Welcome to the battle of winter boots. Although they are a wardrobe staple, there are countless boot styles to choose from and your choice can make or break an outfit. So keep reading to see what styles are trending in Australian fashion; where you can get them and how to style them for cool-cosy looks.
#1 Lace-Up Military
Pair with high-waisted patterned cropped pants to create the illusion of longer legs and bring a vogue-esque edge. Finish the look with some faux fur or a cosy cropped marshmallow jacket from Toast Society, and your on-trend winter get up is sorted.
Style tip: A pastel-toned puffy jacket will balance the heavy boots while complimenting the cut and print of the pants in all their glory. Style muse Jami Alix knows what’s up, adding metallic earrings to bring on the glam.

#2 Sleek Sock
Brooke Testoni slays the sleek urban look of a sock boot, which is undoubtedly a favourite among Aussie fashion influencers. Not only are they super easy to style, they bring even the most basic looks back on the red carpet radar.
Style tip: Pick a pair which reflect your boldest outfit colour (e.g. red to coincide with bold red writing) to colour block, or step it up with a floral print to create vintage appeal.

#3 Glossy finish
Are boots usually a bit on the boring side for you? Perhaps you need to get glossed. Style icon Nardia Bartel doesn’t shy away from bold trends in Australian fashion, and this winter she assures us that every wardrobe needs a pair.
Style tip: Go for the basic-meets-fashion-fiend look and mix glossy ankle boot styles with your best graphic tee, a pair of ripped jeans and a gloss finish bag to tie everything together.

#4 Winter White
Bring back the 1960’s party girl vibe and dance the night away in a versatile pair of whites with a funky side stripe. Mix up your white winter boots with rugged baby blue denim cut-offs and a bright knit for stylish comfort.
Style tip: If you like soft and girly, go monochromatic white like style muse Fredrika to make your tan pop.
