Bored of your winter boots? Not quite ready to bare your ankles in a pair of slip-ons? Good news: There’s a very simple way to welcome spring 2018 into your wardrobe without compromising warmth, and that’s with a pair of new-season ankle boots. Whether you’re in the market for something functional and flat, seriously statement or sensibly sturdy, there’s something for everyone here.
For spring, there are shimmering silver iterations still going strong (they have moved on from party season and feel fresh and perfect for wearing right now with indigo denim and an oversized blazer). Ganni’s Western boots have been a hit with the fashion crowd and sparked a number of high-street imitations. As ever, some trends have stuck, but this season, white boots and combat styles come in new shapes with subtle heel details. And finally colour: There’s a rainbow of shades to be seen in right now, which we’re welcoming with open arms, but when it comes to styling and surprising versatility, pink has come out on top.
