Boots are usually something that most people just wear because it is cold and rainy, and are very much an afterthought “I’ll just put on my boots, to wear with that outfit… It cold…” Not this year’s autumn/winter! AW16 is all about making a style statement with statement boots and making it the first thing you think about when putting together an outfit. From the must have ‘Over the Knee’ boots to the statement making ‘Patterned’ or ‘Metallic’ boots, it is ALL about the boots!
I recently bought myself two statement boots, one being the ‘Over the Knee’ boots – which I just love! They are a big look this season and have even influenced clothes designers, because although it maybe autumn/winter there are lots of short dresses and miniskirts around with the idea of you wearing them with the ‘over the knee’ boots. They are very comfortable and finish off the outfit nicely. They makes the simplest of outfits look as if you made an effort and go perfectly with over-sized jumpers, jumper dresses, shirt dresses and miniskirts.

There are many cheaper versions of these boots available on the high street, but for me these were the most comfortable. These boots are a classic and are always on trend every autumn/winter year after year, so it is definitely worth the investment.
My other recent purchase was a pair of Gray Snakeskin Printed ankle boots. These lovely boots are a perfect way to add a little drama and style to a plain colour block outfit.

Make these leather-look boots your go to boots. They are a great price for a season tend that may not be on trend next autumn/winter.
So why not show your personality though your boots and have fun with fashion, there is certainly a statement boot style suitable for everyone.
