But where do you start? Staring at what seems like a never-ending wall of ankle boots may be quite daunting. We promise you it’s as easy as pie when it comes to finding the style for you.
Check out our top picks below for autumn and winter booties.
If classic, simple style is your cup of tea, Chelsea boots are the ones for you.

The design of the Apache Shira ankle boots means you can wear them with just about anything (although we’d probably avoid the beach!) Pair them with your favourite skinny jeans and an oversized jumper for a cosy look during those chilly autumn mornings.
Feeling bold? Of course you are! Why not team the Timberland Venice Park boots with a tailored blazer and cigarette trousers for an edgy masculine vibe?

A block heel is definitely a shoe rack essential.
This versatile ankle boot is customisable depending on the size of heel you dare to go for.

Take your look from day to night with higher block-heel ankle boots, such as the Sprox Stacie boots, just perfect to wear with a LBD or flowy skirt and tights to elongate your legs and make sure you’re night-out ready.

You’ll never have to worry about your feet aching in a pair of versatile flat ankle boots. Made to suit every personal style, these bad-boy boots will never be a fashion faux pas.
Ankle boots with dresses are a stylish option for sunny autumn days, but are just as good with a pair of slouchy mom jeans, rolled up for a casual vibe.

Go all-out glamour with a pair of sophisticated stiletto ankle boots. Don’t let the idea of a stiletto scare you away from the heel section – a boot version is a great alternative to look incredible and still have support.
No matter what size heel you go for, this style looks especially stunning when worn at night or for an upscale event. Why not break boundaries? Wear them with some skinny jeans and leather jacket to turn heads at brunch.

How to wear ankle boots with jeans
Jeans are an everyday essential in almost every wardrobe, and we get why – they’re comfortable, versatile and never go out of fashion, not to mention they go hand-in-hand with ankle boots.
With skinny jeans
For a long, lean line, tuck your jeans into the boots. If they bunch, try rolling them up for ultimate ankle slimming.
With straight-leg jeans
Try to make the hem of the jeans extend over the top of the boot to prevent your legs looking shorter than they are.
With boot-cut jeans
We think this flattering style looks best when the jeans are around an inch from the ground. Try a boot with a pointed toe to slim and lengthen the line of the leg.
