Autumn and winter boots: what to buy this season
Colder days are the perfect excuse (should you need one) to buy some new footwear. From slouchy ankle boots to luxe thigh-highs, Mumsnetters have come up with a wish list of new season styles
If in doubt, you can't go wrong with these. New colours and subtle updates to the details mean you really *do* need a new pair - even if last year's are hiding in the back of the wardrobe.
"Chelsea boots with a slight western heel rather than the traditional
sole seems to be the order of the day."
"I've just bought some Chelsea boots from Joules in tan/brown. They're
"I love Steve Madden shoes. I have some that are really
Over the knee boots
Put your best foot forward in the boots of the moment - paired with bare legs and autumn dresses or jeans in deepest winter, they'll give your wardrobe an instant style update.
"I'm short, but I love them, especially over skinny jeans. And because they are suede my legs don't look too much like shiny sausages."
"I'm going for thigh-highs this year. I'm 5'8" with long, decent legs
so hope to pull it off."
"There's loads of suede boots around this year. I've just bought my first pair in years - wonder how long it'll take for me to trash them!"
If you love the relaxed, boho feel of slouchy boots these look great with everything. Win.
"I have these in rust - they are really comfy."
"I've got some suede boots from a couple of years ago that are kind of
slouchy round the top. They need re-heeling, but the consensus seems to be
that I can wear them without being laughed at."
"I'm hoping they will go well with black skinnies - I haven't worn them yet, but who cares? I love them."
Looking for comfort and a new style? Done. The sock boot is stretchy,
giving a snug fit with sleek lines.
"Pretty cool and I like the shape of the heel"
"Sock boots with a chunky heel seem to be en vogue."
"Ooooh I like those sock boots!"
Velvet block heel ankle boots
These luxe boots will be seen on many fashionable feet this season. Opt for striking colour to lift a dark outfit, or choose a more muted shade for day-to-day wear. Wear them with a classic shift dress and opaque tights for a slick 60s look.
"The colours drew me to them!"
"Ankle boots with skirts or dresses can look really nice."
"Seems to be a lot of big platform soles around. Also lots of buckles
and chunky heels."
