French Girls Are Going Crazy for This Ankle-Boot Trend

Natasha Ramsay-Levi's collections for Parisian It-girl brand Chloé are never short of pieces that catch like wildfire. I remember the first time I saw the burnt orange, pony-print suit featured in her debut collection for the brand. It was love at first sight (even if my budget would never stretch to it). Oftentimes, the pieces that become most prevalent—in Paris and beyond—are her pitch-perfect accessories. It is safe to say Chloé's Rylee boots reached cult-status earlier this year, and what has ensued can only be described as a cutout boot frenzy. Seen on the feet of pretty much every editor, influencer and model over fashion month, this boot style—whether the original style or a new iteration from a different label—is bound to stick around.

From suede to snake print to pearl-embellished, the high-street is hitting this trend hard and giving us countless different options to choose from. We recently studied the virtual shopping baskets of French girls and discovered they were snapping up two different black versions from two lesser-known affordable brands. Wear them to toughen up any dress or skirt or with jeans or cropped trousers. Keep scrolling for our favourite cutout boots at every price point.
