A plea: leave your ballet pumps at home

This is a state of emergency. Forget ballet pumps, forget they ever bloody existed. They’ve been stomping the streets for too long. Winter’s coming, remember? And when you’re wearing a big, most probably BLACK winter coat, statement footwear couldn’t be more important.

To avoid winding up looking like a widow, fading into the darkness of the winter afternoon, and getting run over by a car:

  • Choose a statement boot.
  • Don’t be shy with colour.
  • Choose something practical for you.
  • If you can’t walk in heels, don’t.

Here’s a few YUPPEE-certified ideas, listed according to price range. Just click the image to buy them online. Simple as!



Cheap #1 £40


These beauties like to stand out from the crowd. Don’t team them with any similar colours. TIP: Deep blue shades create the perfect contrast to red without the clown factor!



Nice at the front, naughty at the back. The chunky heel and stud detail makes for perfect everyday wear. Dress them up with the funkiest leggings or tights in your wardrobe for simple, effortless style.




Possibly the hardest boot to style properly… If you’re going there, you must do it right. Think: simplicity. Team with a baggy, belted black dress and opaque tights.




Rocker chic, stud and buckle heaven: wear these with high-waisted skinnies and an oversized cropped knit.



Get YOU in your classy little red boots! These would look gorge with a skater dress and studded black opaques.



It would be a crime to wear these during daylight hours – but there’s not many of those in the coming months! Wear with a classic cocktail dress.




Ruby red heaven: wear with a chunky jumper dress and tights.



Make the ULTIMATE statement in these high-flying platform boots. Wear with a flowing chiffon dress where the skirt is long at the back and short at the front. Stunning!


ASOS, £365

Cut out detail modernises these classic monochrome darlings. Wear with tights and a tea dress which cinches in at the waist – et voila!

Which of these statement boots are your favourite?
