How to wear chelsea boots

I remember wearing these when I was about 17. I didn't think I would want to wear them again but the more I see them the more I'm going to be a sheep about them.

Firstly, Queen VB rocks in hers


Other gorgeous ladies rock in theirs (source Pinterest)



Where to buy?

ASOS - £40 (comes in tan as well).


Gap - £79.95



Topshop - £55


Clarks - £79.99 (also in tan)


Mango - £69.99


Marks and Spencer - £185 (coughing at price)


Oh and check out this tartan scarf which I love. Inspired by this amazing ensemble via Pinterest. I'll do a style steal on this look very soon - I think she looks amazing.


Are Chelsea Boots for you? I'm thinking they are for me now (discounted this trend earlier on the year so now I am eating my words)!

  2. I went through a few pairs of these in my younger years and though I do like them - they are a bit of a killer on my legs in terms of how they look. Admittedly, the M&S ones are the ones I like because the shaping on them is the most refined and I know to be the most leg lengthening on me as they have a slightly elongated toe. But I might pass on the boots for now ... unless a pair comes out and clobbers me on the head and says "buy me now".

    1. I adore the M&D ones but the price hurts my eyes (and wallet).
      I need to try some one because I'm not sure that my pipe cleaner legs can take these

  3. I've brought a similar style boot last year although they've got a block heel & pointed toe with I prefer for teaming with skinny jeans. You can't beat a pair of boots you can just pull on for winter!

    1. I bought the most amazing pair of brown biker boots from Tesco of all places last summer - I ADORE them.
      Good luck on making the decision on which one to buy first!

  5. LOVE that VB is embracing her flats! The M&S tan ones are DIVINE - yes expensive but they have a beautiful shape - Chelsea boots need to be slim otherwise you can look like you're wearing flippers!

    1. I am yet to try a pair on - they might not even suit me. I agree that M&S ones are superb and it's the colour AND the style that makes them so. I still can't get my head around a pair of boots from M&S costing £185!

  8. I'm not sure! I love them on others .. but I'm not sure on me! I wear knee high flat boots but for some reason I don't feel small in those (don't ask, just agree with me!!!) But I think they'd look amazing on you, you long legged, leggy creature!!

  15. I have a pair that I bought for my son that turned out to be too small, I am wondering if I would look like a man if I wear size 9s with thick socks!

  16. I've got that pinned too & its certainly a style I intend to steal! She looks great doesn't she?! I had chelsea boots from Shellys when I was about that age Fiona & I loved them! I would love a pair now too! Its nice to see VB in flats for a change isn't it?! Ax

  18. I love chelsea boots, I like a more pointed toe or rather almond than really round though. I just think they are a fab fall boot, easy to walk in and look cool.
