From the mod Chelsea boots of the swinging '60s to the chunky, military-inspired styles of the '90s, ankle boots have been a reliable and practical part of our wardrobe for decades now. The true beauty of the ankle boot is its versatility: They work as well with jeans and a T-shirt as they do with dresses and skirts.

Ahead, we've gathered 33 pairs of fall ankle boots that are cool, wearable and worth the investment. Now go get them!

Block heel ankle boots

A pair of black leather ankle boots with a sturdy (not too short, not too tall) block heel might just be the most essential footwear in your closet. We believe every woman should have a pair of these to wear with everything from skinny jeans and sweaters to dresses and leather jackets.
