4 Ways to Wear Boots Year-Round (You’re Welcome)

How to turn the winter staple into an all-season favorite

Everyone knows that boots are made for winter, right? Well, call me unconventional, but I’m a year-round fan of certain styles. Winter, spring, summer – you name the season and I’m wearing them. The best part? It’s a big money-saver when it comes to pedicures.

1. In the spring, throw on a pair of shorts and mid-calf boots. It’s a celebrity favorite in California, and there’s no reason you can’t pull it off in the Northeast, too. On top, always go for a loose shirt to balance out the look.

2. In the summer, toughen up ladylike sundresses with an unexpected suede bootie. Just make sure to pick a pair that hits no higher than the ankle to avoid overheating.

3. When the fall chill starts to set in, look to a fitted skirt and heeled boot. Remember: always allow a few inches between your hem and your boot.

4. In the winter (or rather, boot season), break out that miniskirt you always reserve for summer, add tights, and pull on a pair of flat over-the-knee boots. The key here is to skip a heel so you’ll look polished and appropriately pulled-together.
