We are officially Boot Obsessed! September is here, and so the hunt for the perfect pair of autumn boots begins. Whether you want ankle, knee-high or over-the-knee, high-fashion or wear-with-everything classic, with over 300 styles to choose from this season, Kurt Geiger is your ultimate boot destination. Oh, and to celebrate the launch of our Boot Obsessed campaign, if you buy a pair of boots in September you’ll get 20% off* your next purchase, meaning you can tick off another autumn boot trend or treat yourself to a chic bag to wear with them.
So, now that you’ve retired your summer sliders and can’t wait to get cosy in some new season boots, we’re bringing you the lowdown on autumn’s hottest boot trends. From the timeless – riding style knee-highs – to the on-trend – fierce white ankle boots – meet the seven key styles to add to your collection…
1. The White Boot
The ultimate transitional piece, white boots are perfect for making the switch from summer shoes to full-blown boots that bit more bearable. Kendall Jenner lives in KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Strut' pair, while Kurt Geiger London’s 'Ride' and Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Sparky' are fiercer takes on the trend, Ride with a sleek pointed toe and stiletto heel, Sparky with pearl adorned buckle straps and an on-trend kitten heel. Seriously versatile, white works with anything - pair with black dresses or tailoring for a sleek monochromatic look or style with red pieces for a trend-ticking colour combo.
2. The Over-The-Knee-Boot
Over-the-knees (or OTK’s for short) have segued from fashion statement to footwear staple over the past few seasons. In classic black or rich wine, Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Winner' is an elegantly sexy way to work the trend while KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Volt' is your off-duty go-to. Play with proportions (a trick loved by the street style set) and wear with a midi dress or skirt or subtly show a flash of thigh by pairing with an A-line mini. High necklines and chunky knits – especially with the addition of denim - will balance out the va va voom factor by day.
3. The Brogue Boot
We’re always looking for ways to reinvent the go-to black ankle boot, and Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Snail' and 'Slow' are a case in point. Decorated with luxe brogue detailing and featuring a chunky tread sole, wear them with this season’s floaty floral dresses to create a tough contrast or throw on with your staple denim and jumper for an effortless weekend look. A cosy knitted jumper dress is a no-brainer pairing too. Hard-wearing and hard-working, Snail will see you right through the season.
4. The Kitten Heel Boot
A lot can change in a season. Namely: our perception of the kitten heel. Now firmly back in the fashion fold thanks to a resurgence on the catwalks (from Prada to Dior), the humble two-inch heel is the fashion pack’s current go-to height. The coolest way to work the trend is with a kitten heel bootie (just ask Balenciaga) so make a beeline for Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Sparky' and 'Rokka' styles. Chic pearl appliques adds an extra special touch to Rokka, and they’ll go with everything. On that note, be savvy with how you style them - 2017’s kitten heels call for cropped trousers or turned up jeans or an asymmetric midi hem.
5. The Evening Boot
This season, boots go way beyond your daytime wardrobe. From the aforementioned kitten heels to sleek stilettos, it’s time to add the evening boot to your after dark shoe roster. Crafted from sumptuous velvet – another major autumn trend – and with a statement metallic gold heel, KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Reign' couldn’t be more luxe. Wear with an LBD for a cooler take on evening glamour, or try with a leather pencil skirt and statement knit or silky blouse.
6. The Riding Boot
A classic boot that’s always in style, equestrian details like a plush gold horse-bit elevate Carvela Kurt Geiger’s best-selling 'Waffle' knee-high boots. Whether you go for tan or black, both styles will work with all your wardrobe favourites, are smart enough for the office but comfortable enough for off-duty. Give the timeless style a fashion edge by wearing with a knitted skirt and leather jacket or autumnal floral dress, or keep things classic and pair with jeans and a chunky knit.
7. The Military Boot
A come-around-again trend, military influences were spotted on key AW17 catwalks including Burberry and Simone Rocha. Stand to attention in Carvela Kurt Geiger 'Soldier', a classic (and comfortable, thanks to that block heel) black ankle boot adorned with glossy gold buttons. Cropped tailored trousers are a must for showing off the military detail and work best with a fine knit and close fitting jacket, or try with a printed dress and military-inspired cover-up.
