I love dresses but what the bloody hell do I wear on my feet in winter?
I know knee boots are dated... I like them with skinny jeans, but not keen with the dresses. Am working on getting some ankle boots, and I know everyone wears them with dresses too, but they wouldn't work with that Boden one.
I wear a lot of COS, an embarrassing amount in fact, I also rarely if ever wear trousers, although I am a fan of shorts. I wear mostly dresses and skirts. I do own a few pairs of knee high boots but they do feel very dated and haven't worn them for quite a few years, the pair of over-the knee boots I do own do still feel rather current so intend to wear them a lot this winter too. I also find ballet shoes and most flat pumps totally wrong in winter so tend to stick to brogues, Oxfords, ankle boots, both flat and high and Converse. I also have a few pairs of mid-heel mary-janes and a lovely pair of Marni-esque shoes too. I find the shoes I wear most often are my white Oxfords and a pair of two-tone Grenson brogues. I don't like shoe boots at all, wedges either apart from a lovely pair of black Ash wedge boots I got last year. It took me a long time to get used to the idea of flat lace-ups with dresses and skirts but now I have, I find most other footwear odd!
I find it's also useful to own a wide selection of tights, different thickness and weights. Colourwise the palette is fairly narrow - black, grey (quite a few shades) and the odd pattern. I don't really like bright colour tights but am thinking about buying some colbalt blue ones from COS.
Ive got brogues and wear with my dress what i got on my last shopping trip is a pair of Chelsea Boots-broque front style from Russel & Bromleys and they look lovelyw ith a dress or pair of skinnies. Also a nice pair of ankle boots or even long boots would look lovely.
