Rarely have I seen the military look done quite as dramatically as with these ‘Marychal’ ankle boots by Christian Louboutin. These have a real “solider-on-parade” feel to them, between the bright red upper and the gold trim, complete with button. All that’s missing is the matching jacket and busby hat, and you could go and stand outside Buckingham Palace and see how many tourists would take your photo.
OK, so they’re maybe not quite as literal as that. I’d probably advise steering clear of bright red jackets if you do decide to wear them, though!
