Black, red, snakeskin, animal print ... ankle, long, over the knee, biker ... so many winter boot styles now available. We have so much choice. So we can indulge our love of the winter boot and if like me you can't resist another pair then take a look at some of these lovely styles.
I am noticing how nothing seems to be off limits with our style choices now, okay there are some on trend pieces but generally there is an 'anything goes' approach and with the continuing move away from fast fashion and more towards sustainable, shopping our wardrobes, nearly new and charity shop finds - we can really embrace a more individual style!
Winter boots should be an investment in our wardrobe. Buy a good classic, well made, well fitting, comfortable boot and it will come out year after year. I have an obsession with boots - I love them, they are so comfortable. I do buy a new pair (or two or three) every winter but I also have lots of pairs that I get out year after year.
In this blog post I am sharing a few new pairs I have plus a few recommendations of boots I am loving right now. I attended the Vionic Shoes AW19 launch event back in September (see my insta story highlights for a few ideas). This will be a photo heavy post - I hope you like what I have chosen!
First up the Alison from Vionic, chocolate brown (also available in black) lovely high heel but comfortable enough for every day walking and days out in London or aorund the shops.
Styled (top) with my Amazing Woman Jeans from Danielli Boutique and a cashmere mix scarf from Sweet Bea (other items all previous season). Sweet Bea are currently offering Fifty & Fab readers 20% off everything using the code FABFIFTY20 (expires at midnight on Monday 11th November 2019).
Then these black ankle boots are the Liv from Vionic, also available in lots of other colours. These are a lower heel, lower ankle and look stylish with ankle skimmer trousers or a skirt. Above I am wearing with pleather peg trousers from F&F/Next, faux fur gilet (old) and red knit from Marks & Spencer. Then with a pleated skirt from Warehouse, my Mint Velvet leather biker and my red bag from Aurora London.
And this pair are the Barlow II Black/Grey Leopard from Van Dal, when Van Dal got in touch to ask if I'd like to try one or two of their styles, I was surprised at just how many lovely stylish shoes and boots they have in their range. I love the subtle twist of adding the leopard to this boot without overkill, and they are such a comfortable sleek and attractive boot, a lovely every day style. And animal print is now considered a neutral and looks fabulous when pattern clashing so although I've kept it simple here with my Hope cashmere jumper and coated jeans I think they would look equally fab with a pattern.
And a few other styles to consider - the long knee high boot is back, this time with a heel and slouchy calf which suits me just fine as I have bigger calves so I got so fed up with them never fitting. Vionic have a gorgeous pair (Lolita knee high boot) if you are after an investment. Or I have a suede pair from Marks & Spencer, I have them in tan but also available in black. See below, styled here with the Floral Print Dress from Zara (current).
Hopefully a few ideas, let me know which ones you like best.
