Cold, rain, gales - they're easier to face in a killer pair of kickers. Be it sturdy ankle-skimmers or soft thigh-skimming suede, the high street has blessed us with an array of covetable boot options for autumn.
Colourful and structural heels, glossy patent coverings and pull-on sock styles are proving easy-to-wear trends, along with timeless animal-skin effect and metallic touches.
The '70s vibe that took over Fashion Week has filtered through in the shape of patchwork looks, a la Gianvito Rossi and Brian Atwood, and in fringing and tassels - a designer favourite over the past two seasons.
