AW'12 Shoe Edit: The Chelsea Boot

AW'12 Shoe Edit:
The Chelsea Boot

Is it just me, or did the Chelsea boot trend just pop up out of nowhere? Wherever it came from, I'm seriously getting into the swing of it. I just have one problem though: I can't find a pair that I can commit to. So with my dilemma in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to make a post about said trend and compile a list of 6 styles I've come across on my search for the perfect Chelsea boot.


Starting at the beginning:

1. Suede Chelsea boot in black from Matalan - £10 - This is the cheapest of the lot, but what I love about this pair is that you can't even tell that they're so cheap. When I found out they were from Matalan, I had to go onto the website just to see if it was true. They also come in purple, red and black glitter. I could easily commit to this pair: cheap and aesthetically pleasing. Done.

2. Michael Kors 'Marden' Chelsea boot - £239 @ FarFetch - Higher up in the budget, but these leather boots from Michael Kors are going to fall into the quality section and give you years of wear. I love the pointed toe and and slick look of these boots the most. 

3. ASOS Amp Chelsea boot - £35 - With only 3 pairs currently in stock, it's clear that these platform heeled Chelsea boots are proving popular with fashionista's alike. Perfect for getting away with wearing your boots on a night out, this style of Chelsea boots are great for wearing both day and night. At £35, it's no wonder they're almost sold out!

4. Boohoo elastic insert ankle Chelsea boot - £30 - I don't know if it's the price, or the fact that I really like the chunky heel on this style that makes me want to buy them more. Whatever the reason, they're a pretty good choice if you want to buy into this particular shoe trend this season.

5. Boohoo Rachel pin stud Chelsea boot - £40 - I love the stud detailing on this pair, as well as the chunky heel. Studs are HUGE among bloggers and street style this year - so don't be surprised if you're getting snapped in these little beauties any time soon.

6. Cheska black patent Chelsea boot - £20 - Patent was a huge trend for AW'12 at shows such as Alexander Wang back in February, so these patent Chelsea boots will help you tick off two trends in the one go no problem. And with a retail price of only £20, you're going to be left over with some cash in your pocket to indulge in other trends as well this Fall.

What do you think of this particular shoe trend for AW'12? Have you bought into it yet?
