The goal is for this piece to mix and match with the rest of your clothes (or as much of it as possible!).
Here are some notes to help you find a style for this piece that is versatile.
- Why it’s included in the capsule: Ankle boots are a staple for any wardrobe (unless you live in a very warm climate). They can be dressed up or down, work with jeans, dresses and skirts, and best of all – they keep your feet warm!
- Recommended Color Scheme: Neutral Color
- Recommended Pattern: None
- Options for Fit/Style: Ideally you want this to not have any sort of cut-outs on the side so that you can wear these with regular ankle socks. You can choose a pair with a heel or without!

More Links & Ankle Boot Styles
This pair of real leather ankle boots comes in a bunch of colors and wide sizes in additional to regular sizing.
These have trendy cut-outs, but as we mentioned above that means you can’t wear regular ankle socks with them. They are very cute though!😍
There’s only a couple color options in this style, but it is a very classic ankle boot shape – you can’t go wrong!
These cute ankle boots are 100% leather with lots of size options – including wide!
These have the cutest perforated design to them which nearly give you the cut-out look, but without it affecting your sock options!
These size zippered booties have a lower heel which you may feel more comfortable in than the higher heeled options.
These would definitely be an investment, but if you like a wedge style, these 100% leather Sorel booties would be worth it!
Chelsea boots are a very trendy shoe style right now (slip on with elastic sides) and many styles are waterproof!
Another wedge bootie style, these ankle boots are from Dr. Scholl’s and I’ve had really comfortable shoes from them in the past!
If you live in a very wet climate or spend a lot of time outdoors during the fall and winter you might like this rubber boot option instead of leather.
I love Life Stride shoes and I love the crisscross design on these! They have wide sizes and half sizes as well.
This is a more unique style, but if you personal preference is non-traditional these would be a perfect alternative to the classic ankle boot.
3 Outfit Ideas: How to Wear Ankle Boots
Here are a few ideas shared by our community on the Frump Fighters Interactive!
When you use one of our outfit guides paired with the Interactive platform you can search by any clothing piece (i.e ankle boots or a white shirt) and not only be able to see how other women are styling it, but also all our example outfits!
You might think “but I can do that on Pinterest” and while that’s TRUE, you still have to go searching for the other pieces of the outfit in order to copy them. Pinterest tempts you to buy an “outfit” instead of using the clothes you already have to make new outfits. Using our web app and capsule you likely already have the clothing pieces you need to create many, many outfits!
Here are a 3 different ways for how to wear your ankle boots – in all the seasons!

Ankle Boots Outfit Idea #2: With a Dress + Denim Jacket
- Neutral Dress
- Denim Jacket
- Ankle Boots
Boots work with skirts and dresses too!
Ankle Boots Outfit Idea #3: With Jeans + Sweatshirt

Style Tip: If you need even more warmth for your feet in the winter, you can fold thick wool socks over once or twice to about 1 inch above the ankle boot. Tuck skinny jeans or leggings into socks. You can also just wear boot cut pants over the ankle boots.⬇
