Wowcher vs Oucher: Winter Footwear



Boots are essential in this winter weather, but with all that rain and potential for snow, splashing out on a fancy pair may not be the greatest idea. While designer labels set the trends, we know that they’re certainly not the be all and end all of fashion – so with a Santa-style sack full of bargain wintery treats for your feet, today’s blog is designed with the sole purpose of showing you how we deliver style at a fraction of the price! With a variety of different trends on offer, we invite you to buckle, lace and fasten up as we walk you through a selection of the most boot-iful winter footwear trends…


Round 1: Ankle boots



A staple this season, ankle boots will see you right through from autumn to spring and are perfect whether worn at work, play or during the day. From red to animal print and sparkly to peep toe, we’ve seen them all – but if, like us, you can’t afford them all, we think a simple and elegant black pair is your safest bet for maximum wear!

Perfect with just about anything, these black platform Chelsea boots are a sure-fire winner. The chunky heel is bang on-trend and the height is perfect for giving shorter girls a little lift. Similar to the Kurt Geiger ankle boots, we just love the height, gold zip and buckle detailing.

If its everyday flats you’re looking for then these ankle Chelsea boots will certainly do the job. They come in six different styles, including faux suede and faux croc skin, which adds a fabulously luxurious touch – priced at just £14, they’re boot-ilicious!


Round 2: Sheepskin boots

Always a hit for their comfort and warmth, sheepskin boots are an easy way to keep cosy this winter. These super cool and versatile Australian Sheepskin Zippyboots can transform into four different looks, featuring a zip-off tall section and foldable tops. Alternatively, get a pair of these sheepskin and merino wool boots in one of six fabulous colours, which are perfect for tucking in jeans and can be enjoyed for a fraction of the price of luxury brand UGG®.

If your budget doesn’t stretch that far then don’t worry, as we have great faux fur options too. These winter ankle boots feature a cute buckle detail and come in gorgeous teal, and these simple fleece-lined beauties are the cheapest of the bunch at just £8. Baa-gain!


Round 3: Riding boots
A classic style that will forever be in fashion, the riding boot is a must-have that could potentially yield years of wear, providing you give them plenty of care and attention. With lots of different styles kicking about, you could easily grab a slice of this elegant look that’s a favourite of our glamorous Duchess of Cambridge.

Feast your eyes on these beautiful leather riding boots, for example – not dissimilar to those by fashion footwear favourite, Dune, they come in high quality genuine black or brown leather that will weather well and stay solid for years to come. Fantastic for maintaining a snug fit around the calf, they have an elasticated back that also provides breathing room for extra give, stretch and comfort. We think these boots are great, neigh, gorgeous!


Final round: the best of the rest!
A massive trend this year, the thigh-high boot is sexy, daring and fabulous, and we wouldn’t be doing our job right if we didn’t offer you a pair to get you strutting your stuff with the likes of the Kardashians, Rita Ora and Beyoncé!

A slightly more wearable option to the dominatrix-style celebrity showstoppers, these over the knee boots are the perfect statement shoe for the Christmas party season. Wear with a dress or skirt and show off those pins in style!

Forget those Wowcher vs Oucher comparisons for a minute, because we have the real deal with these winter warmers. From fashion brand Rocket Dog, these suede boots are lined with faux fur and come in five neutral colours. The perfect option for the cold winter weather, these casual boots are just right paired with jeans and a jumper on a blustery day. Long-lasting wear and toasty toes? Brilliant!

Finally, if we haven’t quite soled you our theory that our boots can hold their own against high-end retailers, maybe our final pair can seal the deal! Keeping warm is the aim of the coming months, and these 2-in-1 winter boots won’t disappoint! Made from genuine leather and lined with fluffy faux fur, they’re super cosy with sturdy ridged soles that are ideal for wet wintery weather and snowy, slippery streets. “Sold! To the thrifty, fashion-forward miss looking fabulous at the back there!”

Koating up with the Kardashians!

Squad Goals… Khloe Kardashian/Instagram

Weather-wise, we know what we’re doing with winter and summer fashion. The cold requires lots of layering paired with boots and coats, while summer calls for light fabrics and anything strappy, short and loose. Autumn, however, is a bit of a stickler in the fashion stakes, with the sun shining one minute and cold wind and rain knocking us for six the next. One person we can always look to for inspiration is Kim, so why not nail seasonal dressing Kardashian-style this autumn?

Go fur it!
This season sees a 70s-style shearling revolution – we think it’s never been easier to grab a slice of Kendall Jenner’s style than with this reversible fleece-lined faux shearling gilet, paired with a simple but elegant black ensemble. Not only will you be bang on-trend but it’s perfect for the season, adding warmth with autumnal neutral shades – the perfect piece to bridge the gap between summer and winter!

Light it up like a blazer
With party season just around the corner, your strappy dress isn’t going to shield you from the cold and we don’t recommend you rely on your beer jacket at the office Christmas party if you’re looking to avoid a drunken colleague hook-up! Keep it sexy and sophisticated like Kourtney Kardashian with a simple black blazer draped over the shoulders. Not only perfect for a night out, it’s great paired with jeans or work-wear for just enough warmth on a sunny autumn day.
Top tip: keep a scarf in your bag for an easy way of adding warmth should the wind suddenly change!

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Like Mrs Kardashian West we love ourselves a waterfall lapel, and with up to four similar styles on the site at any one time we think we’ve got the one for you. Whether it’s a full-length coat like Kim’s Balenciaga number or our sleeveless waistcoat, waterfall quilted biker or ¾ sleeve belted jacket it’s never been easier to style it up like the Kween of the Kardashians this autumn. With a range of autumnal tones to choose from, you can get the KK seal of approval in colours including wine, khaki, navy, black, white and even camel!

You da bomb-er!
If your style calls for something a little cooler then maybe you should be taking style tips from the Instagram icon herself, Miss Kylie Jenner. This padded bomber could be a great addition to your autumn/winter wardrobe for a look that captures some of Kylie’s trademark quirky style. Pair with jeans and a tee for a casual weekend look or wear over a hoodie for a bit of added warmth when winter’s in full swing.

Go hell for leather
A classic autumn jacket, there’s a lot to be said for a good leather (or pleather!) jacket. Seen on every single Kardashian and Jenner, and most other celebs for that matter, it’s always a sure-fire winner! Perfect for any time of day, the leather is a great alternative to a blazer on an evening and can be an edgy addition to even the most glam of outfits. Check out our favourite Auntie Koko rocking her leather with a pair oversized shades… You go Koko!

Parka it up pack it in, let me begin…
Ok, so we know she’s only two years old, but given her fashionista parents you can forgive us for saying this Kardashian-in-training has style. Featuring in her father Kanye’s music video late last year, North West got her winter fashion right by wrapping up in an adorable parka. She may only be a toddler but her style is far from powder pink and fairy dust. You could certainly take tips from little Nori by snuggling up in this fleece lined hooded parka or, if you’re looking for a more glamorous alternative, this mid-length quilted version should do the trick.

Spring Bling!

Springtime. The season where fashion blogs burst their stylish banks with the word “transitional”. Have you embarked on the transformation that is ‘updating, tweaking and reshuffling your wardrobe’? Have you swapped ‘faux-fur for fibre fresh cotton’? Spare us, please. Because just as you’re worrying whether to bin the cable knit for a little linen number, we have another idea; pluck out the jewellery box. There’s one trademark accessory that stretches across all seasons – and it’s the trinkets, charms and diamonds, darrrrling. Let’s revive the trends:

Make a bold statement
Vie for attention – and win – with a statement piece intended to captivate all those who cross your gem-encrusted path. Go for gold, and pair vibrant stones against neutral fabrics and gilded chains with achromatic greys. Or add spice to lack-lustre basics with clustered-style necklaces bathed in clashing colour combos. For best results, team geometric designs such as the Aztec-inspired necklace with tencel tees and feather light camisoles.

Fans of the statement piece include: Olivia Palermo, Millie Mackintosh, Louise Thompson and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Restore your shine
Forget frenemies, the reliability of the not-so-humble diamond provides us with all the companionship we’ll ever need. Lovers of this timeless trend include Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie and British icon and girl-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne. Match Black diamonds with subtle sterling silver to enhance its multi-faceted glory.

Go Great Gatsby
Pearls, pearls, pearls. A stone so precious we need to scour the aqua-marine waters of New Zealand and China to prise them from their clammy shells. These milk-coloured beauties come in eight basic shapes: round, semi-round, button, drop, pear, oval, baroque, and circled. Known for their iridescent sheen, and metaphorically for their celestial qualities; why not channel the elegance of Kate Middleton with a pearl heart tri set, consisting of a pendant, bracelet and pair of earrings? Other collectors of the shimmering stone include Whitney Port, Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson.

No Damsels in this Dress…

midi dress

Since the dawn of time, whether we look at Greek mythology or Walt Disney, you’ll note that tales have been told about the proverbial damsel in distress; a hapless woman unable to fend for herself but rather awaiting saving from a knight in shining armour. After careful analysis, we’ve noticed a recurring theme amongst these lasses (other than their blinding idiocy – why on earth did Snow White accept food from a stranger?) was their cumbersome clothing. Helen of Troy, Sleeping Beauty, the lot of them all wore flowing gowns that restricted movement and made saving oneself somewhat of a difficult task. However, we’ve got news for them – it’s 2013 now and the hem lines are shorter, the materials thinner and the designs are fitting as opposed to flowing.


Case in point being the ClubL midi dress; sexy, stylish and most importantly not in the slightest bit restrictive. Fair enough the modern woman may not face the same type of danger and there may be no dragons to flee from, however, the salient point remains – there are no damsels in this dress. If you need further convincing, here’s a list of powerful women that favour ‘the midi’:

1. First Lady Michelle Obama
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Nicole Scherzinger (and if you recall ‘she don’t need a man’) Coincidence? We think not…
