Women's chunky boots outfit ideas

What are chunky boots?

With the arrival of winter comes the arrival of the chunky boot. A footwear fave in the fashion world, chunky boots have officially made their way to the top of this season’s must-haves — and it’s easy to see why. As well as their weather-proof qualities, they also look seriously cool and feel seriously comfy. Now that’s a wardrobe winner in our eyes. 🤩

If you’re yet to treat your feet to a pair of women’s chunky boots, then you might not be familiar with this shoedrobe staple. From ankle styles to chunky over-the-knee boots, they come in all different lengths. In fact, the only thing that stays the same from pair to pair is the stomper sole. And when it comes to choosing a pair of chunky sole boots, we say, the chunkier the better. Plus, they’re a great way to add some low-key height to your look. From chunky black boots to white chunky boots, leather-look to patent, short and longer styles, there’s a pair of chunky boots out there to complement every outfit you own.

10 ways to wear chunky boots

Whether you smarten them up with a blazer or pair them with a cosy puffer, one thing’s for sure – we’re going to be stomping about all season in chunky boots. To help with styling inspo, we’ve rounded up 10 ways to wear them courtesy of our fave celebs.

Hailey Bieber wearing chunky boots with a long winter coat

1. The Feeling Formal Look

Who better to kick-start the inspo than style icon Hailey? We love how she gives this pair of chunky ankle boots a sophisticated vibe with a longline tailored coat. Another thing we love? How she proves to everyone that leather on leather looks amazing. Cat-eye sunnies (and a latte) are the perfect way to finish the look. ☕

Zara Larsson wearing chunky boots with ripped jeans

2. The Effortlessly Cosy Look

Zara knows exactly how to nail that effortless look for winter. As she demonstrates, chunky platform boots are perfect for when you’re out and about shopping and running errands. Just pair them with ripped mom jeans and a statement slouchy knit for a look that combines comfort with cool.

Emili Sindlev wearing knee high chunky boots and blazer

3. The Model Off-Duty Look

Emili Sindlev is giving us serious off-duty model vibes in these khaki chunky knee-high boots – they make such a fresh alternative to classic black ones. Like Emili, stick to an autumnal colour palette and style them with an oversized blazer and roll neck for a look that has 9 to vibe written all over it. 🍷

Bella Hadid wearing chunky boots with a puffer coat

4. The All Wrapped Up Look

Bella Hadid knows the key to cosiness – a pair of chunky lace-up boots and a duvet-rivalling puffer coat. We’ll be copying this outfit all season long. Tip: when it comes to wearing chunky ankle boots with jeans that aren’t skinnies, make sure they’re cropped so your footwear is on show. After all, they deserve to be in the spotlight…

Xenia Adonts wearing chunky boots and co-ord set

5. The Better Together Look

Ditch the courts, it’s all about chunky boots this szn. Cute co-ords and black chunky ankle boots may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you’re outfit planning but as Xenia shows, they look great together. In fact, chunky boots are an easy way to give a sophisticated set a super cool edge. We’re obsessed.

Irina Shayk wearing chunky boots with a biker jacket

6. The Cool Girl Look

We just love how a pair of chunky leather boots can transform an outfit in seconds. Copy Irina and coordinate your biker jacket with lace-up chunky biker boots that hit mid shin for the coolest look, like ever. Even better, throw in a pair of faux snake trousers and a trending mini bag. Now, where’s that motorbike…🏍️

Caroline Daur wearing chunky boots with a trench coat

7. The Beautifully Bold Look

The best thing about black chunky boots? They go with absolutely everything. Like Caroline Daur shows, these chunky patent boots make the perfect addition to bold clashing colours. They manage to add a little height and comfort without distracting from the centrepiece of the look: the statement coat. 🧡

Gigi Hadid wearing black chunky boots

8. The Always Easy Look

The perfect companion to your cropped denim? Chunky leather boots. Gigi nails that I-haven’t-even-tried look with dark-wash jeans, a cosy knit, fleece and of course, slicked back hair. Sometimes you just want something cool and comfy to slip into when you’re out and about and a pair of chunky lace-up boots ticks the box every single time.

Ciara wearing chunky boots with a denim outfit

9. The Double Denim Look

Want to know how to dial double denim up a notch? With a pair of black chunky Chelsea boots, of course. Make like Ciara and choose jeans in a light wash so yours really stand out. More glam than a pair of trainers yet not quite as dressy as heels, this look is perfect for when you’re not 100% what the dress code is.

Bella Hadid wearing chunky boots with a knitted dress

10. The Keep It Chic Look

We’re falling for Bella Hadid’s winter style thanks to this orange jumper dress and black chunky boots combo. Not only has she matched the patent pair to her ‘90s-inspired shoulder bag, but she’s also complimented the gold hoop details to her earrings. Yep, we’re obsessed.
