If you’re already getting your winter wardrobe together (and we really hope you are!) you’ll definitely need a cute and comfy pair of boots. They’ve got to be practical – or at least, a little bit – warm, and above all, super styling! With the huge range of boots we’ve got here at Very, choosing just one pair was impossible, so here are some of our favourites for AW 2011.
First up, we adore the Love Bobo Chelsea Ankle Boots, in either a chocolately brown or stylish black. With their killer heel, they might not be the best boot for trudging round the countryside, but their soft feel and iconic shape are great for day wear, paired with super-tight jeans, or a casual night out. Another great pair of ankle boots is the Ugg Australia Lynnea Leather Clog Ankle Boots. With a chunky wooden heel and platform, these leather boots feature some great punkish studs and cosy sheepskin lining for extra comfortable (and extra cool) winter footwear.
For girls who are fans of flats, the South Charleston Flat Ankle Boots are a sophisticated choice. Minimal detailing and a classic equestrian style make them go-anywhere boots that look equally gorgeous with a floaty floral mini-dress or skinny jeans and t shirt. We particularly like them in brown – a great colour for AW 2011. Or what about the South Azelma Slouched Wedge Boots? In black, they look fab paired with denim. Their slight heel makes them a versatile but stylish pair of boots that are perfect for walks: with cushioned sole, they’re really comfortable and will even stand a whole day shopping! If you need a slightly wider fit, check out the So Fabulous Baltimore Wider EEE Fit Slouch Boots. Their slouched look is bang on for casual wear and they’ll slide on your feet really easily.
Longer length boots can look fantastic worn over leggings or under a knee-length skirt, and have the added bonus of tapping into the AW trend of sixties fashion. For cool, sleek sixties style, try the Clarks Karaoke Patent Knee High Boots in black patent leather. Their gold details including buckle and zip makes them stand out as a practical alternative in winter weather – plus they’re still cute enough for nights out. The Dune Mister Biker Boots provide an alternative to the super slick look with rustic tan leather and thick buckled details. For a smarter look in similar tones, and for a pair of boots in a classic design that will stand the test of time, the Hush Puppies Marshfield Knee High Boots are another Very favourite. Also available in black, the thick, chunky heel on these boots means they add a little extra height while still being easy to walk in, so you can be comfy and look great! But probably our favourite heeled boots are the So Fabulous Inez Wider EEE Fit High Leg Boots in soft grey. With a wider fit for easier wear, their platform sole and solid heel is supportive but still shapely – making your legs look fantastic, whatever the weather.
