Ankle Boots for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s

Quote of the day: “Think like a proton.  Always positive.”  message on a science-classroom poster.

More wonderful looks for these exact same fabulous short boots. Remember if you are wearing cute ones…show them off so everyone else can see them by cuffing your pants or wearing a (gasp) skirt!! See previous blogs: Ankle Boots (Style Discussion 1) & Ankle Boots (Style Discussion 2).

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I actually like a print pant because even if it’s tight you don’t notice the extra lumps as much.  Besides these were a steal (only $6 at the end of the season)!  I think the boot actually breaks up the print thus it’s not as overwhelming.

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: I like the white jeans with these boots so you can appreciate how cute they look because of the contrast!  If you have a pair of interesting ankle boots…cuff them so you make sure they get exposed!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit:  Mom likes her skirts longer even though I keep telling her that her legs are great!  And isn’t this jacket perfect, because it adds interest to the outfit and since it’s an A-line shape it camouflages any tummy bulges?!!  With the brown tights you almost don’t realize they are short boots, but then up close you see they are ankle boots and think “oh, how, fashionable!”  As you can see in all three of mom’s posts, the ankle boots are not the star of the show but more of a great finishing touch!

Thanks for visiting my style blog!!!

There are remarkably many interesting boots available now.  Here’s a few to consider adding to your collection!

    I love all 3 outfits – can’t even pick a favorite. Your print pants – darling! Nancy’s blue boots with her white jeans – lovely! Charlotte’s animal print jacket with her long, sleek skirt – so chic! The ankle boots are just perfect in each outfit. I only recently purchased my first few pairs! Some are perforated and light neutrals so I hope to wear them this month.

      I’m surprised you only have just gotten a pair Kathleen….any specific reasons why?
      I found that my collection has grown quite a bit in these last couple of years, since I can wear them more than my taller boots!!

        I think I had to get used to the look and then feel comfortable with how I (at 63) would wear them – what pants would look good with them, etc. Your blog is helpful! (I do like them with skirts and dresses, too.)

    Again, Nancy is the standout here. I love her blue top and the jacket she’s paired with it. I love the white denim pants she’s wearing. I’m not a big fan of the animal print scarf, however.

    Charlotte’s boots, tights and skirt are terrific, but the animal print top undoes the ensemble for me. Not a fan of the big buttons on the garment either.

    Jodie is stunning as usual.
