Last week on my Tie It Together Thursday picture, I showed this picture with black ankle boots. Krista, who sent the picture of the dress, had mentioned wearing ankle boots with it in the fall.
Several of you asked about the ankle boots. How do you wear them? Do you wear tights, what color, etc.
I’m not sure I would wear boots with this dress. If I did wear ankle boots, I would wear black tights but I would have to try this on to make sure it looked right.
I decided to do some researching and thinking about how to wear the ankle boot. It looks like they’ll be popular again this fall/winter season.
Let remind you, just because it’s in style doesn’t mean we have to wear it. Not everyone looks good in ankle boots.
Here are some things to consider:
~~Ankle boots cut your legs off at the ankle so if you have short legs, it will make them look shorter.
~~Try to wear an ankle boot that is close to your skin color to avoid them cutting off your legs.
~~Ankle boots accentuate the ankle, so if you have large ankles, you may not want to wear them with a dress.
~~Ankle boots look great with skinny jeans.
I found some pictures with ankle boots that I liked. These are great examples of how to wear the ankle boot.
Now, here’s the question. Can women over 40 wear ankle boots? The answer is yes! We can wear them but make sure they look appropriate with the outfit you’re wearing.
I usually ask myself, “Does this look classy or trashy?” Of course if it’s trashy stay clear of it!
So what do you think of the ankle boot? Do you wear them, do you like them? Let me know!
Beauty For the Heart~~I recently found a book of my Mom’s called HOPE, pure and simple by Max Lucado. It has so many good quotes and that’s what I’ve been using for my Beauty For the Heart. I hope you like them!

Have a blessed day!
