From the classic ankle-grazers to the statement-making thigh-highs, boots are nothing short of a winter wardrobe necessity. Whether you prefer a high-shine gloss or textured tactile print, this season’s frontrunners are bound to have you stylishly stomping from one season to the next.
Similar to the classic winter trench coat, boots are considered one of those investment pieces that do often require a small splurge in funds – a very necessary splurge, if you ask me. As dopamine dressing continues to remain one of 2022’s most influential trends, this year’s boots are anything but basic. From patent pastels to bold and bright primary hues, this season’s footwear is sprucing shades far beyond the monotone palette of black, brown, and beige.
Thanks to a rather cool drop in temperature, we are also seeing a rise in the more cosy and comfortable everyday boot. As the robust gumboot and snug fabric-lined styles regain popularity, it’s safe to presume this season is prioritising both comfort and warmth. Whether you’re headed to a boot-scooting festival or lavish evening dinner, 2022’s newest offerings of styles and shades ensures you have an appropriate pair for every and any occasion.
Although each year does welcome the emergence of new designs, graphics, and colourways, 2022 is embracing the new and improved cult classics. From the flat and comfortable combat to the chic and slouched jessamy, this season, our beloved favourites are aiming to add a touch of personality, intrigue, and individuality to our winter wardrobe. Thanks to their popularity, stylish aesthetic, and comfort, these cult classics continue to reappear each and every year – and so they should.
With a focus on quality rather than quantity, investing in boots made from durable, long-lasting materials ensures your footwear has the power to withstand all winter weather conditions. With longevity in mind, we suggest opting for sturdy, reliable materials such as leather.
Perfectly paired with anything from a short and chic mini dress to floor-grazing flare pants, the style of boot you select should not only reflect what’s on trend, but what you personally feel comfortable and confident wearing. It is important to remember that if a style of boot does not work for you, don’t force it. Certain styles will not work nor look great on everyone. Rather than getting disheartened about what styles don’t work for you, embrace those that do.
Different boots will accentuate different areas of the leg, so be sure to opt for designs which are as suitable as they are stylish. No matter what pair of boots you choose to invest in this season, make sure you can comfortably walk miles – if not marathons – in your newbies.
Great boots will add a level of ease and versatility to your winter wardrobe, so purchase those you like, avoid styles you don’t, and by all means, allow yourself to splurge a little extra on your favourites.
After all, these boots were made for walking.
