Every Stylish Celeb Wears This One Item

If you scroll through as many celebrity images as we do, you begin noticing unique trends and similarities. For example, how just about every It girl tested out the of-the-moment bomber jacket look this season. But what about footwear specifically? Well, after taking a glimpse at a few recent snaps, we realized that the absolute most stylish celebs have one shoe style in common: statement ankle boots. Seriously—fashion A-listers from Kendall Jenner to Rihanna to Olivia Culpo all step out in a variety of eye-catching booties. We're talking interesting moto boots, gorgeous velvet options, flashy sock-inspired finds, and everything in between. We totally understand why these ladies opt for this style—wearing a flashier pair of boots is one of the simplest way to make even the most standard outfit feel unique and interesting.
