This story is from our partner, FabSugar! Twice a month we’ll share FabSugar’s best fashion tips and shopping guides. Today’s post shows you how seasonal ankle boots can be written by Brittney Stephens of FabSugar:
Trying to figure out how to transition your warm-weather pieces for Fall is a weighty issue – and replacing your sandals in favor of socks and boots can often be a near-tragedy. Luckily, there are a number of ways to start incorporating your beloved ankle boots into late-Summer looks and making them pull double-duty for the seasonal shift. We’ve helped you out by taking three pairs of chic ankle boots and showing how seasonless they can be. Click through to see and shop six looks that work stylishly for late Summer to Fall.
The Suede Stacked-Heel Booties…
You should definitely have a pair of tan suede booties in your shoe arsenal – they really do go with everything, plus the slight stacked heel gives you the perfect amount of height. We’re especially in love with Madewell’s Suede Zipcode Boot ($198). Wear them now with colorful cutoffs and a gauzy peasant blouse, then later with a bright sweater and nude chiffon skirt cinched with a thick brown belt.
Velvet Duran Embroidered Tunic ($182), Rag & Bone Jean Mila Cutoff Twill Shorts ($155), Isabel Marant Joplin Gold-Tone Necklace ($85)
Giambattista Valli Fine-Knit Sweater ($228, originally $650), Linea Pelle Wide, Stretch Belt ($62), See by ChloÃ© Almond Swing Skirt ($455, originally $650)
The Slouchy Bohemian Booties…
We love roughing up a girlie dress with a pair of slouchy suede boots. Take it back to the Summer of Love with these Isabel Marant Jenny Boots ($565), which are easy to slip on and look great with jeans and dresses alike. For right now, you can wear them with a soft peach dress layered with a hipster-cool denim vest, then switch them up for Fall with a long-sleeved floral dress and Janis Joplin-esque floppy hat.
Illesteva Leonard 2 Sunglasses ($260), A.P.C. Silk Boatneck Dress ($355), Topshop Moto Sleeveless Denim Jacket ($76)
Forever 21 Chain Floppy Hat ($20), Paul & Joe Floral-Print Silk Dress ($380), Rebecca Minkoff Polka Dot Quilted Flirty Bag ($250)
The Motorcycle Booties…
These Chloe Studded Leather Ankle Boots ($1,290) may be a serious splurge, but they’ll more than pull their weight throughout each season. For the rest of the Summer, you can use them to toughen up a slinky romper and leopard-print scarf; then come the cooler weather, pair them with skinny black jeans, a floaty printed button-down, and a cool contrast-sleeve coat for a burst of edgy glam.
Thakoon Addition Silk Playsuit ($550), Mango Touch Leather Bucket Bag ($110), Aeropostale Leopard Infinity Scarf ($12, originally $25)
Tibi Contrast-Sleeve Wool-Blend Jacket ($600), Gorjana Hadley Double Layer Necklace ($105), R13 Black Skinny Jean ($325), Equipment Printed Silk-Chiffon Shirt ($210)
