Buckle Up

I have completely worn out my pair of brown buckled leather ankle boots from last winter and since the sun appears to have gone for another year, I hate to admit it but I’m already hunting for new distinctive winter boots and cosy jumpers. Consequently I have fallen in love with the Autumn/Winter footwear collections from River Island and Urban Outfitters.


This coming season we will once again see endless pairs of army boots marching down our streets. Take a peek at Deena & Ozzy’s leather distressed army style ankle boots at Urban Outfitters, which are certain to toughen up any girly look. Details such as vertical zips at the front of the boots, studs and most importantly the wrap around laces make these boots a winter winner.


For those of you who prefer buckled boots River Island have created a small heeled, three buckle ankle boot with a fold over faux fur lining. Priced at a mere £60.00 this boot has already sold out in several sizes online so be prepared to invest in your stylish winter fashion pieces early. Similar to this style at River Island you will also find lace-up, buckled boots with a beautiful rib knitwear detail to keep the rain and snow out. For just £42.00 these boots will add a hint of vintage style to your wardrobe.


If you are seeking a sexier winter style perhaps try on Urban Outfitter’s suede wedge boots. They are right on trend and come in winter shades of a rustic red, olive green and black, featuring tonal lace-up fronts. River Island offer similar style with their dark beige wedge boots with small gold buckle details at the sides and a contrasting fabric panel running down the side of the boot.


Wellington boots have always been a practical addition to any wardrobe but with brands such as Hunter turning them into winter fashion essentials, I am on the look out for a new pair for the coming season. The Ilse Jacobssen lace-up wellies at Urban Outfitters will make you look like a style icon. These tall black wellies feature a lace-up front and have a super soft, fuzzy warm lining inside. If you’re after a more subtle Wellington boot then try Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania + Melissa stud ankle boots. At Urban Outfitters you will find this design this in navy, grey and mustard shades, each with three gold studs bearing the traditional orb logo.
