Up until recently British designer J.W. Anderson hasn’t been on my fashion radar, but now that I’ve seen his latest womenswear collections, especially the bags and the shoes, I immediately subscribed to his various social media channels in order to never miss out on his future creations again. But let me give you an example of J.W. Anderson’s unique aesthetic first: look at these gorgeous asymmetrical pointy ruffle booties below! I love the boldness of the ruffles and the fact that the asymmetric arrangement forms a forward-facing arrow when both feet are standing next to each other. What I’m not loving though is the price: $840 in retail and even the sale price of $398 is still pretty hefty!

Another Project Ruffle Ankle Boots
Update (01/09/2018): Spotted these lovely ruffled ankle boots by Danish footwear brand Another Project which I think would be a great look for less alternative to the designer version above.

Office “Luscious” Ruffle Ankle Boots
If you’re searching for a similar look, check out these ruffle booties by Office. They are heeled and the ruffle arrangement is not quite as extreme and bold as on the J.W. Anderson original, but for £35 (sale price!) these are a pretty fab alternative to the pricey real deal! Also available in black suede.
