If there’s one staple your closet needs, it’s a great ankle boot. Our bestselling Two Point Five Ankle Boot has been a mainstay in closets since 2015. The ankle boot style is versatile, comfortable and flattering.
“The V-shaped topline elongates the leg while making the boot playful enough to be paired with jeans, midi-skirts or trousers,” says Justine, co-founder of Poppy Barley and designer of iconic Two Point Five Ankle Boot.
Here is a roundup of outfits to wear with your ankle boots. We kept the styling uncomplicated, chic and ready for copying.
How do you wear pants with ankle boots?
Don't be afraid to try different pant styles – ankle boots look great with trousers and jeans. No need to choose between slim-leg pants or a more relaxed fit, both look great. For slim-fitting pants, a cropped hem that hits at the ankle is best. When the details are in the topline of the boot, a higher-cut hemline will lend a proper proportion.
Opting for a bootcut pant or wide-legged trouser will give the ankle boots a modern feel.
How do I wear dress pants with ankle boots?
Ankle boots are a great choice for your work wardrobe or elevated weekend looks. Pairing ankle boots with dress pants is all about playing with hemlines. Select a wide-leg cropped dress pant or a tapered fit that will hit at the ankle. Add a blouse and blazer to complete the outfit.
How do you wear ankle boots with a dress or skirt?
There are many ways to pair ankle boots with a dress or skirt. Knee, midi and maxi length skirts all look with ankle boots. Stay away from mini-skirts length hemlines to keep the skirt and boot ratio proportional.
Wearing the boot with a sundress lends a slightly western feel to the boot, while wearing it with an a-line skirt will modernize it. To transition the look from summer to fall, add tights during the cooler months.
Additional outfit ideas to wear with ankle boots;
If you own a matching sweatsuit, try it on with your ankle boots, add a long wool coat overtop and a crossbody bag. You might be surprised with how adorable and put together you look!
What socks should you wear with ankle boots?
A no-show sock lets the boots take centre stage. Keep the sock below the topline of the ankle boot. For the Two Point Five Ankle Boot, a sock that dips low around the ankle and coordinates with the colour of your boot is best.
For our Two Point Five Years Campaign, we enlisted our team members to showcase the boot as versatile as the people behind it. Our product designer and in-house stylist, Kalie, explains how the look were chosen to suite everyone's personal style and personalities.
We worked with what was trending currently – elevated joggers paired with a relaxed cable knit sweater and some pretty gold chains on Kassandra. This "winter whites" look paired really beautifully with the ankle boot in Desert Tan.
Wide-legged trouser jeans were used on Vanessa to show a peek of the toe of the boot and give her the height needed to make long lines. To play with silhouettes, she wore a fitted black turtleneck sweater to balance out the leg of the jeans.
Doris wore a very simple outfit, showcasing a simple, everyday Two Point Five Ankle Boot look. Skinny grey jeans with and an Olive over-shirt was the perfect look on her.
For myself, I wanted to put a spotlight on the ankle boot in Snake, but wanted to make the outfit contemporary and show some alternative pant shapes. A peg-legged belted faux-leather trousers paired with a basic white tee helped to achieve this look.
Kendall is wearing two looks to show different sides of her personality. The colours of the floral print dress were complimentary to her hair and showed how the boots can be worn with softer, bohemian items in your closet. The structured blazer and faux leather joggers show the business leader side of her personality, as it exudes confidence. The elasticated hem works well with the v-topline on the Two Point Five Ankle Boot.
Justine wore the boots with pleated midi skirt with fitted turtleneck sweater to give the boots a 70's cool vibe, which goes to show how versatile the boots really are. She appears again in a cozy natural coloured sweater and faded black cropped jeans, which again interact with the top of the boots perfectly!
