It can be the smallest of details that take a simple pair of ankle boots from classic to current. Right now, that attention lies in—dare I say it—funky zip pulls. Think weirdly shaped, statement zip pulls that will catch the eye of a fellow fashion enthusiast and probably start a conversation.
Simple in attitude, sure, but don’t underestimate the flat ankle boot. This fall we’re urging you to push the outfit boundaries by styling a pair with cocktail dresses or other pieces that typically call for a heel. It adds a stylish flair and displays a whole lot of personality (plus, it’s unquestionably more comfortable).
The practicality aspects you’ve always loved about the flat boot are what makes it such a nice contrast for high-octane fashion pieces too. Try it as a finishing touch with sculptural jackets or oversized shapes.
I don’t need to tell you cowboy boots are back (that’s old news now). However, you might be wondering how to wear them. Who would have thought we’d see the return of the Western silhouette? The Western silhouette is dominating this year, and you either opt for a subtle cowboy boot or go all-out Dallas. Then the animal print trend has made its way into footwear, as snakeskin boots are having a moment. Many of the styles out there have Cuban heels and square toes in black leather, which give them a modern update.
