How To: Wear Ankle Boots

This fall’s must-have ankle boot is slim fitting and hits about 1 to 2″ above your ankle bone – but don’t be afraid, it still goes with almost everything! Whether you’re marching off to work or spicing things up for a night on the town, these modern ankle boots will take you there. Available in a wide range of colours from wine tones to rich blues to olive greens and in a variety of materials like leather, suede or velvet, you’re sure to find your favourite. See how our ‘Girl in Focus,’ Tara Teng, styles these sleek ankle boots from ALDO.

Aurella Ankle Boots

Pointed toes and block heels are currently the rage and this boot fits the bill. Zipper back and modern euro shape works equally well with skirts as it does with your sexiest jeans. 4" block heel with a 5" shaft.

Available at Aldo $100*

Cropped Jumpsuit

Turn your favourite cropped jumpsuit into a fall staple with ankle boots. Not a fan of a jumpsuit, replace with cropped wide legged trousers and a blouse for a similar look.

Available at Le Chateau $139.95*

Exposed Zipper Skirt

Exposed zippers are everything this fall! For a modern twist on the classic short skirt-boot combo, pair with a more relaxed top or anything with bell sleeves.

Leana Exposed Zipper Skirt available at GUESS $79*; Bell Sleeve Top available at H&M $29.99*.

Oversized Sweater Dress

I LOVE a good sweater dress with boots. While thigh-high boots aren't going anywhere this fall, try pairing your favourite oversized sweater with a pair of ankle boots on sunny days and show off those gams.

Monk & Lou Selena Sweater Dress available at Plenty $119*.

Distressed Skinny Jeans

Ok, so side note (and I might be dating myself here): but remember when Silver jeans were all the rage? These are Silvers!! They are much softer, sleeker and more luxurious feeling than the originals, (and no giant "S" on the back pockets) and they're MADE IN CANADA!!

When it comes to wearing skinny jeans with ankle boots, you have three options - tuck them in, cuff them or crop them to the top of your boots. Cropped is definitely more on point BUT it does require a commitment to a specific length.

Silver Jeans Company Distressed Jeans available at Below the Belt $148*; NUDE Lace-Up Sweater available at Below the Belt $59*; OBEY Florentine Wide-Brimmed Hat available at Plenty $70*.

Mid-Length Skirt

Looking to update your skirt and sweater office uniform? Grab a longer skirt, add a wide belt, swap out your pumps for ankle boots - and bam, you're instantly on trend.

Mid-Length Skirt available at H&M $39.99*, Lord & Taylor Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater available at Hudson's Bay $189*; Wide Belt available at Le Chateau $35*.
