These were the styles seen on the 2022-2023 runways and most likely to lead the way trend wise. In between seasons and transitional styles can be tricky. That’s why I love ankle boots to get us through as they’re so much more versatile, versus knee or over the knee boots. As they can be worn from late Summer into Fall all through Winter into Spring.

Style them with dresses or jeans, denim or leather jackets there are so many different styles for whatever your fashion vibe or mood is.

The List of 20+ Best Ankle Boots 2022:

1. Trending Boots: Chunky flat ankle boots, lace up buckle black biker boots and combat boots

I kept seeing these black leather chunky ankle boots all over Instagram with everything from summer dresses with an oversized cardigan to sweater dresses or leggings. In 2022 the chunky sole and combat boot trend’s continuing on. These chunky boots give a harder more grungy look and are a super comfortable option. The trend wasn’t forecast to last but here we are!

These are the best ankle boots 2022 with chunky soles that I found from shopping around online and my favorite instagram influencers. Starting at under $20, with mid-range boots around $250 for the Kurt Geiger Sting and Stinger Biker boots and Balmain as the best designer ankle boots with chunky soles option.

I couldn’t resist adding the Kurt Geiger black leather boots as the leather looks so luxe and for the stud and buckle details. They come in 2 lengths, crystal studded ankle boots and slightly longer calf height but still not knee high by any means.

Chelsea boots

The Chelsea boot will always be quintessentially English to me. I remember growing up in the country side in England and wearing flat Chelsea ankle boots with stirrup leggings to horse riding lessons.

Womens Chelsea boots have come a long way since then and comes in different styles from classic to chunky soled to heeled. The beauty of these besides how comfortable they are is that they just pull on.

While classic Chelsea boots will always be in style, the most fashion forward to wear Chelsea boots in 2022 is with a chunky sole and in black, white or a bold color.

If you’re planning on walking and not just sitting pretty, these are one of your best options and are going to be one of key boot trends for Fall boots.

The Chelsea boot goes way back to the Victorian era and the design’s the invention of the C J. Sparkes-Hall, boot maker to Queen Victoria

I remember wearing them horse riding back in the 90’s! They’ve been around for a century and their classic style is here to stay.

What are Chelsea boots

It’s the elastic sides. What gave them their name was back…

In the mid-1950s, a group…started frequenting the King’s Road area in West London. This group was named the ‘Chelsea Set’…they made the name ‘Chelsea’ synonymous with a new way of living and dressing…favoring the Paddock boots … the ultimate leisure accessory and hence were renamed to Chelsea Boots.

I’m not sure if there is just one style of ankle boots or booties that’s ‘best’ for dresses or shorts! Pretty much any style of boots go with dresses depending on the look you’re going from. It’s such a versatile look you can put your own spin on from flirty and feminine to grungy biker chick.

Cowboy ankle boots + boots with chunky heels

Cowboy boots were all over the Fall/Winter 2021 shows such as Isabel Marant and are always a LTK blogger favorite. However, they weren’t making many appearances at the 2022 runway shows except for at Coperni Spring Summer 2022. That doesn’t to ditch them this season, they’re always a classic you can turn to.

The key to making cowboy boots work for you is finding a color, shape and material you love that you can wear every year. I’m never going to be the girl in the crocodile cowboy boots but cute white leather ankle cowboy boots and Paris Texas stiletto crocodile print boots I can get behind.

Cowboy boots look super cute with denim shorts on warmer days and with a knit dress and Lack of Color hat on cooler days. I’ve always wanted cowboy boots ever since coming to America but it took me until last year to find the perfect pair.

When my husband said I needed waterproof, warm, sensible snow boots for our winter travel I was thinking clunky, dorky and outdoorsy styles. I know it’s the smart thing but I wasn’t too crazy about it.

My white waterproof, insulated ankle boots are from The North Face are sold out but I found these 2 similar alternatives Moon Boot Pro-Tech and Moon Boot Bootie. They check all of the practical boxes while still being a little stylish and giving good grip so you fon’t face plant.

I wore these waterproof boots in the rain and snow and they kept my feet warm and dry. If you want extra warmth you can always pop on a pair of wool socks.
