I can't say enough good things about the outfit Selma Blair pulled together in this photo. Not only does she serve as a fine example of how to wear boots with tights, but she also shows how to do it in a manner that's as ideal for daytime.

While the sleeveless v-neck would also be great with bare legs or sheer hose, the black tights and high heeled ankle boots really send the outfit off the charts.

Another noteworthy element to this ensemble is the design of the ankle boots. If you look closely, you'll notice that the shafts are looser around the ankles than they are on a lot of other short boots. This is a great style for women who would like their calves to look a little bit thinner, but still want to wear ankle boots. Adding matte black tights only emphasizes the slimming effects.
