Knitwear fans rejoice! Autumn has finally arrived, which means chucking your battered flip flops into the back of your closest and encasing your toots in something a lot more cosy. Whether you’ve got big feet or curvy calves, heel hysteria or a flats fetish, we’ve got an autumn boots style for you.
Best for bigger feet
Having larger feet doesn’t mean missing out on the latest trends – quite the opposite. Snakeskin was all over the A/W catwalks this year, so have yourself a bit of high fashion glam with these grey snakeskin boots from Long Tall Sally (£70), available up to a size 12.
These Vivianna/steampunk style lace-up ankle boots from Hush Puppies (£80) are available up to size 11 and will add a bit of alt-kitsch to your look.
And of course you can’t go wrong with a staple pair of knee-high black flats. This pair from Tall Girls (£124) are sleek enough to dress up or down.
Best if you hate heels
Whether you find heels hellish to walk in or you’re already rocking enough height, flats fans have got loads of options this year. Give a nod to the season with these smart conker-coloured androgynous lace ups from Doc Martens, available on ASOS for £100.
Best if you don’t trust the weather
…and who does? One minute you’re skipping along in the crisp autumnal sunshine, the next you’re squelching along in wet shoes wiping your rain-sodden hair out of your eyes. Office’s classic patent Chelsea boot will protect you from puddles (£85)
While Dune’s faux fur-lined biker boots (£59) will keep your feet warm and dry whatever the weather.
For a little more wet-weather glam, go for these gorgeous burgundy red boots from New Look (£29.99). Tight stitching, padding and minimal upper openings will keep your feet warm and dry, and you needn’t worry about ruining the already-brushed leather in the rain.
Best if you want to feel fabulous
Some boots were made for walking – but not these. Killer heels, thigh-high finishes and intricate bling were the order of the day on a lot of couture runways this season, so if you’re planning on going from taxi to table, turn some heads with Alberto Zago’s skyscraper snakeskin block heels (£175)
Bit much? Make like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman with these understated but devilishly sexy over-the-knee suede boots from All Saints (£398).
You’ve got curvy calves
Ladies with shapely lower legs needn’t be condemned to ankle boots all autumn long. These black buckled boots from Long Tall Sally (£190) are a wardrobe staple.
While these heeled button and buckle boots from Simply Be (£55) have a touch of burlesque about them.
Or why not inject a pop of colour into your autumnal outfit with these amazing electric blue boots from Viva La Diva (£55)?
