Here’s how to wear ankle boots with skinny jeans.

How to wear  ankle boots with skinny jeans and why it works for an apple shape

For an apple shape, this trend of cuffing jeans works really well. Normally skinny jeans make apple shapes look even more top heavy because the long, lean line of the skinny jean further elongates our lower half making our upper half look even wider. The cuff  “shortens” the leg and helps to balance out our short torsos. For this look I cuff my jeans twice. I actually prefer the two smaller folds over the one large fold. I think this is a matter of personal preference. You just want to cuff it so either a little ankle shows or it sits right above your ankle boot. Again, this is a matter of preference.
