How to style your chunky ankle boots in spring

Thought that boots were only for winter? No ways! Don’t pack your chunky ankle boots away just yet, they’ll look great with many of your spring outfits.

Chunky utility-style boots are a huge trend this year and I want to wear mine a little longer. These boots look great styled in the “classic” way with jeans and jackets. But for this post, I went searching for a few different ways to wear them with cooler, spring-inspired outfits.

Here, we pair our favourite, sustainable, locally made REEFER Urban Safari Cork Boots with a fresh white dress, trendy denim shorts, a maxi dress and cropped linen pants. These styles are a new take on how to wear your ankle boots in the current transitional weather.

WHITE DRESS WITH CHUNKY BOOTS

Nothing says “spring” like a fresh, white, cotton dress. We love our white dresses with strappy sandals but how about trying a twist on this style and swapping the sandals for chunky boots during spring? We adore the Kirsten Goss Lucky Star Huggie Earrings (with removable charms) and Lodewijk’s luxury ostrich leather shoulder bag with this look.

Outfit denim shorts and chunky boots

Denim shorts and cut-offs are back from the 90s! JMVB’s wide-leg version looks stunning with a floral T-shirt (this version is from Good Clothing) and chunky cork boots. The shorts fit mid-thigh and are elasticated at the back for a perfect high-waisted fit. Show some leg in denim shorts this spring!

Maxi dresses are easy-to-wear, elegant and flattering. Try your favourite dress with some ankle boots this season. “Masculine” utility boots add interest and contrast to a feminine dress. In this outfit I used JMVB’s best selling Rain Maxi Dress (available in various colours), and dainty jewellery by Kirsten Goss.

Cropped pants are virtually made for chunky ankle boots, they show off the shoes so beautifully! In this “gender-neutral” outfit I added a blazer and T-shirt to these seafoam-blue cropped pants and cork boots. The look is finished off with accessories inspired by the ocean – the Oceanum Round Bag and Kenzo Earrings.
