What to wear with my new pointy kitten heel ankle boots?
A knee length or just above skirt/dress would look fine. Shift dress, A-line or pencil skirt? Try pulling out a few things and see how you get on. Suede can look clumpy so to minimise wear thick black tights. I am sure a skinny trouser would look fine with them too. The thing will be to tuck in or not but i suppose if they are just above the boot that may look fine.
they look good for the Victorian look that is in this fall/winter. def wear with dresses - prob mid calf length depending on how that looks to you. can also see them with the gaucho style wide leg mid calf length pants.
Ok - this is coming from something I'm working on myself....even though you love them, if they don't look good on you, or go with the clothes you wanted to wear them with, should you really keep them? Do you wear opaques and skirts a lot, that sounds like office wear to me. Which if you have that kind of job then great, but would you wear that outfit casually just to get wear out of the boots?
I'm so guilty of this and have wasted so much money buying individual items I love, (especially heeled boots!) then not really having the rest of the outfit/occasion/lifestyle to wear them so they sit unused till i sell them at a loss on eBay a few months later!
That's really good advice and I completely agree. I do work in a casual office so I'm sure it would be fine to wear them with dresses/skirts. I'll try them with a few of my favourite work-y outfits and if they don't work/I don't feel confident in them they are going back! Thanks for the wise advice.
