The best solution would be a pair of summer boots – the so-called low-boots (with a peep toe or cut back, or no cuts at all), santiags boots (short and of western inspiration), reinterpreted motor boots (with side straps, lots of buckles, cuts or perforations). It is not mandatory for them to be made out of suede or with perforations, although these details make a pair of boots have the summer look. Still, they should be made out of natural leather, or canvas, but never made out of faux-leather, because they will make your feet sweat and have an unpleasant odour.
We can wear these boots with any summer pants, made out of materials that are more or less thin and fluid: pants with prints, coloured dock chinos, light jeans, or skinny white or blue jeans. We can add a loose shirt or comfy T-shirt, a casual scarf, a cotton coat, or denim jacket, or a thin leather jacket. Et voila! We have a perfect look for the summer.
The best part about summer boots is their versatility, being suitable to wear with almost any summer dress – made out of lace (giving them a boho-romantic note), and a cotton jersey, poplin, with tiny floral prints or dots. The dress can have any length (mini, midi or maxi). Summer boots give a fresh look to folded skirts or the ones with a cloche model, which, sometimes, can be way too retro. Thus, we can wear boots instead of flats or classic low heel shoes. We just need to add a short blazer and some accessories, and we are good to go.
We can also wear the boots with T-shirt dresses, short pants and overalls, minimalist short dresses… What are your favourite clothes for wearing with summer boots?
