Now before you start to assume something, no this is not about people's dress sizes. It's actually about the latest trend that has been flying off the shelves in shops like Topshop and ASOS, this trend is the chunky boot. I've always wanted a pair of these but have been scared since they always cost so much, but whilst out shopping in Chester today I found New Look has a whole collection of the beauty's for under £40! My friend actually ended up buying a pair, which is why I had the urge to blog about it because I didn't want you guys to miss out on a hidden gem!

So I've never been a huge fan of New Look, and usually I only go in there for the basics, like a vest, or some ankle socks. But my friend Elen who is a massive fan, dragged me in there yesterday to look at the shoes since she has basically ruined every pair she has by going walking in them (no joke). So me and my other chummy Ceri had a wander through the heeled shoes section, and I spotted these gorgeous boots (top left). Sadly they were all sold out besides the pair that was on the side which were size fives, Ceri's size. I had to take one for the team and watch Ceri buy these beautiful things, and it broke my fashionista heart. But after looking online, they have all sizes available (4-8), so I'm in luck! But since it's coming to winter time, I'm pretty sure this pair will be selling quick, so get yours while you still have the chance.
The next pair are a lot more chic, and 'high fashion'. The heel on the boot resembles the usual chelsea boots, but the cut outs at the sides make it look a lot more elegant, and you can also dare to wear them with colourful socks, or if you're not that adventurous, some thick cotton ones. I'm also very fond of buckles at the moment, I think they add so much edge to an outfit, and they pair so well with tartan... anything.
The last ones remind me of those sky high shoes that some of you ladies like to wear on a friday night (I'm 14 and live in a village so there's no hope for me on friday nights besides babysitting and movie nights with myself) and I think they can be very classy if you maybe pair them with skinny jeans, and a blouse? They'd be perfect for a meal out, the only trouble I'd find is walking in them, it's quite hard for me to walk in wedges, let alone these monsters. I might have to google a 'how to walk in heels' tutorial soon.
Or if you don't want to go for the classic black chunk, you could always try something different? Here are my picks for some other winter footwear that are maybe a little bit more 'you'.
Did you like these chunks? Which are your favourite pair, let me know, thanks for sticking with me, love you.
