Classic BootsSometimes, the best boot styles are the ones that have a timeless beauty to them—and classic boots, such as Chelsea boots or a pair of loafers, are perfect exactly for that reason.Pair either of these with an elegant trench coat or a classy blazer, (preferably tailored!) and your outfit will become the perfect image of sophistication.While loafers come in handy during summer, making them a great capsule footwear option, Chelsea boots are ideal for crispy autumn afternoons.
If you want to turn up your chic dial to the maximum, pointed-toe boots are a foolproof way to do exactly that.
While the pointed toe can really flatter the shape of your foot, a high heel can also elongate your legs and streamline any look, giving you that extra boost of confidence.
These types of boots tend to make excellent transitional pieces and are stylish options to get you through those days in the office! Put on a chunky cardigan and skinny jeans for a more casual look, helping to create that casual chic look that works so well.
Some of the best winter boots for women aren’t always ‘typically’ elegant—oftentimes, a bit of edgy flavour will help you and your wintry outfit stand out.
Chunky boots, for example, were all the rage during this year’s Paris Fashion Week. What makes chunky boots—including lace-up boots and square-toe boots, both of which are very much in style this season—so appealing is that the platform makes walking, (and just generally all those non-stop activities we cram into each day!)very comfortable, while also adding a bit of street sparkle.
What’s more, you can style chunky boots with almost anything, from layered dresses and mini skirts to wide-leg trousers and high-waisted jeans.
One of the most stylish boots for women this autumn/winter is the iconic sky-high boot. This style has always been unapologetically bold, so it’s no surprise that some of the most stylish celebrities have been working these on the red carpet.
But you don’t have to be a superstar to enjoy the sky-high boot. In fact, this year’s runways were brimming with boots that reached high above the knee, and there’s no doubt that anyone can make this style their own—all you have to do is pair your boots with an outfit that lets them shine.
For example, you can wear your boots in a super vibrant colour or a high shine metallic, and make it into your statement/elevated piece in your outfit. Add a mini dress and a blazer, and you’re good to go!
Finally, this list wouldn’t be complete without boots that prioritise comfort above all else.
The above-mentioned chunky boots fall in this category, as well as biker boots and casual mid-calf boots. Pair them with a warm oversized winter jacket, and you’re ready to enjoy the great outdoors!
One last thing before you go—remember that choosing the right pair of boots has a lot to do with your personal style. If edgy boots aren’t for you, why not buy a comfortable pair of Chelsea boots or high-heeled sky-high boots?
In the end, that’s what I love about boots the most—they offer so much variety that anyone can make the boot their own.
