After multiple seasons where the bootie reigned supreme, knee-length boots are back in a big way. Here are nine ways to work the trend:
Paris Texas crocodile-effect boot
White boots have long been a winter essential for the fashion set. If you’re looking to invest in the trend, try this pair by Italian label, Paris Texas. We love the matte-finishing and embossed-croc look; pair yours with a mid-calf length dress and an oversized clutch as the temperature drops.
Saint Laurent 76 boot in patent leather
One of the most memorable shows from Paris Fashion Week back in March was the Saint Laurent show, where models marched down the runway in winter wool blazers with latex leggings and pointed pumps. While high-shine leggings may not be for everyone, a pair of pointed patent leather boots can also achieve a similar, strong look. Why not test the waters with this pair from Saint Laurent?

Ganni rubber-trimmed Chelsea boot
It’s easy to see how Scandi label, Ganni, has been gaining traction in the recent years. What’s more – their affordable and stylish pieces do just as much good in our closet as they do for the environment. The label is committed to making better business choices to minimise their social and economical footprint. A style that caught our eye this season is this rubber-trimmed Chelsea boot. Team them with mini dresses or oversized jackets for fall, or wear them with jeans and a coat when the temperate drops.

Gianvito Rossi Martis boot
It’s no secret that Gianvito Rossi makes some of the most comfortable shoe styles around. And while we’ve all seen (and likely own) our fair share of black combat boots, this pair in tan is both unique and easy to wear. Keep it minimal with a monochrome look in natural or autumn tones.

Isabel Marant Lyork boot
Parisian designer Isabel Marant makes some of the most covetable cowboy boots around. Tuck these into skinny jeans or wear them with a mini-skirt – there’s no wrong way to wear them!

Chanel high boots
There’s a high chance you’ve seen these boots before, and that’s because every model that came down the Chanel FW20 runway was wearing them. These mid-heel capped toe boots feature a folder flap in burgundy and is a subtle nod to the house’s predecessor, the late Karl Lagerfeld.

Khaite Dallas Western boots
Crafted in a light gold leather, these Khaite Dallas cowboy boots feature a skinny square toe and a low kitten heel. Let them peek out beneath the hem of a midi skirt or tuck them into a pair of bootleg jeans for a nod to the ’90s.

Celine Folco boots
We’re seeing a return of the riding boot this season from labels like Celine. This pair of tobacco brown boots works perfectly with a pair of skinny jeans and a blazer combo for the colder months.
