Unless you live in the tropics, sandals will always be reserved for the spring and summer. Boots used to own the rest of the year as the optimal cold weather footwear. But now, they have surpassed the fall and winter months. Thanks to a few new trends, they’re now a year-round choice for fashionistas everywhere looking for “it” styles.
Take a look at a few of these boot trends that you can keep in your closet year-round.
Peep Toe Boots
Who says you have to bury your toes in a pair of boots? Instead, show off that expensive pedicure with a style that highlights your pretty piggies. Peep-toe booties are a fun and flirty way to add interest to an ankle or mid-calf design. If you want to keep them casual, they easily complement a pair of shorts or skinny jeans. For an idea on how to dress up your peep-toe boots, check out “Scream Queens” star Emma Roberts’ outfit from the holidays. She sported a lace-up variety with a sparkling sleeveless turtle-neck dress, proving just how versatile the style can be no matter the weather.
Wedge Ankle Booties
In the winter, these cozy booties will keep you warm with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings. But a quick change into a skirt or a pair of shorts makes them look amazing in the spring and summer. Jennifer Garner recently wore a black suede pair, exemplifying an easy way to pull off a classic and comfy look. With her skinny jeans and long sleeve plaid shirt peeping out underneath a grey sweater, she looked ready for a day out shopping or lunch with friends.
A classic leather biker boot is great any time of the year. Usually, they look best with pants or shorts, but you can try paring them with a flowing skirt if you’re brave. A skirt gives a nice feminine contrast to the boot’s otherwise masculine design. Check out the these photos of different styles for inspiration. The majority of styles are leather or faux leather, and they’re almost always solid black. When picking a pair for yourself, keep in mind that the more metal accents the boot has (zippers, buckles, chains), the edgier the look. Choose your style accordingly.
Don’t limit your boots to the cold weather months. Incorporate them into your outfits every season this year for a new twist on some old staples!
