If there’s one thing we know about A/W trends, it’s that sock boots are in. Literally everyone was wearing them over Copenhagen, Stockholm, New York and London.
And although I’m still not quite confident enough to wear fuchsia ones (yet!), I am falling for the idea of a slim fitting boot under denim or with dresses. And there was something about wearing with this dress that felt ‘right’ and more wintery than the usual dainty shoes I would’ve opted for.
The good (in fact, great) thing about these boots is their heel height. Comfortable with a walkable heel – I don’t mean to sound like a granny here but I just can’t really do stilettos anymore – no matter how much I love the shoes, it’s just a waste of money – so kitten or block heel it is.
I’ve become a bit bolder at wearing full High Street to Fashion Weeks recently – it’s hard when everyone is always wearing head to toe borrowed designer looks but I quite enjoy the look of surprise when I reveal my dress is from M&S or accessories from the High Street. I’m learning to ‘own it’ more and more and some of my favourite looks from streetstylers are those who have to confidence to mix it up.
I had quite a few questions about the bag, which I borrowed for this shoot – it’s a new take on the ‘Kensington’ bag which I already have in the red Chinois print – it’s a great shape and holds just about everything – it’s one of the few bags I carry and don’t need an extra bag – perfect for Fashion Week.
