Spring's Ankle Boots Have Just Arrived, and They're Really Good

There isn't a single sign that spring could be in the air, but that doesn't mean you can't leap forward with a few careful wardrobe choices: From street style outfits that are already making their mark on the year to 2017 runway trends that can easily slide into—and pep up—our winter fallback ensembles (see this printed look for starters).

The first, and may we say easiest, step into the new is via your feet. A perfect pair of ankle boots can lift all tired getups out of obscurity and into the light. Sure, a box-fresh, standard black pair would be a very wise and versatile move, but there are more exciting and uplifting ankle boot purchases to be made this season—and we want to share them with you.

So cast your favourite Acne Studios Jensen boots to one side for a moment and please focus your gaze on the future. From jewel-encrusted metallic midis that enhance last year's sombre outerwear in a flash to the return of the kitten heels, there are brand-spanking-new boot styles galore.

On this glorious #TuesdayShoesday, let's celebrate them! Here are our favourite spring ankle boot trends and the best iteration you can shop for each one…

1. Sock Boots

You may be familiar with sock boots (thanks to Yeezy, no doubt), but now they're getting really sporty.

2. Lace-Ups

For girls who like to keep their look erring on the side of bohemian, these beauties are prompting many a copycat right now.

3. Jacquard

Go all out and wear a jacquard or brocade pair of pretty ankle boots with the season's head-to-toe floral trend.

4. All-White

White boots + cropped blue jeans = our new daily outfit plan.

5. Kitten Heels

Fight it all you like, but the 1980s are coming to get you.

6. Jumbo Platforms

We're talking glam rock here—wear chunky platforms under slim-fit pull-on skinnies and see how long your legs now look.

7. Metallic

These shiny gems will really pop against black opaque tights now and bare skin come summertime.
