This time last year, I was having an almost unnatural amount of trouble with finding the perfect pair of boots for the winter season. This year, however, winter footwear is noticeably better, so whatever heel size, colour or length of boots you're after, I've found the perfect pair at a perfect price.
1. The Classic Ankle Boot H&M, Sale £14.99
The reason why this style of winter boot is 'classic' is because it's a versatile and, therefore, necessary warbrobe item - you literally cannot go wrong with a pair of these. They are ideal with something as casual as everyday skinny jeans or as classy as a pencil skirt - they can be as dressed up or down as you like. This particular pair comes in a suede material which makes them that little bit more interesting than leather which is so common, especially for footwear. Also, the low block heel assures all day comfort (tried and tested) and, as they're currently on sale at H&M, there is not a single reason why these would be a bad purchase.
Though they're very similar to the above boot, I call this the edgy boot because, in a subtle way, they will add a 'kick' to your entire winter outfit. The similar style means that they can also be worn with any bottoms or skirts and the two-tone detail as well as high block heel makes them the perfect choice of shoe for any occasion during the winter season as they will accommodate a casual as well as a dressy outfit. These are also available in red if grey is just not edgy enough for you.
3. The Knee-High Boot New Look, £34.99
I've fallen in love with these as soon as I saw them and I have now added them to my Christmas wishlist. Having previously bought knee-high boots from New Look, I can confidently say that their boots last an incredibly long time. I particularly like these due to the mix of suede and leather as well as the tassel and gold zip detail - it just makes them more interesting than a regular, plain black boot and a tassle is something you can never make a bad choice with. You will have to remember to bring your student ID for these ones but they are a really good investment as they will last for longer than just one winter, their design will always be stylish and for £34.99 it's still a bargain.
4. The Chelsea Boot Deichmann, £24.99 H&M, Sale £29.99
As you've probably already noticed, I love suede. But classic leather chelsea boots are a must-have in your winter wardrobe, too. This black leather chelsea boot with minimal stud detail from Deichmann is a pair I've been using to its absolute full potential as I've had them for two winters now and they're perfect to just slip on with a pair of ankle grazer skinny jeans on those rainy days.
Another suede selection from H&M is one I just couldn't skip. These are great if your feet just do not accept any kind of heels and they're everything I love about the first pair on this list just on a smaller heel, giving you more choice in comfort.
