Now that winter is fast approaching, it's time to invest in a pair of knee-high boots. We're talking about the kind of boots you don't ever want to take off, the kind that won't make your feet bleed.
If you're sorted with a pair of ankle boots (yes, the new season wardrobe needs both) then you can justify buying a pair of the following - especially if you go for a different style and shade.
It's all too easy to fall in love with luxe leather boots that cost a bomb.
So, to save you spending a month's rent we've handpicked some styles that tick the Autumn/Winter 2014 trend box for under £100.
Opting for classic black is a no-brainer, and there are some brilliant styles available on the high street.
Topshop's Corbett high leg boots (£98) are spot on, Zara has a gorgeous patent chain detail pair (£59.99) and the Kylie suedette knee highs from Boohoo.com (£35) are a total bargain.
For a flash of colour on your feet go green, burgundy or tan. The rouched 'wine' leather pair from Office (£95) will look fab with woolly grey or black tights, jeans, leather pencil skirt, crisp white shirt and anything cashmere.
