Finding the right time to wear ankle boots is much like Goldilocks trying to find her perfect porridge; summer is too hot, winter is too wet and, no prizes for guessing this, spring is just right. When Cadbury’s crème eggs tempt us at checkouts and our colleagues give up baked goods for lent these are the signs that it is the perfect time for a boot. Long appropriated as winter wear the ankle boot wasn’t designed to navigate puddles or the mucky pavements that plague the winter streets. Just think about the perfect tan, suede AMIRI boots – they’d be subject to ruination attempting to wear them before the worst of the rainy season is over.
Boots provide the perfect accoutrement to your distressed denim jacket, your smart leather bomber, or indeed, any jacket you wish to wear. Now that it is finally too mild for the heaviest of winter coats pairing a jacket with boots is a welcomed outfit change, after months of wondering when you can wear something a little lighter.
Whatever your style; whether it be indie AMIRI, classic Church’s or the perfect suede Saint Laurent we hope you’ll take this as your cue to make the much-needed shift into something more ‘spring’.
