Lace Yourself

Last winter a friend of mine spent the most of a month gushing over a pair of shoe boots that she had spotted in New Look. I was sceptical of them being a favoured trend, and indeed I was right, for shoe boots didn't exactly take off. She never actually bought the pair in question, but this winter if her love of the shoe boot rekindles, I will be the first to tell her to run out and buy a pair.

Chunky Topshop lace-up shoe boot, £50

Shoe boot $34 Delia's
The shoe boot was quite a fixture on the a/w '07 runway. Seen at Burberry Prorsum, Diane Von Furstenburg and Versace, to name a few; the shoe boot is surely the preferred footwear of the season. According to the August edition of British Vogue 'Lace-ups (as they refer to them) can go two ways; cool and chunky or smart and sophisticated." That is certainly the beauty of the shoe boot. It is both very street, in a cool, edgy, fashion forward way and is at the same time elegant and feminine, as it can be worn with skirts or dresses, just as much as dark-washed skinnys.

Diane Von Furstenburg shoe boot screams 'Look at me', in loud and proud yellow
