MUST HAVE NOW- ANKLE BOOTS
April is the official season to say goodbye to all things summer- floral dresses, strappy sandals and salty hair and welcome in the winter blues. And this season the attention is all on the feet! In much of the country though, it is still far to warm to even think about dusting off your leather jacket, scarves and knee-high boots, however the ‘shoe bootie’ is one trend that is perfect to start sporting now!
Whether you call it the ‘bootie,’ ‘shoe bootie’ or ‘ankle bootie’ one thing is for certain; you must plant your perfectly pedicured toes into a pair of new season ankle boots asap! It is the perfect trans-seasonal statement piece as it is not a pump heel and not a boot yet a mixture between the two which equals utter perfection.
When the ankle boot first graced us its presence a few seasons ago, no one knew it would have the same staying power as The Beatles. The Spring/ Summer 2010 runways were swarming with multiple versions of the ankle boot: Givenchy sent their models down in a black and white patterned version, Alexander Wang went deliciously Goth while 3.1 phillip lim and Dolce and Gabbana opted for a more conservative and pretty choice.
The ankle boot is officially everyone’s go-to style for the latest season, as it continues to reach new fashion heights. Whether you prefer suede wedges, patent platforms, or studded, buckled and zippered details the ankle boot gives everyone an option. Perfectly paired back with cropped tailored pants or to add a bit of heavier industrial grudge to a perfectly floral dress, no matter what you chose this winter one thing is for certain, your feet must be snugly planted in a pair of ankle boots.
