When it comes to back-to-school shopping, finding versatile footwear can be very key. Having a few easy, go-to styles that match nearly everything in your child’s closet can make the difference between a frazzled morning and a calm one. Ankle boots for girls are perfect for just this reason. As soon as the days cool just a bit, she can start wearing styles like the ones featured below with skirts. When the cold hits, the same styles look perfect with jeans or when paired with tights or leggings. And although basic black or brown leather is classic, a metallic may just make her whole ensemble pop.
