How To Wear Ankle Boots During Summer

Urban, sophisticated and modern, an ankle boot offers many cachets. Trade in your traditional footwear for summer and opt for a disparate approach to this season's dressing. A multitude of designers showed the shoe style during their SS17 presentations, such as 3.1. Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang.

Free your spirit while pairing ankle boots with a romantic maxi dress in a sheer fabric to create a bohemian aura. Colour coordinate the footwear with the ensemble and accessories for a clean, classic feel or add a layer to the look with contrasting shades or bright tones such as metallic, gold or white. Whatever way you decide to style it, the ankle boot will be your companion for a light, amorous summer. Yet, you can put on this shoe throughout the year due its seasonal transcendence and wearability. 


To accord more edge to your ensemble, combine the ankle boot with shorts or a mini-skirt. The boot can either be a lace-up, cowboy-inspired pair or an all-black version. The texture of choice is leather when embracing this bold look since it scores high on the rock ‘n roll attitude. Favour a blocked heel to gain height and boost your femininity, all while keeping your sophistication sharp by sporting a classically shaped bag or an elegant top without cleavage. 


Opt for a statement ankle boot to achieve colossal impact this season. Whether it is an outstanding embroidered work of art or a vibrant shade that pops, this summer your footwear will take centre stage. You can go full-on maximalism by dressing up in a divergent hue or let your shoes do the talking and keep the rest of your outfit restricted to refined basics. Either way, this style can easily be taken from the office to a dinner date due to its versatility and empowering feel.
