How to wear ankle boots with a dress?

Ankle boots are one of the most chosen styles of women’s shoes. They are most popular in autumn, winter and early spring. They go great with chinos and tucked-in skinny jeans. Will they look just as good with more feminine and romantic styles? We’ll tell you which ankle boots to wear with a dress!

What are ankle boots?

Before presenting the most interesting styles with dress and boots, we explain what are the features that most characterize this style. This is women’s shoes designed for the colder months, which is why they usually have a high shaft, or upper, higher. They can be made of different materials, such as leather-like or textile material, but most often they are made of leather, which is the most flexible and durable. Once waterproofed, leather boots work great even in adverse weather conditions.

Do the boots match the dress?

Ankle boots for women  are such a universal type of shoes that they go with almost everything. They look great not only with princess dresses and balls, but also with floor-length dresses made of thicker fabric. Even in autumn and winter, you don’t have to give up a feminine and romantic look! All you need is thicker tights and matching shoes, for example, Chelsea boots  or cowboy boots. A dress and boots are also a perfect combination for spring and cooler summer days. Do not be afraid of fashion experiments. Most likely, your favorite ankle boots will look great with both your favorite boyfriend jeans and your little black dress. You can check out on the Different Ways to Tie a Shoe: Step Up Your Style!

How to choose ankle boots to match a dress?

What should you pay attention to when choosing ankle boots to a dress? First of all, pay attention to the type of material from which they are made. If you are looking for durable shoes for several seasons, choose natural leather or suede. If you are buying shoes for the autumn rains or the first winter frosts, check if they have additional insulation. Boots also differ in the shape of the toe: most models have an almond-shaped toe, but there is no shortage of fashionable and sexy shoes with a pointed toe on the market. Although most ankle boots have a high shaft, some models end just above the ankle, others even reach mid-calf. One of the main distinguishing features is the height and type of heel. In stationary stores and online stores you can find lace-up boots, slip-on boots and fastened with a zipper or buckle. Any of them will look great in combination with a dress.

In recent seasons, ankle boots made of materials imitating snake skin and ethnic patterns have become very popular. In the Filippo store there are many completely smooth models (for fans of fashion minimalism) and decorated with buckles, buttons or stones (for lovers of fashion experiments).

Dress and ankle boots – fashionable and comfortable styles for every woman

Due to their variety, ankle boots will suit every woman, regardless of age, style and color preferences. See which ankle boots will suit:

Maxi dresses

Long dress and ankle boots – is it a good combination? Of course! Maxi dresses are an excellent choice for weddings, elegant family celebrations or corporate events. If the celebration takes place in the autumn-winter season or early spring, elegant and sexy ankle boots with a pointed heel are a good solution.

Mini dresses

The “little black dress” is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe! This model is perfect for going to the cinema, first dates and evening meetings with a less formal character. If you are a fan of rock styling, go for black ankle boots made of materials that imitate snakeskin or with rivets. Ankle boots with heels or wedge heels visually lengthen the silhouette and emphasize the legs.

Sheath dresses

Sheath dresses are the basis of many office outfits. Which women’s ankle boots go with an elegant dress? Smooth, leather model with a low heel or classic stiletto. In black or dark blue.


A tuxedo is a dress that resembles a long shirt. It usually has a belt or tie at the waist. This model is great for a date or an evening stroll around town. Tuxedos usually reach mid-thigh or end just above the knee. In the casual version, it looks great with wedge ankle boots . In the more elegant version, with heeled ankle boots. You can also combine a vintage-style tuxedo with brown cowboy ankle boots. This is a complete look for an outdoor music festival!

Sports clothes

Do ankle boots go with sports dresses? This is an option for lovers of urban style and comfort! For dresses made of soft and pleasant to the touch knitted fabric, for example with a hood and an elastic band at the waist, classic Chelsea boots are perfect. These are ankle boots with a flat heel and an elastic band on both sides, which allows for quick and convenient putting on and taking off.
