these boots were made for…warm weather?
Fashion knows not of comfort. It’s the reason why we wear 12-inch heels (after braving the cobblestone streets of London in stilettos, I realized we have it easy on the paved roads of the States) or get dressed up in high-waisted shorts and a pussybow blouse on days we’d rather stay in our sweats.
This summer, it’s about sweating it out in boots, boots, and more boots — and where better to draw inspiration from than Coachella?
This year’s music festival featured the classic Western boot that is seen from year to year, but also boasted studded boots, utilitarian lace-ups and ankle boot wedges. Beat the heat by pairing full-foot coverage with as little coverage as possible everywhere else, which is not always solid advice, so take advantage of it while you can. Think short denim shorts and vintage tanks or patterned spandex miniskirts with crop tops.
