Styling booties 101
Perfecting your footwear during winter is no easy feat. But sometimes there are shoes that seemingly go with just about everything. In this case, it’s the bootie. Here is what you need to know about styling your fashion booties:
A complementary dress
It doesn’t matter what season it is, dresses are always a good choice. For one, they’re incredibly versatile. You could sport a glittery cocktail dress at a holiday party or a professional frock for the office. They’re sophisticated and stylish. However, the shoes part is where it can get tricky. If you’re wearing a dress, most of legs are exposed, even if you have tights on. No matter the length of your dress, you’re going to want a pair of shoes that give you some height to elongate the look of your legs. Heels can be great, but the lack of traction on a pair of pumps during the winter is a recipe for disaster. Instead, opt for a bootie. These shoes will cover your entire foot so you don’t have to worry about showcasing your tights. In addition, the support around your ankle will make it easy to strut with confidence wherever you have to go.
A classic pair of blue jeans
The right denim is a staple in every woman’s closet. A great pair of jeans can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the occasion. There aren’t many rules to styling women’s jeans, but some ladies have trouble choosing the perfect pair of shoes. That’s where booties come in. They’re the perfect shoe to wear with any style of jean, from boot cut to skinny to flare. This pairing creates a continuous vertical line from hip to toe.
In addition, some women choose to fold or cuff the bottom of their jeans to show off a little bit of their ankle. This works best with a bootie that is rounded at the top, which is flattering on any body type. A pair of booties will add that extra something to your casual jean look while keeping it comfortable and relaxed.
A monochromatic outfit
Like most shoes, booties can come in a wide selection of colors and styles. They can be black with a velvet fabric or bright patent red. If you want to choose a bold color, try pairing your booties with a monochromatic outfit like all black or gray. That way, it will draw attention to your feet, and your shoes will pop!
A sophisticated pencil skirt
Pencil skirts are another must-have item of clothing for most women. These skirts can hug the body in all the right places to create a flattering silhouette. But what most women might not know is that this look goes great with a pair of booties. A neutral-colored ankle boot pairs nicely with a fitted skirt. A brown, tan or suede shade can make the leg appear longer and the outfit balanced.
