One of the most versatile style of boots has to be the traditional riding boot. A style that transcends the space between practical and fashionable, this sort of boot is perfect for a whole lot of different looks and occasions. Worn over skinny jeans, these are great every day footwear that look great with shirts and blazers for the English heritage, Equestrian look. Worn under midi length winter skirts, you get a cool 1970s look reminiscent of Faye Dunaway and Cybil Shepherd in their fashion Icon heyday. These are the sort of boots that defy categorisation, and so become a wardrobe must-have.
