Our pick of the best ankle boots for this season's autumnal outfits...
Ankle boots are a must have for any wardrobe. A staple garment that you’ll turn to time and time again: wear them with tights or leggings, with jeans or smart trousers and with skirts of any length. With a myriad of variations in a range of colours, materials and styles, it should be easy to find the right boots for you, yes? Well, we know different.
Finding the right ankle boots for your style and shape is difficult. They need to be the right style for you, the right shape for your figure and also fit in with your lifestyle. Will you be wearing them to work, to wear around the city or for nights out?
If you’re planning on wearing your new boots to work, you will mostly likely need a pair that offer your feet comfort and support while looking smart and stylish. If you want footwear for the weekend, perhaps you will choose a style that is more casual but still provide the comfort you need for days out.
Your figure and leg shape is also an important factor to consider when you choose a pair of any style shoes. If you have shapely legs, try and choose a footwear style that cuts below your anklebone, these will elongate your legs and compliment your figure. Similarly if you have a dainty figure and slim legs, large, thick soled boots are unlikely to suit and will look oversized. Instead, opt for a footwear style that has a classic, simple shape and will accentuate your slim pins!
