Look of the day: After-hours booties.



We don't usually associate ankle boots with summer dressing but thanks to fashionable ladies like Rashida Jones and Karlie Kloss, we're beginning to rethink the idea. A longtime signature of the model-off-duty wardrobe and a Balmain staple, the after-hours ankle boot is quickly gaining ground at both red carpet premieres and fancier fashion events. Lately I've been loving this look so much because the shoes offer a touch of toughness, which in turn gives dressed-up looks a cool edge you wouldn't otherwise get from a pair of pumps or sandals. A year-round essential that every girl should own now, the after-hours ankle boot is the subject of today's look!

No solemos asociar los botines con los looks de verano, pero gracias a las fashionistas como Rashida Jones y Karlie Kloss, estamos comenzando a repensar la idea. La firma Balmain y el look de las model-off-duty han hecho un elemento básico, el botín after-hours está ganando terreno rápidamente en la alfombra roja y eventos de moda más elegantes. Ultimamente me he enamorado de este look porque los zapatos dan un toque de rudeza, lo que a su vez da una vibra vanguardista a un look perfecto, cosa que de otro modo no podrías obtener de un par de tacones. Una pieza fundamental que toda niña debe tener en su armario es el tema del post de hoy, el botín after-hours.
