Wardrobe from the Ground Up!
As we all know, footwear can make or break an outfit. Ankle boots are an easy and comfortable way to update your wardrobe. Just ask Brenda who fell in love with the metallic bootie pictured here, which she modelled earlier in the season. She questioned how much she would actually wear them but she says, "These are my favourite purchase in a long time. I wear them with everything, every day!"
On the left, Brenda is modelling the Flexx ankle bootie, Sympli legging and mini skirt duo, and a tunic from SunKim. On the right, she added the mixed-media duster from ComfyUSA.
Stand Your Ground
Can't or don't want to wear high heels? A flat Chelsea boot, with it's now and wow appeal, will be your new best friend. "I cannot wear heels for more than an hour," states Elaine. "I've found this style of boot adaptable to any cut of pant and can add an edgy feel to dresses and skirts."

Look to Modern Shapes
Be open-minded to new or returning styles. Often a shape that is back on-trend, such as the wide leg pant, is recreated in a fresh way, in new fabrications and details. However, new trends should only be adopted if, and only if, they suit you.
