The clocks have gone back, making it officially boot season. That said, there’s no better time to sock up and “boot up” in this season’s newest styles. To help you decide on which pair (or pairs) you’ll be wearing all winter, we’ve rounded up the boot trends that are really worth investing in this year. We’ve seen the return of many classics, but most of them have been given a 2018 update—such as knee-highs with a super-slouchy twist.
Similarly, hiking boots are back again from practical brands like Grenson and Sorel as well as unlikely brands like Miu Miu and Ganni. Wellington boots have also undergone an extremely fashionable makeover. Before we give too much away, let’s scroll through for the lowdown. Whether you’re after a pair of actual riding boots or some Christmas-party boots, we’ve got the very best for all budgets.
1. Modern Lace-Ups
These feel very Victorian and would look great with a midi skirt or dress.
2. Heavy-Duty Hiking Boots
The key to finding a great pair of hiking boots is to look ones for a cosy lining. So warm!
Phillip Lim often designs chic hiking boots every season, and this is its latest.
3. The 80's Party Boot
These are monochromatic dream boots, and we’re dying to finish the ’80s look off with a great ruched minidress.
Green satin and a gold stiletto. What more could a girl dream of?
4. Wild West
The two-toned Ganni Western boot is ranking very high on our shopping list.
5. Combat Style
Looking for everyday combat boots that will go with absolutely everything? You’ve found them.
ASOS has knocked a few others out of our edit with these. They look way more expensive than they actually are.
There’s something about white stitching on black suede that looks super classy.
Okay, these chunky pony-hair boots have just stolen our hearts.
6. Posh Wellies
This chic version of Wellington boots are not quite for the muddiest of weathers.
7. Super-Slouchy Knee Highs
These blush Gianvitos come in every colour imaginable. They can be worn scrunched up or down.
