A combination that belongs in fashion heaven, that’s what. I’ve loved these boots since I saw them on Chloe Sevigny for Miu Miu’s A/W ad campaign, and this mint colourway has me coming over all breathless. I’ve been trying to figure out if they’re worth the spend – having decided that my beloved Isabel Marants, over which I agonised for months, most definitely are – but they really don’t look like the type of shoes I’ll get an awful lot of wear out of.

Those lace trousers, on the other hand, would, I reckon, look just as good with my Converse as they would with a pair of pumps and so they’ll be getting an in-the-flesh visit before long. (Zara’s tailoring comes in sizes so unpredictable that I can very rarely bring myself to buy online.)

Is there anything really making your wallet tingle this season?
