We've found the best knee high boots on offer for every budget

Autumn is here and it’s time to starting thinking about boots! Ankle boots are a staple in every cold weather wardrobe but we think it’s time to invest in a pair of knee high boots – just like the Duchess of Cambridge!

We’ve scoured the high street and beyond to find you the perfect pair whatever your budget, including an almost lookalike high-street pair to Kate’s £475 dark mid-length Penelope Chilvers boots that she wore on her recent royal tour of Canada with Prince William, George and Charlotte.

Leather knee boots are smart enough to wear to work – try them with a midi dress and trench coat. Whilst flat suede boots work well with jeans for a relaxed casual look. Check out the best jeans to wear with your boots here.

If you struggle with the fit of knee high boots, look out for elasticated sides and try the pair below from Simply Be, they have a wider fitting as standard and have elastic sides so they don’t dig in.

Think about how often you’ll wear your boots, if you’re looking for something on trend for the season try Asos or River Island, if you’re looking for something to wear for years to come try the leather and suede styles from Fairfax & Favor or Dune.

Fashion Editor’s tip – If you always choose black, try navy instead. It’s a classic that will still go with everything and add another dimension to your outfits.
