Curating your colder weather wardrobe means considering a timeless autumn coat and cosy knitwear (we can’t get enough of the cardigan trend this year), but it also means carefully choosing our winter footwear.
We say ‘winter footwear’, but considering the UK’s climate, you’ll probably end up wearing them on those chilly spring days too. So, when you consider cost-per-wear, it’s certainly worth the investment. And September and October is the prime time to snap up a new pair of boots, as both high street stores and designers alike bring out the very best of their autumn/ winter collections.
This year, winter boots are chunkier than ever. In fact, searches for chunky boots have soared by 1550 per cent, according to LIKEtoKNOW.it. Other big boot trends taking stores by storm are square toes, rain boot-style rubber footwear and the croc-effect leather look is still here to stay.
