Forget the cold and the rain for a moment; our entrance into autumn means we have the pleasure of picking some new ankle boots to accompany us through the season and through all those puddles. We love everything low boots have to offer, whether they’re flat or heeled, suede or leather, pointy or round. More so than something knee-high, the ankle boot is incredibly easy to wear. There’s very little they won’t go with and they work a treat for petite women or women with larger calves. Invest in the right pair and they will become your greatest companion through the long, cold months and as you’ll see below, there are enough styles to please everybody. What’s more, even if you buy them now while it’s still relatively warm, they look particularly cute with dresses and skirts.
Ankle Boot with Zip, €69.95, Zara
These boots will satisfy your desire for some 70s style. After watching The Man from U.N.C.L.E. we’re all about reliving the style of the 60s and 70s. The bottle green colour packs impact without turning heads in the wrong way. These bad boys will look amazing with any style of jeans, be they flared, straight or cropped. Add a nice knit sweater and your new favourite autumn/winter outfit is sorted.
Leather Boots, €59.99, Zara
These little black ankle boots are perfect for your everyday life. The heel may be a little high but the chunkyness makes it easy to wear and a much more comfortable affair.
Gianvito Rossi, €590, matchesfashion.com
These are Gianvito Rossi’s signature boots; they really focus on giving you a silhouette to die for. These will look fabulous with or without tights and can be worn throughout all four seasons so we reckon they’re a worthy investment. They’ll add serious glamorous to every outfit you pair them with.
Isabel Marant Grover Suede Boots, €690, Net-a-Porter.com
Every time you look down at those boots, you’ll want to do a little ankle turn each way to take them all in – buttery suede, just enough height to elongate the leg, acutely ladylike proportions.
Pointed Chelsea Boots, €76.04, Asos
Pointy shoes are very in at the moment, and these boots are the queens of points. They have an edgy Rock’n’Roll feel to them and would look outrageously good with rolled up jeans.
Leather Flat Ankle Boots, €123.04, Asos
These also have the Rock’n’Rock chic feel to them but they have a round toe which makes them easier to wear in your everyday life. The padded back gives them a bit of character too. So much more than your average ankle boot.
Colt Style Leather Boots, €295, The Kooples
These furry beauties have long been on our wishlist *Puts them in shopping cart and will order them after next paycheck*. They are an all-time classic shape with a bit of quirky detail to keep your outfit on point all through the season. These will work like magic no matter how you wear them.
Suede Leather Ankle Boots, €79.95, Mango
These suede numbers are perfect for everyone and anyone who is fed up with wearing black all winter – this season is all about all shades of blue. Embrace that and mix different colours freely.
High Heel Glitter Boot, €49.95, Zara
This sparkly style is a fun addition to your closet- they’ll spice up the office wardrobe or can become your go-to boots for an evening out. A glittery detail is always a fabulous touch to any outfit (and over the Christmas season, how tremendous are your feet going to look in these?).
Michael Kors Leopard Print Boots, €225, Net-a-porter.com
Who doesn’t love a bit of leopard print in their wardrobe; if it’s tasteful then it works. And this pattern is very nicely done. The boot is small so it’s only a detail, but leopard print shoes always look amazing with dark jeans and a white or grey t-shirt.
High Heel Ankle Boot, €49.95, Zara
Adorable. The little cut-out adds a bit of modernity to the classic Chelsea.
Rag & Bone Leather Ankle Boots, €460, Net-a-Porter.com
These Rag & Bone classics stand out thanks to their texture. They’re super durable, too- we’ll be headed into our second winter with last year’s version and they still look very respectable.
