As I write this, I'm wearing a pair of plain black ankle boots I've worn nearly every single day since fall arrived. While I won't be giving them up anytime soon, I should probably give them a rest lest my outfits start to feel dull and uncreative (which honestly might be happening already). So when I spotted Gigi Hadid's newest pair of ankle boots, suddenly a light went off in my mind. Her Wandler Bente Boots ($525) are two-toned with black and brown, which might be the update my winter outfits needed. The contrasting colors make them feel so fresh and eye-catching even though they technically still go with everything—genius, right?
Her ankle boots actually hit on an emerging shoe trend that we predict will only gain more traction in 2020. We've seen the contrasting style from buzzy designers such as Wandler, BY FAR, and Manu Atelier, but affordable retailers such as Topshop and Mango are also offering cool multi-tone options, a surefire sign that something larger is brewing.
