The £50 Knee-High Boots All Our Editors Just Bought for Autumn

Recently I’ve discovered that there’s no more versatile boot than a black leather knee-high. Right now, I’m wearing them to bring all my dresses into autumn. They also make a mini dress or skirt feel polished, and pair effortlessly with midi skirts, jeans and leggings too. So that’s basically everything I ever wear, then. Having a classic pair in your capsule allows you to unlock so many chic outfits, and although I tend to wear mine through spring and winter too, it’s autumn when they really come into their own. Being such a wardrobe staple, you’ll find a lot of iterations out there, from Prada to Zara. But this year, there’s one high street pair in particular that’s won the whole Who What Wear team over— and they’re from H&M.   

The trusty affordable retailer has done us all a favour and produced the most perfect classic pair of heeled knee high boots— no bells and whistles, no trend-led detailing, just the comfy, block-heeled, mid-height black leather boots we’ve all been searching for. In fact they’ve released not one, but two options—one budget-friendly under-£50 style which also comes in a fresh cream shade, and a premium real leather version for just under £100, if you’re looking to invest a bit more for better quality.
