The Chic Way to Wear White Boots

Itching to invest in a pair of new season boots? We hear you, but before you make a beeline for a pair of trusty black ankle boots, may we point you in the direction of a key AW17 boot style you might not have even considered? We’re talking about the white boot, aka your fast-track to nailing new season cool.

Yes, we know white might not seem like the obvious colour choice for autumn boots, but trust us; they’re the ultimate transitional wardrobe power player. A white boot doesn’t feel as heavy as black, but offers the extra coverage needed, taking you seamlessly from September’s (often elusive) Indian summer to the cooler days ahead. The appeal of white boots lies in their versatility; basically, they go with everything. Here’s how to keep it chic on the styling front…

The white boot currently making waves with the style set is Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Sparky' – that’ll be down to the on-trend pearl, kitten heel and buckled straps. Take them from day to night by pairing with everything from band tees and denim to sleek tailoring – a style trick stolen from white boot fan Kendall Jenner – or show off the statement details with asymmetric hemlines and straight leg cropped jeans.

Top-to-toe tonal dressing is big news, so if you’re feeling brave – and don’t have to battle public transport - try a relaxed white suit with KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Raven' boots, or a white jumper and skirt combo to show off the statement two-tone cigarette heel. A white top with grey denim provides a subtler take on the look. If you know that there’s more chance of hell freezing over than you keeping white, well, white, beyond your 10am meeting, go for red. Kurt Geiger London 'Ride' boots sport a fierce silhouette that’s made to be worn with autumn’s hottest – and sassiest – hue. Work the look with a long sleeved red midi dress or cropped red denim and a co-ordinating knit.

When it comes to accessorising, switch up black bags – the contrast can be too harsh – for grey, red and even co-ordinating white. Oh, and try not to wear your white boots death – they look their best when they’re Daz-style blindingly white…
