Dresses and ankle boots combo can look super chic and is definitely one that is favored by fashion crowd. But what makes it chic is not only the items themselves but also how you wear the ankle boots with a dress. When styling ankle boots with dresses, the most important thing is to make sure that the proportions are just right.
This combination can sometimes distort the silhouette, so to assure a stylish and streamlined look, you need to play with the length of the dress and the height of the ankle boots to see what proportions work for you.
Below you can find some of our favorite styling suggestions:
Ruffled dress and our 581 ankle boots: this is the perfect way to wear your favorite summer dress into fall. Notice the neutral tones of this look: the taupe shade of the ankle boots perfectly flatters the dress color. The proportions are meant to make your legs look longer: the boots are cut just above the ankle but not cling to it, while the dress ends just above the knee, that means you will show quite a bit of the leg, and it looks slimmer at the ankle. This creates long and lean silhouette. Complete the look with a camel coat for a chic autumn look.
Midi dress and our 574 ankle boots: a casual yet stylish way to wear a midi dress.
The deep bordeaux color of the dress is complemented by the grey color of the ankle boots. The denim jacket breaks the look, adding a more casual twist and making it perfect for day to night. In terms of silhouette: notice how the dress is more fitted, which can be tricky as you show less of the leg, however the booties color is light and neutral and the fit of the shaft designed to be a bit wider, creating a leaner looking leg shape.
When wearing a slip dress (the trendiest of the 3, and probably already a staple in your closet), the idea is to make it look modern and fresh, which is why we paired this slick black number with the chunkier 934 ankle boots. The combination makes this look work for day as well as the evening, making it more effortless and casual. In this case, the dress is longer so you really just get a glimpse of the leg, which creates a flattering and streamlined look. An unexpected addition of a classic off white trench completes the look.
