Autumn boot essentials


By Annabel Ditchfield, Second Year, History

The Croft Magazine // Autumn has arrived. Each day feels shorter than the last and the days are getting colder. Summer dresses and sandals are long gone with puffer coats and knitwear starting to creep back onto the high streets. It is time to bring out the autumn wardrobe and get ready for rainy season. The perfect place to start is with a good pair of boots. These will help you glide through the autumnal months with ease.

Chunky chelsea boots

As flaunted on the catwalk by Bottega Veneta and Valentino, chunky Chelsea boots are a must-have this season. They are both practical and sturdy and therefore perfect for stomping around in.

Lace-up boots

It is the season for lace-up boots. Effortlessly cool and comfortable, these boots are an essential purchase for anyone looking to turn heads this autumn. If you're heading out in the evening, try styling these with a dress or skirt. For a more laid back look, pair these boots with loose fitting jeans.

Rubber Welly Boots

A surprising trend showcased throughout autumn 2020 collections was the wellington boot. These tractor-soled and fleece-lined bubblegum pink Prada wellies were definitely my favourite. Practical and functional, these boots will keep your toes dry all autumn long.

Brightly coloured boots

If you are feeling bold this autumn, then why not invest in a pair of brightly coloured boots. They are a great way to jazz up your wardrobe. Match with the same colour handbag or contrast them with a neutral outfit.
