When it comes to winter boots, most of us are guilty of making a beeline straight towards the black or brown pairs sitting pretty on the shelf – practical they may be, but sometimes not the most exciting choice. While we’re not suggesting a pair of bright red kicks (although we’re certainly not discouraging that either!), a great alternative to all the black and brown pairs out there is a fabulous shade of grey.
Extremely versatile, they can interchange with the black boots in your wardrobe easily and can be paired with bold colour, pretty pastels and even the colour that black isn’t too fond of being paired with – navy blue. A lighter shade of grey can look especially pretty with pastel pink, while a darker shade looks great with black tights or leggings.
Some of the celebs who have jumped on the grey boot bandwagon include Nicky Hilton, Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes, Taylor Momsen, Claudia Schiffer and Olivia Palermo.
