Invest in a nice pair of boots this season says Navni Kumar. They’re practical, comfortable and there’s one for every occasion.
Do you have a party to go to but it’s too cold to don your favourite pair of strappy stilettos? We tell you which boots wear really meant for walking, so that you always look chic and put your best foot forward.
The party boot looks best in black with a pencil heel. Don’t worry though, you can also go for more vibrant colours like electric blue or red. Team it with a short knit dress and ultra sheer stockings or pair them with skin tight leather pants and a funky poncho.

The beige patent leather and faux snakeskin boots are ideal for that high stakes meeting with the big boss. Team them up with a formal blazer or pant suit or try the Ronnie Grey suede black boots if you’re up for a challenge.
