These slick, buckle-up ankle boots are just calling for some black, skinny drainpipes and if not those then the tailored cigarette pants of next season’s androgynous trend. See by Chloe has once again targeted the trends and made an ankle-boot that is not only practical (I’m thinking that even I could walk in those heels), but contemporary. For me, it also provides a hint of the label’s Parisian roots, with their stylish simplicity and effortlessly chic feel.
If these really work it for you, then make the investment, as they will be an investment in terms of next season. This coming A/W’11 we’ll be seeing a lot of buttons and buckles. We’ll be strapping up our Mary-Janes, buckling our stylish T-Bars and leaning back on sturdy, wearable, day-time heels.
Chloe’s Black Solfo Platform Suede Buckle Ankle Boot fit the bill, pretty much down to a T (not a T-Bar). With their curving seam and luxe suede texture they will also prove themselves trend-worthy for texture play looks and for teaming with your crotched dress or tunic.
Aesthetically, these are a little on the clumpy side for my tastes – I’m much more of a pointed stiletto wearer, than a sturdy heel walker (this may be the reason why I fall over so much). However, as we all know, and (I’m sure) experienced once or twice, we fashionistas do love to suffer for fashion.
