sometimes they can be the protagonists of all your outfit, the secret is to know the correct way to combine them. Ankle boots, for example, can be worn almost any time of the year.

You can find them with or without heels, depending on the style you like the most, and yes, we never have enough of them. These are 15 tips for you to wear your ankle boots throughout the year.

Choose the right heel: High-heeled ankle boots help you create a more elegant outfit. Jeans can give you a country look in the Daisy style of the Dukes of Hazzard. The wedge ones are more versatile and excellent for an urban and casual style.

Wear them with jeans: On hot days, fold your jeans up to the ankle, choose booties that have a round toe and are low-heeled or completely flat. Just make sure your jeans aren’t wide-legged, as you’ll end up with a sloppy look that you probably don’t want to show off.

During the fall choose waterproof boots: This will prevent the rain from ruining them and you will be able to walk on the puddles without fear of damaging them.

You can also wear them with an evening look: Wear them with pencil skirts to emphasize your figure, but remember that they should reach just above the ankle and be wider than your legs, to avoid them looking shorter.

Choose patent leather ankle boots to look sophisticated: Combined with dress pants, you will have a very fashionable office look.

Do not combine colored ankle boots with socks: Especially if they are black, since opaque colors will only make your legs look shorter.

Maxi skirts or maxi dresses match perfectly with them: Make sure they have side slits to show them off better.

Treads type Chelsea: If you are going to attend a casual meeting, the best option is Chelsea boots, perfect to wear with jeans or skirts. And they are ideal for all types of climates: rainy, hot or cold.

You can also wear semi-sports boots: Leather hiking boots will give your ankle superior support. You can wear them with thick pants, denim shirts, plaid shirts, or sweaters.

Let the short booties be the protagonists: Wear wacky or animal print short ankle boots with shorts and neutral colors to make them look 100%.

Choose neutral colors: Black and brown ankle boots will blend more easily with your entire wardrobe.

You can also wear them with shorts: Just make sure the top of the booties is wider, if it’s thin your legs will look shorter.

Dresses or midi skirts are also perfect for ankle boots: Dresses or midi skirts will make you look elegant. Take into account that if you wear a summer dress during the fall you can add a denim or leather jacket.

Leggings are your best ally: It is generally best to wear leggings that are black in color. Add loose tops to make your legs look longer.

During the winter combine them with thick sweaters: Brown ankle boots with a cream or ivory sweater and jeans are the perfect winter look.
