This Ankle-Boot Style Is in It for the Long Haul

·2 min read

You can’t deny the power of the perfect pair of black ankle boots. But we don’t really need to go on and on about how they’re a staple—you already know the drill. Over the last few seasons, though, white booties have been creeping up as a must-have shoe silhouette. While they were considered the It trend of last fall and winter, the fashion elite is proving that the style isn’t going away anytime soon.
