An elegant yet contemporary mix of autumn staples and more exciting trend-led styles with a focus on tone-on-tone panelling, shearling linings and spat button fastenings make up the autumn 10 women’s collection at Clarks. Sleek riding boots, shoe boots with chunky cube heels and tough ankle boots with side buckle fastenings also feature.
The boot offer is the highlight, and features high-quality leather and suede. A chestnut, plum, tan, taupe and jet black palette dominates, with an androgynous theme bubbling under the surface. Flat pumps with delicate across-the-foot strapping add a feminine dimension.
The only downside is an upturned rounded toe story in purple suede, which looks a little witch-like and could struggle.
- Chestnut riding boots with a thin sole and side pull-up tabs
