Style Theory: After a beautiful long summer it's time to turn our attention to Autumn/Winter wear. I must admit I prefer A/W clothing, the cosy knitwear, cool new shapes of jeans and ankle boots. This season ankle boots are big and come in so many guises, from ornate heels to metallic sheens, huge buckles to cowboy details..anything goes. There are some absolute beauties out there and they look just as good with dresses as they do with ankle length cropped jeans. They are slightly more 90-ish in their appearance, heavier, chunkier heels than the last the last few season that actual are flattering on your leg. Ankle boots are going to get chunkier and chunkier over the next season so this is just the beginning...

To start with my dream pair...
Gucci @Net A Porter £725
These are the dream boots, I must admit I am a sucker for a double G and these to me are Italian beauties. The price not so much, so here are a few more palatably priced similar Gucci-esque boots..
Topshop £82
These look a pretty good option and a fraction of the price, the heel looks pretty walkable in too.
Topshop £82
My favourite colour of boot, these would look amazing clashed with a yellow coat for a pure fashion forward AW16 look. Add a pair of ankle length cropped blue jeans and a slouchy navy blouse...love love this look.
Topshop £82
And of course I couldn't leave out the gold boots, keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the boots do the talking..
Topshop £82
A basic boot with a twist, make like the street style photo above and keep your look sleep and simple, a pair of jeans, a cashmere jumper but remember to match your the silver heel to silver hardware on your bag.
Topshop £79
I bought these boots last year and lived in them, they are really comfy and sit beautifully under crop kick flared jeans or trousers and will also look fab with maxi and midi dresses.
Office £82
If you, like me, have been yearning for a pair of Chloe Susannah's for ever..these are the best 'tributes' I have seen so far, they come in tan, white and black suede..haven's seen black leather as yet? I must admit I have a soft spot for the red after seeing them on Sienna Miller above a few years ago.
Senso boots @Very Exclusive UK £120
The boot of the season, these boots are very 'of the moment' they wont last you a life time but they are the kind of fashion item that is worth getting and then wearing to death (weather permitting - not great for UK rain obvs!) I have tried these on and am utterly obsessed, they are incredibly comfortable, stop at a flattering part of the leg and just look great on with dresses or jeans.
Just Cavalli @Very Exclusive £370
So out of my price range slightly but just spotted these and had to include them, I love them, they are the perfect length for dresses and look super chic on.
Daisy Street @Asos £34.99
Weirdly smitten with these boots they aren't leather so not sure how they would be in real life but they have all the components I am after this season, snakeskin, cowboy shape and a touch of dark red..
Clarks £95
Comfy snakeskin option from Clarks.
Mango £89.99
The buckle detail on these boots are so eyecatching, think I may have to invest in these.
Sam Edelman £140
If you are after this season's embroidered boots, these are the best I have seen. The cut (low) at the front is incredibly flattering on legs and the colours are chic and muted, showstoppers with class.
Boden £120
These are, so far, my favourite leopard print boots, they are animal print on cowhide and are a fab shape.

I have covered quite a range of themes there, these are my favourites from each theme. They are all 'dressier' boots and I will be writing a blog post next week with the best schoolrun/weekend boots ie: robust & waterproof but still look good.

In the meantime I am gazing longingly at the Guccis and Cavalli's and most probably ordering the Topshops and Asos ones!

Which ankle boots are catching your eye this season? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx
