What flat ankle boots are we going to be wearing this winter, especially with skirts and dresses?

Ooooh have been wondering this myself. What am I going to wear with dresses/skirts for work?

Apparently over the knee/thigh high boots, according to the guardian

Over the knee? Hope not. I'm so short I would look like I'm in panto
Someone linked to some mushroom boots the other week. They were lush

Thigh high or Chelsea boots with a slight western heel rather than the traditional sole seems to be the order of the day.

I've embraced the thigh high, but my Chelsea boots will remain firmly riding-boot-soled grin.

Another shortie so over the knee is definitely not happening here either! I do normally like in biker boots but not sure if they're right this year?

I've just bought some Chelsea boots from Joules.. Tan/brown. Quite comfy.

There's loads of suede around this year. I've just bought my first suede boots in years - wonder how long it'll take for me to trash them! grin

ShiroiKoibito Fri 16-Sep-16 20:31:37

I got them in the US in holiday, they're 'Steve Madden ' whoever he is

I'll be wearing my tan chelsea boots with jeans, and my little cara boots (look similar to Sam Edelman Petty) with skirts.

No panto boots here.

Steve Madden - wolf of Wall Street fame - big shoe designer in USA

Dick Whittington grin

Thigh high, sock boots with a chunky heel, flattish pixie type boots and biker boots seem to be en vogue.

Schteve Madnnn? wink

I can't say Steve Madden without pretending to be that sturdy lad playing snooker who throws his shoe about whilst off his tits on quaaludes.

I'm going for thigh-highs this year. I'm 5'8" with long, decent legs so hope to pull it off. The DCs will probably instruct me not to wear them if I look too ridiculous.

ShiroiKoibito Fri 16-Sep-16 22:25:44

I haven't seen it, but I only paid £19?? for them and I like them

might have to watch it now

i think leathwr amkle boots with a sock top. i saw some on river island and imagine they will look nice. pretty cool for a change. also alternative heels e.g. heels at an angle.

Love love Steve Madden shoes, I have some lovely sky high wedges that are really comfy ! Wolf of wall st is an awesome film

There seems to be a lot of this kind of thing about if what I saw in the shops today is anything to go by hmm - NOT my cup of tea, but quite <ahem> striking...

Over the knee is so not going to be happening here either.

Love those boots but they're way out of my price range and not going to work on a rather dumpy fifty something <sobs>
