Sole Mates: How to Wear the Spring Boot

Our new footwear feature puts the spotlight on distinctive silhouettes from the brands we love with tips on outfit pairings, too. This week, Italian-crafted boots that make a stylish statement year-round.

Whether you are a minimalist or maximalist, there’s no denying that a statement boot works well as both a mood lifter and an outfit enhancer. Even when momentarily, we’re all dressed up with only the couch as a place to go, exceptional shoes are what keeps any fashion lover inspired, moving, and dreaming of future plans.

There’s no time like the present to master styling the perfect transition piece: the spring boot. And as we move towards a more seasonless approach to dressing, the notion that closed-toe boots are only for fall/winter occasions, no longer applies. Instead, heeled boots—whether in a sleek white or classic neutral—versatilely lift up warm-weather staples and can be worn as an alternative to a sandal. Particularly the airy mesh-like material on our exclusive Casadei boot pairs well with floaty floral dresses or miniskirts and is an excellent opportunity to highlight the legs. After all, one of Olivia’s essential styling tricks is the juxtaposition of feminine silhouettes with edgy accessories, and these lace-up boots are guaranteed to ground any strong, spring look.

When putting together your next outfit, take a page from Casadei’s fashion rule book. “Each day we all have an opportunity to transform ourselves, which can be as simple as applying a different lipstick or swapping shoes. You can choose the perfect shoe according to your daily mood, and this gives our wearer a reason to feel empowered,” says the brand’s Creative Director Cesare Casadei. "Designing women's shoes puts us in a unique position—to make something special that will make you dream.”
