This "Dated" Boot Trend Is Back—Here's How to Make It Work for 2024

We’re officially in the depths of boot season (thankfully). From kitten-heel ankle boots and pointed-toe mid-calf iterations to shearling-lined UGGs, boots are the go-to slip-on footwear in the colder months. Guaranteed to add a certain edge to your outfit, whilst also keeping your feet warm, this season we’re talking about biker boots, once again. 

We’re welcoming them back into the spotlight and introducing the once dated boot (shoutout to those that remember them from 2010) to our autumn-winter wardrobe. Whilst influencers paired the footwear style with slip midi skirts, light linen and blazers back in the warmer months; now, biker boots are taking a grungier autumnal approach as they are styled amongst knitted layers, denim jeans and leather jackets. 

The hint is in the name, the style, which was once popular amongst motorcyclists, is known for its worn vintage look and utilitarian embellishments. After making a short-lived appearance in the 2010s, the resurgence of the trend all started with MiuMiu’s AW22 runway as they debuted their now-iconic ‘Sienna’ biker boot. Sporting an array of textures, studs, buckles and harness straps, the fashion house’s design oozes character and charm, so it’s no surprise that the fashion world followed suit.

If you’re anything like me, you've had your eye on some biker boots for a while now. From Miu Miu’s iconic style, of course, to Vagabond’s widely loved pair, keep scrolling to see the best options on the market.

Style Notes: Biker boots go hand-in-hand with leggings. Steal Marilyn's off-duty style with slinky base layers and a faded finish leather jacket, topped off with an abundance of accessories.
