Fashion Q&A – Bye-Bye Boots, Hello Sandals

PicMonkey Collagevia // via

When the weather starts to turn warmer in mid-April, fashion items we’ve all had stored away for months—light jackets, long sleeve tops and tees, skirts, maxi dresses—get to come out and play. But, for many of us, getting to break out our sandal collection is the real thrill when temperatures starts to rise.

However, as much as you can justify wearing a maxi dress with a sweater on top, sandals are a different story— how early is too early and when is the right time to bare toes?

If it’s warm enough to comfortably go outside with bare legs, it’s warm enough to wear sandals. The keyword here is comfortably, for some that might be in the 60-degree range, and for other people that could mean temperatures in the 80s.

If you’re absolutely desperate to wear your flops, Memorial Day weekend works. Otherwise, hold out for the first day that hits mid-70s to 80 degrees—not the first day in April. Flats are also a great alternative if you feel it is a little too chilly to wear sandals when boots or booties are too heavy and warm.
