Tapestry and brocade are massive trends this season, with Dolce & Gabbana leading the way with their rich and opulent floral designs. We've seen the look interpreted in a number of ways by various designers and smaller labels, and one of our favourite to date is this 'Newbury' ankle boot by Rag & Bone which takes the luxurious look and turns it into a hip and youthful new look. The slightly bleached-out appearance of the floral pattern gives the boots a lived-in look that we really love, and the wooden heel takes it down a notch in formality.

The booties have their zip at the back for easy on-off action, and are artfully stitched with seams running along the toe, ankle and instep. These would look good worn with corduroy or other on-trend essential fabrics, and we can see them standing their ground underneath a semi-transparent dark skirt, too. Definitely an investment to consider for 2013.
