We love a good boot for winter, don't we? It keeps us cosy, and not to mention dry, when the monsoon decides to take over the country.
I reckon they are a great investment for the season to come and by sticking to a fairly plain colour, with not a lot of detail, you can wear them for several seasons. And look at it this way, we don't exactly get spring, just an extension of winter that's a few degrees warmer, so you can wear these well into March and April.
But finding the perfect pair can be a chore so I've found some great bargains to get your mitts on as a little treat for yourself.
Black is the failsafe colour, and the range of leather, fabric and suede is huge this season.
If you fancy a flat boot, then a fabric or leather works well as you can wear them over skinny jeans or tights to keep the look casual. When buying boots that are a bit tighter around the calves, it's always a good idea to wear a pair of jeans so you can test the stretch of the boot. I do find they can be tight on first try but bear in mind they will give.
River Island and Penneys have a very affordable range of daytime boots at the moment, so it's well worth a look.
If you want to try something new, then the over the knee boot is back again this season, and you don't have to pay a fortune for a good pair. River Island's suedette pair have been getting a lot of magazine coverage so I had to try them out for myself. The heel is a good height (so you aren't crippling your feet) and the fabric has a good stretch that is really holding its shape even when worn over trousers. They are a super bargain at €85, so a great designer dupe if you ask us!
So tell us, are knee high boots on your shopping list? Will you be making an investment? Or have you spotted a bargain we need to know about?
