We love breaking fashion rules! Especially the one that says you can’t wear boots in the spring. Throw out everything you thought you knew about footwear and weather, because the right pair of booties can take you through both winter and spring. You just have to know how to wear them. Here are some tips to take your go-to booties and transform them from winter staples to versatile must-haves for spring.
Black and Bold
Black wardrobe pieces go with winter like chocolate and Valentine’s Day. A pair of the Carlos Santana Brie booties in black with a silver side zipper will make getting dressed in January—or April—fast and fashionable.
When it’s still cold out, slip them on with a pair of distressed jeans. Add a rich jewel-toned blouse and a wool coat, and you have a sleek ensemble for the office or weekend errands.
Transform those same black booties into an edgy, spring-inspired look by wearing a floral or colorfully patterned dress with a structured trench coat. The contrast between dark and light gives your legs length and visual interest.
Trendy and Tan
Spring means fresh air and maybe even a walk around the park. The Rock & Candy Spraypaint booties, in tan with a floral lace cuff and a low heel, give you walking comfort with a little bohemian style.
Show off the detailed cuffs of these booties with a pair of dark leggings in the colder months. Top off this casual winter-inspired look with a long tunic in a rich burgundy. And don’t forget to accessorize with cozy, cute accents!
Quickly transform these decorative tan booties into feminine spring fashion by swapping out your heavier tunic for a light cotton dress in cream or blush hues. Add a leather jacket for a bit of an edge.
Tall and Taupe
No matter the season, there always seems to be a cocktail hour, work event or meeting where you need to look pulled together. The Fergalicious Punch stacked heel bootie in taupe gives you versatility in any environment or season.
Give casual Friday a boost in the colder months with a pair of dark skinny jeans, a cream blouse and fitted blazer combined with these booties—you’ll be out the door in seconds.
Layer On, Layer Off
The key to dressing for shifting temperatures is remembering to wear the right layers. Stay warm in spring dresses and blouses with voluminous scarves, light jackets, cardigans and tights. Once the temps warm up, swap out those heavy-duty layering items with lighter, brighter accessories for versatile looks you can wear all season long!
