Forget black footwear, coloured boots are the thing for spring

If anything will put a spring in your step this month in spite of the poor weather, it’s a pair of coloured boots. Here are five of the most fabulous pairs in stores right now.

Pointed toes are the favourite for spring, so these suede ankle boots from online retailer Uterque tick that trend box. The rich berry hue will work equally well with neutrals and pastels (yes, really…try it) so they’re far more versatile than you may think.

The braiding design on these Zara boots makes them an ideal choice for spring through to summer (good ventilation, you see). I love the cone-shaped heel – very fashion forward. These will look great worn with bare feet or tights until the weather warms up a little.

These lace-up boots are a statement shoe for sure. To soften the impact a little, pair with fluid separates rather than anything too fitted. Styled the wrong way, they could look cheap. The key to making sure they look chic instead is to wear with muted shades and modern shapes.

At London Fashion Week last month, lilac green seemed to be a cult colour favoured by the fashion front row. These sock boots from Mango will certainly brighten up any ensemble.

These Marni boots are simply exquisite. This bold shade of cobalt blue is season-less and will work for you from one end of the year to the other. If you want to pep up head-to-toe denim, these are just the thing.
