We Know It's 28 Degrees Out, But It's Worth Buying a Pair of These Boots Now

Last year, postbox-red boots became the season's surprise standout shoe style, and this autumn, the trend is set to continue. We know that it's only August and boot shopping might sound a little, well, sweaty, but hear us out: This is when you can get first dibs on the new season pieces, and so it's actually not such a ridiculous idea to go boot shopping.

We'd forgive you for thinking that red ankle boots are a little tacky and totally impractical, but they are more versatile than you might think. The likes of Camille Charrière, María Bernad and Lucy Williams have all been wearing their scarlet, cherry or burgundy boots on loop for the past 12 months, proving they are not only a fun pick-me-up accessory but also a wise—and surprisingly reusable—investment. Currently, the Chloé lace-up leather boots in deep cherry are top of our new-season wish lists. Scroll through the gallery below to see how the super-blogger set style red ankle boots in all seasons, and then shop our edit of the best around.
