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!!!
Boots: Pink & Pepper at DSW’s (here)~~Jeans: Gloria Vanderbilt (similar here) ~~ Jacket: Joseph Ribkoff at a NY boutique (similar here)~~Top: H&M (similar here) with tank under.~~Necklace: Loft (similar here)
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.
