I love denim, but every autumn, I find myself defaulting back to jeans and jumpers, which I quickly tire of. As such, I've made it my mission to try and explore other trouser options. While I won't be casting aside my skinny jeans just yet, there are three other trouser types I intend on wearing throughout the season. My only obstacle? Footwear.
I'm petite, and ankle boots always serve as my go-to, but I always find them notoriously tricky to style with trousers. Sometimes the hemline just doesn't work. At other times, the proportions don't add up. More often than not, I abandon them both and whip up an outfit from scratch. But no more.
I set out to find which ankle boot should be worn with which styles of trousers, and you know what? I've found eight foolproof combinations that just work. Keep scrolling to see, once and for all which ankle boots to wear with trousers.
When it comes to footwear, wide-leg trousers are notoriously tricky to style, particularly, in winter. However, stick to fitted boots or those with an on-trend stacked platform sole, and they'll balance out the wide-leg silhouette.
Tailored trousers that sit just below the ankle always look slick, so you don't want to detract from that with clumpy boots. Instead, opt for sleek stiletto heels with pointed toes to help elongate your pins. If you prefer flats, try a pared-back leather Chelsea boot.
