Treat yourself (and your feet).

Since going outside for a walk is really the only option open to us all right now (other than sitting at home and staring at the wall, of course), one of the main things/only things on our shopping list is a great pair of winter boots. If you haven't already invested, there are still plenty of cold-weather options, whether you're partial to practical flat soles (hiking boots) or something slightly more, er, impractical (Cuban heels). Inspired by the influencers and editors who travelled (imagine!) to fashion month last year, we’ve found the four slickest styles of the season. Keep scrolling to shop our edit of chunky flats, knee-highs, cowboy boots and everyday ankle-grazers.

Stomper Boots

As temperatures turn truly icy, it's time to slip your feet into something more sturdy. Enter the stomper. It goes with everything from jeans to dresses and is sure to keep your feet toasty even in the chilliest of climes.

Cowboy Boots

Whether they're tall or short, suede or snake-print, cowboy boots aren't going anywhere. Simply swap the mini dresses you wore with yours all summer for barrel-leg jeans or invest in some statement tights.

Knee-High Boots

Knee-high boots are a smart addition to any winter wardrobe - and will serve you and then some when we can finally remerge. To really keep out the chill, we'll be wearing ours with knitted midi dresses for full coverage. Opt for a heeled version so you can take them easily from day to night (when going out at night is actually allowed).

Everyday Ankle Boots

You know the sort. The ones you wear to work, dinner, dates, brunch, when those were all a thing of course, and beyond. Timeless, effortless and they only improve with age.
