Ankle boots have been around for a couple of seasons now and they’re here stay for some time longer. There are a number of ways to wear them.
We'll start with the obvious.
Your trouser may scrunch at the bottom and that’s fine, it’s a good look, as long as there’s not too much scrunch and bulk.
Alternatively, a rolled cuff is the way to go but the trouser leg needs to be narrow for this to work and make sure the cuff is narrow too to pull the look off. Show off some leg or sock.
Ankle grazers (pants that sit at the ankle) are also popular and these work well with ankle boots. The key here is to show off a bit of leg, or sock.
Tucked in. You'll need a narrow leg trouser for this.
Anything goes really - short dress, long dress, bare legs or tights, heel or flat.

As with dresses, anything goes here too. Fuller and longer skirts are making their way in this season, as are wide cropped pants (dare we say cullottes).
Bottom right: Decjuba's got us covered with their Mars Print Top AUD $69.95 (available April), Carrie Wide Leg Pant AUD $99.95, NZD $120 (currently on sale), Jasper Cut Out Heel AUD $129.95, NZD $170 (not an ankle boot but the high cut shoe gives the same effect).
Ankle boots can visually cut your leg short! If you're short in stature, you want to lengthen the visual appearance of your leg line as much as possible, you're better off with a low cut shoe. It's not so bad if you're wearing similar coloured boots to tights, there's not the obvious contrast to break the look.
