While it’s always a shame to wave goodbye to summer, one of the best things about Autumn is that it’s boot season. Not only do boots offer lots of support for our feet and ankles, helping us feel fabulous from day through to night, but they also add a cool factor to most outfits. There’s just something about a boot that catches onlookers’ eyes and makes us feel that little bit more powerful when we look in the mirror.
Every boot collection needs at least one pair of ankle boots as they’re the most versatile type. Whether worn with a maxi dress, a skirt and tights or our favourite pair of jeans, they just work. They’re also a way to express ourselves as we can transform a classic outfit into a look with wow factor with the right pair of embellished or embroidered boots.
This season, there’s an impressive selection of statement ankle boots as well as sophisticated ones for formal occasions and cute casual boots that are so comfy you’ll never want to take them off. There’s a boot for all occasions and if you need some inspiration then have a look at these beautiful new season styles:

Bold Print Boots
This season, boots have become a canvas for works of art. Embroidery has become a big trend on clothing and that’s echoing down to boots as well. Embroidered and printed ankle boots can turn a day look into a night look but you could also wear them for day and feel gorgeous every time you notice your feet. They work with jeans, skirts and dresses – pretty much everything.
The Sole Diva Callie embroidered boots available in white or pink floral print on a black boot will turn heads everywhere you go. Or the Glamorous Brocade shoe boots have a super intricate design plus stunning lace up detail, they’re very lavish and decadent. Not sure you want to go all out? The Sole Diva Carla embroidered boots are an easy way to dip into the trend with a simple but pretty floral embellishment. Or the Daisy street velvet ankle boots may not be a print as such but the pastel pink colour is so elegant that they have the same effect.
We all need boots for busy days. We deserve to feel fashionable and fabulous even when we have lots of errands to run. Thanks to the new styles of flat ankle boots we can do just that this Autumn / Winter.

The new Lotus cassia ankle boots with a wedge heel can be dressed up or down. Wedges are ideal for helping us to walk tall and proud without compromising on comfort. A style that are a little bit different but still versatile are the Daisy street lace up ankle boots, which look just as incredible with skinny jeans as they do with mom jeans and you can wear them with dresses too. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find something they don’t go with. The same is true of the Violeta by Mango piercing ankle boots with their elegant piercing embellishment on the side. Although you could wear them to lots of different events and places, they’re definitely not boring!
If you want your boots to ooze attitude and turn heads then you need some boots with the bling factor. The Sole Diva Edita stud detail ankle boots have studs all around the sides and both the black and the grey styles are really eye-catching. However, it’s not just studs that shine this season, thanks to the Glamorous bee detail boots. These are a guaranteed conversation starter.
