Winter boots are a staple for everyone's wardrobes, so we've hunted down the best styles out there right now to give you a helping hand in finding your perfect pair.
The new styles on this year’s catwalks were all about look-at-me colour, texture and statement shapes. From deep rich velvets at Dries Van Noten, to bold fluro colour blocking at Versace, and who can forget those spacey over-the-knee silver foil-like boots at Balenciaga?
Over-the-knee boots are another key style must-have this season. If the idea of a thigh-high boot scares you a little, we advise tempering down their sexy overtones by wearing your pair under an a-line midi skirt, or over skinny jeans with a long and casual cashmere jumper.
Covetable creations have also hit the high street now too. Whether you opt for an on-trend metallic pair from Next, or a pair of fashion-forward buckle boots from Mango, there’s no need to blow the budget this season. Chelsea boots have taken on a cooler, grungy guise and we can’t wait to get our hands on the high-gloss pair from & Other Stories.
If you are after an investment wear-forever boot, we’ve found a couple of dreamy styles from the supermodel off-duty favourite Oscar Tiye. Or, make like Kendall Jenner with the Portia OTK boots from her eponymous line with sister Kylie.
Topshop Mickey Cone Heel Boots are also a hero buy. With their directional street-style appeal they can be worn with jeans for a rock ‘n’ roll day look, or with a bohemian dress at the weekend.
There’s literally a style for everyone and every outfit, all you have to do is work out which boot is best for you this winter (though who says you can’t treat yourself to a few pairs?). To help you narrow down your options we’ve rounded up the 25 best winter boots to see you through the wind and rain and right into spring in style.
