While out shopping with clients over the past few weeks, not surprisingly, winter boots have been high on the agenda. But what type of boot to get and to meet which wardrobe demands?

In general, I usually steer clients towards owning two pairs – one for casual days and another for more dressed up occasions. BUT with so much choice it can be tricky to choose what style to go for and difficult decisions have to be made!

Clarks have just brought out a Style Selector which helps you find the perfect boot to match your style personality. It’s a little bit basic, but quite fun and worth a go if you’re really stuck.

I am quite impressed with Clark’s offering this season, particularly in the boot department, which is why I ventured in there the other day to try on these 3/4 length boots which had caught my eye. I’ve never tried this style before, but I really liked the two tone leather while the low heel appealed for days spent chasing after the kids! I am definitely more of a classic style personality (with a twist) but dressy heels DON’T mix with rigourous family life! (My kids have run me ragged this half-term!)

Well, apart from the name of the boot (why???) I have to say, once on, they looked and felt really good. I tried them on with skinny jeans and had on a wool blazer. Very country chic!

I think this length of boot looks really great with dresses and skirts too and is actually very flattering. I’ve now pointed quite a few clients in their direction and they look particularly good on petite ladies as well as curvy ones!

You don’t have to go for a flat heel; here’s the Reta Boot by Dune which looked lovely on a lady I worked with recently, with a fit and flare dress as well as jeans and a skater skirt.

I’ve put together a little trio of outfits to show you the different ways 3/4 length boots can be styled.  The boots featured in these outfits are from Frye.
