The Most Flattering Way to Wear Your Ankle Boots

“How do I wear my ankle boots?” Did you know that this is one of the mst frequently Googled fashion questions year after year? Seeing that many of you are curious as to the best way to style your booties, we thought we’d chime in and tell you one universally flattering style trick every fashion girl swears to buy. Ready? Give your ankles a little breathing room.

Also known as “ankle cleavage“, this simple styling trick is the most flattering way to style your booties.

Here’s my breakdown of how to do it right: If you are planning on styling your booties with cuffed jeans or a flowy dress, forgo socks. For some, the idea of not wearing socks doesn’t sit well. In this case, try to wear low-cut footie socks that you can’t see. And for an elongating effect, try cuffing your jeans. When rolling up your jeans, make sure you roll up at the hem in a way that it looks undone and not too perfect. Whether you are on the taller side or shorter, this styling trick will give you the model-like long legs you want.
