As Coco Chanel once said (according to Pinterest): a woman with good shoes is never ugly. Here at Melan Mag, we’re up for any excuse to go shopping and the approach of spring seems like a good time to assess our footwear situation for the coming months.
With the likelihood of April showers, it’s probably not quite time for sandals yet, but there’s no reason why you can’t get rid of your boring black and brown leather winter boots and replace them with something a little snazzier. Colourful ankle boots are a great compromise, so we’ve rounded up a short list of the loveliest new additions to your spring shoe collection.
Draw the centre of your outfit’s attention straight to your feet with these suede Alice boots from Vagabond. They’ll give a pure retro vibe to your outfit so keep up the theme with some kick flare jeans and a crisp white tee or blue skinnies with a matching bubblegum pink jumper. Tip: best save these for those non-rainy days!

Sock boots are all the rage at the moment and this Topshop pair is giving all the right vibes. The round chunky heel makes them super wearable whether it’s for desk or dancefloor. Sock boots are slimming on the legs but it’s all in the fit. If you get a good-quality fitting pair, it can make your calf look super slender and lengthens your legs.

Wear with a leather biker jacket and ripped jeans for a look that’s ditsy but with a dash of attitude.
