FA S H I O N Bossy boots

FA S H I O N Bossy boots WINTER-PROOF YOUR TOOTSIES WITH SOME OF THE HOTTEST BOOTS STYLES AROUND. AMY NORBURY HUNTS DOWN THE BEST PICKS TO SEE YOU THROUGH TO SPRING AFTER the ubiquitous winter coat, boots are the biggest ticket purchase for any fashionista’s winter wardrobe. An essential piece of kit to combat the vagaries of the great British weather, boots are a seasonal must-have; the go-to footwear pick until the thermometer starts its springtime rise. In past seasons, boots have become a style statement in their own right; from sky high and thigh high to full-on embellishments, there have been some seriously showy offerings glamming up the catwalks and high streets alike. But this winter, things are a little more pared back. Throughout 2020, fashion trends have erred towards the practical - after all, we’ve been lounging through lockdown in our comfiest garb, and casualwear has replaced office chic for working from home and Zoom meetings galore. And that ethos has carried through to footwear; from gum boots at Christian Dior to hiking boots at Chloé, we’ve all fallen for footwear with function at its heart. When it comes to heels, it’s all about taking it low. Sturdy block heels have taken over, with not a stiletto in sight, and highly wearable ankle styles have become a firm favourite, with chunkier biker and combat boots offering the perfect balance of practicality and attitude. If you’re looking at knee high or above, opt for an equestrian vibe with either flats or a sturdy heel in classic black or tan. For easy everyday chic, a classic Chelsea boot hits the right note, while the ever-popular Western styles which have been top of the wishlist for a few seasons remain a solid pick. And while suede has been having its moment in the fashion spotlight recently, the tide has once again turned back towards the practicality and durability of leather. Forget dodging downpours in your new suede numbers; this season opt for boots that’ll have you splashing in puddles without a second thought. PASSO BOOTS, £140, DUNE LONDON.
