Staff picks – Lucy loves Paxton
When it comes to making a new purchase, we often like to check what other people think and say about the product. How does it wear? How would we style it? Is it true to size? What occasions could you wear this to?
With this in mind, we thought who better to give their own recommendations than someone who knows our boots inside out: a member of our own team!
Lucy works as part of our Merchandising team, helping to manage stock levels for selling DuoBoots both in store and online. Here’s what she has to say about our Paxton ankle boots…
What made you choose Paxton?
I chose Paxton because of the beautiful quality leather and the versatility of the style. I love this ankle boot because of its elegant shape. It can be dressed up easily, but it still has a low heel which makes it comfortable for everyday wear. My favourite thing about them is the Western-style pull tab on the back and the luxury burgundy lining!
How would you describe your typical style?
I like my wardrobe to be full of good, casual basics that I can mix and match. I spend most of the autumn/winter in stripy knits, a classic biker jacket, jeans and of course great boots!
What’s your favourite outfit to wear with these boots and where would you wear them?
I find Paxton goes with just about everything. So far I’ve worn them to work and kept it simple with a pair of rolled-up dark wash skinny jeans and my favourite slouchy grey t-shirt. I’ve worn them at the weekends with a boho-inspired cotton dress. They also look great with shirt dresses (embracing the Western vibe!) although it’s been a bit warm for those lately!
Why should someone own these boots?
Paxton feel luxurious from the moment you open the box. I just know the leather will age beautifully, and I can wear that warm, rich tan colour right through from early autumn to late spring. They’re an investment, but definitely worth it.
