These Flattering '00s Boots Are Back, and Everyone's Shopping Them Again

Since autumn is in full swing, it's now time to actually buy all the pieces we've had on our wish lists since, well, what feels like forever. First on our winter shopping list? Slouchy boots. Said to be the new style set to knock sock boots off the top spot, the super-slouchy shape comes in every height, colour, fabric and print, and feels like it's stepped straight out of the '80s. However, you may be more likely to associate them with the '00s trends, when Kate Moss was basically betrothed to her slouchy suede boots, teaming them with everything from grey skinny jeans to flippy sundresses.

Style Notes: Over-the-knee boots not only look better slightly slouchy; they're also easier to keep in place as long boots have a tendency to slouchy down anyway.
