Ankle boots – the perfect choice for the fall and spring seasons when weather is transitioning between hot and cold. They can be worn with summer dresses as easily as they can be layered with sweaters and scarves.

Here are a few travel outfit ideas for how to wear ankle boots when you travel in the fall!


How to Wear Ankle Boots


Ankle boots are so stylish and timeless, an awesome addition to your travel capsule wardrobe. But sometimes they can be tricky to style. In this post, we’re sharing how to wear ankle boots in three key ways:


  • in timeless tan
  • in trendy burgundy
  • in animal print


Find out how to wear ankle boots below!

Timeless Tan


If you’re only going to own one pair of ankle boots make them a classic: a tan leather color. It’s the perfect neutral and easily matches with everything you own.

Tan leather shoes can go with just about anything and this goes for ankle boots, tall boots, wedges, sandals, and flats. They’re a much more versatile and fashionable option than a standard black pair of shoes.

Just remember to choose a purse of a different color for stylish contrast.


Some boots are even small enough to fit into a slim packing cube instead of a shoe bag!

Combine them with black leggings or dark skinny jeans, jacket layered over a tunic top or long button up top. Leggings can be worn as pants so long as your top is long enough to fully cover your crotch and bottom. Alternatively, find legging style knit pants!

Burgundy Trend


This season, burgundy and maroon red is everywhere. Like tan leather, this color also acts as a neutral and can be worn with a range of colors. Whether your wardrobe is feminine or edgy – burgundy goes well with everything.

Pair them with a black faux jacket and maxi dress or a dark black trench, skinny jeans and classic tee.

Animal Print


Alternatively, if you wear a lot of black and prefer a darker look, go for a bold pattern. Keep it monochrome with a black and white pattern or choose a leopard print which is considered a neutral print by many fashionistas – I agree! Gotta love a lovely leopard print ankle boot or jacket to boost up a mostly black outfit.

 Stick to a one-two solid color outfit unless you’re a master with prints.


Ankle boots are an amazing way to save space when the temperature drops and style your fall or spring travel wardrobe.
