We may have spent the majority of our time in slippers or sandals and floaty dresses lately, but it's time to look to the amazing 'new in' sections and swap them for winter coats and autumn boots. Finding which pair of classic autumn ankle boots to pick can be a tricky task, so the woman&home fashion team have done the hard work for you and made an edit of the best pairs on the high street.
Whether you're a fan of chunky stomper boots that come with a five star comfort guarantee, or you want to try out the Western trend with a chunky heel or snake print style, we've found a pair for you. One of the best things about ankle boots is that they will go with anything in your wardrobe. Style with a sleek midi dress or silky slip skirt and shirt, add them to a casual jeans and tee combo or wear them with a midi dress. The humble ankle boot will go the distance in your wardrobe.
Want to know the best part? We've found the pairs that won't break the bank but still gain all the style points.
