We may have a bit of summer left, but autumn and its transitional weather is most definitely around the corner. And as we all know, there is one type of shoe that will keep your feet looking fresh (and feeling dry) throughout the season... Yes, we're talking boots, and now's your chance to say hello to our brand new Fantastic Five. From western styles to chunky platforms, transitioning into fall has never looked so good.
5 OF THE BEST NEW-SEASON BOOTS
By Ludovica Parisi, 21 August 2019
These white cowgirl-inspired beauties are the ideal choice if you're struggling to say goodbye to summer and you still want to highlight that Ibiza tan you've worked so hard for. Plus, the block heel will give you height without making your feet suffer all day long. Just pair it with denim dungarees for AM, or a cute satin dress for PM.
Combat boots in August may be a strange choice but until winter comes, it’s all about the styling. Tone down the heaviness with sleek short leggings for some extra underground vibes. Now play with the top – an off-the-shoulder blouse with balloon sleeves will give them a nice a feminine twist. Or, if you’re all about edginess, opt for a black denim shirt dress (fishnet bodysuit underneath optional).
Summer 2019's hot days may be on the way out, but its favourite snakeskin trend is still a thing – as confirmed by the latest Copenhagen Fashion Week. This multicolour pattern puts a fresh spin on the mid-heel boot, and the pointy toe makes it suitable for a more glam event. Couple it up it with an LBD for a match made in heaven.
Coming up with something extraordinary has never been an issue for Jeffrey Campbell, and these western boots ain’t here to play. The leather material is a sweet base, and if you add shiny finish, engraved details and metallic toe cap to the pile, then victory is assured. Water resistant and cool AF, you'll want to wear these all autumn long.
Weird flex but (more than) okay. The new House of Holland collab with Grenson is giving us strong highlander vibes. If you weren’t planning on going for a hike anytime soon don't worry, these boots are city-life champions. Make them standout with a maxi dress in a check print. Or for a more relaxed look, wear black skinny jeans and a cropped hoodie.
