Now that winter is setting in for the Southern Hemisphere it’s time to pull out the cosy woollens and snug boots.
Of all the boot styles on offer each season, the chic equestrian influenced boot has cemented itself as a closet staple and sartorial must-have.
Modelled off the boots worn by horse riders in dressage events, these knee-high, flat boots, often feature buckles at the ankle and/or thigh and have a slanted shaft.
Here are my five favourite styles available this winter:
1) Frye Melissa Zip Boots in black, AU$387.52
2) Splendid Tall Flat Boots Tulsa, AUD$303.10
3) Dune Totton, USD$264.00
There are many ways to style the chic equestrian boot into your wardrobe, but it works best with heavy winter looks – think lots of layers and chunky knits. The equestrian boot was not designed to be worn with bare legs, if you are going to do so pair with woollen knee-high socks.
How will you style your equestrian boot?
