New York Fashion Week’s runways showed tons of embellishments, accessories and accents, proving that contrary to the recent minimalist trend, this is definitely the year of ‘more is more’ in fashion. Here Hilary Duff flawlessly demonstrates how to balance both maximal and minimal style aesthetics by pairing Laurence Dacade ‘Pete’ Embroidered Velvet Ankle Boots ($990) with a navy sweater, dark skinny jeans and a warm brown bucket handbag. To top off the look Hilary wore trendy flat-lens sunglasses and a large gold ring on her middle finger. I live for these boots. The detailing, the materials, the silhouette — every aspect is amazing, except for the price tag. Read on to shop my finds including two comparable pairs of ankle boots to get Hilary’s look without breaking the bank.
