You’ve probably seen booties worn on your friends or may have some of these stylish shoes in your closets, but how do you wear them so they look good on you? These tips have the answers to your latest fashion problems. Booties are some of the most versatile footwear you’ll have and you can wear them for all sorts of occasions, from work to a hot date.
Booties are Wearable No Matter the Occasion
If you’re the type of stylist that thinks boots can only happen in the winter, think again! Booties provide the perfect solution no matter the weather. They’re perfect because of the season to season availability; not to mention the fact that booties are the most versatile shoe out there. You can match them beautifully with jeans, leggings, tights, dresses, skirts, or shorts. The possibilities are endless.
To Cuff or Not To Cuff
Ok, so we’ve shown you the versatility of the booties, but how do you make them look good? Depending upon your attire, you should always ask this important question when wearing jeans: Should I cuff or should I tuck? If you’re wearing slouchy, super skinny, or cinched pants, you should definitely go for the tucking. However, if you have decided on skinny or straight denim, you surely have to opt for the cuff.
Picking the Right Type of Bootie
An outfit is never complete without a superb shoe to finish it off. Here’s a few pointers on the foolproof shoe to cap off your next outfit:
Lace up booties:
These style of boots are one of the most common with laces to tighten if you’re wearing them bare or loosen if you want to tuck in jeans or wear socks.
Cut out booties:
Select a bootie with specially designed cut outs when you want to reveal all the pretty details your booties have to offer. You’ve already got plenty of style with a perforated bootie, but try on a patterned sock to go with it, such as stripes or polka dots. Now you now have a look that is uniquely your own.
Peep toe booties:
Similar to peep-toe heels, these booties show a little skin when you want to.
All Weather booties:
To wear booties all year round, choose an all weather bootie like duck boots. These are usually made of waterproof material and a cute way to dress up your attire on a rainy day.
