How-To: Style Booties
Posted on 04 September 2015
Ankle booties are without question an essential piece in every fall wardrobe. But a common misconception surrounding them is that they are confined solely to the cooler seasons. Well, that could not be further from the truth! What makes booties so great is that fact that they can transcend beyond fall wear into winter, spring and even summer if they are styled correctly! So how should you style them? Tucked into your jeans or out? Cuffed or uncuffed? Should they be colored, fringed or laced-up? Are they better in suede or leather? Read below to find out!
With Skinny/Boyfriend Jeans:
The easiest way to wear booties is with a pair of basic skinny jeans. They can be distressed or colored and range from a dark to light wash. You really can’t go wrong with skinnies, but why play it safe when there are so many other options?
With Cuffed & Un-Cuffed Jeans:
If you’re wearing boyfriend jeans, then you’re definitely going to want to roll up the hem to show off that ankle! Doing so helps accentuate the thinnest part of the leg, ensuring an overall flattering look. We love wearing colored booties during the fall with a fun fringe detail to make the bootie the focal point of the outfit!
A pair of faux leather leggings and faux leather booties are a match made in heaven in our book! Just make sure you wear a flowy blouse that’s long enough in back to conceal your derriere! Ain’t nobody got time to wear leggings as pants, girl!
Cut-off shorts with a crop top, flowy kimono and fringe booties were an essential summer festival look that is definitely here to stay! We love when there's a chunky heel on booties to up the amp so you can show off those defined caves!
We don’t discriminate when it comes to pairing booties with skirts! They can be midi, skater, A-line, leather, suede, fringed, etc. Play with your look and pair them with knee-highs or ankle socks to change it up! *Bonus* Doing so also leaves a little bit more to the imagination while simultaneously keeping warm during the chillier months!
We’re not going to lie, we saved the dress and booties combination for last because it’s our favorite! We love how simple it is to transition a garment usually reserved for a night out to day-wear just by switching out the shoes. It’s equally as easy to take your look from day to night by throwing on a pair of sleek booties with some black tights. Extra points if it’s paired with a LBD because a monochromatic ensemble is another sneaky slimming effect! Essentially, what we’re trying to say is you can wear booties with pretty much anything! So what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a pair and rock those booties everywhere!
