NYC and L.A. girls have markedly different signature styles, but there’s one cold-weather shoe silhouette they’ve reached a consensus on—ankle boots. The reasons are twofold: They work with everything in your wardrobe, and no matter which coast you’re on, they’re weather-appropriate. On the West Coast where temps are still pushing 80°F, fashion girls wear them with miniskirts, while chilly East Coast weather has It girls styling them with leather skinnies and statement sweaters.
But while the style is timeless (as are the go-to outfit formulas we build around them), that doesn’t mean they don’t get an on-trend update every season. And right now, it’s all about block heels—they bring the versatility we’ve always loved about ankle boots and have the added benefit of being ultra-comfortable (truly a fashion dream come true). To help you find the pair that best suits your look, we’ve curated a selection of styles from Neiman Marcus you’ll want to add to your closet ASAP.
