If there's one essential purchase for A/W16, it has to be a pair of ankle boots.
Thundery downpours are a guarantee during the winter months and while a pair of wellies might be more practical, they won't win you quite so many sartorial bonus points.
The perfect blend of fashionable and practical, here are a few we have our eye on...
