Promotional feature with Timberland
Ankle boots are key for the new season – and we’ve found THE pair you have to have...
Dare we say it, but we’re actually quite looking forward to autumn. Romantic walks kicking leaves, cosy pubs and, of course, the new wardrobe to match.
Style icon and Scottish model Emma Louise Connolly is channelling just the looks we love… an androgynous biker jacket with frayed-hem jeans for off-duty weekends and sharper tailoring for the nine to five in the shape of bold red leather trousers and a chic navy blazer.
And to finish the look? Timberland’s new Venice Park Chelsea boot is Emma’s go-to this season. Truly versatile, they’re this season’s footwear staple and work equally well with smart midis, side-split palazzo pants and even floaty florals.
Teaming a relaxed blouson with her tailored leathers gives Emma’s work look a distinctly feminine edge. ‘I like to think I’m pretty relaxed with my wardrobe,’ she says. ‘I love to wear a statement piece with casual, loose fitting shapes. I am not one for a short dress and heels – I’m much more of a cool boot and leather jacket girl.’
A classic Chelsea style, it works with both elegant and laid-back looks. And in navy suede, it’s perfect for both outfits – the elasticated ankle insert picking up the biker shade. And Emma is not alone. Celebs like Alexa Chung, Emma Stone, Lupita Nyong’o and Gigi Hadid have all been rocking the ankle boot vibe season after season, so there’s never been a better time to join the #TimberlandCollective.
Whether you plump for blue or brown suede or traditional brown and black leather, these #VenicePark Chelsea boots are without doubt good lookers.
And coming from heritage bootmakers Timberland, they’re also ultra-durable and super comfortable, with cotton and wool linings for extra warmth. Plus we love that the brand uses recycled content in the rubber soles.
Treat yourself to these future classics and you’ll be well on the way to having your shoe-drobe sorted for Autumn/Winter.
