Is there anything in this world more puzzling than trying to put on an outfit in the morning that you won't completely regret come lunch? And no, we don't mean the white ones that you spill coffee down or the tight ones that make you a little light-headed. We mean the ones that saw the morning sunshine and gambled on an open-toe sandal only to be dodging puddles mere hours later.
Anyone else sick of this ever-changing weather?
But, thanks to the creative Gods that find themselves working behind the scenes at some of our favourite high-end and high street stores, there are sartorial solutions.
One of the very finest is the humble white boot.[ id="BX_TLI2gmbP"]
We're talking toe-coverage, ankle-shielding, and - more often than not - wipe clean (some puddles are muddy, okay?), but also light and bright enough aesthetically to feel fair-weather appropriate. Now *that's* a wardrobe staple.
Wave goodbye to your chunky trainers, Dad sandals are the new ugly shoe the fashion world can't get enough of
