Wearing White Ankle Boots With Black Jeans And….THIS Surprising Color


Here we are, several months later, and my favorite white ankle boots are still going strong. Because they’re a newer trend, I do find them trickier to wear than my old standbys, the black ankle bootie, but they add a freshness to an outfit that I can’t get enough of.  One styling trick I’ve been using is this simple formula:

white boots + black skinnies + something tan

The black-and-tan combo is a classic that feels modern again, and the tan nicely bridges the gap between the glaringly white booties and darker pieces.

Outfit 1 – Try Tan Leather

I’m just going for leather trim on a puffer BECAUSE IT’S FREEZING HERE, but a moto jacket in a pretty brown, camel or tan would also work.  Or try pairing white ankle booties with Madewell’s new drawstring bag and call it a day.  Perfection.

jeans: Rag & Bone (size 24 for reference)

boots: Dolce Vita


Outfit 2 – Soft and Cozy Camel

Any sort of cozy camel piece would work.  I just pulled out an old Theory topper and my new ‘Motherlover’ sweater (a gift from the TME team).  Love this thing – blush and oxblood is another fav color combo.

Here are a few other pieces in this hero color that look pretty cozy for Jan/Feb.   They’d be perfect with black skinnies and white boots (or sneaks).

  1. Every time I see that puffer jacket I love it! I don’t have white boots, but I did just buy some black and tan Nike high-tops, so I might flip this whole concept around when I go out tonight and pair them with white jeans and a black top/coat…

  2. I like the white boot look, at least on Shana. Don‘t think I will be buying any for myself though.

    I recently discovered Lole, accidentally while shopping for a winter coat. I only picked it up because it was on the sale rack, but tried it on and LOVED it – a long puffer style. I bought it and, based on my stalking of their website, will likely be buying more Lole in the future!
