You already know as well as Tina and I do along with any shoe snob worth her salt, that Miu Miu has full-fledged glitter fever. It’s only logical that Topshop (as famous for their highly…shall we say?…designer-inspired pieces as they are for surprising originals) would hop on the sparkle train and throw some glimmering confetti of their own around.
The pleasing twist? Topshop’s variation isn’t a vivacious party bootie or a strappy evening shoe. These are kick-around, beat up-and-go boots (guilt-free at this price!) that you can wear with your most worn-in of sweaters and distressed of jeans.
They are similar to Barneys Co-Op’s ankle boots, but if you ask me, way better. While Barneys made the body of the boot a too-perfect suede and sprinkled the glitter over the back, Topshop nailed it by offering a washed and worn leather. Best of all, that glitter heel makes for a scintillating little bombshell every time you take a step.
Distressed brown looks offbeat with bright gold – think rockabilly chic. But it’s the navy blue complimented by a confection of New Year’s Eve-worthy glitter that’s the one to watch. At TopShop for $160.
Pair with: Get in a good high-low mix while you highlight the seams of the boot. Unttld’s Shoreditch jacket is made of ultra-soft nubuck, with boldly minimal details: asymmetrical drape, geometric seams, and an open, billowing front. On Ssense for $1,750.
