At their core, the best Chelsea are defined by two important details, the ankle height and an upper constructed from two pieces sewn together in leather, not forgetting the panels of elastic that unites the two parts on either side. These, remember, are pull-on boots, but the most important part of a Chelsea boots is the shape of the toe. And the rule of thumb, the more tapered the toe, the dressier the boot, which means you should be looking for a pair of boots that is neither severely pointy or like clown shoes. Go for an egg-shaped round but not too round.
For business pick up a pair that has a slightly more pointier toe and slimmer ankle, and a rounder toe for casual and play. You got it? Chelsea boots are perfect for that classic, laidback look, and If you want a pair for the evenings, go for black or dark brown, suede or leather, as they will look great with slim cut, not skinny indigo jeans, casual shirt and sweater. Suede Chelsea boots can make a pair of distressed denims look a bit more polished, just throw on a polo neck sweater and a loose fitting coat or unstructured jacket for a more sophisticated take on street style.
