1) Bermuda Shorts + Utility Jacket + Tote
A different but unique trend that has risen out of nowhere is the bermuda short. It’s an ideal pick for spring because it offers more coverage and has a cool-girl edge to it if styled the right way. For an effortless, model-off-duty vibe, wear some black western-inspired ankle boots with denim bermuda shorts. Complete the look with a utility jacket and oversized tote.

2) Trousers + Sweatshirt
Both sweats and sweatshirts have come full circle and are now stylishly worn by influencers and bloggers alike. Simply put, chucking on an oversized sweatshirt with a pair of trousers is the modern day “business casual” uniform. Add some sleek, kitten heel booties for a chic street style look as modeled by Anine Bing. Note that the reverse outfit also works – try sweat pants with a blazer and black ankle boots!

3) Trench + Cropped Jeans
Spring does translate into the rainy season after all. The trench coat is the perfect transitional coat to wear – and bonus points if it’s a trendy leather trench. You can throw on some cropped jeans to let those little black booties peak through, thus completing your cool girl aesthetic. Wear this look to work or on the weekends.

4) Cargo Pants + Lightweight Sweater
The utility trend is blowing up this season, and the easiest way to get on the bandwagon is with cargo pants. Tuck those pants into industrial black ankle boots and finish it off with a lightweight sweater. Remember that classic utility colors like camo, camel, and olive, will always pair flawlessly with black so you really can’t go wrong. We love how the boots pop and make a bold statement against this neutral outfit.

5) Mini Dress
On particularly warm spring days, you can bust out your cutest mini dress. To toughen up a more feminine look, style it with chunky lug sole boots. Pointed-toe ankle boots offer a more feminine vibe. If bare legs are a little too much, you can opt for wearing some sheer tights too.

6) Graphic Tee + Vintage Jeans
One can never ever go wrong with a graphic t-shirt and some high-waisted, vintage denim. This effortlessly chic ensemble can be taken to another level with some black ankle boots. Keep the look updated and trendy with a baguette or shoulder bag – and add a trench coat if layering is needed to brave the chill.

7) Bra Top + Mini Skirt + Blazer
For a feminine, bombshell look, try taking advantage of the lingerie trend. A lace crop top coupled with a mini skirt is a force to be reckoned with, especially when paired with some chunky black ankle boots. Industrial boots are a great idea because they help balance out the sexier look. You can also throw on an oversized blazer if you want to tone down the more risque vibe.

8) Utility Jumpsuit + Baseball Cap
A boilersuit teamed with black chelsea boots is a trending combo this season. We’re loving how this blogger kept her look understated and cool with a baseball cap and black sunglasses. Your options are truly endless when it comes to jumpsuits and black ankle boot pairings. For another variation, try a feminine, wide-leg jumpsuit with pointed-toe boots.

9) High-Waisted Jeans & Cropped Jacket
Since black boots are so versatile, you can wear them with the most basic outfits and they just work. When it comes to everyday pieces like high-waisted jeans and a cropped jacket, opt for bolder black ankle boots that feature vinyl, a unique block heel, or square toe. The boots will seamlessly blend in with your look without feeling boring.
