Why you Should Invest in Long Boots this Winter

Ready to make an entrance? The long boot has long since been recognised as an autumn and winter wardrobe staple – practical, functional, and oh-so-chic. This season we are seeing this boot reimagined with our biggest range available yet, from the slim line riding boot to the slouched loose fit, there is ample choice to suit every mood. If you’re ready to take your everyday look, to the next level, consider adding a calf-to-knee high pair of boots to your shoe collection. You’ll be warm, protected against the elements, and receiving compliments left right and centre.

Unsure how to fashion these boots into an everyday outfit? Read on to review our top four suggested ways to take advantage of this classic staple.

The Long Boot, a Wardrobe Staple to Elevate your Everyday Style

We appreciate wanting to feel rugged up, protected against the elements, and fashionable all year round. If you’ve been sacrificing style for practicality during the cooler months, say no more. A pair of well-made, well-fitted long boots can transition your look from day to night while keeping you warm and looking your best.

Among our favourite ways to integrate calf-and-higher length boots into your wardrobe, we love:

  1. Workplace Appropriate: Need a comfortable pair of boots that can take you from the car, office, and back again? Whether you opt for slim fitting denim, a knee-length skirt, or wide legged trousers, knee high boots can keep you guarded against the elements and add a level of sophistication to an otherwise classic office-friendly look.
  2. After Hours Events: Heading out on the town? Nothing says elegance like a well-fitted pair of boots. If you’re up for it, consider swapping into a skirt to show off your favourite leather pair before leaving the office. Not interested in a outfit change? If you opt for a heeled boot, you’ll be walking tall throughout the night without having to pack extra clothes before leaving the house that day.
  3. Weekend Wear: Heading out for casual drinks? Whether you’re after a slim fitting pair of boots or want to prioritise comfort with a wide fitting long boot that accommodates wide calves, the Peter Sheppard collection has a range of styles to cater for all. The long boot is suitable for many weekend occasions, it’s will bring class to your Sunday brunching attrite, and easily transition for an after dark dinner.
  4. Autumn-to-Winter Transitions: Prepping for the colder weather? As soon as the autumn months hit, we start donning extra layers, tights, and added accessories like scarves and wraps to keep warm. If you haven’t considered a pair of long boots as an added layer of protection, now is the time! From the first cool days to the middle of winter, well-structured boots are sturdy enough to keep you warm and moving when the weather is less than ideal.

Comfortable and Chic Long Boots

If you’re ready to be armed against the elements and on the go during the colder months but not yet ready to sacrifice your everyday look, long boots are the way to go.

A classic wardrobe staple that can transition from work to fun and everything in between, the Peter Sheppard collection of men’s and women’s boots range in shape, style, and fit for every occasion.
