Black is often a shade we reserve for our autumn and winter wardrobes, but we're here to show you that this need not be the case. 

If you're anything like us, you're willing the weather to cool down a little so you can pull on your favourite boots, or perhaps even purchase that new pair you have your eye on...

Well, we're here to give you the styling advice to help you do so that little bit sooner. It's quite simple really, put the focus on the materials you are wearing. Whilst you may consider black clothing and boots to be more insulating and therefore, too hot for the warmer months, this doesn't have to be true if you get the material right. Scroll to see more...

1. Kelston Black Suede

Kelston is a sleek heeled ankle boot which is sure to become your go-to. We particularly love this style for workwear due to its inherently smart and classic nature. Style with a lightweight wide-leg culotte and sleeveless blouse to stay cool. 


2. Kestrel Black Leather

If you're opting to pull on a knee-high, you can do so easily with these style tips. Kestrel is a go-to riding style boot that will see you through the end of summer and into autumn and winter. Style with a feminine pleated skirt which will keep you cool. A simple tee and light cardigan for the evenings top it off perfectly.


3. Loxton Black Leather

We couldn't talk about styling black without mentioning Loxton. Inspired by our popular knee-high Belmore, Loxton features a hidden platform and block heel to elevate both your height and your style! Pair with a throw-on dress in a lighter fabric for everyday-ease.

We hope you have been inspired or perhaps even reassured that black can work for summer! Be sure to tag us in your styling images over on our Instagram and use #myduoboots
