It’s that time of year when the sandals and flip-flops get put away and us ladies reach at the back of our wardrobes for our trusted ankle boots. But this season, this style of boot has had a radical make-over, with statement sky scraper heels, clever cut-outs, mirrored finishes and textured soles, all featuring at the forefront.
No longer can you get away with a simple tailored plain pair, these days it’s all about choosing ankle boots that have had a high fashion make-over. So have a look at the practical and simply show stopping amongst our favourites for this autumn.
Zara – Nappa Leather Open Ankle Boot with Track Sole – £79.99
A great mix of styles here, with a soft track shoe sole, with a bang on trend cut out leather upper, and chunky heel to finish off the whole look. We love the brown and white colouring on this boot, a real twist on the typical monochrome. And the heel is just high enough at 3.5″. Sizes in 3 to 8. From Zara.
Topshop APPERLEY Brogue Chelsea Boots – £75.00
Made from 100% oxblood leather, these boots are what autumn is all about. The colour is just superb and the shine of the boot is a fabulous variation on the typical muted and matt shades, normally associated with this colour. Gorgeous. Sizes in 36 to 42. From Topshop.
ASOS – ADVOCATE Suede Mix Ankle Boots – £55.00
I love purple, and suede, and the great thing about autumn is that you do get days where it hasn’t been raining and you can get some fabulous showstopping boots on. This pair mix a gorgeous vinyl shine with the matt of the suede and feature a cute tassle at the front. Divine! Sizes in 2 to 9. From ASOS.

Aldo – Scolacia Boots – £100.00
More colour blocking here with these boots from Aldo in super hues of brown and blue, crafted with pony hair and leather, and featuring a gorgeous flash of vinyl at the heel. We love the combination of textures that give these boots a definite edge in the style ratings. Sizes in 3 to 6. From Aldo.
