Style File: Ankle Boots + Ankle Pants

An unusual pairing is popping up in Spring fashion catalogues – trendy, cropped ankle pants with trendy, cropped ankle boots. It’s a chic, effortless style…but what is the key to making that look work?

Fashion Blogger Ali Henrie from “With an i.e.” admits it is not an easy pairing to pull off.

Ankle boots are a great way to transition from winter to spring, however, they can be a little tricky when worn with cropped pants.

The key to making this trend work is to give a little peek of the skinniest part of your leg: the area right above your ankle bone.

Try a boot that hits at your ankle and a pant that hits a few inches above your ankle.

Also, go for an ankle pant (not a capri) that is slightly tapered toward the bottom and then balance it out with a little more volume on top. Because this is a cool and more relaxed trend, I like the idea of keeping the rest of your look laid back and casual.
