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.
