Choose a Neutral Color for its Versatility

 

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 different colored purse for a stylish contrast.

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

Choose a Print to Add Life to a Neutral Wardrobe

 

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 leopard print ankle boot or jacket to boost up a mostly black outfit.

How to Pack Ankle Boots

 

Determining how to pack ankle boots for travel can be difficult, especially if you’re trying to pack light and avoid a shoe poking through a bag. To make it easier, start by choosing a container such as a shoe bag or a packing cube, then pack according to your type of luggage.

Whether you have a front loading or top loading backpack, it’s crucial to put your shoes first, at the bottom. If you’re planning to pack shoes in a rolling carry-on, remember that it stands sideways, so it’s important to note how it functions when it is upright. Most often, your shoes will need to be packed close to the wheels, so that the luggage maintains its balance in transit.

To store, use washable shoe bags, gallon size Ziploc bags, or plastic shower caps to keep your belongings separate from your shoes.

We put together a five-part YouTube series showing the different methods to use packing cubes for travel. If you use this specific packing strategy, packing cubes can also compress your belongings. This is the secret to traveling carry-on only!
