I've been searching for the perfect pair of metallic ankle boots for over a year. If that seems excessive, I think so, too. But, first, I imagined metallic ankle boots without having actually seen a pair. This is a common approach of mine. Dream it. Then find it. As a personal stylist for women, I do this for my clients, too. That's part of the fun of the job.
My theory was that metallic ankle boots would be an amazing neutral. After all, you've likely heard me champion mixed metals for a couple of years now. Metallic ankle boots seemed like the ideal completion of an outfit with metal accessories. To be true to my personal style, I have been looking for a pair that are show stoppers, but not too over the top, reasonably priced (because this is an experiment) AND had a heel height lower than 3 1/2 inches. That's a tall order.
I finally found a pair from the UK and ordered! While waiting on those, I discovered Topshop's latest version has a lower heel height! Success! Here's what I've learned: metallic boots are a MUST HAVE. They go with everything. With this in mind, I want to help YOU find your perfect pair. So, below you'll find a gallery of some of my favorite metallic ankle boots available now. Keep your eyes peeled, you'll certainly see more options in the coming months. Enjoy!
