15 Ways To Style White Ankle Boots

Wearing white well after Labor Day is not only acceptable, it's on trend. Stylists, celebrities, and influencers know it can be worn year-round, including on your footwear. One look at Instagram or TikTok, and you can see that white ankle boots are one of the season's hottest accessories. If you thought you had to put them away as temperatures drop just because they're the color of snow, think again. If you've been hesitant to buy that cute pair you've been coveting because you're unsure how to wear them, we're here to help.

White ankle boots give you fashionable, cute, and versatile outfit choices. On top of that, you have countless styles and fabrics to choose from when selecting this wardrobe staple. According to celebrity stylist Tan France for MasterClass, this type of boot can be worn for day or evening looks. 

These booties can be paired with just about anything in your closet, with the right styling. "The white ankle boot has become a key piece in every woman's closet," Neiman Marcus vice president Jodi Kahn tells The Zoe Report. "Every season, we see a new, refreshed update to the style — a change in the toe shape or the heel." If you're looking for some wardrobe inspiration or just need an excuse to go shopping, check out these 15 different ways to style white ankle boots.

Jumpsuit and a layered shirt

Jumpsuits are still very much in style and are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in your closet. We love matching a one-piece with a pair of white ankle boots. Take inspiration from influencer Preet by pairing a square-toed version with a jumpsuit and a classic white button-down worn open for a casual-yet-chic look. For an evening out, take this look to the next level with a sleek ankle boot featuring a higher heel to create a more streamlined look.

Unconventional wedding look

Would you wear white ankle boots with your wedding dress? Even if you skip this footwear on your big day you can still pair them with a short, formal dress for a show-stopping outfit. The monochromatic shades of white on white give classy and sophisticated vibes, while the booties give an unexpected look. Opt for a style that sits above the ankle with a short dress. A pointed toe will also give your boot a chic silhouette.

Skinny jeans and a blazer

Skinny jeans can easily be paired with white ankle boots for an updated look this season. If your skinnies are longer you can tuck them into your boots to create an elongated line. Or, like the picture above, you can wear a pair of cropped jeans for an outfit that works for daytime. You can take this look to the office by teaming it with a crisp white blouse and a dark blazer to contrast with your white ankle boots.

Mini dress

Brighten up your day and your mood by pairing a dark mini dress with your short white boots. "An antidote for grey weather and too many black sweaters," influencer Vanessa Ulrich says of teaming white ankle boots with a long-sleeve version. Many people think they need a taller boot or shoe with a mini, but your short bootie is exactly what you can wear to transform your look. Fashion rules can go out the window with an outfit like this, as you experiment with different heel heights, jewelry, accessories, and jackets to style for any event.

Floral dress

This look screams, "It's pumpkin spice season!" A great way to add an edgy style to a cute, floral dress with a tiered skirt is to pair it with white ankle boots. You could wear pull-on boots with this look, but we love how laces and lug soles can add a casual flair to this outfit. According to Pink April Diary, a floral design coordinated with a crossbody bag gives a feminine touch, while the white ankle boots give a streetwear style.

Raw-edge jeans and a classic tee

White ankle boots can literally be worn with anything and everything. This slip-on style is the perfect footwear choice for everyday. Pair these booties with your favorite high-waisted, raw-edge jeans, and a classic white tee for an easy everyday look. The black accents on these white ankle boots give an elevated feel. We love the casual style of these chunky-heeled boots with denim, but you could also wear a higher heel if you are going for a dressy night out.

Turtleneck and a bodycon dress

This fall outfit is a perfect example of how you can take wardrobe staples from the summer and make them work in cooler weather. Layering a turtleneck under this bodycon dress and throwing a jacket or blazer over top, in all monochromatic shades, creates an outfit that is wearable in every season. The white ankle boots make this look totally winter-chic. Add a pair of tights if you need an even warmer version.

Skinny jeans and a turtleneck

Who knew basic skinny jeans and a white turtleneck could look so stylish? Black and white will always be a classic combination, and we love how pairing a bright turtleneck with matching ankle boots and dark jeans creates a color-blocking effect. Opt for a high-neck bodysuit and tuck the jeans into the boots to ensure a streamlined and clean silhouette. Go for pointed toes and a chunky heel on your white ankle boots for an elegant outfit. Earrings are all you need to accessorize.

All white with a black leather jacket

Winter white lug sole, lace-up boots create the perfect street style when paired with raw-edge skinny jeans and a matching snug top in the same color. Add a black leather bomber jacket to complete the look. We love how the sherpa trim on this outerwear coordinates with the neutral-toned purse. And the buckles on both the jacket and boots match perfectly. Just a few wardrobe staples worn together can really make a traffic-stopping look.

Maxi skirt and basic white tee

This is another example of how white ankle boots can elevate a simple outfit. Pairing the plain white cotton tee with a neutral satin skirt is a great way to play with different fabrics. Adding short booties can make this outfit more or less casual, depending on the material and style. The pointed toe and high heels on this footwear are ideal for work, dinner, or a stylish night out on the town.

Leggings and an oversize sweater

Smart and comfy is the name of the game with this fall outfit. These crisp white ankle boots pair gorgeously with black leather leggings, taking the look to a whole new level with the heel. Style with an oversize chunky-knit sweater — also in white — and you have a style that your cozy dreams are made of. Pairing a creamy knit with dark fitted leggings and heeled boots provides the right amount of balance for this casual creation.

Sweats and a duster

When we said you can wear your white ankle boots with any outfit, we meant it! You can look fabulous while out running errands in your sweats by pairing them with flat white ankle booties instead of your regular old running shoes. Throw on a long duster over your sweat suit, add some chunky socks and throw on your trusted sunnies to complete this casual-yet-stylish outfit. You can be comfortable and chic in white ankle boots.

Cuffed jeans and a coat with a long scarf

We are obsessed with this stylish look! The white ankle boots add just the right pop of color to this grey outfit. The cuffed, straight-leg jeans are worn under a long coat and oversized scarf all in monochromatic shades of grey. We see this as the perfect style to grab coffee with friends, a day date on a lovely fall day, or for a casual Friday at work. The pointed toe and tiny heel add a touch of flair to this pair.

Jeans and a vest

We simply adore how white ankle boots can truly take a casual, everyday outfit and make it a moment with this lace-up version. Wearing these booties with a basic jeans, turtleneck, oversize vest combination instantly makes this look more fashionable. Although your simple white ankle boots will always be amazing when paired with an all-black outfit, you can wear this look with other colors — just try to keep it monochromatic.

Jeans and a bomber jacket

Wear your white ankle boots with straight-leg jeans and a bomber jacket for a day in the city. Not only will you look super stylish but you'll also be comfortable. Opt for cropped jeans to show off your booties, while still creating a sleek silhouette — the coat gives you that oversized look on top. Pick a pair of white ankle boots with a contrasting sole if you want to add some depth to your trendy footwear.
