WHY YOUR WARDROBE NEEDS KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

We became knee-high boot converts when we realised that there’s possibly nothing you can’t wear them with...

TIMELESS BUY

There’s not many items that work quite as hard as a pair of knee-high boots. Reliable, versatile and chic… they’re just as brilliant for elevating basics as they are for adding an unexpected twist to skirts and dresses. That said, we know they can be daunting if you're a knee-high newbie, so here's how to work them into your wardrobe…

1.THEY'RE THE IDEAL EVENING ALTERNATIVE

It’s good to shake up your fashion formula every now and then – change is good, as they say -and nothing is easier than swapping your go-to shoes for knee-high boots. Experiment with mixing textures and prints between your dresses and footwear. Our natural snakeskin-print pair are great for injecting interest to a little black dress… and if you haven’t had chance to, ahem,  address your leg hair then no-one need ever know.

2. THEY TRANSFORM JEANS

In the same way that a leather biker jacket can instantly top off the simplest of outfits, knee-highs possess the same magical power. See Reese Witherspoon’s off-duty LA look, which with  trainers, could have erred on the side of ‘soccer mom’ sporty. Instead, her suede boots turn things up a notch, while still looking effortless. If you love her deep tan pair then check out our gorgeous style in sumptuous cognac suede.

3. THEY TACKLE THE 'TIGHTS OR NO TIGHTS?' CONUNDRUM

Knee-high boots are a trans-seasonal saviour. If you’re keen to eke more wear out of your summer dresses (which let’s be fair, haven’t had much chance to shine thanks to this dire weather) then throw on a pair of knee-highs and all that’s is a flash of leg, cancelling out the tights debate altogether. Easy!

4. THEY'RE BORN TO BE WORN WITH PENCIL SKIRTS

You might have noticed that we’ve got a real thing for pencil skirts. But if you fancy a change from the usual pencil-skirt-and-court-shoe combo,  try knee-high boots instead. You can forgo tights and enjoy the feeling of wearing heels while barely showing any skin, all while looking ridiculously chic. There's a reason it's a favourite pairing among the fashion pack.

5. THEY INSTANTLY ELEVATE CASUAL OUTFITS

We know the feeling – you’ve just settled into your weekend uniform of jeans and a comfy top when it dawns on you that Sunday equals a long lunch with the in-laws. No need for a last-minute outfit crisis; just look to our punch-packing boots for that little extra style lift. If it’s good enough for Kate Moss…
