If there’s one thing that my wardrobe would be incomplete without, it would be printed ankle boots. And in particular, these leopard pony skin ones I picked up in the January sales last year on a total whim. Granted, I never in a million years thought I’d get much wear out of them, but alas they’ve proven me wrong and I’ve become stupidly attached to them.
Printed ankle boots can look a little scary, I’ll admit, but they’re a whole lot more versatile than you’d first think and they’ve quickly become one of my wardrobe essentials. I love to pair mine with an monochromic outfit to add some interest and I’m yet to find a colour they don’t actually go with. Black? Always. Navy? Of course. Burgundy? Everytime. Leopard print is my absolute favourite (blame a certain Queen Chung) so I may be biased, but there’s so many patterns and variations of the ankle boot out there, then there’s one for everyone and their style tastes. Next on my list is the perfect snake skin-effect pair. They’ll look amazing with cropped kick flare jeans, don’t you think?
Anyway, I’ve compiled a little moodboard of my favourites – from the more affordable options to the real high end pairs that you can only really swoon at from a distance. As you can see, if there’s a certain pattern that’s caught your eye recently, chances are there’s an ankle boot variation of it. And if you’re a little hesitant to go all out print, there’s plenty of muted versions available, I mean how cute are the dusty rose suede ankle boots below?! I love!
