SPOTLIGHT ON: BOOTS

If, like us, you find few things quite as satisfying as slipping into your most beloved pair of boots, then keep on reading. Undeniably of late, 'Boot Season' has emerged as a highly anticipated event in our sartorial calendars. Our Boutique Buyers know you can never own too many, so they have been busy stocking up on the year's most-searched-for styles. From maximal 80s ankle boots and Wild Western cowboy shapes to chunky-but-chic all weather hikers; let us talk you through the key buys that will see you through to spring.

Stay Classic

Stay Classic

Classic leather Chelsea boots need no introduction. A heritage style beloved for generations and a longtime favourite amongst influencers, these effortless ankle boots are certain to stay relevant from season to season. Still searching for that perfect pair? Step out in polished patent finishes for put-together appeal, or consider vintage brogue details in tan leather for something altogether more relaxed. Either style offers endless versatility: just add straight leg jeans and oversized knitwear for an easy everyday outfit.

Knee high boots will add instant refinement to any look. Leather riding boots that sit snug on the calf evoke elegant equestrian charm, while slouchy suede styles take a walk into 70s territory. The way to wear now? Embrace feminine midi dresses and boxy blazers for a layered look that plays with proportions. If you’re going thigh-high (which you should), consider A-line mini skirts or skinny jeans that let your boots do the talking.

Toughen Up

Toughen Up

Arguably the most practical shoes of the season, the hard-wearing hiker boot has climbed up the style agenda. British shoemakers Grenson do these particularly well, as seen in their instant sell-out Nanette boots. Robust rubber soles, durable leathers, and lace-up closures are ready for all weather scenarios. A plus, then, that these looks have garnered approval from every fashion blog around. Under the same umbrella we find toughened up biker boots, combat boots and grungy-chic Dr Martens. Counteract these chunky shapes with feminine silhouettes and unexpected textures: pleated satin midi skirts and cosy faux fur coats fit the bill.

Summer saw the cowboy boot comeback, and thankfully this western trend is staying put for autumn, winter and beyond. Let iconic Americana work its way into your ensemble via studs, embellishments, pointed toes and angular Cuban heels. To channel prairie girl chic, think high-necked maxi dresses, it-buy saddle bag and a luxe leather jacket.

Party On

Party On

As we know, our most-worn boots will take us seamlessly from day to night, but this season the ‘party boot’ deserves a genre of its own. Maximalist, 80s inspired looks are stepping onto the scene with their entrance-making abilities. Kat Maconie delivers high-octane metallics, sculptural shapes and directional design details that deserve to dance. Especially when worn with all of your sequinned fineries.

When it comes to heeled boots, there are two key styles to consider. Sleek kitten heels add sensual allure to your evening get-up, while retro-revival block heels bring added comfort and wearability. In any case, these statement looks call for playful experimentation via vibrant colourways, vivid prints and exotic snakeskin finishes. Not a fan of colour? Bright white boots will provide a similar outfit lift, as seen on the feet of the street style set.
