Prediction: These Are the Ankle Boots You'll See Everywhere Next Month

We’re always on the hunt for the next It ankle boot style. While there are several iterations that are always on trend, there’s one silhouette we think is set to go big over the next few months: the utility boot. Taking inspiration from the grunge era, this style is chunkier and likely to feature more hardware than your average—and will add the perfect amount of toughness to whatever you’re wearing. In fact, Bella Hadid has already been spotted wearing this style.

Below, we rounded up key autumn/winter 2016 runway moments featuring utility boots, along with street style inspiration of fashion girls already testing out the trend.
