Today's So Shoe Me is the Ariel Flame Side Mesh Boot, $150, by and available at Topshop. I was just telling a friend how I can't stand zebra print. It is a complicated print to style and for me, personally, usually creates an outfit that is a bit tacky whether you're doned in high fashion separates or budget-friendly fast fashion. But then I was browsing on Topshop and found these nude mesh and black suede ankle boots in a zebra-style pattern that look amazingly chic and modern. The perfect boot to dress up skinny jeans or create a statement with on trend separates there are so many ways to make this boot your own signature piece. The 5" heel adds a super sexy finish to this bold but classic boot. Pair this versatile ankle boot with a bell-sleeved maxi dress in a burgundy jersey and slightly higher hem in the front for a bold and unexpected holiday look.
