They're always the hardest-working item in our wardrobes come autumn, so it's little wonder all we can think about right now is boots. However, with a plethora new styles out there—think animal print, sock and the It pair favoured by French women, to name a few—there are almost too many options to choose from. So instead, we're cancelling out the noise (just for a second) to focus our energy on a time-honoured classic: Chelsea boots.
Chelsea boots have morphed into a perennial fallback. Dating back to the Victorian era when, much like today, they were worn by men and women alike, they traditionally featured flat soles, rounded toes and sat just above the ankles. In recent years, however, the style has evolved into various iterations, from pointed-toe iterations and tall lengths to chunky tractor treads and wooden heels.
They're so instilled in our lives, in fact, that you probably already own a pair. Which is why we're not bombarding you with countless styles to shop now; instead, we've made it our mission to discover how to wear Chelsea boots in 2018. Be it with jeans, dresses, skirts or culottes, we're taking cues from these ladies who've helped put Chelsea boots back on the map.
