These boots are made for walking - here's the KA Edit's take on AW20 boots
As a long-term fan of a Chelsea boot and a pair of Dr Martens I instantly fell in love with the new chunky boots trend – the high-leg boot, with a slimmer line and platform heel.
If you’re like me and a little height goes a long way, this new style ticks that box as they help to elongate your legs. And anything that makes me look taller gets a huge thumbs up from me.
You’ve may have guessed by now that there’s a theme to my style… I have a love affair with the feminine/masculine mix.
So chunky boots quite literally go with my whole wardrobe!
I love how versatile these boots are. They are perfect to wear now and will will last all through winter – and until spring.
They are super comfy and this new style is really flattering with dresses too. Very Carrie Bradshaw – my all-time favourite fashion inspiration. Think swishing and clomping around Paris and you’re right there with me.
I love that we are in a fashion world where it’s totally acceptable to wear anything you want. It’s about feeling comfortable in your clothes. I have been a huge fan of wearing a pretty feminine dress with chunky boots for a long time.
Here are 5 outfit ideas for you and your chunky boots:
- Wear with a satin skirt and cosy knit for a grungy daytime look
- Try on with a pair of leather trousers and a roll neck jumper for the perfect autumn glam
- Throw on with your favourite jumper dress for effortless school run chic
- Dress up for dinner with a funky tulle skirt, leather jacket and sweatshirt
- And for ultimate comfort, wear with a maxi dress and oversized blazer
There’s so much choice out there right now, the high street is packed with plenty of styles and price points to suit everyone and every budget.
So – are you a fan?
