Finer Things is a photo series with a playful approach to elusive, glamorous fashion items we’re fixated on right now.

If you’re the rare breed of shopper who thinks about coats and boots even when it’s 90 degrees outside, the pre-fall collections are here for you. For 2017, London-based label Osman teamed up with Jimmy Choo to produce a capsule of bold boots ranging from silver leather thigh-highs to these bright blue patent-leather ankle boots. With that slick, glossy finish, the daytime boot just got a little more fun. We like them with a white shirtdress or a cropped pant, regardless of the season.
