  1. Chelsea boots

The most versatile boots you can find. Pair it with a summer dress, skinny jeans or even a smart casual office attire. The standard colours the Chelsea boots come in are black, brown, and navy blue to make it easy to match most of your outfits. The elasticated sides of the boots and a tab on the back make it easy to slip on and slip off. Polish or spray a suede protector regularly, and these boots will last a lifetime.

It’s a great throw-on pair of boots for running errands or heading out for a quick bite. For a feminine and elegant look, match it with a midi slit dress for date night.

Fashionistas are taking opportunities to incorporate western boots into their lookbooks for a trendier look. In this season, the cowboy boots are a more polished version of the rugged style you would usually see in movies. Unlike the other boots mentioned, western boots are less versatile. They don’t quite go with the streetwear style, but a few fashion icons have been spotted pairing them up with more polished pieces, creating a chic, edgy look to wear to fashion week. You can play many designs with when it comes to cowboy boots, such as animal prints, classic designs, vibrant colours, and more. Do try to avoid designs with sequins and fringe.
