A seasonally appropriate shoe can take even the humblest outfit and turn it into an instant success! The recent fashion weeks have given us the best street-style trends in boots that are the ultimate winter wardrobe essential. So, take notes from the list below and take your tailored trousers or skimpy skirts to the next level with these on-trend street-style boots!
Platform Chelsea Boots
These boots can carry you through fall and winter with their smart looks. You can go big with Bottega Veneta or pick a sleek pair from Loewe. While the vibrant grass green rubber sole is the attention-arresting feature of the Bottega Veneta number, the Loewe Chelsea boots in tan and black are an example of casual street-style smartness. Everlane The Rain Boot in black and white is another smart choice, while Ganni Chunky 50 leather Chelsea boots in black bring out a touch of fun with white blanket-stitch borders.
Building Block Boots
These boots feature a chunky and wedgy heel that perfectly balances sheer drama and comfortable stability. Khaite’s The Hooper Ankle Boot is a stand-alone piece with glossy finished wine-hued leather. If you want to instantly arrest onlookers’ attention, pick the Pernille Clear Wedge Bootie from Amina Muaddi. With its side zip closure, dramatically pointed toe, and especially the striking clear wedge heel. This lambskin-leather bootie will make you the talk of the town in no time!
These boots call for a moto-trend that’ll let your inner biker spirit free! Embellished with fastenings, these boots come in different stylistic variations. The genuine leather pair from Zara is pretty impressive with its leather straps, metal buckles, and decorative studs. Gucci’s combat version interlocking G boots are another standout style with their black tonal lace-up closure, inner zip closure, and adjustable pin-buckle strap. Isabel Marant chunky buckled leather ankle boots and Proenza Schouler lug sole buckle boots are great choices too.
Animal Print Boots
There’s no wrong time to go wild! Add a pair of leopard, zebra, python, or croc boots, and give your winter wardrobe a touch of bold character! These animal-printed leather pairs always give the maximum impact to any ensemble. If you prefer glossed-leather, go for the Attico Vitto croc-effect one. The Arielle Baron Serra ankle-length pairs come with a super-stylish python print that’ll elevate any outfit. The Miista Finola high boots with snake-embossed graphic pattern and Christian Louboutin’s leopard-print calf hair ankle boots with pencil-sharp stiletto heels are the perfect pair to cheer you up on a dreary winter day.
With a sheer Western vibe, these equestrian-style boots are perfect for all those cowboys and cowgirls out there! Even if you’re not a rider, you can just keep it straight and simple with these chic minimalist pairs. Pick the Michael Kors Braden two-tone leather riding boots in brown and black, or the Chloe Noua black-n-white knee-high with a fun whip-stitched design. Polo Ralph Lauren Vachetta in brown and Brunello Cucinelli mixed leather riding boots are the other two stylish options that’ll make you feel ready to saddle up this winter!
