Take your footwear game to a whole new level this season
One of the highlights of autumn is buying a new pair of boots. Their comfort factor and versatility means you can shop them almost guilt free because you’re bound to get endless amounts of wear from them. But for autumn / winter 18, you’ll want to forgo your trusty black boots in favour of red, white and even animal print. In regards to silhouette, this season it’s all about the cowboy boot.
The animal print boot
Black boots are great, but animal print boots are even better. Whether you opt for snakeskin, leopard print, or even zebra, the trend works at all heights and the simpler and more monochromatic the rest of your look, the more your boots will pop. Alternatively, try teaming your animal print boots with other patterns for a bold look.
The red boot
From scarlet to cherry, red boots are a fun pick-me-up when the rest of your autumn wardrobe is getting you down. Whether they’re over-the-knee, ankle length, slouchy or sleek, the crimson hue should be teamed with denim, tan, plaid, or even an all-red ensemble. Think of them as your new neutral.
The cowboy boot
It’s time to embrace your inner cowgirl because Western style is making a comeback. The great thing about the cowboy boot is it’s actually surprisingly flattering. Rather than cutting off the legs just below the knee, the curved shape shows more skin, elongating the legs, particularly when styled with a flowing midi dress or a denim skirt.
The white boot
While white boots might not seem like the most practical idea, the truth is when it comes to transitional dressing, white boots reign supreme. For an undeniably effortless and minimal look, try teaming them with jeans or invest in a pair of ankle-length, heeled sock boots and wear with bare legs and midi skirts.
