Winter is most definitely here and it can only mean one thing – it is officially boot season!
Ankle, flat, heeled, fringed, suede, leather, Chelsea, knee high – boots are a must-have staple for any wardrobe this season. With so many boots to choose from, we have hunted down our favourite styles to help you transcend into a season of style with ease.
So pack away your peep-toes and swap these for a pair of stylish and chic boots.
The Ankle Boot
If you are going to invest in one pair of boots this season, it has to be the ankle boot.
This classic style has rapidly become a Universal modern wardrobe staple and can be worn with almost any outfit. Skinny jeans, tights, midi skirts, short dresses, high waisted shorts, leather – this boot can be paired with all of your favourite looks. Team them with a dress and a leather biker jacket, and you are ready for a night out in the City. Fancy something more casual? Team your ankle boots with your trusty ripped knee skinnies and an oversized tee and you’re ready to go.
Stuck on the colour? Choose a grey, nude or blush if you want to be on trend but don’t forget you can never go wrong with classic black!
If you haven’t already fallen in love with the ankle boot, go out and try on a range of styles until you find a pair which you love – and trust us, once you find the pair, you will wonder how you ever survived without them.
This boot is all about the fitting. Getting this look right is often harder than it seems – finding a pair of long boots which fit well in both length and width can be tricky. But when you do find the perfect pair, they will look incredible and better still, you will feel incredible.
Worn as a flat or with a heel, this boot has the power to make you feel fabulous. Want to dress up your casual outfit? Throw on a pair of flat long boots and you will look effortlessly stylish. Need a confidence boost? Put on your favourite skinnies, heeled long boots and you will feel fabulous.
Leather and suede are classic choices for this trend and ensure the look remains chic and classy.
The Over-The-Knee Boot
Dressed-up or dressed-down, this look screams style.
The over-the-knee boot is a dramatic style and a trend Lauren Jones touched on last month. Pair them with tights and a mini, or if you dare to bare, ditch the tights and opt for shorts and an oversized knit for a casual, chic look.
