Step into new season: the ankle boot

09/09/2011

Lanvin Fall/Winter 2011 accessories / ankle boots trend report
It was that very photo of Lanvin Fall 2011 collection that made me crave a pair of black ankle boots. Because they are seriously beautiful. And sexy. And go with everything from jeans to evening dresses. And I don’t have any. The latter was seriously damaging for my sensitive stylish self.

Once the initial rush of feelings faded into calmness, I spent an appropriate amount of time searching for my ideal match. I needed those few weeks to come in terms with my new love for black because I’ve always favoured tan over any other colour when it came to shoes and accessories, so it was almost like a change of religion. There were other colour options, of course, but black was the one calling my name.

I began with TheOutnet and Kurt Geiger as they seemed to have the best selection of stylish and reasonably priced footwear. At the end, though, I saw THEM and suddenly everything became organic and natural – the newly found Paciottis (accompanied by a much-welcomed discount), the fit, the look and the ease of communication between the booties and the rest of my wardrobe. This was one of a few, but much needed, additions to greet and meet Autumn 2011. And here are a few inspiration from the catwalk and a shopping list to get you off on the right foot.

  13. Natalie, believe it or not, I have only one pair of ankle booties by YSL. Well, no two now with Ninan Ricci lace booties. I always thought that to wear those one must have a flawless pair of leggs.I, let's face it, will never be that lucky girl but I absolutely love seeing ankle booties on the right girl. I think you selection is gorgeous! Wishing you wonderful Fall weekend. :-)
