How to wear ankle boots when you really don’t like them

Do you ever feel like that creature in the Dr Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham?

I do, when fashion-types serve up the same trend season to season that I don’t like.  Makes me wanna stomp my feet and yell:

I do not like them Sam-I-am!

 

For me, ankle boots were one of those trends.

They continue to be offered up in magazines as a mainstream shoe option, yet for a long time I’ve refused to try them as common sense tells me these babies are going to make my legs look stumpy.

And then me, look frumpy.

 

Ankle boots

 

But then I decided it was time to try ankle boots for myself and see what all the sartorial hype was about.

 

So I pinched my nose, and squeezed my eyes closed really tight, and took a huge bite of ankle boot.

 The black leather ECCO Pearl ankle boots I bravely tried.

I’ve discovered that ankle boots are good to wear – in fact, they are kinda delicious – if you follow a few simple guidelines:

TIP! Go for a leggy look. Ankle boots go best with short skirts, skinny jeans and leggings.

TIP! Keep skirts at least a couple of inches above your knee, and avoid a short skirt that is too full or you’ll look like a figure skater.

TIP! Balance a heavier dark shoe with a dark jacket, hat, sunglasses or headband, and try the classic stylists tip and juxtapose with an ultra feminine dress.

TIP! Wear black opaques with dark boots to elongate your legs.

TIP! Tuck skinny jeans into your boots, or if your jeans are shorter, have them sit at the top of the boot. If you cover the boot with fabric it will make your calves look thicker.

TIP! Try ankle boots with a long skirt, but make sure you can’t see any leg. Not even a peep.

I like them, Sam-I-am!

They are so very good you see!

So now, I would wear them here and there.

I would wear them ANYWHERE!

 

More tips:

  • If you plan to wear ankle boots with bare legs, choose boots where the height is cut level to the thinnest part of your ankle.
  • The looser and wider they are at the top, the thinner your legs will look.
  • You can buy the featured ECCO Pearl ankle boot here.

    I would wear boots up to school, I would wear them ‘cos they’re cool.
    I would wear them to buy food, or anytime I’m in the mood.
    I would wear them here and there, I would wear them everywhere!
    I want new boots yes I do, to wear with jeans and leggings too.

  • I’ve shared on Facebook & Twitter – princess_nutnut
    I’d wear them dropping the kid’s of at school, shopping and while making tea.
    I’d wear them everyday and they’ll soon become  another part of me.

  • Never in my shed, never in my bed,
    never up a tree and never for a fee,
    never in water even if  I really ought a, 
    never in a chicken coop, 
    or  jump-in thought a fiery hoop,
    does this rhyme have an Ecco?,
    does it ring-a-ding?,
    does this rhyme have an Ecco?,
    for my boots I’ll sing.
    I should have told it from the start and told it as it’s true,
    the only time I’ll wear my boots, is all the time for you. 
      
     

    • Ivone, your rhyme sure had an Ecco,

    If I won I would wear my boots every where and every season. In winter I’d wear them with black tights, a short dress or long top with a jacket and scarf. In spring and autumn I’d loose the jacket and then in summer I’d wear them with a short dress or skirt. and trying to do some Dr Seuss:
     
     
     Say I am Chrissy
    Chrissy I am
    I like Boots better than Ham
    I do I like them, Chrissy I am
     
    So I would not leave them in a box
    I would not give them to a fox
    I would wear them in a house
    I would wear them chasing a mouse
    I would wear them here and there
    Say I would wear them EVERYWHERE
     

    • Hey hey Chrissy
      or should I call you Little Monkey?
      I love your Seuss
      it’s really funky…

    even while eating some fruit.
    They’d look great with my suit,

    so much so all the cars would toot!

Not that I’m complaining because I love my life but sometimes a gal needs a gorgeous new pair of boots to make the walk through life a little bit more interesting! I would wear them EVERYWHERE!

    Or even on a racing yacht,
    I’d even wear them to bed,
    In fact I’d wear them anywhere I tread!

    • Oh the places you would go,
      to put your new shoes out on show!

    I just got a little giddy when I read the words KNEE HIGH RIDING BOOTS. 
    These are my secret obsession.  I am dying to rock a pair this winter (horse optional)!  And I think I’d be quite content to lie back on the couch, gazing at my boots and pretending that I’m off to watch the polo with the Duke and Duchess.

    I would wear them in a heartbeat.
    Wearing them would be such a neat treat.
    I would wear them while I’m driving.
    I would wear them while I’m jiving.
    You won’t get them off my feet.
    ‘Cos new boots will make my life complete.

    Well hello there, O Stylish one.
    Have just shared on Facebook via my page ‘Whoa, Mamma’ and have tagged back to ‘Fox in Flats’.
    New Shoes! New Shoes! New Shoes! I swoon at the thought, because the only new shoes I buy are for my 3 daughters.
    Would love to splurge Mother-Guilt-free on some new Winter boots and I would wear them singing & dancing in the Rain xxx

  • Tania

    What a discovery!! Love your blog Andrea, have subscribed and shared on facebook as Tania Lee.

    I would wear them to Auskick,
    Would wear to work at Austral Bricks.
    I would wear to basketball,
    Then afterwards on a pub crawl.
    Would wear them out to lunch with Fox,
    Would pair them with my favourite socks!
    Would wear them right to Timbuktu!
    One Shoe. Two Shoe. Red Shoe. Blue Shoe…

    Where would I wear a new pair of boots??
    maybe to work with a nice shiny suit..

    I could where them at the park,
    with my daughter in toe,
    or out in the dark, 
    for a night with the beau.

    The options are endless and no-one disputes, 
    my feet would be happy in new ECCO boots!

  • I love this story! I am due any day with my first child and as part of trying to be patient waiting I found myself ordering a pair of flat black leather ankle boots online, which I plan to wear with my leggings after the birth, and when I’m feeling brave (and a little thinner) my skinny jeans!

  • Amanda

    I’ve shared on fb at amanda.voke. I would dare to wear those foxy little Ecco ankle boots anywhere and everywhere!
