And our top tip is to always buy a back up pair if you find a great fitting boot. If you find a wide fit boot that is super comfortable, especially if it’s classic black or brown, make sure to grab a second pair of boots too so you have a back up. And if they have more than one colour, grab those too, because you should never underestimate a well fitting boot.
Here are our current faves…
This sleek black boot with buckle detail comes in a Wide E Fit and is specifically for curvier calves. This is a perfect classic boot that you can wear season after season and easily team it with a skirt or dress, but also tuck in a pair of skinny jeans. Reheel the boots at the end of each season so they’re ready for the following autumn.
How gorgeous are these boots? These over the knee, wide fit boots come in a EEE fitting and look like they’ve just stepped off the catwalk. We would pair them with floaty, 70’s inspired dresses for that on trend, winter Boho feel.
Duo boots are great! They come in a 11 different calf widths and so you can get exactly the fit that you want! The boots are made from gorgeous quality materials and they have lots of classic black and brown options as well as some zanier choices. This Sherwood boot also comes in black, but a flat boot is perfect for everyday use and these boots are really built to last.
The Belmore is just such a sexy boot! It also comes in brown, but this heeled boot with stunning stitch detailing is quite a show stopper. Its sleek design makes it perfect to wear with smarter and dressier outfits and of course like all Duo Boots you can pick your calf measurement. Win!
We can always rely on Evans to have a good selection of wide fit boots and these come in a EEE fitting. Available in both black and brown you can wear these for smart or casual occasions and pair them with trousers or dresses equally. They also come in an E fitting.
Don’t dismiss a short boot this season. A little biker boot is incredibly versatile and while it’s perfect for a dressed down denim look they will also look great with dresses. This is the kind of boot you can wear right through spring and into early summer too, so it is a good investment piece.
How amazing are these lace up boots! These really are super chic purchase, a classic lace up again won’t date in a hurry and these military style boots are streamlined enough that they will look chic but still have quite a stompy, hardwearing feel to them. These will work amazingly with opaque tights and this season’s 70’s inspired dresses. Alternatively, like the picture wear with skinny jeans or a pair of thick leggings. In fact Yours Clothing in general have a great selection of wide fit boots.
An over the knee boot is absolutely gorgeous with knitted dresses and with party thigh skimming sequin dresses alike. These won’t be the boots you wear everyday, but they will be the ones you drag out when you want to make a statement.
We’ve covered the basics, now lets go for the wild cards like these incredible snake skin boots! These are certainly going to turn heads and will be fab paired simply with an LBD.
What a great pop of colour! These rust hued boots are autumn in a shoe and will look amazing with all those earthy colours that are huge at the moment.
We love these cognac coloured boots that you can see straight away are cut with bigger calves in mind so you can rest assured Lane Bryant boots will offer you a curvy loving fit.
These boots are giving us all those quilted Chanel vibes. These are super chic but are very much a smart everyday style. We would be wearing these with absolutely everything. That quilt look is so country chic and won’t be out of fashion anytime soon.
Love, love, love these two tone boots. Like the quilted Torrid boots, these are pretty reminiscent of the latest Chanel collection too, that featured a slouchy two-tone boot. These are gorgeous and that black and chocolate brown combo is bang on trend for autumn/winter 2020.
Jones Bootmaker is a great make of boot and these solid leather boots with an extra wide fit calf measurement are a wise investment for the winter season. Plus they’re in the sale too!
