20 May Froggie’s Guide to the Boots to Buy This Winter
No matter what’s trending on the runways, there’s one type of footwear that’ll never go out of style during the chilly winter months – boots… A good pair of genuine leather winter boots will stick with you through flighty fads, ensuring you’ve always got that classic style. Here, we’ve rounded up our top boot picks of the season…
The Wedge Knee-High Boot
We’re all over this trend! Knee-high platform wedge boots are a must-have style this winter, so make sure you get your hands on a pair of these beauts. You’re bound to stand out in these stunners… lightweight with a side zip and a wedge heel, these are refined enough for work yet sultry enough for the weekend. Pair them with a mini slip dress for a head-turning night look, or leggings and a chunky turtleneck sweater for daytime wear. And these boots are so much easier to walk in than stiletto boots – a definite plus when the weather is wet!
The Ruched Suede and Leather Ankle Boot with Cleated Sole
The trend-driven cleated sole adds an edge to the essential ankle boot, making them the perfect pair of to wear with just about everything. The ruched suede also adds instant glam to any outfit!
The Perfect-Fit Riding Boot
An ankle boot just won’t cut it when the temperature plunges! On these cold days, there’s nothing more comforting than slipping on some cozy socks over your favourite skinny jeans and zipping up a pair of trusty, genuine leather knee-high riding boots. Comfortable and on-trend genuine leather riding boots are a winter must-have – the ultimate snug-meets-chic combo! Look out for neoprene backings that can stretch or cling to your calves, no matter what their size, to ensure the perfect fit! Adjustable buckles further ensure a snug fit. Riding boots lend a more polished look to casual jeans, or a down-to-earth feel to more delicate pieces, and, on chillier days, they make dresses and skirts wearable.
The Cowboy-Inspired Ankle Boot
As seen on Kendall Jenner, who totally rocks this look! Our cowboy boots are a little shorter and sleeker this winter, but still have the just the right amount of grit, adding a bit of Boho to a basic look.
The Classic Ankle Boot
Flat ankle boots are one of our favourite boot trends this season. Ankle boots like these are stylish, versatile, comfy, cosy, and wearable with just about everything – your feet will love them! Look out for wrap detail that emphasises your ankle, which will help make your legs look more slender, and styles with minimal hardware (buckles, etc.) to keep the look sleeker.
The Sporty Mid-Calf Padded Boot
The sporty-chic trend has carried over to winter, so up your winter style with some cute, sporty, padded patent Froggie boots, and look like you stepped right out of Coachella!
The High-Heeled, Over the Knee-High Boot
Few footwear trends are sexier than the high-heeled, knee-high boot, especially when they feature beautifully ruched genuine leather. For best fit, go for styles with elastic inserts at the back of the calf (great for those seeking wider fits), and pair with a dress or wear over skinny jeans or leggings.
The Block-Heeled Ankle Boot
The block heel’s a throwback to the nineteen seventies – this style works best with this season’s seventies-inspired fashion…high-waisted wide-leg pants, longer length A-line skirts and flowy Boho blouses. Not only the epitome of cool, but oh-so-comfy, too!
The Lace-Up Heeled Leather and Suede Ankle Boot
Put a sultry foot forward with a pair of lace-up heeled ankle boots! Over the past few seasons, this trend has been gaining traction —alluring and feminine, these boots make a playful statement, especially when worn in this season’s hottest colour trend, red! For easy on-off access, look out for that handy side zip.
The Wedge Ankle Boot
The wedge ankle boot is a fabulously versatile hybrid – easy to walk in, forgiving on height and leg length, feminine yet practical and can be worn any time of the day or night. Team these with virtually anything from leggings and jeans to shorts or funky skirts and dresses.
The High-Heeled Chelsea Boot
We’re head over heels with high-heeled Chelsea boots. We can credit nineteen sixties London ‘mod culture’ for this trend, says Patricia Black, creative director at the Albright Fashion Library. Now considered a classic, explains Black, this style is popular because it of its mod ‘groovy’ silhouette, in addition to being easy to wear. We’re head over heels with this style – rock them on a night out on the town, or look effortlessly Beatles-chic around the office
