Buckled Up

Give your summer booties some personality with metal buckles. They’re a great way to add visual interest without distracting from your overall look. When it comes to this classic trend, you’ve got a lot of options to choose from. Pick between one big, shiny buckle or multiple smaller buckles stacked along the side. Some women’s booties have fashionable buckles made just for show, while others feature functional buckles that allow you fine-tune your fit – which is especially helpful if you have narrow or wide feet. Whatever style you choose, this fashion trend is a tried-and-true way to take a simple pair of ankle boots to the next level.
