Ankle boots are the French girls of the shoe world – effortlessly cool, with just the right amount of polish, they are a sure-fire way to add edge to any outfit. If you’re looking for a perennial pair, a pointed toe is the way to go – they’re a fail-safe in every fashion editor’s wardrobe. Diminutive heels mean you can comfortably stride around all day without sacrificing on style – Isabel Marant’s Western-inspired boots look great with double denim. Alternately, tap into one of this season’s biggest trends by adding a chunkier style to your accessories arsenal. Combat boots, lace-up designs and classic Chelsea styles make the perfect counterpoint to ultra-feminine midi dresses. However, if it’s your evening look that needs a boost, consider Gianvito Rossi’s vertiginous suede designs the perfect accompaniment to everything from after-dark tailoring to silk separates or your favorite mini dress. In short, without a pair of ankle boots, your closet is incomplete.
