Even if your classic lines are reinvented and refreshed every year, black ankle boots never go out of fashion and remain an important part of your wardrobe. For a comfortable yet bold outfit, choose black ankle boots in smooth leather with a square toe. For a more casual style, choose lace-up ankle boots with chunky heels. If you're the adventurous type, opt for cowboy boots. More present on the catwalks than in westerns nowadays, they are adorned with pop colours and metallic details this autumn. They are undeniably the guest stars of the season!

Pairing your black ankle boots with the right, well-cut trousers that fit your size perfectly will transform your look in an instant. Neither too long nor too short, they should sit gently on the edge of your shoes to frame them elegantly. To keep it simple, wear your black ankle boots with a pair of straight jeans and an oversized white shirt - a casual look that reinterprets the classic dress codes for workwear. If you want to create a more formal look, wear cigarette trousers or high-waisted trousers, either in black or white for a monochrome look or in a vibrant colour to contrast with your shoes.
