So, make sure you keep an eye out when you’re shopping for your back-to-work wardrobe at Brent Cross Shopping Centre (don’t forget a new work bag!), because these new-in styles will be hitting the shop floor any day now.
LEOPARD PRINT ANKLE BOOTS
Leopard print has become a staple in many women’s wardrobes thanks to many brands heroing leopard print coats and blouses, mid dresses and bags, in their collections. Want to embrace your inner animal this autumn? Start with a pair of leopard print shoes. Choose ankle boots with an elegant pointed toe, if you can. Wear it with: An office outfit with extra rock ‘n’ roll! Keep the rest of your workwear black (black trouser suit and a black polo-neck) and let your leopard print heels do the talking.
Our pick: Premium suede leopard print pointed boots, £64.99, New Look
Not many offices are ready for cowboy boots, but western style boots are a different story. Subtly tap into the Wild West trend by choosing chic ankle boots with a sturdy low heel. Look for an almond toe and decorative stitching. Wear it with: Team with slim black trousers – ankle-skimming are best – and a statement blouse in a bold print. Or, if the weather’s kind, your work shirt dress and bare legs.
