Ankle boots are back this fall and bigger than ever. I was a bit resistant to them last season but am totally loving them now, especially when paired with dark tights and skirts or dresses. Ankle boots are meant to be seen and the more interesting details like zippers, rivets, stitching or unique leathers, the better. Ankle boots while looking oh so stylish, they can also shorten the appearance of the leg as opposed to lengthening it it like knee high boots so to avoid short, stumpy calves, pair your ankle boots with dark colored tights that will elongate. Also, keep the hem of your skirt or dress just above the knee to maximize every inch of your legs. Check out www.piperlime.com for a great selection of ankle boots.
