Put your best foot forward with stunning boots
What are your favourite winter boots? These shoes have an essential role to play in your wardrobe, whether you like to stay in the city or go walking in the wilderness! In this category, you'll find everything from showstopping footwear for evening events to practical rubber-soled shoes to keep you dry and safe outdoors. When buying a pair, think about the height that you want to go for. Ankle booties look great under trousers, while knee-high alternatives go particularly well with skirts and dresses. If you want a heel, you'll find chunky styles easier to walk in than stilettos. Muscular or wide calves? Look for a pair with an elasticated section at the top, which will allow them to stretch to fit your leg.
Women's boots for everyday wear
If you're looking for something for your work wardrobe, nothing beats a pair of classic boots. Leather is the most classic, traditional material; suede can be eye-catching, but will need a bit more care, particularly if you live in a damp area. If you're going knee-high, it's best to choose a pair with a heel for the office. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking like you're on your way to go horse riding! For a relaxed, rock- or punk-inspired look, try lace-up boots for the weekend. Low styles are more practical; the higher you go, the more dramatic the look. Of course, if you really want to stand out from the crowd, spectacular overknees are the way to go!
Footwear to enjoy the great outdoors
When going outdoors in winter, you'll need a specialist boot! Rubber boots are a rainy day essential. The great thing about a pair of wellies is that you can go as colourful as you like. British racing green is the most traditional choice if you want a classic, royal family-inspired look. Don't fancy going to the queen for style inspiration? Try bright yellow, red or pink, or even go for an eye-catching, psychedelically swirled print! Anyone who's going to the mountains will need a solid pair of snow boots. Pay attention when buying yours. Their legs should fit you more tightly than other styles, as they'll need to keep the rain and snow out. A zip up the side will make it easy to get in and out, but a pair of laces will provide you with a snugger fit.
