Winter in Dubai really is the best – perfect weather, loads of events and outdoor festivals and sales galore! The chillier season of course also has another advantage over summer… We’re talking about boots! Who doesn’t love breaking out their favourite boots a soon as the temperature dips? We’ve rounded up our five favourite pairs and what to wear them with, so you don’t get stuck in the old “skinny jeans and ankle boots” rut. From the cowboy boot that will rock your New Year’s party to the diamanté pair that will shimmer on the dance floor, shop our favourite pairs of boots this season right here.
1. THE “LOOK AT ME” RED BOOTIE
Who says you can’t rock a statement red boot any time of day? The key is to tone it down a little with what’s on top. Wear with distressed jeans and an oversized white button-down shirt for a look that oozes cool and confidence.
