One of the most common mistakes I see is people wearing the wrong type of ankle boot. As a result, I thought a post to guide you through choosing the right style for your outfit might be a good idea.
Ankle boots and dresses
In this situation, it is especially important to choose the right style of the dress or skirt. You also need to make sure that your boots will be seen as appropriate for the occasion.
For example, if you are wearing a sophisticated, tailored dress or skirt suit, a pair of close fitting, fine leather ankle boots with a low stiletto could actually work. But, this style of boots would not look good paired with a floaty, light summer dress.
This picture of K.T Tunstall is a great example of how to wow with ankle boots and a skirt. When you are trying to pair this type of footwear with a dress, you just need to be careful.
By far the best way to find out what works for you is to go shopping in your lunch hour to try on a few and see what looks good with your work outfits. Some boots finish at the ankle, others an inch or so above. You will be surprised what a difference an inch or two makes to the overall look, so try all options.

Must have ankle boots for your wardrobe
When it comes to styling black ankle boots are the best, they are extremely versatile, and will go with many different outfits. Therefore, if you are on a tight budget, and can only afford one pair my advice would be to buy a black pair.
