We may not have fully come to terms with the fact summer will soon be a distant memory, but as we wave goodbye to our trusty Havaianas (yes, flip-flops made a high-fashion return in 2018), we can say hello to all the boots. Naturally there are tonnes of styles popping up all over our favourite sites, but how do you choose the winning pair? With our help, of course. The fashion editor–approved pairs we’ll all be wearing have something in common that we love: animal print. Adding it to your closet is the first step to curating your autumn capsules, and it’s made even easier thanks to this lot.
Fail-safe leopard print is always expected to make an appearance around this time of year, but it’s the whole animal kingdom that’s got us talking. From statement cow prints (yes, really) to jazzy zebra, there are so many pairs out there making a serious case for animal-inspired footwear. Now that these printed boots have every influencer’s approval (along with our own), it’s time to take note. But how do you wear them? There’s no right or wrong way (although, updating your jeans-and-T-shirt combo has never been so simple), but believe us when we say you have to wear them with confidence. These are the pairs you’ll be buying now and wearing forever. It’s time to take a walk on the wild side.
