Monthly Style Feature: The Boot Edit

When our ankles start getting chilly and we find ourselves rooting around for cosy socks, it’s time to pack those pumps away and focus on the winter boot. With so many styles and price points out there, it’s hard to choose which ones will serve you best in the wet and windy weather soon to come. It’s important to think about when you’ll be wearing them. Are they just for the school run? Do you need a smart pair for work? Should you get a fancy pair for going out? I’ve found the perfect boot-shaped solution for all the above... all you have to do is click to buy.
 

PAVEMENT POUNDERS

These boots are a busy mum’s uniform. When you’re running around with the kids in tow, carrying school bags, scooters, a pint of milk and pushing a pram, these boots are up to the challenge. Keeping you looking on trend, put together and a little bit cool, they can be thrown on with your skinny jeans or your trusty dress and tights combo and you’re good to go.

METALLICS AND SPARKLES 

Thanks to designers like Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs, metallic, sparkle and stars are THE boot trend for winter and perfect for party season. Yes, they make a massive statement but they are so much fun and will lift the simplest of outfits. Of course, there's nothing to stop you wearing them with raw hem jeans to do the weekly shop too! We’re firm believers in not just saving things for special occasions so shine like a sparkly diamond and rock those boots with pride!

MIDI HEELS 

The heel of the moment is the midi block heel. Much sturdier than a stiletto and certainly more comfortable, thankfully there are plenty of styles out there to choose from. If you’re not a heels kinda gal, then these in-between boots are the next best thing. They’d look great with trousers, dresses, skirts….. pretty much everything you own! A versatile all-rounder that requires next to no thinking.
