Searching for (Chloe) Susannas - Get the look for less..

10.26.2016










Style Theory: Every so often there is a piece of clothing, a pair of shoes, a handbag I think would make my wardrobe sing..would elevate my looks and go with everything I own. Step forward Chloe Susanna boots, these studded beauties have been around for years, I have looked but dismissed in the past as not only are they entirely out of my price range but they have not been a necessity, well not until now....

They seem to be everywhere at the moment, I know,  but I love the styling of them. The soft leather, the wide opening at the ankle that makes your legs look thinner, the heel height. They look great with bare legs and midi dresses, leather leggings or ankle length kick flare skinny jeans. The Susanna's look pretty cool on but are completely out of my price range so I thought I would check out for similar available on the high street but without the insane price tag....
Office £85
These Office boots are the closest to the Chloe Susanna boots I could find on the high street..would love them to have gold hardware though. They also come in a fab red colour - these look amazing on they look great with denim or grey jeans (see Sienna Miller in the streetstyle photos above) They have sold out online in the red but I have seen them in store. Also liking the tan version, they look expensive..
Office £85
I really like the gold hardware on these tan boots, they look authentic and cool.
River Island £45
I have tried these on they look great, more cowboy-esque, they are real leather and have a nice height heel that lifts your foot and leg up enough for a flattering look with dresses.
River Island £45
A little less fussy but still leather and a great price..
Dune @JohnLewis £185
These are a little higher and less cowboy bootish, but will look fab with dress and ankle length trousers and jeans. More ladylike but still with the studded details.
Topshop £82
So nothing like the Chloe boots, I have completely gone off on a tangent, but these would be my second style choice, very AW16, great (walkable) heel, look fab under jeans etc and with dresses. I love the deep red version of these but for practicality and an every day boot, these are pretty cool.
&Other Stories £125
A ladylike take on the Susannas, these are delicate and beautiful..
H&M £29.99
Reasonable, studded detail and a good height heel, not leather but at that price they are a good buy..
Senso @Veryexclusiveuk £225
Senso boots are always beautifully made and incredibly comfortable, these also come in black suede and look beautifully classic with an edge thanks to the stud details.

My Style

I have mainly been living in my Hush short eskimo parka - honestly if you are looking for a coat this one is beautiful, so warm and cosy and I love the blue faux fur, super sumptuous.

Yesterday we headed to Hampton Court (it is pretty close to us and I love it there, we spent too much time in the magic garden as it was about to shut for the winter so the kids wanted to play in there for extra long! Then a cold autumn picnic and a mad run through the maze! Then Pizza Express and I popped to the cimema later to see Bridget Jones' Baby. I wore my dungers..no waistband is working for me at the moment (eating out of control!) and my Monsoon lace top and my fave American Vintage cardi..


Are you a fan of the Chloe Susanna boots, have you seen/bought any similar, if so I would love to hear I am forever searching for similar!! Thanks for reading, I hope half term (if you are on it) is treating you well...Until next time Fran xxx

  1. Hey Fran, love the Susannas but sadly my budget only stretches to Office, although my version have black leather with gold hardware not silver. Xxx

  2. I bought the Office ones with gold hardware but had to return them. The leather is very stiff and unlike the Chloe ones the opening is not wide in fact very narrow. It means they are not comfortable at all. I am past the stage of thinking I will wear uncomfortable footwear in - I've made too many expensive errors in the past so if they are not comfortable enough from the get-go, I won't keep them! However I am about to order similar style ones from Hush - similar gold hardware although with only one buckled strap - but they look loveky. Fingers crossed! I love the Chloes too but cannot stretch to them!

  3. I really like the cool style of these boots but I have to wear my heels high (I'm only 5'2) But that monsoon lace top is calling me! I envy your cool look France
