Ankle boots are a year-round fashion-girl favorite and an undisputed staple in colder months, and while it’s easy to pair your go-tos with skinny jeans, there are plenty of other ways to work with them. Although skinny jeans will never go out of style, we’ve been seeing a different style taking over lately: cropped pants with booties.
For a look that makes a statement, we urge you to take inspiration from your favorite style stars and celebrities and consider pairing your ankle boots with cropped pants. Yes, the combo can be tricky, but as Kendall Jenner and plenty of other It girls demonstrate, the results are fresh and fashion-forward—and there’s no better way to show off your favorite boots. So whether you’re wearing some boot-cut jeans, wide-leg slacks with hemlines at the calf, or three-quarter patent leather leggings, consider finishing off your look with ankle boots. Below are some of our favorite ways to wear cropped pants with booties.
