With the colder weather looming and the dark nights returning, this can only mean one thing. Winter. Summer has been and gone and left us with the chilly months of the year to deal with, but there is no need to be too down about this. After all, a new season means new styles and trends to discover. Plus the one thing we have all been waiting to do for weeks, get our hands on the latest boots. Boots are the ultimate in winter fashion and you can bet there are plenty to be had this AW12.

With a great pair of boots you can greet winter with a smile. They keep the cold out and the style in. So why not update your look for the current season and find yourself a pair or two. You will come across plenty of styles in the latest collections. The high end designer labels have been hard at work to offer some of the finest autumn / winter boots we have ever seen. So what is out there?

The biker boot seems to have made a comeback once again. Many of you will have already tried this trend earlier on in the year when they were last seen on the catwalks. Choose a mid length pair with a small chunky heel, added studs and buckles will add even more style to your look. Wear with a biker jacket for a full on edgy outfit, or team with a girly dress to mix it up a bit.

Cowboy boots are also doing a 360 and returning to our wardrobes. These were last seen a few years ago when the whole cowboy look was in. But since then they have had a major overhaul and are looking pretty stylish from where we are standing. Black and beige are good choices when it comes to colour. You will also find some with a few on trend studs and buckles included too. So you will most certainly not look like a cowboy with this fantastic footwear.

Riding boots are also a clear winner this winter. Perfect for long walks or even longer shopping trips, their comfort comes right up alongside their style. Opt for some in a shiny leather style for a sophisticated look. Both black and brown designs will work with your entire wardrobe too, so choose whichever pair you want.

Why not add a little AW12 style to your look this season with the latest collections of womens boots on offer.
