What are the main types of winter boots style?
Lace-Up winter boots
Lace-up winter boots actually cover a broad range of boot types; from chunky Dr Martins to delicate brogue style boots. Lace details not only look pretty but are practical too - particularly if you have narrow feet and find it difficult to get a boot that fits correctly and doesn't slip. Top ties can prevent snow and moisture from getting into the boot.
Fur winter boots
This season, (faux) fur is everywhere - from coats and jackets to accessories and boots. Fur boots graced the catwalks with a number of designers, including Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Vanesssa Bruno.
Thigh high boots
Thigh high boots came back into fashion two years ago and have grown in popularity ever since. They're not only very sexy, but add a retro twist to any outfit. Thigh high boots featured on the runways of Burberry, Dior, Hèrmes and Tommy Hilfiger.
Heeled mountain and hiking boots
These winter boots combine the ruggedness and practicalities of hiking boots with the femininity of a heel. Many high street stores have followed in the footsteps of designers and celebrities, and there are numerous pretty boot styles available for reasonable prices.
Once again, ankle boots are huge this year. These boots are extremely versatile and can easily be dressed up or down.Top winter boots style on the high street
