Celebrity Style Guide for Ankle Boots

Ankle Boots

An ankle boot should be versatile, comfortable and effortlessly stylish. With a slight heel, you should be able to dress it up or down - it should work with tights, bare legs, skinny jeans and leggings, and for a staple item opt for a neutral colour; think brown, black or grey to ensure you get your wear out of them.

Heeled Ankle Boots

Heeled ankle boots are a woman’s best friend in the winter months. Chic and stylish, the heel elongates the leg for a completely flattering finish, and enables you to work office chic and smart-casual glam all with one shoe. Perfect for rocking from meetings to a bar with the girls, a high-quality heeled ankle boot will be your best investment this season.
