How To Style Autumn/Winter Boots


Hey guys,

So apologies in advance for some of the ridiculously wind swept pics on todays post - the weather at the moment is very un-blogger friendly! 

Todays entry is all about how I'm styling my autumn/winter boots .. 


The Platform


So first up is the platform, which is the edgier (and braver!) choice for a winter boot. I received some gorgeous black ones from Simmi Shoes recently - I just love the wooden heel and how they look and feel as expensive as Jeffrey Campbells, but for a fraction of the price! Here are 2 ways I styled them:





Red Tartan Dress - Ark Clothing / Grey Crop Jumper - £14.99 Missguided /  Black Faux Leather Boots - £30 Simmi Shoes / Spike Necklace - £7.99 New Look / Black Fedora Hat - £25 Topshop / Black Belt - £8 Accessorize 

I think these boots are perfect for spicing up a simple outfit, and despite their edginess they do actually go really well with cute skirts or dresses. They also look great with trousers too as shown in the next pics - such a versatile pair of boots!  I got a size 6 as I'm usually a 5-6 and they fit like a dream - I would definitely recommend :) 









Gingham Joni Jeans - Topshop / Black High Neck Body Suit - £9.99 Missguided / Silver Statement Necklace - £7.99 Newlook / Button Camel Coat - £59 Miss Selfridge / Black Fedora Hat - Topshop / Black Faux Leather Boots - £30 Simmi Shoes


The Knee High

I actually only decided to invest in a pair of knee highs for the first time this year. I had bad memories of wearing them with denim hot pants as a teenager so they usually just make me cringe - but glad I decided to give them another go as they're great (especially when you're not trying to go for the teen cowgirl look!) 

Here's how I styled them for first, a simple day look and then, a flirty date night look :)



Green Coat - Miss Selfridge (old) / Blue Denim Joni Jeans - £36 Topshop / Green Printed Top - £30 Topshop /  Long heart necklace - Topshop / Black Knee High Boots - £34 New Look





Red Crop Top - £7.99 Select Fashion / Pink Floral Skirt - Pull And Bear (bought on a recent trip to Barcelona) / Black & Gold Bag - Accessorize / Black Knee High Boots - £34 New LookBlack Fedora Hat - £25 Topshop / Black Belt - £8 Accessorize 

The Heeled Boot

And last but not least are these cute and comfy brown heeled boots from New Look, which I have worn to death recently! Here's how I styled them with a pretty smock dress & if you check out some of my recent posts you'll find some more looks with them featured in too :) 






Black & Red Floral Smock Dress With Lace Trim - £19.99 New Look / Maroon Coat - £89 Miss Patina / Dark Red Fedora - £25 River Island / Brown Buckle Bag - £12 Accessorize / Brown Leather Belt - £22 Accessorize / Brown Heeled Chelsea Boots - £24.99 New Look


You may have noticed that all these boots have some type of heel - this is because I'm a massive heel fiend and actually never wear flats (mainly due to the fact that I'm pretty vertically challenged at just 5'3). But I recently found out another great excuse is that it's actually been proven wearing heels can prevent arthritis in the knees. Score!

Have a great week anyway, and see you soon :) 

Gabby xoxo

  9. In love with each one of these outfits - especially that tartan dress and the last dress! I'm such a boot fan and I've been considering going for a pair of knee highs this season so I think you've just twisted my arm!

  10. Beautiful looks! I especially like the first one with the black/brown boots and your Jonis (I got rid of mine thinking they'd not work this season - that and I'd worn them to within an inch of their lives!) xx
