Nothing can tie an outfit together quite like a boot can. Just think about how many options there are: pointy toe, suede, leather, ankle, over-the-knee, heeled, flat…there is a fabulous boot solution for practically every outfit. Truly, boots are the silent superhero you never knew you needed. I’m obsessed. Read on to shop my ultimate winter boot edit; it’s impossible for a person not to find their perfect pair!
When I think of boots, I think of all the different ways to wear them: cutoff jeans with a short chunky heeled boot, knee high suede over leather leggings, or maybe dress up a simple jumper dress with some over-the-knee winter warmers. One of my favourite date night looks is a stiletto-heel boot with black jeans. They really are such a great staple to have in your closet. When in doubt, go for a boot. You won’t regret it.
The great thing about boots is that there is a pair for absolutely everyone. For those of us who love to look a little statuesque for an evening out there are heels of all heights and for us taller girls, a flat Chelsea boot or knee-high block heels are winners. Businesswomen, casual dressers, Mums, teens and everyone in between will find a pair that works for your style. Gather a small collection and you’ll have the perfect pair for all seasons. In freezing London, I’m in suede boots most days.
My top tip for boot shopping? Don’t be afraid to step (literally!) out of your comfort zone – be bold and try something new!
