Good style mixes high-ticket items with brilliant affordable gets. In this column, T’s fashion team finds the cheap and the chic.

What: Minnetoka fringed ankle boot
How much: $32.95 at Minnetonka
Who: Karla M. Martinez, T Magazine’s Women’s Market Director

This weekend while picking up a couple of extra T-shirts, tubes of travel-size toothpaste and other last-minute necessities for my trip to Milan and Paris for the fashion shows, it occurred to me that what I really need is a pair of good, comfortable flat shoes. I wasn’t so excited about the ballerina flats I found, and I wanted something that would look cute with dresses, skirts and pants. Last week, while leaving the Calvin Klein show, I met a showroom assistant on the street who was wearing a pair of Minnetonka fringed lace-up ankle boots. (She had folded over the tops and done some fancy styling with the laces.) Perfect! This season there are similar (dare I say Minnetonka-inspired) shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti and Jimmy Choo, but naturally these come with designer price tags. The Minnetonkas are only $32.95, so I might even get them in both black and brown.
