We are kinda in the middle of the bleak midwinter here in Blighty. Except its not been that bleak, I mean its very cold but we have had an astonishing amount of sun shine days. I mean I’ve spent as much time in ballet flats and trainers as full on boots. To be honest I’ve not worn a knee high boot all season.
Which begs the question is the knee high needed? I’m not seeing them in the high street at all and they evoke romantic seventies vibes which is not the current edgy street style that’s trending on the catwalk and well, on the street.
Whats hot is the humble ankle boot in almost any carnation. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, Topshop do a pretty unbeatable line in ankle booting.
Take note ladies, the weather is changing and winter ain’t over yet. We are due some rain and gloom so lets keep spirits high by investing in a new pair of ankle boots.
Topshop have a mega collection, changing all the time.
At the moment I’m loving…
The Milly Frill.
Frills are the ubiquitous addition to everything right now. Frills on your shirt on your collar around your wrist, why not on your boot.
Leather pleating, leather frills do something to my brain. Just a little OTT, probably would’nt wear these to Tesco’s but lovely for an occasion or a day in the City.
Klash Snake Boot
What I love about this boot is that it is extravagant yet practical.
Love the snake, love the black and white, love love love the flat heel.
Mickey Cone Heel Boot
Ok, this is a bit of a curve ball and a huge nod to the 1980’s. It’s suede, it’s burgundy and it had a weird heel but I love it. This boot totally on my hot list at least until spring shows itself!
For all of these boots and more
Love DSB X
