An ode to Fall’s finest ankle booties

13 October 2015

Let’s be honest, we all love a good booty. What? Yes. Booties for fall are nothing new. Equivalent to the quintessential display of floral patterns that rear their petals at us just about every year, a fall wardrobe just wouldn’t make sense without the perfect pair of ankle-high booties. There’s something subtle about the way they wouldn’t dare peak past the ankles, yet provide enough statement to make your most nonchalant pair of jeans seem a la mode.

From mod minis to floor-length duster coats, a simple pair of black ankle boots functionally compliment just about any piece in your fall wardrobe – or any season’s wardrobe, for that matter.

Check out two different ways to rock fall’s finest this season:

For a long Monday: Feeling tired, lazy and totally dispirited on a Monday morning? Brighten things up by playing up an oversized snuggie-esque cardigan with a cool pair of boots and runway-approved backpack.
