Autumn is practically on your door step. And with it comes the arrival of boot season - specifically knee-high boots, the smartest member of the boot family. Now that you're about it get into the swing of autumn/winter dressing, it's worth noting that not only are they polished, but they also make just about every outfit better sans fuss.

The best way to wear yours? My long-held belief is that the easiest styling trick is to slip your knee-high boots underneath a midi-length skirt. Micro hemlines can also work - although flat boots might feel easier to wear with them. The truly brave can also try tucking their jeans into their boots, balancing out the slimline result with an oversized blazer or shirt on top.

At Copenhagen Fashion Week, cowboy boots rode back into town. With plenty of rodeo flair thanks to white stitching and their slanted heels, they're guaranteed to give your outfit some flavour.

Some other great brands for women's knee-high boots are DuoBoots, Russell & Bromley, Dune, and Ganni, which is the cool girl's go-to. If you're after heeled boots, Aedye's Mathilde, a black lace-up pair that has a hint of Victoriana, is beyond perfect. Slip them under a ruffled white dress - something from O Pioneers, perhaps, or Meadows. And for a slightly more stompy pair, Ganni's have the requisite thick sole, making them the perfect choice for puddle season.
