Boots, glorious boots. There’s a whole host of boot styles that are taking our fancy this season but there’s one cool kicker that never goes out of fashion – the Chelsea boot.

Whether you’re after a pair of suede Chelsea boots, some leather lovelies or cheap Chelsea boots, we’ve got you covered. Because let’s face it, there’s just something undeniably cool about them, isn’t there?

Easily recognised by their statement elastic strip, this throwback style reworks itself year after year with newbie updates including metallic shades, chunky soles and patent textures. And ASOS, Topshop and Office are offering up some beauties for 2016…

And the thing we love most about the Chelsea boot? Well, you can guarantee that a decent pair of of these classic ankle grazers will act like the sartorial backbone of your seasonal wardrobe. The Chelsea boot is the bona fide work horse of the footwear world.

In winter, a classic patent Chelsea boot (like the ones we saw in Shuh and Topshop) will give your workwear threads a cute ’60s polish, especially when teamed with a colour block shift dress and thick opaques. Then, why not wear the same boots with fishnets, a leather biker and a flippy skater skirt for an edgy evening look – see, they really do work like a dream.

We’re also loving the epic colour range of Chelsea boots this year. Rich colours across the berry spectrum are gracing both flat and block heeled styles, with high street offerings in warm shades of mulberry, claret and wine.

Plus, because the Chelsea boot is traditionally a flat ankle style, they are also super comfy to wear all day every day. Even the heeled styles are going to tick all the practical boxes without losing one iota of cool. Happy days!

We’ve rounded up our pick of the bunch so you can get in on this trademark trend…
