Summer Boots Are Trending. Here Are 8 Ways to Wear Them from Now Till September
You’re well versed in the art of pairing sneakers with dresses, flat sandals with miniskirts and kitten heels with jeans. Now it’s time to tackle the newest footwear trend: summer boots. Yes, your go-to winter favorite is sneaking its way past Memorial Day, and we’re kind of in love with the whole thing. Here are eight different (and awesome) ways to try the trend.
Light-Brown Booties with a floral dress
Let’s start with a classic western ankle boot. Opt for lighter shades like beige, caramel and tan to keep your outfit from looking too heavy. Pair with a flirty ruffled minidress and you’ll be good to go.
Patterned Ankle Boots and a Printed Miniskirt
Bright hues, like magenta and ultra violet, and bold patterns, like stripes and florals, feel fresher than your dark, studded winter go-tos. Have fun mixing and matching with a poppy miniskirt or statement sunglasses.
Grunge Combat Boots and a shirtdress
Not so much a fan of ditsy spring daisies or tropical prints? Lucky for you, a pair of worn-in lace-ups looks just as good with your fall plaid pants as it will with your spring plaid shirtdress. Just be sure to go for a thinner sole or you might end up looking like you’re rocking winter boots in June.
Metallic Booties, a short-sleeve button-down and mini skirt
The easiest way to dress up a chill Hawaiian shirt and raw-hem denim? Why, with a pair of sparkly ankle boots, of course. Mimic the glittering summer sun with any mix of silver, gold and copper for guaranteed success.
Sock Boots, cropped trousers and an easy Tee
This slick, lightweight style is a super-easy way to dress up even the most casual clothing. Think about it...the rest of her outfit is basically pajamas.
Hiking Boots and a Maxi Skirt
Leave the shorts for actual hiking and opt for a pretty maxi skirt instead (ideally one that hits just above your ankle for a little flash of skin). The flowy, delicate fabric balances out those tough, durable lace-ups.
