What: A pair of Topshop’s Avant booties, which feature super-striking embellishments.
Why: We’re loving the decidedly non-restrained use of stones and beading on these ankle boots, making them a unique statement piece—a nice change from the gem-encrusted jewelry we’re seeing so much of lately. Extra points for the chic pointed toe and heel.
How: Headed to a soiree? Try teaming these booties with a pair of black velvet shorts and opaque tights, or pair them with a super-skinny pair of black trousers and a sleek blazer. Of course—much like with any good bling—there’s something exceptionally chic about pairing something extra-sparkly with a broken-in pair of blue jeans and a plain white T-shirt.
