Booties have shown their staying power over the past five years. This year they are getting a slight upgrade with fresh silhouettes and shades. If you don't have a fun pair and an everyday work horse, you may have a gap in your wardrobe! Read on for our favorite picks for the season by category.
The Day to Night Bootie
In San Francisco, the hills can finish a pair of heels in one evening. We love the idea of pairing a stylish block heel or wedge bootie with an outfit that will last all day long. A edgy detail like the Yente boots are a take on a more expensive Rag and Bone design this season. If you are a little more daring an animal print or pattern will add interest to an outfit.
The Everyday Bootie
Having a great bootie that you can rely on day in and out is an essential, and an upgrade from a flat. The key to finding the perfect bootie is durability, cut (look for styles that show more ankle for versatility and a slight heel or pointed toe to elongate your look), and color. A neutral shade in black or brown will easily flow with everything in your wardrobe.
The Office Bootie
Need to up your office shoe game? Explore a new addition to the bootie family this fall. We like the idea of adding a little perspective with a heel, just be sure to choose a height that you are comfortable with. The "shootie", ugh Kimberly cringes at the name, luckily looks more interesting than it sounds.
