While there’s no denying that summer equals sandal season, you don’t have to sport them 24/7. Believe it or not, you can actually wear boots once the heat is on without looking out of place. But there are some tricks to the trade.
First, embrace cut-outs. A little ventilation goes a long way. (Perforated booties also work wonders.) When it comes to colors, white boots are summer staples, but don’t be afraid to go darker. Navy and black pairs can really take things up a notch, even when you’re wearing the frilliest of summer dresses.
Basically, your go-to winter boots won’t cut it. Check out the slideshow below for some season-appropriate picks and tips on how to style them right.
