When you depend on your ankle boots to get you through winter from start to finish, shoe choice can get a little confusing once the sun comes out to play. We’re telling you now, there’s no need to ditch your boots for sandals, or the on-the-rise slide, if you don’t want to.
An ankle boot, whether it be leather or suede, heeled or flat, is a footwear favourite in any weather. A black leather pair can add a little grunge to a feminine dress, while a tan suede can bring a bohemian vibe.
Trading up your boyfriend jeans and wet-look tights for denim cut-offs and floral minis, or ridding yourself of the second-skin stockings completely doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your personal style for warm-weather comfort.
Opt for a cut-out on open-toe bootie if you’re thinking it might be too hot for your usual go-to pair. If you’re hoping for a more exciting colour palette this spring, go for a coloured boot to brighten things up.
Here’s some street style stars who know how to keep their ankle boots alive all year round. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how well ankle boots team with shorter hemlines and looser silhouettes.
