While slippers may be your cosiest indoor shoe (and some are making the move to the outside world with sturdy soles), you need a pair of sturdy winter boots to slip on every time you head out the door – and these black boots are far more stylish, yet just as easy to wear.
The humble black boot‘s appeal and accessibility is something we’re all aware of. You can stick them on over tights with a midi dress for a day out with the family; you can pair them with just about any shape/length/colour of jeans you own. Or, you can wear them with jumpsuits… with mini skirts… with maxi skirts… do you see where we’re going with this?
Right now, the cowboy boot is the overtaking the chunky Chelsea boot as the street style star of the season (although not by much), yet both offer fresh new takes on styling your black boots through the colder months ahead. Chelsea boots work brilliantly with a pair of tracksuit bottoms and hoodies for dressed up brunch dates, while cowboy boots are an excellent combo with straight leg jeans and a faux leather blazer. They also look flames with a mini-dress when you’re going Out Out.
Black ladies boots go with quite literally everything and they remain as ubiquitous as ever, so there will be a black boot style down below to suit your own personal taste (as well as your practical needs).
Heading to the park or walking a dog? A pair of classic Dr Martens lace-ups would fare you well. If you’re city-based, Aeyde’s patent ankle boots or M&S’s Victorian-vibe calf boots with lace-up detailing and side zip would be a clever buy. And if you’re doing nothing more strenuous than perching on a bar stool, may we suggest Christian Louboutin’s high-heel Astribooty ankle boots? Always choose something that’s true to your own style to get the longest wear from it.
