Hey there, how’s your pedicure looking? If you’re anything like us, you’re a bit tired of looking at your toes peeking out of your summer sandals and you’ve already started thinking about fall shoes.
There’s no shame in that dreaming, as stores have started swapping out their hot weather merch for pieces that are more autumn appropriate. You’ll notice an uptick in lightweight jackets on the racks (especially bombers) and plenty of velvet trousers, too. Another item that has piqued our interest is a prevalence in creative ankle boots. Quite brilliantly, these are pieces that can be bought now and worn now, but still are deserving of a spot in your wardrobe well into the winter.
Think about it, a teeny denim shift dress will look great with a pair of lamé Maison Margiela booties, but come winter, will look just as good with black tights. Cutoff Levis will benefit from an elevated boot, à la Bella Thorne and her Dear Frances kicks, but so will a pair of Re/done jeans, once the temps drop. Should you need further convincing that it’s ok to wear booties when the temps are in the high 80s, just think about how buying a pair of boots now is an active form of smart planning and forward thinking. Go you!
