Hi, welcome to the board.

First, how old is your fashion book? Ankle length and almost any other length is the style now, so I can't see where it would be inappropriate to wear. I would wear whatever you feel is comfortable yet appropriate and stylish. Give consideration to the weather, especially if you will be walking any distance. The same goes for footwear, if you are wearing something that works with boots, and you have a pair that you like, wear them. I would go with a lower heel if you are going to be doing a lot of walking outdoors.

Have a great time, and enjoy the history of the day.

How perceptive of you- and what a test! The fashion book is Georgiou 1993.
