Just because it’s warming up outside doesn’t mean you need to pack away all your boots along with the rest of your winter clothes. In fact, you can wear ankle boots in summer, and it’s actually an incredibly chic look. Because let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t have time to get a pedicure, and sometimes you need a little extra coverage for your feet and require something sturdier than flats and a bit less casual than sneakers. The trick to transitioning your favorite ankle boots into summer is to just remove the tights, and you’re basically good to go. They really work with anything, from denim shorts to dresses and skirts. You can even pair them with jeans if you opt for a summery shirt or tank on top.
Concerts and music festivals are the perfect excuse to wear ankle boots in summer. They’ll keep your feet protected from all the gross stuff on the ground, you can stand in them for hours (just stick to a flat or block heel), and they’re guaranteed to look cute with your festival and concert attire. I also love an ankle boot with denim cutoffs and a tee for a casual warm weather look that’s perfect for running after the kids or a weekend at the farm. Ankle booties and a dress are the perfect combo for a summer weekend in the city. I also love the look of ankle boots with a mini skirt for a night out, or try it with a midi dress or skirt for the office.
