If you had told us a year ago that come autumn we’d be longing to wear tall boots with a print to match our dress, we bet we’d have thought it was a pretty odd idea. But every once in a while a trend comes out of left field that throws you, only for you to eventually realise what all the fuss is about… it’s so, so good.

Caroline is wearing ROKSANDA dress, ROKSANDA leather belt, and Malone Soulier X ROKSANDA boots

ROKSANDA knot-detail leather belt

This season, thigh high boots are back in a big way. Whether it’s the striped ROKSANDA pair that Caroline wears above, Altuzarra’s floral “Elliot” or Saint Laurent’s Swarovski-encrusted “Nikki” embellished with 3,000 crystals. Or, lest we mention the skin tight Balenciaga “knife” thigh highs that come in bold shades and soft velvets (Lily Aldridge wore a blood red pair under a Ralph Lauren white silk gown to this year’s Met Gala). We’re craving thighs-the-limit heels made to disappear under flowy skirts and long dresses.

Malone Souliers X ROKSANDA boots 

Bearing as little skin as possible seems to be the new sexy this autumn. We’re all for it!

We’ve curated our top picks from the runway of daring thigh highs and boot-to-outfit co-ords that have us excited this season.
