Knee high boots are one of this season's biggest trends.
They were seen everywhere on the AW14 catwalks; from Gucci, worn with sixties mini dresses and A-line skirts, to Topshop Boutique where they were paired with oversized, belted-in coats for a more work-friendly winter look. They're also looking big for SS15 - so worth the investment buy - with Frida Giannini completing looks with them again, and models wearing them at Louis Vuitton.
The best thing about knee high boots? Their wearability. As we saw on the catwalks, this footwear is seriously versatile and practical. If you've never braved an over-the-knee or thigh-high style before, this is the winter to do so. Not only are they on-trend but they're perfect for smartening up your sweater dresses and getting those jeans and shirt combos ready for the cold months.
All you have to decide is whether to go heeled or flat. We're liking a small block heel, but more casual flat styles can be just as chic, as seen on Olivia Palermo and Miranda Kerr.
Though there are some beautiful investment pairs about, from See By Chloe and L'Autre Chose, the high street has a fabulous and very affordable offering from Zara, H&M and Topshop, too.
