Last winter it was all about the Victoriana lace-up boots. This year, lace-up boots get a lot tougher and a bit rough and tumble. I’m convinced boots are made for stomping this year, not walking. Yet, even though they’re hard-wearing and ‘gritty’, I still want to set a contrast by pairing them with a silk crepe dress or a trailing tulle skirt. It’s like the girly girl who thinks she’s tougher because she put on a pair of combat boots but then gives the game away by wearing them with a pretty floral dress.
