Sometimes it’s the little touches that take your outfit from average to enviable. Celebrities have stylists to calculate all the complicated nuances of putting together a look, but we aren’t all so fortunate. Luckily, tFS has put together some celeb-inspired styling tips and tricks to help you put together a look that’s got that extra oomph! This week, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, and Pippa Middleton show you how to wear fall’s trendy footwear, the ankle boot.
Tip #1: Wear ankle boots with socks and rolled up denim like Jennifer Aniston
If you had Jennifer Aniston’s Prada suede lace-up ankle boots, wouldn’t you want to roll up your jeans to show them off? Pair lace-up heeled ankle boots with cuffed denim and your cutest pair of socks.

Tip #2: Follow Pippa Middleton and pair ankle boots with a fall sweater dress
As the sister of a princess, Pippa Middleton knows she’s going to get photographed on her way to work—luckily she always looks chic and put-together. The return of fall doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to dresses; start with a warm sweater dress, and add a printed scarf, bright bag, and ankle boots and you’ve got the perfect fall look. For even cooler climates, this outfit would also work with black tights.
