Unless you've been stuck in a cave with no access to the Internet, magazines, or TV, you know that some of the most popular shoes for fall and winter are booties. I have totally jumped on this trend because these shoes are completely versatile and quite comfortable! This shoe is perfect for that transition from desk to date night because there are such a variety of styles that can work with almost any occasion.
First, let's talk style. When you start your search for the perfect bootie, you need to keep your lifestyle in mind. Do you work a full-time job that requires a lot of walking? Do you like to go out on the weekends? Or maybe you're a student that still does a lot of walking but you would like a more casual look. Never fear! There are booties out there for all these occasions and more.
If you're leaning more toward the first category and needing a more work-appropriate bootie to take from day to night, I would opt for a black leather bootie with a chunkier heel. The key is the thicker heel; it'll be more comfortable to walk in all day. The pair that Sara Lynn from Love by Lynn is wearing are absolutely perfect for work-to-date booties. They are sleek and professional with just the right amount of edge.
Another option are the booties Meg from Styled Avenue is wearing. These booties are extremely playful and would be an ideal shoe for a casual night out with friends. I love the gold hardware and buckle detail, which give the booties a more versatile aesthetic. Dress these rocker-chic booties up or down—whatever you choose the low heel is comfortable enough to take you all over town.
Lastly, a must-have in your shoe wardrobe is a pair of casual brown booties. These boots are perfect for everyday events such as running errands or going to class. They're something you can throw on with jeans, a dress, cut-offs, leggings, and so on. The possibilities are endless. The booties Helena from Brooklyn Blonde is wearing are the ultimate casual booties. I love how she paired them with distressed jeans and an oversized coat for a chilly fall day. When picking a casual bootie, go for a light brown color and possibly a wrap detail on the ankle.
