Every morning on my way to the office, I read as much as I can about fashion-related news and events (naturally), and I opened my email to the MATCHESFASHION.COM newsletter and was struck by a gorgeous pair of leopard Gianvito Rossi ankle boots. The caption under these boots read, “Ankle boots are a year-round style staple,” and that quickly got me thinking: Is that true? Are ankle boots really an all year-round shoe?
Ankle boots are definitely a versatile option worth investing in because they’re a great choice for that pesky in-between weather. When you use the term year-round, though, we have to consider those hot and humid summer days (and living in NYC, we unfortunately have a lot of those), and that’s where things get tricky. The thought of putting my feet into even the shortest of ankle boots in July makes me want to break a sweat. As soon as the warmer weather comes and the sun is shining, I want to show off my new pedicure and show some skin and ditch my boots altogether in exchange for some great sandals and slides. If you’re in favor of boots year-round, I suggest trying a pair of cutout ankle booties; they’re a bit more lightweight
But if ankle boots are your year-round staple, may we suggest trying this summer these Saint Laurent Rock Double-Buckle Leather Ankle Boots, available through MATCHESFASHION .COM for $1,112.
