As we’ve seen, the question of how to wear your winter clothes in the springtime can be a tough nut to crack. With clothing, it seems simple enough—combining winter staples like sweaters and jackets with spring-friendly prints and colors. With shoes, it’s a whole different story. Are you supposed to abandon your boots the second spring starts in favor of warm-weather favorites like ballet flats and sandals, even if the weather isn’t that warm? In a word, no.
That’s why booties are pretty much the perfect solution. Unlike their knee-high, fur-lined, snow-ready cousins, booties take up relatively little real estate on your body, making them more apt to work as part of a warm-weather ensemble. And when you also factor in that booties can also be open-toed, it’s a double-whammy of sartorial, spring savvy.
