Boots in the summer?

Is wearing boots in the summer considered a fashion faux pas? I have these gorgeous black suede knee high boots that I can't bear not being able to wear until Fall. Would it look tacky if I wore them at nights with jeans tucked in and a tank?

I wouldn't wear any type of pants tucked into boots. Not a good look in my opinion. Jeans rolled up to about mid calf, maybe. Or worn completely over the boots so only the toe and heel show. That's pretty much the only way I wear boots anyway.

I don't see a problem with wearing the tank but I would recommend against tucking jeans into your boots. I think the look would work great if you wear your jeans long so they fall down covering most of your boot so just a little of your heel shows.

Take Care,

Knee high boots would look great with a short jean skirt or any skirt for that matter and would still be cool for the summer.

I understand your impatience to wait til fall - I was like that when I got my fave pair of knee high boots.

I personally don't like pants tucked into boots - maybe cuz I'm only 5'4" & it makes me legs look even shorter.

I totally agree with SuzieQ. Why wear jeans to cover up those great boots? Boots in summer are very sexy; wear them with a mini. If the mini is leather, you'll really be sending a message!
