My footwear staple are ankle boots. I just love them and come Autumn I'd be lying if I said you'd spot me in the street wearing anything but them. But in the summer? Can I really wear boots? The answer is yes, and so can you. It's all about the styles you pick and how you wear them.
Choosing The Right Style
With many different styles and colours to choose from picking a pair of boots may seem like a bit of a minefield but luckily the weather here in the UK makes it fairly easy for us to sport a variety of boots nearly all Spring or Summer long. To put it simply, less is more. Ankle boots are an easy choice as their shorter style leaves legs free to be as covered or uncovered as you desire, whilst cutouts and backless boots like those I'm wearing here are ideal to stay cool. Another favourite of mine are fringed boots for a boho festival vibe and remember that pointed boots help to elongate legs if, like me, your legs are your least favourite body part. As for heel height, this is something that's a personal choice but make sure you keep the occasion in mind, you perhaps wouldn't want to trot along in high heeled boots if you're planning a picnic in the park, for example.
How To Wear Them
Wearing boots in Summer is not as hard as you may think. In fact, it's pretty damn easy. Ankle boots especially will go with anything and everything. Pair it them with a maxi skirt and crop top like I have here, a pretty summer dress, shorts and a t-shirt or shirt or even jeans and a floaty vest top on slightly colder days. The options are endless and the key is to ensure the rest of your outfit doesn't look too wintery. It's all about experimenting so go ahead and mix and match with your existing wardrobe or have a look at the items I've picked out below.
