If you’re trying to perfect your capsule wardrobe, a great pair of boots will see you through just about any occasion. Ideal for transitioning from season to season and versatile enough to take outfits from the day to the night, finding the right pair is easy with guidance. We’ll take you through the most popular styles of women’s boots and how to make them work for you.



HOW TO STYLE CHELSEA BOOTS

The beauty of a great pair of Chelsea boots is that they can be styled with virtually any outfit. If you want to show off your footwear, why not tuck your trousers inside of the boots? This looks particularly stylish with loose-fitting trousers, as the tucked-in look creates a unique silhouette. When styling alongside denim jeans, consider a heeled pair of Chelsea boots and a minimalist blouse to achieve an effortlessly chic ensemble.

HOW TO STYLE KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

An easy way to style knee-high boots is to dress accordingly with the season that you’re currently in. During the spring, these boots look great with bare legs and a mini skirt in a light, playful fabric. Opt for nudes and beiges to keep things bright and easy to mix-and-match. When the temperature drops, knee-high boots are still your best friend. Team a leather pair with your favourite skinny jeans, a classic white shirt, and a chunky-knit jumper for a casual look to take you through the transitioning weather.

HOW TO STYLE BIKER BOOTS

We don’t want to state the obvious, but biker boots and leather are a match made in heaven. For the sustainable dressers out there, why not opt for vegan leather leggings or trousers? If you’re a die-hard dress fanatic, combat boots can still work for you. Finish off your maxi dress with statement jewellery – think chunky bracelets and rings – and a pair of even chunkier boots.

HOW TO STYLE RUBBER BOOTS

If you’ve chosen a knee-high pair of rubber boots, be bold and team with bare legs while the weather is still good. Don’t forget to accessorise with statement sunglasses and a clutch to match. When winter strikes, rubber boots will see you through the elements by keeping you warm and dry. For a look that is both cosy and catwalk-ready, pair your boots with an oversized wool coat, leather trousers and a roll-neck jumper.
