You’d be forgiven for thinking that boots were a winter thing. Chunky, studded hikers or clumpy, shearling bikers, in June? No thanks. But there are now plenty of styles to get you through the milder months, and we know just how you’ll be wearing them.
It might be June but it hasn’t reached boiling point quite yet. Our go-to look for this, often temperamental, transitional weather? Distressed jeans, deconstructed shirting and, of course, a fresh white boot. Having spent years strutting down the Las Vegas strip, the latter is now a wardrobe essential, thanks to the likes of Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini and Balenciaga SS17. Opt for our ‘Ringo’ ankle boots and pair them with cropped, frayed denim to show off the super slick silver ankle buckle.
Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking” drawled the ever-wry Miranda Priestly. Well, groundbreaking the ‘Rilly' boot may not be, but top of everyone’s wish list for chic summer ankle boots? Hell yeah! Now, how to wear her. Clashing prints were everywhere this season, from Miu Miu’s not-so-synchronised swimmers to Christopher Kane’s leopard on lurex, so we vote you team these with a ditsy, gingham dress come July. Think picnic basket-chic!
Or perhaps you’re keen to unleash your inner animal? Sport our ‘Dare’ snakeskin numbers with an on-trend pair of culottes and a shrunken denim jacket. By night, wear them bare legged, with a loose-fitting LBD and beaten up biker jacket. Oh, and for any festival-hoppers amongst you, these are a perfect pairing for those obligatory denim cut-offs you’ll be living in from Glasto onwards…
