Ankle Boots for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s!!

Quote of the day: Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”  Theodore Roosevelt

Ankle boots are the easiest way right now to look modern and still be extremely comfortable.  They can be flat or high heeled…so perfect for everyone!  They are great if you are always cold (like me) because you can wear socks to help keep you warm.  Or if you are always hot, at least they don’t cover your calf like tall boots, you don’t have to wear socks with them, and there are even some with cut outs or peep toes.  I would say the disadvantage would be they do cut off the leg line…but there are ways to deal with that issue.

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit:  I like the way these ankle boots are somewhat lower around the ankle thus I feel more comfortable wearing them with dresses/skirts.  If you are always cold, like me, a secret is to wear a silk undershirt and long gym shorts as I have donned under this outfit. This trick really helps to keep me warmer!  If you tend to be hot, then this outfit is perfect because the dress is light & breezy, the sweater is thin and your legs are exposed!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit:  Nancy just got these boots on one of our “let’s use the coupon from DSW” trips!    These ankle boots have a stacked heel which usually make them easier to walk in for those of you who do not like a high heel. Check out her jacket, the jacket’s ruching is oh so flattering!!!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: My mom has owned ankle boots for many years.  Her pair of boots in this photo is dark brown, so to make my mom happy because she likes to match same colored items together, I paired her first outfit with brown pants.  A silver blouse gives a little shine and the yellow cardigan is the pop of color to add a glow to her face.  You can pair the ankle boots with pants, just like you would any pair of shoes or tall boots.

If you liked Nancy’s blue ankle boots because they are perfect with jeans, here’s some others.

    I love your dress and would leave your cardi open to show more of it – and switch your boots with Nancy’s. Nancy’s outfit is pretty, but with your boots instead! I love Charlotte’s pale yellow sweater against the silver top – the tweed trousers are cool, and though a bit full, are balanced by the short sweater. I think she looks elegant.

      It’s so neat how you think about switching the elements, Kathleen!! You really have such a good eye!! 🙂

    This is one of the best outfits I’ve seen Nancy wear. She’s the standout here. Love the blue on her, though I’m not a big fan of the zippered jacket. I think a button top would look better, but I’m glad it comes with double zippers and she’s chosen to flare it at her waist. The fit is great. Nancy consistently looks better in pants versus skirts. Her khaki slacks look great with the blue top she’s wearing.

    I think Charlotte’s pants are too billowy, though I love the cuffed hem. The yellow sweater is great, but I don’t like the texture or color of the silk top as much.

    Jodie looks great as usual, though I’m not huge fan of her shoes.
