Hi! Lovee your blog. I got these Acappella ankle boots in purple and can´t wait to wear them to work. Could you pls tell me how I can pair them? Also, can I wear these in spring too? I heard Ankle boots are trendy all year around? Thanks! ~ Vidhya
Hi Vidya! Ankle boots are one of my favorite shoes. They can be worn all year long and they transition outfits from season to season. However, unless the ankle boots are black or dark brown with neat details (no girly bows or trendy studs), I would have second thoughts wearing them to work. But there are exceptions, of course, because you can wear almost anything to work if yours is a creative field.
Your boots are more fashionable than professional looking. I assume you seek to create professional outfits out of these boots for the office. And frankly, I found it hard to create trendy but office-friendly looks. If you want to wear these Acappella ankle boots to work, below are the outfits I suggest.
Under Your Sailor Pants
Sailor pants are universally flattering. You can wear them to the office and even outside work. Because this pants have flare cuffs, you can comfortably wear your purple ankle boots under them. When you sit down, especially when you cross your legs, the pants hems hike up revealing the trendy look of your boots. If you´re standing, there´s a sleek silhouette from your pants to your boots giving you an illusion of longer legs.
Pair a purple button-down shirt to your sailor pants, tucked in, and add a french tied black and white dotty scarf.
With an A-Line Skirt
Wearing ankle boots with pencil skirt is a big no-no. Pairing them with a full skirt is not work friendly. Your option is to go for an A-line skirt that hits an inch or two above your knee. Purple blends with shades of blue so can take a dark blue A-line skirt and a rich blue top. If you want to wear it casual, go bare-legged. If you want a more respectful look, wear with black tights.

So tell me Creative Fashionistas, do you wear ankle boots to work? How would you wear this Acappella purple ankle boots to the office?
