mulberry-harper.jpgNow we're looking forward to A/W 2011, thoughts turn away from flimsy sandals and on to more sensible rugged styles - in particular that perennial favourite of the ankle boot. It's the one style you can't go without next season, and now is the time to start thinking about where you'll find your next pair. Yes, I'm afraid it really is...

The classic black suede bootie is an absolute essential for A/W, and Mulberry have vamped up the look with a heavy silver toned chain and monogrammed tree-detail pendant for an extra designer accent.Like all Mulberry gear the boots are not exactly cheap, but with a few more months before ankle boot season truly kicks off, these will be well worth saving for!
