Boots with narrow heels give an illusion of greater height, making them ideal for shorter figures, but a willowy frame can get away lower heels without losing that statuesque appearance. Typically, I prefer to wear A-line skirts with ankle boots, since the fullness of the skirt makes my feet and ankles look smaller when wearing boots, but pencil skirts can definitely be worn as well and look great. Add some glamour to an everyday t-shirt and jeans outfit by finishing the look off with a pair of open toe heeled sandals.
Like I mentioned before, socks are super trendy this year. And although I tend to have a hard time pulling off the look, I have to admit that they look so cool on other people. If your skin is light and your socks are dark, they will cut off the line of your leg and create weird proportions. When wearing socks with bare legs, keep your skirt or dress hemline above the knee. Anything longer will also cut off the line of the leg and make your legs look short. Pairing booties with a dress is a fun and non-obvious choice.
I like pairing my military style boots with a dress for an interesting juxtaposition. Again, keep the hem of your dress above your knee to create the longest leg line possible.
Typically, I prefer to wear A-line skirts with ankle boots, since the fullness of the skirt makes my feet and ankles look smaller when wearing boots, but pencil skirts can definitely be worn as well and look great. Wear a neutral pair of ankle boots with a slimmer and more fitted skirt. Darker boots draw the eye down toward your feet and can make the outfit feel bottom heavy.

And it's largely thanks to this gal's deep-V stilettos, which show just the right amount of toe cleavage. Photo via Lady Mortiarty in Paris. For a decidedly hip look, top off your skinny black jeans with a set of thick socks, rolled at the ankle, and a pair of cognac lace-up Oxfords. We're not implying that this was intentional, but we love how this gal's tasseled loafers match the color of her hair. And she's showing just the right amount of skin at her ankle.
To make a statement, pair a geometric printed bootie with a pair of slim trousers and a colored coat. This gal's cool pair of bi-tonal boots picks up the colors of both her skinnies and her leather bomber. A rounded toe black boot with a low heel is adds just the right amount of height to a very casual, but very stylish, look. An excellent example of the naked sandal done right: Going for a more sporty appeal than dressy one is a perfectly legitimate option, of course.
Slip-on sneakers are going to be all the rage this spring, but there's alway the more traditional lace-up option, too. And if the Chanel Couture show is to be believed , sneakers might just be the new heels. No one ever said you have to go sky-high when you wear heels.
This pair, which are almost but not quite kitten height are just as stylish as a set of gargantuan stilettos. A nude, pointy ballet flat: With sneakers all the rage at the moment , this gal does a fantastic job of rocking a neon fuchsia and offsetting it with a cool, relatively neutral print on her sweater.
An example of socks-and-shoes done well: If stiletto pumps are a bit girly for your taste, or just a bit uncomfortable for your taste, a pair of moto boots will do the trick. Black on black will ramp up your badass factor, but they will work with classic blue jeans too.
And the more buckles, the better. Share Facebook Pinterest Twitter Tumblr.
Best Boots to Wear with Skinny Jeans. There are so many footwear options with skinnies. And boots and skinny jeans are one of my favorite styling combos. Being as tight as they are, skinnies pair perfectly with anything from a lower ankle boots to the higher of thigh highs. Skinny jeans and flat, slouchy boots look best with a tunic or a longer, billowy shirt. For a more urban, edgy look, pair the sleek, cowboy-inspired ankle boots with modified vintage T-shirts and vests, short leather jackets or vintage-look blazers. Wearing skinny jeans with ankle boots is a great way to create an unbroken leg line, for a long and lean silhouette, especially when you match your jeans color to the shade of your ankle boots. For the skinniest effect, try wearing a pair of skinny, inky black jeans with black suede or matte black leather ankle boots.
