September brings the last days of summer and the beginning of autumn, it's my favourite time of year. I like to think of the beginning of the new school term like a fresh start and of course a new autumn wardrobe.
One of my favourite pieces that I would class as a wardrobe essential are a pair of ankle boots. They always see me through from autumn right through to next spring, so I would always recommend investing. I usually have a few different pairs, from black Chelsea boots to animal print boots which are the easiest way to add a little interest to a back dress or a pair of jeans. Not only stylish and practical (no chilly toes or ankles here) but they are versatile; great with flouncy dress, cropped trousers, jeans and midi skirts. Opt for chunky styles to toughen up feminine florals or a pointed toe with cropped jeans and oversized knits. (Photography by Margarita Karenko.)
