These Once "Ugly" Ankle Boots Are Everywhere Now

When it comes to ankle boots, there are specific silhouettes that reign supreme. The first style that probably comes to your mind? Classic black booties. We're right there with you—there's a reason this iteration never goes out of style with its cool, goes-with-everything nature. Let's also note that printed ankle boots, metallic boots, and velvet boots are also incredibly popular. But we've seen a resurgence of one style recently that feels so unexpected and fresh: white booties

That's right—just like we spotted in heels a few months ago, we've seen a slew of street style stars and It girls step out in all-white ankle boots (despite the fact that white shoes haven't always been the most popular and were thought of as a "no-go" by many in the winter months). We'll always wear our go-to black booties, but a white pair feels incredibly cool and forward right now.
