Look, we get it. No matter how hot and humid the summer gets, there’s just something compelling about wearing boots on bare legs. So if you must laugh at the concept of seasonal dressing and bust out your velvet ankle boots early, here’s how. Just don’t complain when fall arrives.
Much like comfort and practicality, weather has never played much of a factor for Kim K’s fashion choices. Let her chill approach to wearing intricate lace-up boots that can double as tights be your guiding light.
Pro tip: Wait for the sun to go down and no one will ask why you’re wearing lace-up motorcycle booties to dinner. Right, Margot Robbie?
