Booties for fall are as common these days as florals for spring these days. One might wonder, how do you take a wardrobe staple like booties and keep it trendy and unexpected season after season? Below you’ll find some rock-solid tips on how to wear fall booties and keep them exciting.
take a cue from another accessory
We are accustomed to seeing great details in another favorite accessory of ours… the handbag. Grommets, fringe, and tassels always grab our attention when they adorn a great bag, so why not apply that idea to your feet? Booties have become another platform to show off some luxe details. Crushed velvets and vibrant embroidery are an effortless way to throw a bit of unexpected into your look.
the new normal
When it comes to fashion, rules are made to be broken. It’s very often that we find some of our most inspired looks are when we go completely against our first impulse and go for something untraditional, right? Typically, we see booties paired with a good pair of jeans. But these days booties can work back to just about anything. A fantastic way of taking a dress or skirt to a more casual look is to pair them with a sharp-looking bootie.
You can also do the reverse, throw on a great heeled bootie to ramp up a casual look and create a sexy rocker vibe.
reach new lengths
One tricky area when it comes to booties is the appropriate hem length to wear with which type of shoe. Heeled booties can work with several different silhouettes. Casual pieces (i.e. longer skirts, slouchier boyfriend jeans, flowy dresses), can appear more elevated when paired with a heeled bootie. To achieve chic results with shorter hem lengths, add hosiery to keep you warm and accentuate your great “bootie”.
Flat booties have more of an impact when you can show off the details. Work flatter booties with a crop skinny jean or a midi length dress or skirt.
