Put the boot in

Deirdre McQuil­lan has a wide se­lec­tion of an­kle wear for the dis­cern­ing fol­lower of fash­ion

The Irish Times Magazine - - FASHION -

An­kle boots are fash­ion es­sen­tials and there are lots of them about at the mo­ment. Com­fort is key but the true power of the an­kle boot is in the many dif­fer­ent 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 of leop­ard. And of course there are the cow­boy boots best let off the leash with tucked in jeans or leg­gings.

Plat­form soles can give you more height and block heels, that give more noise and poise to the stride, are in­vest­ment pieces and in vogue this sea­son.

Choices are broad for win­ter and the trend for white boots thanks to Off White and Ba­len­ci­aga con­tin­ues – an ac­quired taste for some and high main­te­nance, though their bright­ness re­ally en­livens any coat, suit or dress.

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.

Here’s a se­lec­tion of ev­ery­thing from ¤ 39.95 for a clas­sic black flat with zip back and sil­ver heel from Zara to the sharp edged lethal look­ing leop­ard print stiletto sock boots from Ba­len­ci­aga – yours for ¤ 1195 - with lots of other op­tions to shake up the win­ter wardrobe and keep you stylishly grounded this win­ter.
