Boots - My Wardrobe Essential

If you've followed my blog for a while you will know I am a huge fan of boots. Every single wardrobe should be home to at least one pair of boots. But if like me, you may have around 10 pairs. While there are different boots for all occasions, no wardrobe or shoe collection is complete without a good quality pair of boots. 
This week I've been wearing my Hunter wellies at Glastonbury festival which are strong and sturdy but not quite as quirky as these festival wellingtons... yes, functional footwear has even seen the traditional Wellington fitted with a built-in sound system. Crazy.

But the main reason I love boots is for comfort, style and their ability to go with almost any outfit.

Choosing your boots

Everyone should own at least one pair of boots but who's to say they can’t have several pairs in different styles for different occasions. After all, boots can vary from low-heeled ankle boots to leather knee high boots and that means choosing your style is half the fun. 

Ankle boots: My personal faves! This versatile style is on going in the fashion world from season to season I've been buying new ankle boots every year for the past 6 years. They go well with skirts, dresses, skinny jeans and denim cut offs. Whether you prefer flats or block heels, ankle boots are a great addition to your wardrobe. For summer I like to wear a fringed brown suede pair with a floaty dress. 

Biker boots: Around for what feels like forever this style is a hot favourite for 2013 and one set to continue into next year. The perfect way to toughen up a feminine look and I've always been a huge fan of the contrast between feminine and masculine. Go for Dr Martens, it may take you  a few years to break them in but it's so worth it!

Knee high boots: Knee highs may well have been banished to the back of the wardrobe a few years ago but now they’re set for a big comeback. Watch out this coming Autumn, it might be time for me to finally get my hands on a pair. I'd possibly go for flat brown pair over black in a matte leather.
