Local July 4, Just because long, dark leggings flatter you best, doesn't mean you should feel locked into one style of leggings. Did you try these steps? I did not make this up.

When you're picking some bottoms to cover your petite bottom, you're better off staying on the short side. Choose short skirts, dresses and even shorts to wear over your leggings, as they won't interfere with the long line your leggings and ankle boots create.
Try cut-off denim skirts or shorts for an edgy touch, or a sleek and structured skirt that hits just above the knee for an office-ready look. Just because long, dark leggings flatter you best, doesn't mean you should feel locked into one style of leggings. Your small frame means you can play with colors, textures and finishes other than plain opaque; try shiny leather leggings, for instance, or steamy lace ones.
Mix up basic black with burgundy or purple, and try subtle patterns, such as houndstooth or plaid, for extra fashion flair. Video of the Day.

I was wondering if we had to have cold ankles to be cool no pun intended all winter! So this was exciting to see. Plus, I agree with you, the thick sock definitely makes the difference in being modern. Gonna rock this look in GA! This is a great look and solves my cold ankles problem I have sometimes in the winter with booties!
Oh my goodness YES! Thanks for sharing your trial and error tips with us! Did I mention I live in TN? Love this vote of confidence to rock the ankle boots and socks! I played around with my wooly, thick ones the other day and they looked cute with the wooly insides flipped inside out kinda like the leg warmers for tall boots.
So glad the ankle boots can live on all winter! I appreciate your realistic style and open way of writing about it. It drives me a little crazy when style bloggers post really impractical outfits for winter. There are some super cold days when bare ankles just. I like this post because it works for Caroline in Texas and also for me in New England. Thanks for trying and keeping the experimental mindset alive.
Love your posts, Caroline!!!! I love socks with boots! Also a cold weather pansies club? I actually prefer to wear socks with my booties and get made fun of. I know — not cheap! I just have two pairs though and rotate them out.
Have you checked at Target? Worth a look, anyway! I have a friend that just moved to Boston from Houston that is wondering how to wear other shoes besides knee boots in the winter. I am still debating this look. I love seeing this on other women: I will try this tonight! I always think about that. Especially this short boot, ankle jeans trend. I think it looks great, but it will look so weird in like 10 years. Hopefully this sock idea will push me over the edge. Ok, I am now sold, booties are a must for my winter wardrobe!
I am lacking in length when it comes to my legs but this is too cute… here is hoping my little legs can pull it off. I get happy when it gets below 65 and I can bundle up! Ha, my winter capsule starts in just a few short weeks! Not fashion related but full of beans is a british thing, my parents said it to me all the time when I was a kid!! Also I am so excited to try this look tomorrow!
I was actually just trying to figure this out! Socks are an absolute must in Chicago. I have a drawer full of cute, patterned socks and whenever I attempted something like this, it just looked off. I have a pair of camp socks and I need to give this a try! Caroline, thanks for taking the time to figure out these fashion details and post about them for us… you always make so much sense and I love how you just offer an idea and encourage and allow for individual style…. So I bought a pair, of course.
The year was I rocked those jokers like there was no tomorrow. Not sure what the rest of the world was doing as there were no fashion blogs for guidance. How does this hold up to sitting down then standing up? When I sit, my skinny jeans ride up just a bit, exposing skin when the socks are like this? Then, when I get up, I have to bend over and re-adjust.
Feels kind of fussy. Is it just me?
