There’s something about a great pair of designer boots that gives you the instant glamour, stature and wow factor that no other accessory can. Pulling on a good quality pair of leather boots, immediately transforms an outfit from the ordinary to the spectacular in a matter of seconds. Not only do you look sexier, but the added height makes you feel sexier and there’s also something about the way knee length boots make you walk, that creates an even more sensual gait. It really is the best part of autumn and winter, that you can put on your favourite designer boots and strut around the supermarkets feeling like a supermodel! And although the high street has some great imitations, for a luxurious feel and durability, you can’t beat designer boots. Here are our favourites for autumn:
