    Ankle boots

    The shorter your boots are, the easier they are to wear with cutoffs or a skirt. Match them with accents in your accessories, and choose bright, fun colors and prints, especially florals, to make the look seasonal.

    Cowboy boots

    Western-inspired footwear is so fun for the summer. They look best with dresses, especially hi-lo hemmed dresses like the one pictured. Toss on bold colors to show off the playfulness of the look, but try to avoid denim, or you’ll look a little too much like a real cowgirl—unless that’s what you’re going for!

Remember, don’t throw your boots to the back of your closet just because the temperature is rising. Cute boots can be an unexpected and cool way to bring some fierceness to your summer look.
