The cold season isn't over yet, and it's not too late to add a stylish pair of boots to your cart. Contributing fashion editor Mmaketi Langa says "we still want to look cute in winter, and one of the seasonal essentials that always boosts my confidence is a stand-out pair boots". There are loads of options; from flats to heeled platforms and everything in between. Not only are boots always in, but the right ones can be a statement piece that will stay in your wardrobe for a long time to come. The following boot trends are a must-have in 2022 (and you don’t have to sacrifice your comfort, either!).
Looking for the best winter boot trends to add to your closet? Here are fashionista, Mmaketi Langa’s, suggestions.
Trend #1: The Sleek Pointed Boot
This style never fails to fly off the shelves and ‘classy’ is the perfect word to describe them. There’s no better way to style a sleek pointed boot than with a mini skirt and a tailored shirt for maximum night-out appeal. Opt for a black suede finish boot and pair it with a pop of colour mini bag for an impressive dinner date look.
Trend #2: The Square Toe Classic Boot
These boots deliver retro vibes and pair well with vintage pieces. The best part? Block heels are enough to give you height but not so high that your feet hurt, making them a comfy yet fashion-forward choice. They look *gorg* with wide-leg or flared jeans. You can also style these with a summer dress on a warm winter day for brunch or a coffee date. The key is to go with the sixties aesthetic and let that be your fashion mantra for this look.

Trend #3: The Platform Heel Boot
Not only are these boots comfortable, but they're also edgy and bad-ass and will channel your inner Euphoria aesthetic. You will never get tired of these in black because they’re versatile and timeless and will go with any item in your wardrobe. I like to style mine with a crop top and neon pink wide-leg pants for a Y2K 90's vibe.
Trend #4: The Knee-High Boot
You definitely want to show these babies off, so style them with short and contrasting hemlines for extra drama. I like to pair my utility knee-high boots with a micro skirt and a leather trench coat for a futuristic Matrix aesthetic. Make sure to leave the buttons undone and only tie the belt of your coat so the boots are not completely hidden. This look is ideal for late lunch transitioning to dinner with your girls.
Trend #5: The Chunky Boot
These tractor tyre boots are the most casual and easy to style. Wear with mom jeans or wide-leg jeans to achieve that effortless look. Or pair this winter boot trend with a midi dress and layer it with a biker jacket for a cute brunch date. You can also wear it with your sweat set and a puffer jacket to elevate your post-workout outfit.
