Sometimes I think I make up the trends myself. Nah, I’m kidding…I think. I’ve wanted a pair of chelsea boots for months, i’ve been scouring the internet, second hand shops & eBay for a nice vintage or worn looking pair. Good leather. Would last a lifetime.
None felt just right though. And then Topshop A/W happened. And everywhere followed suit.
Here’s a rundown of my favourite highstreet chelsea boot-inspired…. erm, boots. Or ask your mum, maybe she has an old pair stashed away.
Wear with skinny jeans or a pretty dress with a denim shirt thrown over it. Endless options, timeless cool.

Maccoy leopard print brushed chelsea ankle boots
Andre Leather chelsea ankle boot
While these M&S ones may not look like much in the photos, I tried them on today and not only do they fit like a glove, but the heel is a great size for non-regular heel wearers like myself. I love M&S for basics and they always surprise me by having a really on-trend piece done well. This is one of those times.
I will, however, point out that the price in the UK is £35 and yet in Ireland they’re €70. Really, Marks and Spencer?
