You don’t have to break the bank for booties this spring. While we may not be able to wave goodbye to winter for good just yet, transitional footwear is the perfect between-seasons look for March.
Skip the snow and slush (especially if you’re a city dweller), and step straight into next season now with FN’s pick of the best boots to buy under $200. You don’t need to splurge on your in-between shoes thanks to ankle options from Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, Jeffrey Campbell and more that are available now. Start wearing your warmer wardrobe with the right footwear to hold you over.
How to Wear It:
1. Cropped jeans: The days of flood pants are through now that cropped denim is a thing. Whether you prefer slouchy boyfriend styles or pin-straight skinnies, cuff a pair of ankle boots to wear under them and you’re set for almost-spring weather.
2. Dress it down: Pick your favorite lightweight summer style and make it feel a bit more model-off-duty with the right pair of booties — and a strategically placed leather jacket.

3. Surprise statement: Take a tip from the latest awards season and opt for a maxi skirt with a revealing slit to show off your favorite shooties.
Whatever look you like for the end of winter, make it work into spring with one of the boots in our gallery.
