It's now or never if you're going to invest in one of this season's biggest shoe trends: high boots. And if you're after a particular style, then you might want to check out Dear Frances' Ana boots (yep, that's the Insta-famous shoe brand).
I say this, because even though they haven't even launched yet, they're very high on fashion influencers' wish lists on a global scale. In fact, the demand is such that the brand has had to place a second order for the black and brown croc styles already.
And it's no shocker to be honest. With its flattering knee-high length (but not too high that it'll look ridiculous if you're short), and slight slouchy calf, the Ana is elegant and gives a modern twist to the 70s trend.
Founder and designer Jane says, 'We're finding the pointed pull-on knee high to be one of our most asked about styles this season and it's definitely a trend that we're happy to be on board with - they're modern and directional yet still a timeless piece that will remain a focus in your wardrobe for many years to come. We've designed our Ana Boots with versatility in mind so they can be paired with everything from weekend denims and casual knitwear to tailored trousers or midline dresses through the working week.'
It also comes in a variety of prints and finishes. There are the aforementioned croc styles, as well as more classic smooth cream and pecan, and an altogether jazzier pony print.
Influencers across Europe such Emma Hill, Anne-Miek Kessels (@modeamour), Tina Maria Hansen (@_tinamaria), Veronica Giomini, Claire Rose Cliteur (@claartjerose), as well as Marta Pozzan and Laura Angelone in the US have all asked about the boots and celebs are joining in on the act too.
The team at Dear Frances has also had a request from Gigi and Bella Hadid’s stylist for a pair of the Black Croc and Cream styles.
I'll personally be adding the brown croc and pecan styles to my wish list and will be wearing them with a midi length cashmere dress all winter.
Race you to the checkout.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
