Ankle and shoe boots

Random appearing on the catwalks the last couple of years, the ankle and shoe boots are finally this fall a strong, well defined trend.

I always liked ankle boots, i think that they are a stylish type of shoes, great with opaque leggings and short skirt. I already can imagine my favorite outfit for this autumn: smart ankle boots (i imagine now the combination with my Versace mauve high heels ankle boots in mind) and black half-the-knee long black pleated office dress (i saw one like this the other day in a Mango window). Uhu! I almost can't wait the fall to come!

The shoe boots are the smaller brother of the ankle version. Because of their fit, shoe boots are better with pants (try them with wide leg pants for a funky look) or with even with capri pants.

Now, what can we find in this season collections?

Somehow expected, Louboutin has a wide selection of this kind of boots. In suede or patent, they have a rock-chic look, with the signature red sole, flattering cut and zip details.

As usual, Marc Jacobs takes this trend and reinterprets it in its own signature grunge style. For example, wear those chunky bowling style ankle boots (pictured in the right), or the suede ones in left with a pair of skinny black jeans and a large tote and you will be sure to not pass unnoticed.

The coveted Marc by Marc Jacobs Suede ruffle boots have also a smaller version: Ruffle-top ankle boots. The caramel leather boots have a ruffle trim with self-tie bow and an almond-shaped toe and are great for a relaxed day outfit.

My favorite pair so far: Miu Miu leather ankle boots! With high conic heels and pointed toe, they are perfect for an all black, stylish outfit.
