Really looking forward to seeing blue skies again come fall. It feels apocalyptic here. This was so helpful as I purchased my first pair of ankle boots a few weeks ago. I was wondering what type of socks you wear with these if they show a good amount of your foot. When it gets cold, sometimes skip the ankle boots in favor of knee-high or over the knee boots, or I wear trouser socks with the taller ankle boots, when my jeans cover them.
Jo Lynne, I have purchased 3 pairs of boyfriend jeans. They are rather baggy and loose but they are very comfortable. I wear the with a belt and tucked in T shirt. Should I cuff the jeans and just show off my booties? Yes, I think boyfriend jeans generally look better cuffed. I almost included a look with boyfriend jeans and ankle boots. I can go back and add it. This is the best example I have: I always love seeing different ways to wear ankle boots like this, Jo-Lynne.
I think my favorite way lately is with dresses because it seems modern. My mom always complains about the cutting off the leg line. I had to get used to the look. I used to think it looked so clunky and stupid. I mean, I really hated it. I think it has to be done right, though. And with the taller boots, I feel like I can wear somewhat shorter skirts yet not feel sleazy!! Yes, I also like sock booties for that reason!
I have pinned this post so I easily can revisit it. Enjoy your last pool days. I especially love wearing my black suede booties with black tights and skirts or even pretty formal dresses. I love the edginess of a formal-ish dress with booties!
This post is great. The only question I have is what kind of socks do you wear w ankle boots? This was very helpful. Posts like this help us pull it all together. This is such a helpful post! I love seeing the booties with all the types of jeans I bought at the nsale and how they are styled with skirts and dresses too. I am excited for bootie weather but not what comes after fall. I have to say, that when I see a woman wearing ankle boots with ultra short pant length i.

Debbie — August 20, 9: Who knows what happened … maybe I just saw too many bloggers looking fabulous in them that I could no longer resist? But now I own four pairs and practically live in them.
There are so many fun ones out there: Tucking your pants into your ankle boots creates a long, lean leg line. Rolled or double cuffed jeans are a cute look with booties and allow for a little bit of your ankle to show through, and highlighting that skinny area down there and keeping your ankles from looking wide.
This look works best with skinny jeans. Straight-legged or wider-legged jeans shorten your leg line when rolled. When wearing jeans with booties, an exposed ankle is key to keeping your ankles looking as slim as possible. One of the ways to create this gap between the jeans and boots is a cuffed hem.
Try this look with a longer pair of skinny jeans, rather than an ankle length pair. A larger cuff inches tall is more flattering. One of my favorite looks when pairing jeans with booties is the half cuff. But layered over leggings makes for a cute wintery look. Go for a neutral-colored sock to avoid drawing too much attention down there.
Shorter socks as opposed to knee-length socks are easier to pull of as well. There is less to bunch, and therefore less bulk. A monochromatic look is a great way to wear those taller ankle boots. But a pair of black tights and a black pencil skirt creates a sleek long black line that makes it so the height of the boot is irrelevant.
Try a fun patterned top to offset the monochromatic bottom! Try brown tights with brown boots, gray with gray, or mustard with your light brown boots! Although the previous look shows tights, this look shows colorful tights, which are a great way to incorporate some color into your outfit. Like I mentioned before, socks are super trendy this year.

If your jeans are too long to really show off your boots in the best light, fold the hem inwards and tuck them in, so that the fold is invisible. One of the ways to create this gap between the jeans and boots is a cuffed hem. Tip #3. Try this look with a longer pair of skinny jeans, rather than an ankle length pair.
