If the Boot Fits: a Winter Footwear Guide

Now that winter’s here, the last lingering autumnal shoots of optimistic colour probably need to be replaced with a wardrobe of warmer, thicker and more sensible winter-wear. Some may find this fashion transition a challenge. For others, however, winter is their best-dressed season, with plenty of opportunities to look chic and sophisticated in winter berets, leather gloves and tailored coats. Most important of all, it’s the season of the boot, the utterly stylish, fully functional emblem of fashion, without which the winter season would be incomplete.

Here’s a round-up of the hottest boot fashions this winter, whether you are an Audrey Hepburn aspirant or a Gwen Stefani biker chick, this season’s most popular styles of boot are versatile and there really is something for everyone.

Fur trim

For the ultimate in comfort and warmth, fur trim looks great and renders your boot winter certified. Tod’s and Rocket Dog boots are just two examples of brands that are embracing a bit of fluff this season.

Biker

Biker chic is big this season, especially when it comes to the boot. There is a huge range of black studded and buckled boots that can be made to look rock chic, shabby chic or just plain chic! Daisy Lowe wears them with a grey poncho and sheer black tights, a look that suits dog-walking surprisingly well.

Lace ups

This boot sees another season in style. Lace up wedges, booties, stilettos and open toes make a nifty twist on a classic boot. Lace up boots also come in a wide range of wacky styles, including those modelled by Lady Gaga herself, who wore Alexander McQueen lace ups to London Fashion week.

Riding

Perhaps the most prestigious boot of them all is the illustrious equestrian cob. In beautiful leather, the riding boot is an undeniable classic and a must-have in your wardrobe. Whether cowboy or dressage, this boot is an investment that oozes class and looks good with practically any outfit.
