When a room packed with women was asked, “Can you wear boots in summer?”, 70% said “No!”.
Most women think that boots are supposed to be worn only in cold days and that they´re off limits once it gets warmer. But seventy percent answered wrong.
According to many style experts, including myself, boots can actually be worn all year round. They are safe to wear even in summer and they can quickly update a look. In fact, wearing boots in summer will really make you look cool and edgy.
Of course you have to choose the right boots to wear in warm weather, preferably the lightweight boots. Needless to say, no ugg boots or thick winter boots if you don´t want your feet to suffer from shoe bites.
Here are some ways to wear boots in summer.
