Our editor’s favourite ankle boots right now A long-lasting trend.

November 5, 2021

We’re definitely, still living in the pandemic hangover times. It means, yes, we want to get dressed again with pomp and glam, but we also want to keep the comfort we’ve been experiencing in the last almost two years- styling headaches! Our editors, for example, are pleased to keep their feet warm in sneakers and chunky ankle boots. And we are not alone, ankle boots are clearly the favourite on Instagram right now. The good news is our favourite ankle boots will continue on-trend for the long haul, making them a good investment.

We’ll show you a selection of our favourite black chunky ankle boots, and another selection with the best colourful chunky ankle boots. And in the end, we give you some inspiration on how to wear ankle boots like the most relevant Instagramers.

1- Our editor’s favourite black ankle boots

The classic black Chelsea boots with thick rubber soles are our favourite ankle boots, but we can imagine they are not popular among everybody. Many call them monster boots. Pair them with wide-legged trousers as the French Sophie Fontanel does. And for a more fashion-forward style, tuck your wide-leg trousers in the ankle boots, creating a new silhouette, like the gaucho pants.

Pernille Rosenkilde updates her checkered coat with off-white ankle boots. But if you are petite or have thin legs and worry that the new ankle boots may look too bulky on you, do like Claire Rose Cliteur. Her model is less chunky, and she pairs them with black socks; perfect styling to wear with skirts or dresses.
