Oh ankle boots, we heart you. The ankle bootie has become a mainstay in our closet and gives flats a serious run for their money when it comes to versatility. Think booties are only for cold weather? Think again! You can rock an ankle boot all year long.
Here are some easy ways to wear ankle boots in the summer!
Aim for air flow
We tend to show a bit more skin on our arms and legs during the summer months, so let your feet do the same! Swap out your classic full coverage suede or leather bootie for perforated or peep-toe style to let those toes breathe. Pair with some distressed denim shorts or white denim for an easy, breezy combo.
When you break out your ankle boots this summer, reach for lighter hues—grey, beige, tan, olive and even mustard booties all work well with the softer shades we see in tops, shorts and dresses.
Shorten your hems
Give your ankle boots a warm-weather feel by pairing them with leg-baring dresses, shorts or cropped pants. Mix feminine and utilitarian with a floral dress and tan ankle boots or pair your slouchy boyfriend jeans and perforated ankle boots with a trendy off the shoulder top or boho-inspired peasant blouse.
