Autumn/Winter must have:

Summer is almost over and as the sunshine disappears, so do our summer shoe collections.It’s time to swap the sandals for a stylish, weather appropriate footwear choice and the ankle boot is the perfect shoe to help us transform our wardrobes during the winter months.

Every year the ankle boot seems to re-appear with some fantastic new design detail and my favourite at the moment is the use of cut out paneling. This style is the perfect combination of the summer sandal and the winter boot and personal favourites of mine include the ASOS Auckland cut out ankle boots priced at a reasonable £55, and the Topshop Jasper cut out ankle boots priced at £75. The most interesting thing about this style of shoe is the room for experimentation. Styled down with jeans and patterned socks or styled for the evening with sheer tights or bare skin. The look is so versatile and options are available within every price range. Whether it be high-street or high end. When considering your winter wardrobe transformation, the ankle boot is definitely a key piece to invest in and is sure to be re-invented year after year.
