25 pairs of new season boots that’ll complete your A/W 18 wardrobe

This season’s new boot trends are out on the streets (and the shelves) in full force – and while your go-to classic styles are still staples, A/W 18’s footwear offering is shaping up to to be a little fancier than most.

Firstly, there’s the return of Western chic – yes, cowgirl is officially cool again, according to the catwalks. Fendi, Dolce & Gabbanna and Emporio Armani have sent Wild West-inspired boots stomping down the runway in recent months, and now the style is taking over stores on every high street too.

When it comes to a more basic block colour, white is definitely the new black, and if you’re used to a chunky block heel? You might also want to consider investing in a kitten – whether you love it or loathe it from the first few times around, the short and sweet style is undeniably more popular than ever.

From towering heels to comfy flats, here’s the 5 key trends and how to weave them into your wardrobe. Move over Chelsea…
