To amp up her look, Latifah accessorized with diamond stud earrings and covered her straight tresses with a black cap that featured a sparkling silver headband and a long brim. When it came down to the shoes, the “Girls Trip” star completed her look with a pair of ankle boots. The leather silhouette featured a chunky round toe and sat on a thick square heel.

A go-to shoe style for many, ankle boots are extremely versatile shoes that can feature a variety of heel styles. Boots that stop at the ankle can be practical, dressy, casual, minimal, showy and more. Chelsea boots, combat boots and booties are all types of ankle boots.
