You can’t go wrong with the classics—those will-never-go-out-of-style staples you wear on repeat season after season. When it comes to footwear, black ankle boots fall in this category. Seriously, can you imagine getting through fall and winter without your favorite pair? No. In addition, we’re also champions of alternative silhouettes that give our shoe offering that forward edge. This season, white ankle boots fit that bill, as well as another offbeat style we haven’t seen around in seasons—kitten ankle boots. Once thought of as "ugly" due to the "unflattering" heel height, the top street style stars during fashion month wore these low-to-the-ground booties (usually with a pointed toe) paired with everything from skinny jeans to floral dresses.
