While we love the idea of stylish outerwear in winters, it’s the new crop of footwear that excites us the most about the dipping temperatures. This season’s supercharged ankle boots are the perfect little outfit finishers. Perfect with a pair of jeans or a cocktail dress, cropped booties are the freshest way to work a hint of chic into your everyday wardrobe.

Suede, leather, embellished or buckled, this versatile baby has enough punchy detail to add interest to even the most bundled-up look. With winters just about knocking on our doors, what better time to search for a pair than this weekend? Here is our list of wearable favorites:

  1. Nine West Haywire Booties (Rs. 5320): Nothing adds drama to an outfit the way a leopard print does! If they happen to be a pair of lust worthy leopard print booties then an instant touch of glamour is a given. Team these with a sand coloured midi dress. Keep the accessories to a minimal - the boots are the real scene stealer.
  2. Mango Suede Ankle Boots (Rs.5990): Add some life to your gloomy winter days with these tan coloured ankle booties. Wear them with rolled up denim and an oversized sweater for a cool pulled together vibe.
