Boots are a staple item in most women’s wardrobe. Boots can be used to dress up or dress down an outfit and if money is scarce, you can easily pick up a cheap pair of boots from a discount store. A lot of people assume that boots are a winter garment that has no place in their summer wardrobe. But they are wrong!

Boots can be worn whatever the weather and as long as you pick the right style, you can easily wear boots all through the summer. So what are the best summer styles and what are the celebrities wearing this year?

Cowboy Boots

Cowboy boots look fabulous when worn in the summer time. Pull on a pair of sexy Daisy Dukes and a plain white tee, throw on some Corral vintage boots and accessorize with a cowboy hat. This type of outfit can be worn anywhere, but it looks especially good at festivals. So why not book tickets to Coachella and pack your cowboy boots?

Gladiator Boots

Lace-up gladiator boots have become enormously popular in recent years. A lot of celebrities are regularly photographed in sexy gladiator boots – the Kardashian sisters love wearing sexy gladiator boots and are often photographed with a pair of designer gladiator boots adorning their pins. This type of boot looks good with most outfits. You can wear gladiator boots with shorts or a hippy chick dress on a hot summer’s day, or if you need to vamp up a little black dress for a night out on the town, pull on a pair of black gladiator lace-up boots.

Thigh High Boots

Thigh high boots are the ultimate in sex appeal. They don’t suit everyone but if you are blessed with slim, lithe legs that go on forever and ever, you can easily get away with wearing sexy over the knee boots. The best styles to look for are those with a dangerously high stiletto heel. You should also look for lace-up over the knee boots. Kim Kardashian has a favorite pair she is regular photographed wearing; her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, has also been photographed wearing the same pair of boots, which she presumably ‘borrowed’ from Kim’s wardrobe. God bless little sisters!

Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are extremely versatile and are perfect for summer wear. You can wear sexy little ankle boots with a dress, shorts or trousers. If the weather is warm, wear a sexy little slip dress and team it with cute ankle boots. Or, if you want to rock a pair of denim cut-off shorts, ditch the sandals and find a pair of vintage lace up work boots for an industrial vibe.

Designer or Second-Hand

Designer boots tend to be rather expensive, but it is possible to pick up used designer boots online if you check out websites such as eBay or Gumtree. Alternatively, stick to discount stores and keep up with the latest fashions.

Don’t pack your boots away when summer comes: you can wear boots all year long if you pick the right outfit!
