    AW20 boot trends

    You can always count on the likes of designers such as Prada, Chanel and Bottega Veneta to set the tone for the new season, and their autumn/winter 2020 offering was no exception. So which trends are worth investing in this season? Well, heeled boots are out, and flat boots are very much in, whether they’re of the Wellington or the tracksole variety.

    Keep scrolling for the biggest AW19 boot trends to invest in.

    Riding boots

    This is probably as dressy as the flat boot trend gets. Classic black leather cut in a minimal style and with no adornments is the name of the game. See Chanel, Khaite and Prada for inspiration.

    Hiking boots

    There is simply no escaping track soles this season. Whether they’re on a high boot or an ankle boot, these chunky soles are everywhere you look, whether it’s on the high street (Zara, Mango, Arket) or in designer collections (Bottega, Chloé, Alexander McQueen). Invest now or regret it later.

    Thigh high boots

    Proenza Schouler, Ferragamo, Victoria Beckham and Balenciaga were just some of the many designers bringing back the (very) high boot trend. They look perfect worn with a mini skirt or under a maxi dress, but there’s no way around it, you will need tall legs to pull this trend off, otherwise you’ll risk maximum discomfort.

    Wellington boots

    Another casual boot trend to take over our hearts, who knew Wellington boots could be so sexy? Polished and high at Oscar de la Renta, chunky and pink at Prada and with sky high heels at Versace, never have we coveted a wardrobe staple more. On the high street, look to & Other Stories and ARKET for some budget-friendly versions.

    Platform boots

    If you’re after a bit of height, don’t worry, heels haven’t gone completely out of style, they’re simply more of the platform variety. I love Casadei, Moschino and Chloé for this style.
