On Trend: The Boot Edit

THE WESTERN BOOT

The spirit of the wild west meets modern design in this season’s offering of Western-inspired boots. Scandi label Ganni are leading the charge with their signature Texas boots in a range of covetable and wearable colour combinations, whilst Off-White and Philosophy are putting their directional stamp on the classic cowgirl silhouette. This ain’t our first rodeo.

THE LOGO BOOTS

Your favourite designers have found cleverly elevated ways to work their iconic logos onto ankle, knee-high and evening boots. A mark of sophistication and superior footwear pedigree, the trend for monogrammed pieces is perfect for those who like to make their fashion credentials known. Look to Balmain, Fendi, Gucci and Jimmy Choo for boots that speak volumes.

THE KNEE-HIGH STATEMENTS

Don’t be fooled – a knee-high boot might be a tried-and-tested classic, but this season’s collections are anything but ordinary. Mirrored leather, snakeskin and Pepto-Bismol-pink patent leather (courtesy of Prada) are a sure-fire way to turn heads this winter.

Enough to make you long for cold weather dressing.
