In order to pull off that oh-so-coveted off-duty look, there’s one thing that’s a total must: the ankle boot–but not just any ankle boot. As of late, the most practical of all boots has gotten a major upgrade. Giving off a more modern and contemporary aesthetic, ankle boots are now hugging the ankle a bit more closely, as seen on of-the-moment model Emily Ratajkowski. The Aska version she sported while out in LA not only elongates the leg, but offers a sleek vibe thanks to its patent sheen, adding an extra dose of glam. Pull off the edgy-chic shoe by styling as Emily does with a black mock turtleneck and cuffed straight-leg denim or rock them with a slip dress and a leather jacket for a downtown, evening-appropriate look.
