Boots? For summer? Groundbreaking. For real. Stars are flipping the footwear script this season, putting sandals on hold for a pair of sock-like ankle booties that make them look effortlessly cool, even if their feet are sweating! (Because, Fashion > Function.)

Why It Works 365: The boots look just as cute with jeans and a duster as they do with a mini skirt. Plus, white shoes always make you look more tan.

How the Stars are Wearing It: Whether you’re an influencer, reality star or supermodel, there is no city street dirty enough to stop you from wearing white boots. This Stuart Weitzman style has become the go-to for Bella Hadid, Lily Rose-Depp, Adriana Lima and Kourtney Kardashian because it’s not only versatile for those many wardrobe changes they pull in one day, but it also has a thicker heel making for a pain-free experience. (Who cares if you have to carry a Tide stain remover pen in your purse.)

Kendall has also been rocking the sock bootie style, opting for the “Clingy” boot, also by Stuart Weitzman, which boasts a more modest kitten heel and appears to be impervious to grass stains.
