The other day we posted a snap to Who What Wear UK's Instagram (shameless follow us shout-out!) of all of Topshop's coolest new-in shoes and asked you to pick your favourite. The unanimous winner was a pair of burgundy fringed ankle boots. With a low block heel and subtle detailing, these are some of the best and most wearable statement ankle boots around—but they also share something in common with all of the other ankle boots we're lusting after right now: the color red. They're all shades of red—burgundy, claret, merlot, berry, scarlet… Whatever the hue, we guarantee you will want them.
They're the perfect way to start punctuating your existing summer wardrobe with a little autumn-facing newness—honest. Red boots solve all manner of sartorial problems. Bored of your floral dress? Add red boots. Don't know how to update those old jeans? Same again. Looking for a talking point to elevate a basic outfit? Yup, you guessed it. And with every price point covered—from Saint Laurent and Balenciaga through to the aforementioned Topshop creations, along with Zara and Uterque—you certainly won't find it hard to tag onto this wardrobe winner.
