Right now, more so then ever before, ankle boots are not just a wardrobe staple, they're the hero piece to your look. So when it comes to shopping and getting dressed in the mornings, we're starting from the foot and working our way up.
So what are they key styles you need to make sure are in your wardrobe?
Block Heel Ankle Boots
If you're anything like me and high heels are not your bag then you'll want to opt for a block heel ankle boots. Trust me, they'll become your best friends. Comfy, warm and with that little bit of height, they do wonders for your overall look. My favourite style at the moment is Zara's all-red block heel style. The pop of colour will lift your casual jeans and knit.
Biker boots are the ultimate original ankle boot and will never fade. They're the ideal way to toughen up an amazing floral dress or simply to team with jeans and a tee for dashing about day-to-day. Of all the ankle boots, they have the most longevity as styles vary only very slightly from season to season, so you'll be kicking about it these for years to come.

Sock Ankle Boots
The newest type of ankle boot goes to the sock boots. Best worn under culottes or midi length dresses, I prefer them in a lower heel as they're way more elegant and chic. They're tricky to wear with a skinny jean – the proportions are not right so avoid that. Colour and print is a favourite with this style so if you're going to do it, go all out.

Warning: they will mark easily, but opt for a good leather and you can simply wipe them down.
