Ankle boots are without a doubt a closet staple, but when the weather is warmer and hemlines are shorter, are they really still acceptable to keep wearing? The answer is undoubtedly yes—with a few guidelines, of course. While Kendall Jenner has frequently been wearing velvet ankle boots in the summer, not everyone is as open to the idea of wearing a cool-weather fabric on their feet while the asphalt is a solid 90+ degrees.
Our suggestion when it comes to finding ankle boots that are perfect year-round is to choose styles that are neutral in color and have heels that aren't too high—maybe you'll even get lucky enough to find a pair with lace inserts (like these Topshop ones) to allow for a little breeze down there. Boots that fall within those categories allow you to keep wearing your summer styles well into the winter, thus ensuring that you're getting the most out of your purchases. We've rounded up ankle boots that are everything you're looking for below.
