From combat boots to fake snake: what to put your feet in this season
Looking for some on-trend ankle boots? There’s no shortage of options
Ankle boots: this selection should keep you stylishly grounded this winter
Ankle boots are fashion essentials, and there are lots about at the moment. Comfort is key, but the true power of ankle boots is in the many ways they can be worn.
Combat boots toughen up a floral midi, sleek kitten heels put a finishing touch to a skirt, and fake snake or python steal the show, knocking the spots off leopard. And then there are cowboy boots, best let off the leash with tucked-in jeans or leggings. Platform soles to give you more height, and block heels to give more noise and poise to the stride, are investment pieces in vogue this season.
Choices are broad for winter, although the trend for white boots, thanks to Off-White and Balenciaga, continues – an acquired taste for some and high maintenance, although their brightness really enlivens any coat, suit or dress.
There are lace-up Victorian styles, biker boots, and any number of zany colours like purple, green velvet or metallic
There are lace-up Victorian styles, fake snakes, biker boots, slick variations on the classic black in suede or leather and any number of zany colours like purple, green velvet or metallic.
