Since taking over the creative helm in 2010, designer Sarah Burton has infused Alexander McQueen’s tough-luxe aesthetic with a softer, feminine vibe. For her latest couture-like collection, the lauded Brit pulled back intricate embellished dresses and gowns with pearl-encrusted lace-up biker boots: a look coveted by editors, stylists and bloggers. Invest in the trend now with the label’s expertly crafted shoe collection. Spanning the spectrum from day-to-night, there’s a style for everyone and every occasion. Skull-embroidered slippers and smart leather brogues are best with boyfriend jeans and cropped trousers, while towering single-sole sandals and studded pumps will make an impression after dark. Work a look straight off the runway and invest in a pair of flat, buckled ankle boots. They’ll work year after year, putting a cool, urban slant on every outfit.
