You don't really need us to tell you that Chelsea Boots are hot to trot this season, and there's plenty to love about a style you can effortlessly pull on that looks great worn with your day-to-day gear in all weathers. They're the ultimate fusion of practicality and style, and we keep spotting more and more that really hit our style radar. Our latest pick is this plum-coloured (OK, they call it aubergine) boot from Clarks, which has a gorgeous textured leather upper we just want to stroke!

Clarks has long been a favourite of ours, particularly for winter boots and other pieces that we need to be particularly hard-wearing. But they've surpassed themselves with this style, which taps into the season's key colour trends and pushes all the right buttons in terms of quality too. The boots are priced at £69 here, which we think is pretty reasonable for such a wardrobe staple, and we think it would look amazing worn with black skinny jeans, providing a vibrant pop of winter colour.
