One trending item in wardrobes this fall seems to be the ankle boot. Most are shown with low heels, but there are high-heeled versions and, of course, some wedge varieties that resemble the unfortunate wedge sneakers that were so popular a few years back.
I saw many young women in ankle boots last winter in Los Angeles. In my experience, the looks these girls adopt go national not long after. So I'm betting ankle boots, mostly in ever-popular black, will be big sellers this fall and winter.
The model above is from Louis Vuitton, and it is expensive, more than $1,400. Fortunately, designers and retailers are featuring the look at many price levels. Some examples are below.
(This boot, with its elastic side panels, is technically a Chelsea boot and is reminiscent of a style made famous in the 1960s by the Beatles. Chelsea boots are being shown this fall in styles for men and women.)
