That's Not My Age is going all Ed Miliband today - no, no, no, I'm not trying to steal my brother's job, I'd just like to point out that like the real Labour Party, I'm not just in touch with the country's elite! Now, lots of lovely TNMA followers said they wanted the men's brogue boots featured in my last post, and whilst on a mission to find something similar at a more affordable price, AllSaints asked me to write about their women's boots. And lo, what did I find over on their website? This masculine-inspired, suede ankle boot. OK, it's more of a workboot/brogue hybrid but it is the closest thing I've seen so far and I think it's pretty neat.
When it comes to the sartorial potential of a ladies ankle boot, this season there are three options. The heritage trend - add an outdoorsy spin with a tweed jacket, Shetland wool pullover and cords. This look is not just for toffs, remember, 'We're all in this together,' oops sorry wrong party.
Or try Marc Jacobs-inspired grunge glamour by teaming ankle boots with a maxi skirt:
Go for classic androgynous style with crisp, selvedge jeans (make that cropped pants if you're not a friend of denim) and a masculine jacket.
How would you wear them?
