Dear Ask the Stylist
I’m looking for some autumn / winter boots for everyday day wear – something stylish and not too boring. A wedge heel is what I like best. And going on last winter’s freezing paths, something with a bit of grip and water-proof would be exactly what I need!
Wedge boots are the practi-chicks answer to boot heaven. Perfect for pounding the pavement, wedge boots were seen on the runway at Celine and Rick Owens (both available at Brown Thomas) and give you height while still allowing you to walk.
This season, the wedge boot comes in ankle length, knee high and calf length – the latter is currently popular amongst the fash pack who wear them with socks!
The difference this year is in how you wear them. Yes, you can continue to wear them with dresses and leggings but this season it’s all about adding woolly or ribbed tights, and bare legged with socks until it gets cold enough.
For a stylish ankle wedge, try River Island style snakeskin boots (€114, pictured) which is lightweight with a plastic gripped sole. They would also look great worn with leather trousers or jeans. For evening, wear with your favorite little black dress and opaque tights.
For knee high boots, Aldo fits the bill perfectly with their Barcia style –pictured right- leather with a gripped sole and they come in black or brown. The wedge heel is 2.5” high so they’re not so high as to be impractical either.
If you’re looking for a calf length boot, then these chunky heeled shoes by Schuh will keep you dry all winter long.
And finally, my favourite pick for suede wedge boots – the Minky Linky from Office (€130), pictured below.
