How to: Denim Cutoffs with Ankle Boots

CUtoffs Flowly Blouse ANkle Booties

Wearing denim cutoffs with boots can be tricky. In my eyes, it’s all about proportion, balance, and the perfect pair of cutoffs. I look for a flattering fit in my denim, nothing too tight or short. I also like a classic blue wash and, most importantly, they have to be comfortable!

When pairing the leg-baring shorts with ankle boots, I try to have some balance in the amount of skin I’m showing by covering up with a loose flowy top. If wearing a tank or tee, I keep the fit relaxed and stay away from anything too tight.

As for accessories, I like a semi-slouchy tote and bohemian jewelry accents. The ankle boot/shorts combo has a definite casual vibe, so I would stay away from any jewelry or bags that are too ladylike or delicate.

When looking for a flattering ankle boot, look for a pair that hits at the smallest part of your ankle. It gives your leg a bit more length, rather than cutting it in half. I picked up these boots on clearance at Target. I’m not expecting them to go the distance quality-wise, but I couldn’t resist the grommet details. And that’s what it’s all about- finding a pair of boots (or cutoffs) that you can’t resist and rocking them!
