If you've been searching for a quick way to give last winter's worn-out clothes an electrifying jolt into the new, then we think the answer has been found: Floral ankle boots. One pair provides endless opportunities for daily outfit pick-me-ups. Sure, you love your black leather bikers to the moon and back (and, surprisingly, so does Olivia Palermo), and you've no doubt created a range of trusty ankle boot options over the years that you can't bear to kick out of the house, but this new trend for statement, botanical prints and brocades has more oomph than any.
Peeking out from under a pair of cropped, flared and frayed jeans, a pair of bloomin' boots will instantly draw eyes away from last year's black overcoat and generate coos instead. Combine with a plain dress and the effort-to-efficacy ratio just jumped up a notch. Add these to a pleated, metallic-colour skirt and you've just nailed a fetching party ensemble in a flash.
As Man Repeller's Leandra Medine has said of her debut footwear line: "Shoes are an incredibly escapist accessory for so many women. They're an easy way to feel good by the simple act of looking down." And we're fairly certain that the winning combination of practicality (just how often do you wear this kind of footwear option?) and decoration can fulfill even the wildest style dreams you may have for autumn. No wonder many of them are selling like hotcakes.
So, will YOU catch the bouquet? Shop from our favourite floral ankle boots and enjoy #TuesdayShoesday to its fullest…
