Forget about sock boots, these are IT
Now I’ve got a confession to make, I’m not normally a big boot fan (though if you are, do check out our sock boots edit). In fact, I’d usually spend winter quite literally freezing my socks off because I’m so intent on persevering with pumps. Being relatively short at 5ft3, I just think boots of any kind make my legs look shorter. Even ankle boots.
However, I might just change my mind this season, thanks to the below boots. I first spotted them on fashion influencer Laura Fantacci of WIT Blog a few days ago on Instagram, and I was hooked. Seeing as Laura is also petite, and she could definitely pull them off, I thought I’d go in store and try them on myself.
And guess what? They’re as incred as they look. First off, they look really flattering on, and they are in one of AW17’s must-have shades: burgundy.
Next up, you’ve got your contrasting heel, a cylindrical block affair in faux crocodile skin style – plus it makes it easy to walk in them.
Laura styled hers with a cashmere jumper and floral skirt in matching shades, but you could also wear them with a floaty maxi dress, or flared checked suit.
These are already sold out online in a lot of sizes, so you might be better off buying them in store.
They are a bit pricey, but they are leather so not a bad investment at all. If you need convincing that is.
