The mercury has officially dropped, winter is here, and boots have become the top priority on shopping lists (especially on the east coast!). Aside from the warmth factor, the shoes’ style and versatility make them a must-have essential in every woman’s wardrobe. Thankfully, we have a plethora of street-style inspiration from Fashion Week Australia and the international runway shows to help us decide which boot trends to invest in this season.
We’re going to go ahead and assume you already own a pair of classic wear-everywhere black ankle boots, and if you don't, look to these celebrities for ideas—there’s one style everyone clearly loves.
From knee-high and studded boots (yep, they’re back), to new kids on the block, like metallic and sock boots, here are the silhouettes and styles you’ll be seeing and wearing all season.
Keep scrolling to find out what you'll be wearing next.
Call it "the Vetements effect". The sock boot trend has gone straight from Demna Gvasalia's creative mind to our happy little feet. The slim-fitting, foot-sculpting boots will be ubiquitous this season as style-stars worldwide are already all over the trend.
It takes a brave woman to rock metallic boots. They are attention-grabbing to say the least, and generally require an equally bold outfit to match. Do you have the courage to try this trend?
Studded shoes are nothing new. Designers have been adding this detail to boots for years. So, what is this season’s take on the trend, we hear you ask? Embellishments that line the circumference of the shoe. We're definitely on board with this fresh twist on a classic look.
White boots strike the perfect balance of modern footwear with a vintage feel. Choose sleek, ankle-height styles with clean lines and minimal fuss, to help alleviate the risk of looking like you just stepped off the set of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
THE STATEMENT HEEL BOOTS
When Ellery released a pair of boots with extravagantly detailed heels, we knew there was no turning back. Heels are not simply functional anymore, no, this season they are statement-making, too.
A universally flattering and extremely versatile style, the knee-length boot is on high rotation all winter. Although they are a more classic trend than the other shoes on the list, knee-length boots are no doubt in equally high demand.
All we keep seeing right now is crimson-hued shoes. Red boots add an injection of character and liveliness to any outfit, which is all the more reason style-stars globally are championing the trend.
