By this time every year, most of us are completely over our summer wardrobes. With the heat of August still in full swing, however, it really doesn’t make sense to pull out the fall styles either. Transitional styles are key in these situations. One of this year’s best transitional pieces is the cutout ankle bootie. The open spaces not only make them look edgy and cool, they also make them feel cool since air can actually circulate. Wear them with casual dresses and shorts now, then wear them right on into fall with a great sweater and jeans.
