There are trends that slowly make their way into the mainstream over many months, and then there are trends that seem to explode onto the scene overnight. The silhouette of an over-the-ankle statement boot belongs to the latter category. In seemingly an instant, I started seeing no fewer than ten girls a day in L.A. wearing this type of shoe, whether with cropped flared denim or A-line mini skirts. A micro-trend within this particular boot-style trend, is elaborate, tapestry-inspired patterns. Whether metallic brocade, velvet and screen-printed, or floral suede, an intricate pattern is a fun way to add some personality to your feet. I'd been eyeing this stunning Loeffler Randall pair, but when I came across this jacquard Top Shop pair for a fraction of the price, I purchased them on the spot without hesitation. When they arrived, the entire team oohed and ahh-ed over just how luxe and expensive they look. Top Shop knows how to turn out a great and affordable on-trend piece, and they nailed it with this design. I immediately threw them on with my chocolate-brown suede mini dress, and plan to get a lot of mileage out of them this season.
