Get the Boot

How to Wear Different Heights of Boots
“The (Ankle) Boot is on the Other Foot”
            The ankle boot, otherwise known as “the bootie”, is a great shoe that can be paired with almost any outfit. Your “bootie” is a match made in heaven with either long or short skirts. It’s perfect if you’re looking to raise the hemline and show off a little leg, while still being able to sport sturdy and warm footwear for the weather. If you want to wear pants in cooler temperatures, do not worry about finding the right style of pant. With ankle boots you can tuck in your tight pants without worrying about the bulk and bulge of a knee-high-boot and the wider-legged pants you own look stylish over the top of the ankle boot. But just remember wide legged pants don’t tuck into your booties.
“Tough as an Old (Above-the-Ankle) Boot”
            The middle of the calf can be an awkward place for a boot to fall, but to prevent this style of boot from looking rough and tough, try pairing it with a more feminine silhouette. Look no further, the perfect match for your above-the-ankle boot is your cropped pants. The incredibly slim fit of the shoe gives you that contoured shape of the pant leaving you with a season-less clothing item. If you are dying to wear a skirt with your mid-calf boots, stick with the rule of making sure the skirt ends at the knee.
“Shaking in my (Knee-High) Boots”
            When worn well a knee-high boot can be shear elegance. Its ability to almost be paired with anything makes it desirable for your closet. Worn with any skirt that is long enough to cover just the top of your boots is a very flattering look. However, if you find yourself wanting to wear a short skirt, it’s a great way to get to wear your mini in cooler weather since you get to cover most of your legs with the boots. Or this look can be very cute with tights. Skinny jeans or wider legged pants are both great looks with a pair of knee-high boots. Looking to elongate your legs? Tuck in your skinny jeans and have legs for days! Or wear the boots under wider legged pants for a stylish look. (This look is best with a heel on the boot.)
“Die in One’s (Above-the-Knee) Boots”

            If you are looking to rock a confident and eye-catching look, you’ll want to own a pair of thigh-high boots. A very common look with above-the-knee boots is a short dress or skirt. The tall silhouette of the shoe brings the eye up and adds a flirty touch. Try wearing your thigh-high boots with sheer, black tights and a pair of shorts for a fashion-forward look. For a more elongated look, pair your above-the-knee boots with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings. Your legs will look super long and it will enhance your look! However, be sure to not wear pants that aren't tight enough or you’ll get unwanted bunching in your boots.
