How to Wear: Boots in Summer
Boots in summer? It can be done.
In fact, the warmer weather can be a great opportunity to experiment with colours, textures and cuts of boots not often appropriate when the chilly winds are biting at your ankles.
The key to pulling of this trans-seasonal shift is all about balance. Lightweight summer threads call for ankle-grazing boots with low-profile cuts and subtle heels – you want the boots to anchor your outfit, not weigh it down.
Also try experimenting with colours and details – khakis, tans, greys and even white are all great options, while studded embellishments, prints and cut-out designs help take your standard black leather boots into the summertime with ease.
Whichever style you choose, rest assured that your beloved ankle boots need not take a hiatus this summer. In fact, they can take centre stage.
