There's no denying that boots are the ultimate wintertime wardrobe workhorse--but there's a time, actually right about now, when they just start to feel a bit Groundhog Day-ish! Enter the lace-up ankle bootie--executed so stylishly, so refreshingly, so alluringly on Paris-based fashion editor Capucine Safyurtlu, above. They even look sexy--and yet still manage to be workhorse-y! Particularly these options from Sezane, J.Crew, 10 Crosby Derek Lam (40% off), Steve Madden, Madewell, Sam Edelman, Fratelli Rossetti, and Saint Laurent (40% off!).
