With autumn and winter fast approaching, I’m sure you’ve been wondering what boots are trending for 2021.
Now’s the perfect time to snap up a pair because there are tons of new arrivals on the market. You can get first dibs on the pieces to help you transition from summer’s fun, open-toe picks such as dad sandals and pillow sandals to autumn’s must-have boots.
There were a lot of exciting styles showcased on many designers’ runways for autumn-winter 2021, and I’m hyped to be channeling them in real life!
Of course, these designer options will be great to have but if you don’t have the money to invest in a pair, the high street will always be a reliable alternative.
To find out just what to look for, we sought the help of Agnes Cushnie, co-founder of footwear brand SANTE + WADE.
Here are 2021’s trending boot styles.
Heeled rubber wellingtons
Rain, mud, and monotony are no issue for these heeled rubber wellington boots that Chloe and Emilio Pucci shared as part of their autumn-winter showcases.
Biker style boots
These were all over the runways of Valentino, Celine, Balmain, and more. They’re bound to be all over the streets too.
These practical and utilitarian boots take on a more polished and embellished look this season. Watch out for ‘crafted hardware and metallic touches’, according to Agnes.
Lace up military style boots
Ganni, Loewe, Stella McCartney, and more are championing this boot style for autumn-winter 2021 — and it’s hard not to get behind this utilitarian look.
Chunky sole boots
Puddles? They won’t be a problem when you wear one of the trending boot styles for 2021: platform boots. Versace, Schiaparelli, and Vivienne Westwood are just a few of the designers to thank for the renaissance of this look.
Equestrian country style sleek knee-high boots
The ‘70s are calling and they want to put knee-high boots back on the fashion map. Fendi, Prada, and Longchamp have heeded this call with their equestrian-inspired footwear offerings.
