If you want your friends to have some incredible shoe envy, grab yourself some Victorian style boots as they are one of this season’s key trends in the footwear department. Choose from a wedge or cone heel, with lace ups and textured material. Try velvet, lace, leather and suede. Anything with a vintage style and intricate detail will be a hit.
Look out for items with eye-let hooks and fleece lining. Even try some new colours, like dark green or burgundy. Team them with skinny jeans or with a dress to harden the look. Wear with anything from the British Heritage trend to rock the style to the max!
Here are my top 5 Victorian boots:
We here at Offersboutique love anything by Kurt Geiger, so when these popped up, I had to add them into this article! These shoe boots are exactly what you should be looking for to fit into the Victorian boot trend. They are made with navy leather and have sophisticated brogue style detail to them. They have a lace-up front and 3 ½ inch thin heel. These would work best with a vintage dress and simple accessories. Nothing too much as you don’t want to take the focus away from these fantastic boots!
These Victorian style boots are stunning! They come in tan and black, but I’d recommend going for the tan, as you can wear them everyday. They have beautiful stitch detailing, eye-let hooks and a 3 ½ inch heel. They’d be great to wear with skinny jeans, legging or tights to finish off a feminine look. Add a matching bag and silk scarf and you’ll look fresh and up-to-date. They are very reasonably priced at £29 and come in sizes 3-9.
These Victorian boots have just come back into stock again, so grab them fast before they’re all gone!
Now for those of you looking for something a little different, Boohoo.com have come up with a unique vintage Victorian style boot. Lace is a big trend this season, but combined differently than spring/summer with accessories, small detailing and gothic shades. These Victorian lace boots are definitely one way of making a statement. Wear these with a plaid or tartan dress to mix together this seasons big fabrics. Finish with a chunky knit and you’re ready to go!
For those of you wanting something a little more understated, Boohoo.com also sell a brown, tan and black plain version of this boot called the ‘Dalia’.
Hush Puppy have brought out a few Victorian boots this season, but their Vanessa boots are by far my favourite. They are made with black leather and have delicate stitched detailing all over. These Victorian boots have an almond toe and small, shapely heel. They also have an ankle cuff that can be worn up or down. They’re £69.99 and available at Schuh.co.uk.
These boots make me want to throw on a tight corset, full layered skirt and put some feathers in my hair. For those of you not wanting to stand out so much (!) then wear them with a pencil skirt or tailored dress. Great for the office or an evening treat. They are the perfect combination or practical meets lovely!
For a true Victorian feel, indulge in some dark colours for your footwear choice. These gorgeous boots by Lizzie Agra at Clarks are made from aubergine suede. They have punched-hole detailing, an easy access side zip and leather trims. They are an investment at £84.99, but well worth it, especially for those of you who struggle to find fashionable boots that fit. Clarks are fantastic at providing stylish footwear in half sizes and different widths, so definitely take a peak at their website if you find yourself in this situation.
Wear these beautiful deep purple Victorian boots with black or navy. Clash the soft suede with a hard leather skirt and gold accessories.
Take your pick and enjoy wearing these boots to complete your autumn/winter 2010 wardrobe.
