When you're stepping out in a pair of short cut boots -- think ankle boots or booties -- the look is quite different than a pair of knee-high boots. This super-modern footwear pushes your outfit into chic, au courant territory. The only problem? When you're used to accessorizing a more classic look, styling an ensemble around this cropped boot can feel exasperating. Take a deep breath and enjoy yourself -- choose one or two strong accessories to avoid going overboard and you'll look on-trend and put together every time.

Oversize Scarf and Wayfarers

When you're a fan of a street-style aesthetic, pulling an outfit together means effortless chic -- even if you spend hours planning it! Start with a black lightweight sweater tucked into a black high-waisted miniskirt. Pull on a pair of sheer black tights and slide your feet into flat black ankle boots. An all-black look is a simple way to become accustomed to accessorizing since you're starting with a neutral, one-tone palette. Now grab your favorite oversize, printed scarf -- think poppy orange and indigo floral -- and wrap it loosely around your neck a couple times. Pop on a pair of black wayfarer sunglasses and you're done.

A Hat

If your aesthetic tends to include menswear-inspired touches, your accessories are a breeze to coordinate -- low on frill and high on tailored impact, opt for a hat even if the rest of your ensemble is a mix of feminine and masculine pieces. Imagine yourself in a gray-hued, gauzy tunic with crochet-inset detailing. Pull on a pair of dark blue skinny jeans and tuck them into minimalistic brown ankle boots with a chunky stacked heel. Finish your look off with a dark brown fedora -- it's that simple.

Stud Detailing

A pair of stiletto-heel booties can really get you in the mood for edgy accessorizing, particularly when you're decked out in a feminine ensemble. Imagine yourself in a peach-hued silky mini-dress with a round neckline and short sleeves over bare legs. You've popped your feet into a pair of nude ankle booties with a dangerously high heel. Add a contrasting, tough vibe with a punk-inspired studded belt. Think bone-hued belt with gold pyramid studs wrapped around your natural waistline -- super hot.

A Bag That Reflects Your Style

For the girl with a super-focused sense of her own style or one who is formulating a new aesthetic, choosing footwear and accessories makes a huge difference in the vibe you project. For the feminine-minded fashionista, opt for simple boots and classic, feminine bags. Think heather gray crew neck sweater over light-blue straight-leg jeans and charcoal booties with cone heels. Grab a black satchel with with gold hardware. If you prefer more of an urban-chic look, go for a faded lilac oversize T-shirt over distressed gray jeans. Step into black moto-inspired ankle boots and pull on a metallic black hobo bag.
