Autumn is here, and for many, that means swapping out a wardrobe of summer dresses for a wardrobe of cosy knits and a footwear collection of strappy sandals for a few pairs of versatile, closed-toe shoes.
While Carrie Bradshaw may disagree, for me autumn is all about practicality. Given the weather in the UK can be unpredictable, often we rely on our footwear to work double-time, simultaneously completing our outfits in style, while also ensuring we remain warm and dry. And that is exactly where boots come in. From chunky-sole flat boots and lace-up hiker options to dressier heeled boots or stylish knee-highs, boots are the full-proof footwear style that we all depend on throughout autumn and beyond.
Given the array of diverse styles that exist, boots are extremely versatile, and we can almost guarantee there is an option for most autumnal occasions. Aside from boots, this season we'll also be turning to modern loafers to complete our looks. Whether finished with chain embellishments or updated with track-sole heels, reimagined loafers are proving popular across both the high-street and designer brands.
