Both stylish and functional, flat moto boots are definitely an Autumn and winter staple since they can be dressed up or down and are great for throwing on for a trip to the shops or a couple of drinks with friends.

#3. Knee-High Boots:

Heeled or stiletto knee-high boots look great for nights out and other special occasions; for a sleek and stylish look, opt for ‘sock’ styles to show off your shapely legs too.

No Autumn wardrobe would be complete without a sturdy pair of rain boots. Whether you’re planning some countryside walks with your dog or simply want to keep your feet warm and dry around town, a pair of rubber boots will certainly do the trick.
