Casual Outfit: White T-shirt, Oatmeal Cardigan (runs big, order 1-2 sizes down. I’m in an XS), BlankNYC Jeans, Franco Sarto Ankle Boots (mine are from last season so they’re slightly different), Similar Leather Tote Bag, Karen Walker Sunglasses
As we head into boot weather, this is a question you guys frequently ask: How do I wear ankle boots with my jeans?
I’ve teamed up with Nordstrom today to share two outfits, casual and a little dressed up, and two different styles of jeans and boots. Plus I’ll share a few tips for styling any ankle boot with jeans.
Look one is a casual everyday kind of look for fall, with a pair of comfy jeans, a basic tee, a slouchy cardigan sweater, and a pair of 1″ ankle boots. Add a big bag and some sunglasses, and it’s an easy momiform look for cooler weather.
STYLING TIP: For low heeled ankle boots, let 1-2 inches of your ankle show above the ankle boot. If your jeans touch your boots, it gives you a shorter appearance. So give your jeans a little cuff or two! These tips apply to boyfriend jeans too.
Look two is a dressed up date night look. I love this lace up sleeve sweater, and am obsessed with these button up jeans. I paired them with a pair of heeled ankle boots and a small bag for a dressier feel.
STYLING TIP: Heeled ankle boots automatically give you a lift, so your skinny jeans can be longer and it won’t shorten the look of your leg in the same way. No need to cuff, but don’t tuck them in. You can also wear boyfriend jeans with these, but leave a little skin gap between your boots and pants.
note: these tips will vary slightly depending on your body type and the style of jeans and ankle boots, but they’re a good basic guide. If you have questions about specific pairings, leave a comment below!
