Every winter I make a point of going in search of new boots. I update my shoe collection every season and for the cooler months I always go for a simple ankle boot to freshen up my look. I think it’s the kind of style that’s easily adaptable to a multitude of different outfits and it really does take me through the season.
The great thing with ankle boots is that they come in so many different styles that it’s easy to find a pair that works with your own aesthetic. I always go for a simple, streamlined silhouette with a heel but this season I’ve found myself gravitating towards something a little edgier. I wore the above Maje boots to Fashion Week and not only were they best shoe decision from a comfort perspective they also helped ground my look. I was wearing quite a feminine outfit and by pairing it with flat boots it gave it a slightly tougher vibe and really took it in a different direction, which I love.
When it comes to choosing boots I think it’s key to start where every fashion purchase should start: your wardrobe. Do a scan of the shoes that you currently own and also your winter looks and see what’s lacking and what boot style can easily be paired with everything. Are you in need of a sophisticated heeled ankle boot? Do you need flat boots to wear with your casual ensembles? You’ll find that boots will take you through the next few months quite easily but it’s important to pinpoint the right style from the very beginning.
If you’re currently in the market for winter boots I’ve rounded up a few that will update your current wardrobe and make it on trend.
