Shopping Your Closet: Boots

When summer rolls around, boots get shoved to the back of the closet along with heavy coats, sweaters, and scarves. But who these days can afford to buy a wardrobe for each season? And who wants to give up wearing the fabulousness that is a hot pair of boots for nearly half of the year?

Well, you don’t have to! Boots can totally be rocked in the summer if you do it right.

Do like Kate Moss and pair boots with denim shorts in the summer, or rock them with a dress for a new look. When Fall rolls around, switch into skinny jeans or leggings. Voila – year-round fashion.

Here are some ideas for wearing those boots right now:

1. Tank top + shorts.
Add some edge to your go-to summer look with boots.

2. With a feminine dress.
Boots add a masculine touch to any floral or flowy dress. Slouchy, brown styles complete a cowgirl or boho-chic outfit, but any boots can work.
