My Fall Obsession | 10 ways to wear white boots all year round

There are few shoes more versatile than a white boot, a style which can truly be worn all year round, whatever is happening with the weather. In spring and summer, they can be teamed with your floaty floral dresses, while they add a soft touch to denim ensembles in the autumn – and look great paired with workwear and even tights.

Don’t believe us? Here, we round up 10 of the chicest ways to make white boots work for your wardrobe, whether you love a Western-inspired style, ankle-length flats or a stiletto boot – and then see some of our favourite new styles available to shop right now.

Alternatively, wear with bare legs and mini skirts in the winter, but wrap up warm with layers
and a long coat.

A great way to pull your whole look together is to match another accessory to your white boots. In this case, Janelle Lloyd’s statement sunglasses really take her look to the next level.

Channel the Scandi style by adopting a pair of white cowboy boots into your arsenal – and team them with oversized, voluminous dresses all summer long.

Don’t be afraid to wear tights with white boots either. Choose a pair in a low denier and wear with elegant skirts and a jacket a la Camille Charriere.

White boots always look great paired with an all-white ensemble. Embrace the tonal look and add just a splash of colour.

The white hue can give a much softer finish to a pastel-coloured ensemble than a more traditional black or brown winter boot.
