The Best Knee High Boots To Make Every Outfit Better

You won't want to wear anything else.

We’ve done the crisp autumn leaves, had too many pumpkin spice lattes and trawled through the best celebrity Halloween lewks. Winter isn’t just coming, it’s here. With it comes the arrival of boot season, specifically knee-high boots. The smartest member of the boot family. Now that we're getting into the swing of winter dressing, it's worth noting that not only are they polished, 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 in the book 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 - and 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 the recent Copenhagen Fashion Week, meanwhile, cowboy boots rode back into town. Ganni's chocolate brown suede pair, which are knee-high and have plenty of rodeo flair thanks to white stitching and a Cuban-style heel, were spotted on the assembled influencers, several of whom wore them with printed leggings and matching turtlenecks.

Some other great brands for women's knee-high boots are Russell & Bromley, Dune, Ganni and Paris Texas, which is the cool girl's go-to. If you're after heeled boots, Aedye's Britta, 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 - for a look that's straight out of Little Women (in a good way). And for a slightly more stompy pair, Uterqüe's have the requisite thick sole, making them the perfect choice for puddle season.
