We’re patiently awaiting summer and all it has to offer: no makeup, a healthy diet of watermelon and natural wine, and the end-of-quarantine dream of being on the beach with, gasp, people. It’s natural to reach for sandals when the season hits, but we’ve found that a good pair of boots is an under-appreciated savior of the season. Take Frye, for example; their iconic, heavy-duty moto boots look killer with denim cutoffs and sundresses alike, but they can handle a festival better than flimsy lace-up sandals any day. Consider this my plea to give them the comeback they deserve. If those aren’t your vibe, click through for Isabel Marant’s blanket thigh-highs, which give western dressing a new spin, Bottega Veneta’s hotly-anticipated Chelsea boots (they’re selling out everywhere), and many more summer styles.
