We’re well into boot season so I thought it was time I put together the 2020 ultimate boot guide. You’re welcome. I got out all my favourite boots as SOON as the weather changed and I’ve been living in them ever since. Under dresses and skirts, over jeans or tights- I cannot get enough of all the styles that are out there.
When it comes to boot shopping there are a few key things to consider.
1. Heel height: it sounds obvious but there is nothing worse than a gorgeous pair of booties you can’t walk in. Waste of good fashion. So think about your day to day life and what you’ll be wearing them for and purchase accordingly. If they’re for everyday errands and running around after toddlers (anyone else?!) then a chunkier heel (think cowboy boot or block heel) would work well as would boots with no heel at all. Looking for a pair of boots for date nights and evenings out? Then by all means go for a sexy stiletto.
2. Colour and material: it’s so so easy to just buy black boots. I spent years buying one black Chelsea boot and one pair of knee high black suede boots but now I love a bit of colour and a range of styles. Dark red faux leather? Yes please. Light tan suede? Absolutely. If you’re always in jeans or leggings then a colourful ankle boot can be a really cheery addition to your outfit, whereas autumnal colours like dark red, tan and chocolate brown make for excellent longer boots. I’ve sorted my 2020 ultimate boot guide by style so hopefully you’ll find a pair (or several pairs) that will fit you perfectly. Lots of these are on sale too so don’t hand around too long…
