It’s the season for boots, ladies! And with hundreds of styles to choose from, we girls are spoilt for choice… and confused. So here’s my pick of boots for winter 2011-12, along with chic tips to wear them!
The classic blacks
You can’t pass a winter without a pair of black boots for daily wear. Black boots go with almost every colour I can imagine, and are ideal for day wear, office and evening!
Chic tip: Bored of black boots? Try tan or brown boots, or look for blacks with a hint of detailing like lace or texture, or a cool buckle.

Boots for parties
Boots now come in fun styles! Decorated with sequins, rhinestones and beads, boots can be as embellished as your party dress. Spiky-heeled boots are a great alternative to stilettos and peep-toed pumps.

Chic tip: Let’s be honest—boots can make you look like a tramp. If your look is too grungy or blingy, then you run a serious fashion risk with embellished boots. If your boots are quite catchy, tone down the jewellery and the sequins on your dress.
Tall or knee-high boots can be quite intimidating for many women, but don’t think you’re too short or too tall for something. If a pair of tall boots looks great on you, wear it with confidence. They are great to keep your legs warm in the cold weather!

Chic tip: Avoid wearing knee-high boots with shorts, though they do look great with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans.
