It’s time to give summer the boot.
When packing an umbrella becomes just as necessary as packing a lunch, you know autumn is here, and it’s here to stay. We’re now pushing slides and strappy sandals to the back of the wardrobe and bringing out fashion’s trans-seasonal saviour – the boot.
While a heeled leather ankle boot is the epitome of classic, this season we’ve kicked our boot game up a notch: it’s all about architecture.
Angular block heels in sculptural silhouettes have become a street style must-have, with Alexander Wang’s cut-out Chelsea boots front and centre. And the architectural boot goes beyond Wang – think Stuart Weitzman’s pointed suede booties with statement geometric heels, and the dipped gussets of Witchery’s sleek black ankle number.
Whether you’re pairing them with cuffed blue denim or a metallic midi-skirt, the structural boot will give your autumn outfit the punch it needs.
