How to wear ankle boots in summer
Gone are the days of only wearing summer sandals when the weather finally warms up because these days, an ultra-stylish pair of ankle boots can look brilliant even when worn with a light summer dress.
It takes a bit of careful style planning to get it right. Don’t just throw things together or you might just end up ruining what could have been a unique and great look.
Hardening Up a Ladylike Look
If you love wearing summery dresses but don’t like that little girl, ladylike look, then team your dress up with a pair of classy ankle boots – they will add a harder feel to the overall look.
Naturally, you need to think more “street dress” and less of that sun drenched “beach look” if you want to get it right. Lighter coloured suede booties are the perfect choice – stay away from darker colours as they will make your feet look too heavy.
Achieving that Oh So Casual Look
For that wonderful relaxed summer appeal, throw on a light pair of jeans – preferably cut-offs, pair them up with low or high heel ankle boots – celebrities and stars have made this their casual signature looks and they look brilliant.
Dressing Up Your Feet
When pairing up a pair of ankle boots with a lush outfit for a night out on the town – think sparkles, sequins and glitz. Seek out the brilliant glam designs which include booties with heels.
Shorts & Boots – That Rock Chick Look
Hot weather and shorts are a marriage made in heaven.Throw on a pair of ankle boots and choose heavier heels and boots with buckles to achieve that cool rock chick look that everyone adores – no matter what the weather’s doing!
A Little Bit of the French in You
The catwalks and runways were full of stripes and checks of every sort. Colours too were amazing and there was a definite French appeal that transfers well from catwalks to pavements. There’s nothing better than creating a French look for yourself and ankle boots add that perfect finishing touch.
It’s a look that gets a girl noticed for all the right reasons. Choose an ankle boot with a bit of a heel and one that just sits on your ankle so you don’t break the line of your leg.
Colour Combinations: Getting it Right
When it comes to choosing the right colour ankle boot to suit what you are wearing, this takes careful consideration. Lighter fabric, summer dresses look great when paired up with soft coloured, suede boots which boast lower heels.
For that rock chick appeal, then you need to go for chunkier, heavier looking boots in darker colours and which have buckles, studs and embellishments on them. For evening wear, ankle boots with sequins are glitzy and glam, go for the metallic look with high heels.
You may be worried about being too hot wearing ankle boots in the summer but there are so many choices of booties out there with great summer designs – including open toes. The other option if you wear ankle boots with zips is to leave them undone – a great look made famous by lots of celebs!
