There are so many glorious booties on offer this fall and I want to buy every pair I see. My bank account keeps that impulse in check, though, so I choose my booties for maximum wearability – i.e. I get them in neutral colors and in styles I can easily wear all day without the aid of painkillers. But, as my pal Melissa recently asked, how do you wear booties?
I sometimes wear mine with jeans or slacks but they obscure the bootie fabulousness, so I prefer to wear them with skirts or dresses. Today, I’m wearing my black, zippered Vince Camuto booties from last year with a denim skirt from Banana Republic.
Just like last week with my cropped trousers, make sure the height of the booties on your legs and the length of the skirt work together. By the way, this is one of those times when having a full-length mirror at home really comes in handy. These booties are low-profile so I’ve got more leeway with my skirt length than if the booties extended above my ankles.
With my gray wool bolero jacket, grommet belt and black leather and chrome skull watch (yeah, that’s right – a skull watch), I’ve almost got a rock chick vibe. Almost.
How will you wear your booties?
