If there ever were an ankle boot that could elongate your legs, it wouldn’t surprise me if they were from Valentino. The design house is known for its exceptional craftsmanship and expert tailoring. While the black leather may be stark against fairer skin, the cut of this style is incredibly flattering for all women. I’ve always been a huge fan of boots in general, and these would definitely bring a lot of versatility to any wardrobe. You can wear them with any pair of pants or skirt, and instantly add a little edge to your outfit. The touch of hardware definitely doesn’t go unnoticed, adding some glamour to the overall look. You would think that as expensive as these are, they wouldn’t sell out as quickly as they have. But good news awaits, scroll down to see a fantastic look-a-like pair for about a quarter of the price!

Diavolina “Kane” Studded Platform Booties

UPDATE (08/27/2012): Just came across this phenomenal Valentino inspired studded bootie by Diavolina. Pssst, don’t tell anyone, but I think I actually prefer these!

Schutz “Eva” Studded Booties

These booties by Schutz are phenomenal. They look just like the high-end designer version above, but cost a lot less! Even this pair is an investment for most of us, but considering the quality and how often you’ll wear them, they are very much worth it. Hilary’s look above is very youthful and chic, but you can also try black leggings and a tunic or a high-waisted pencil skirt and sheer blouse to really make them noticeable. The other great thing about this pair is that you can wear them as a practical shoe as well, peaking out from under slim bootcut trousers for more professional occasions. Love the idea? They are also available in dark brown!
