You may not see it quite yet but these will give the smart, sleek style a touch of Lara Croft and nobody messes with that iconic video game character.

9. Bourne Elle Ankle Boot, £180 from
Dazzle 'em this winter in an abundance of jewel colours. Whether you want to drap your entire body in a palette of rich reds, emerald greens and citrine yellows or add a few touches like these gorgeous aubergine-coloured boots by Bourne. The soft suede and pretty bow detail of these stiletto boots will add an exuberant elegance to your autumn/winter style.

10. Little Marcel Yamoto, from £135 from
Packed with charm and character, these Little Marcel Yamoto alpine boots are a must for fashionistas.
