How To Wear Ankle Boots this Summer
My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay
Just because winter is over doesn’t mean you can no longer wear your ankle boots! In fact, now may be the best time to transition them into your summer wardrobe. Ankle boots are great year-round staples that can be worn or styled with nearly everything from sundresses to shorts.
Style With a Sundress
One of the best parts about summer is the ability to wear more dresses during the day. Sundresses are the perfect partner to a pair of ankle boots. If your style could be described as bohemian or carefree consider investing in a pair of black distressed boots. These pair perfectly with a breezy floral maxi- or mini-dress. Alternately, if you prefer a more polished ensemble opt for a leather bootie in cognac or brown. These look great when paired with a fitted shirtdress or a skirt and blouse combination.
Style Them for Festival Season
If you plan on spending the summer weekend enjoying a music festival, ankle boots should be a staple in your attire. Since most music festivals take place in large fields, mud and dust and inevitable components, so a bootie is always a great option to wear. Boots with exposed sides or criss-cross straps make for a breathable fit, but also protect feet better than a pair of flip-flops or sandals.
Style Them With Shorts
When you think of shorts, ankle boots aren't an obvious choice. This style is synonymous with the bohemian style seen when boots are paired with denim cut offs. However, the style is certainly not just for 20-somethings. To take this style to a modern, yet not overly trendy outfit, choose a pair of colored or denim shorts cut at a moderate length. The boots don't necessarily need to be distressed but, they should hit just above the ankle.
Style with a Skirt
Ankle boots don’t always have to be flat! For a sophisticated and work-approved approach look for boots with a moderate-to-high heel in a black leather. There are various styles to choose from including peep-toes, pointed-toe, and much more. To elevate a traditional pencil skirt or fit-and-flare dress opt for traditional prints or solids.
