Ah, ankle boots—that perennially stylish wardrobe staple that you return to time and again whenever the temperature outside starts to drop. Even though knee-high styles may be making their way back into the market, I won't be getting rid of my beloved short boots anytime soon. But as much as I love my timeless ankle-hugging friends, it can be a little challenging to change up the outfit game when it comes to styling because there are only so many times you can wear them with a sweater and a pair of jeans.

Whether they're sporting it under slip dresses or bringing their casual sweater outfits to new heights, leave it to our favorite fashion girls to teach us styling lessons on wearing the ankle boots we all have in our closets.
