As trends evolve and change with the seasons, one piece remains a safe bet: the black dress. A true wardrobe classic, it pairs wonderfully with leather ankle boots. For a work outfit, opt for Chelsea Boots and a fitted black midi dress cinched at the waist, a cut that elongates your silhouette. Complete your look with statement jewelry and opaque or sheer tights if the temperatures cool down.

02 How to wear ankle boots with a white dress?

The minimalist, immaculate white dress takes on a whole new dimension when paired with ankle boots. For a bohemian look, opt for animal print or suede styles. To add a touch of rock chic to your outfit and create a contrast with the simplicity of your dress, dare to wear lace-up boots or studs. With a white dress, forget black tights! Instead, slip on a pair of fine wool socks to keep your feet warm.

03 How to wear ankle boots with a colourful dress?

For those who like to wear pop or pastel shades, the combination of ankle boots and a colourful dress offers an infinite range of possibilities. Black, brown, camel... Opt for boots in neutral tones for a balanced look, or dare to go tone on tone by choosing boots in a similar shade of colour to your outfit. Matte or patent, play with the finish of the leather on your shoes to create a unique and daring silhouette.
