Take a tip from Vanessa Paradis: Wear boots year-round!

See also

Vanessa Paradis--the French model, actress and singer arguably best known in the US for her relationship with actor Johnny Depp--has been spotted sporting her gray 80%20 booties year-round. Paired with skinny jeans, the look is a go-to staple for those mornings when you simply have "nothing" to wear. The neutral color keeps it from being too "seasonal," the hidden wedge gives height without looking too obvious while keeping the shoe low enough to be comfortable for walking, and the fringe adds an interesting detail to keep the style from looking too boring.

Low booties like these are a comfortable alternative to sneakers or flip-flops (although they're not ideal for heat waves, for sure). Booties can be a great way to rock a summer dress in the office--they'll keep your feet warm in the excessive air conditioning! Pair them with leggings, rock them with shorts or a skirt, or just throw them on with your favorite jeans. Although 80%20 likely won't bring back this style, the Dani Fringe boot, until the fall, there are still deals to be had out there. (Try DSW's clearance section for some great prices on current styles.)
