I know that it is going to be an expensive year for me in terms of boots.
There are a huge range of boot trends available this season so finding the right one for the right outfit shouldn’t be too hard. From dainty stiletto shoe boots to knee high riding boots and wool-lined boots for the promised snowy weather the hardest thing will be deciding which pair to get.
And it is not just style to consider – colour too is important. Black goes with everything, a rich brown is a classic must have and nude and grey shades and very 2010/11.
Luckily it looks like it will be a long cold winter so that I can justify the number of pairs that I am intending to buy.
Here are the picks of the boots we will saving and splurging on this winter (the ones in the picture left are Reilly £250 from Pied A Terre):
I love the Victorian twist to this knee length pointed leather Singh boot in Tan (£139 from Moda in Pelle). With the button and brouge detail this is ideal to add a sassy but yet sophisticated twist to your winter wardrobe.
Annabelle by UGG Australia(£300 from Kurt Geiger) is a sleek, sophisticated and fashionable design. The mid-calf boot is made using rich leather with beautiful braided leather lacing detail at the back – a far cry from traditional UGGs which I believe should not be worn outside the home!
These Montana long boots in Cognac Loire (£140 from John Lewis) are a traditional riding boots that look great worn with skirts, skinny jeans or leggings.
For a 60s retro twist on the riding boot, I love these Hobbs Sissinghurst Castle black patent boots (£225 from John Lewis). The zip at the back is a quirky touch and they are delicate enough to be paired with a pencil skirt but won’t have you slipping over in the snow.
THE SHOE BOOT
Slinky by Carvela(£160 from Kurt Geiger) is a sumptuous suede ankle boot featuring platform, super high heel and lush faux fur collar. One of the biggest statement trends of the season, team with anything in your wardrobe to instantly add wow factor!
The suede Dune Banish shoe boot in grey (£110 from Shoe Studio) is perfect for looking fashionable in the office and can carry you into the evening as well.
Who doesn’t love Jimmy Choos and these Aero waxed suede shoe boots (£595 from Jimmy Choo), with their striking zip and buckle detailing, are perfect to update your wardrobe for ultimate glamour.
These tweed Faithful boots are from the late, great Alexander McQueen (£670 from Liberty). In
black leather and tweed, the zip-up ankle peep-toe boot with antique silver skull zipper and shearling trim is perfect for showing a bit of attitude.
Miss KG Babylon Stud (£120.from Kurt Geiger) is a suede shoe boot adorned with striking metal hardware on the upper and heel. We suggest keeping the rest of your outfit simple so all eyes are on these!
THE ANKLE BOOT
I love these grey tie side suede ankle boots (£79.99 from River Island). They look great with skinny jeans and are fabulous with a maxi dress and bomber jacket too.
These black zip ankle boots (£225 from Karen Millen) are sophistication meets rebel and therefore bang on trend. Perfect for a first date!
Pied A Terre Oakley wedge heel lace-up boots (£175 from John Lewis) are a great casual look that will also give you a little added height and allow you to stride with confidence, even in wet weather.
Who doesn’t love Christian Louboutin’s? These ‘Guerriere’ Boot (£945.00 from Browns) with their wrap-around buckled leather strap, square toe and signature red leather sole makes a style statement. Team them with a tank dress and chunky knits for an off-duty look with attitude.
If you like a soft slouched look these luxurious suede studded ankle boot (£199 from Karen Millen) are lovely, especially teamed with natural toned cashmeres and knits.
