The Chelsea boot is named after an area that became fashionable with the ’60s mod scene in London. But while the rise of the boot’s popularity may be tied to a particular time and place, the timelessness of its design is undeniable. This close-fitting, ankle boot is easily pulled on — it usually features elasticated panels at the sides — and comes with a sturdy, comfortable sole. This season, Stuart Vevers has elevated the Chelsea boot with clever details that effortlessly allows them to segue from daywear to night. A platform heel elongates the chunky silhouette while the glossy, block-effect design has caramel brown leather, ribbed ankle gores for a touch of luxe. The icing on the cake? A chain detail that adds an element of toughness. Pair them with Coach’s darkly romantic, floral dresses or with close-fitting trousers — their versatility will surprise you.
