As the fall season is beginning, people are turning to warmer clothing and shoes. Ankle boots are a popular trend that shows style and comfort.

“Ankle boots are a great transition from fall to winter, you can also wear short boots during both of those seasons,” sophomore Anaïs Cabello said.

Whether flat, platform, studded or suede-there’s an ankle boot out there for every taste.

Ankle boots are also easy to pair with a skirt, leggings, pants, and jeans.

“Ankle boots are really casual and are a smaller version of riding boots so they are perfect for fall,” sophomore Caroline Veraldo said.

Whether they are flat or heeled, ankle boots and long skirts or maxi skirts are classic combinations for fall. The key is to show no leg.

The advantage of wearing ankle boots over shoes or taller boots is that you get ankle coverage without the bulk of a knee-high boot.

“I love ankle boots because if you want to wear regular boots, but it is a little too warm for them, you can wear ankle boots; they are the perfect option,” sophomore Lily Retford said.

They are the most versatile shoes one can wear. Ones with studs or metal detailing are the perfect choice to add edge to any outfit. They are also a chic alternative to a classic pump or dress shoe. They offer a lot of comfort but still remain a statement.
