We can all agree that simple black ankle boots are among the few endlessly versatile shoe styles. Much like a white T-shirt or an LBD, the sensible wardrobe staple is almost always in rotation—that is, until now. As of late, everyone from actress Kate Bosworth to model Karlie Kloss has worn the lace-up variety, complete with chunky heels and a rugged feel.
The latest It girl to take on the winter-inspired footwear trend during the first week of spring is none other than the trendsetting Bella Hadid. Leave it to the model to push the trend forward with her latest sleek outfit. We saw Rihanna rock the tough boots in a more laid-back manner, complete with distressed denim and a dramatic, floor-length shearling coat, but Bella's take is a bit more polished, although equally statement-making. The 20-year-old model balanced her bold burgundy jumpsuit with a structured leather jacket, matching dark shades, and black bag—but the patent Versus Versace F/W 17 lace-up boots that grounded the ensemble gave her look a slight edge and made a strong case for the unexpected spring trend.
