Side by Side: Peep show (as in… toes & ankles)
Show a little skin this spring with ankle and toe peeps.
There’s no feeling quite like shedding layers after a long winter. After what seems like an eternity of chunky knit sweaters on turtlenecks on fuzzy socks on waterproof boots, it’s finally time to bust out of our winter layers prison. But with spring being one of the most unpredictable times of the year, it’s nice to take this transition a little slow, easing in to the season without going full-on spaghetti-strap sundress and sandals. A few key transitional pieces keeping in your go-to subdued winter color palette will safeguard you from any suddenly-spring shellshock.
For the ultimate in warmish-weather fashion inspiration, look no further than your favorite Hollywood starlets. LA is the land of perpetually dece weather, which means these girls are always free to flaunt the in-between-season styles, and booties with that show a little skin are the ultimate way to tell spring that you’ve arrived. Recently spotted on the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Blake Lively and Kate Bosworth, these peep-toes are the perfect options to pair with culottes, a notoriously tricky pant to style but one that looks as great at the office as at after-work drinks.
For another take on the revealing trend, one with a little more edge (think: Kylie Jenner always), a cut-out bootie with lace-up side ankle detailing adds instant visual interest to your look. The wintery silhouette pairs perfectly with bare legs and a knee length pencil skirt, a warm welcome that’ll have you dreaming about your summer tan.
