Style gurus of style and beauty I need your help! After ignoring the ankle boot trend last year I now give in! I was out for lunch the other day with a big group of stylish (and fairly slim) ladies and they all had fab ankle boots on. I wanted to look as good as them! It's not easy though! Here are the criteria/issues: I am a short legged 5.4, size 12. I think I need wide ankle opening to make my legs look slimmer. I don't like lots of bling or buckles. They probably should be black or brown and have a heel suitable for everyday use. I can spend up to £100 or a tiny bit more.
Love Hotters boots. Extreme comfort and various styles. Lived in their ankle boots last year and getting them out again. They are on line if you haven't got a Hotters Shop. They are doing buy two get third free at moment. They are made in the UK so great for them and me.
I have chunky legs and thought ankle boots wouldn't suit me either but I tried on a pair in Tesco with skinny jeans turned up and they looked good. The turn up added a bit of bulk above the boot which balanced it out. So I bought them
They also look good with a slouch sock just visible between the boot and jeans, the sock works the same way by balancing out.
Thanks all! Liking the sock idea, very cunning . The Hudson's look like they have a good ankle gap. Definitely on the look out for those. As for the Tesco ones, I need to go food shopping today and it would be rude not to have a look! Thanks all! Any more suggestions gratefully received!
