Do you wear short boots in summer?
A long summer does not necessarily mean boots are out of the question, especially bootie style.
I like the contradiction between the flimsy and lightweight and the solid, more covered. When I saw these beautiful photographs of outback Australia, short boots and flowing dresses seem like the ideal companions.
Short boots have become one of my all season wardrobe essentials and a staple to wear any day and every day. Boots don’t need to be relegated to the back of the cupboard on hot days. A little creative thinking, a wardrobe adjustment and they can work beautifully with summer fashion.
As long as they are cute and of a short style they can look wonderful with the right trousers or a fabulous dress.
I don’t know when it became ok to wear boots in the summertime; I don’t remember it being the case when I was younger. Today I see short boots worn everyday with all types of fashion. Fashion, when it is flexible, is how we can find our signatures and dress not only for comfort but also in a way that suits our taste. I like to wear my booties most with a dress or fuller skirt.
I love short boots in the summer worn with shorts but that look is one I will admire from a distance rather than replicate. I wish I could but shorts and I are old friends who share memories not new history.
The other great feature of the short boot is they make the perfect travel companions. The ZEPHYR from Stuart Weitzman is my go-to bootie, not only for the French country weekend but for city breaks also. There is another style, the BACARI which I am tempted to test; the suede pair in slate has my name all over it.
How great would these look with just about everything?
Travel is unpredictable and as much as a holiday sandal or a strappy flat makes sense, a short boot can come in mighty handy. Some days the toes just want to stay inside.
I like a small heel and slightly chunky with my short boots, especially if I am wearing them with a skirt or dress. Not spike thin or a huge block, but somewhere in-between. I like a flat style also, a little like a riding boot especially with a straighter skirt.
What I like most of all is that fashion has become versatile. We can wear what we want, how we want and when we want.
Short boots in the summer? Absolutely. xv
