Top of the Crop
The ever-versatile bootie has become falls main course.
Laced up, buckled up or zipped up, there are few shoe styles that rival the versatility and wearability of footwear’s most fabulous entrée: the bootie. Effortlessly chic and oh-so-practical, booties have taken over as the go-to shoe for fall and beyond. What the ankle-grazer lacks in height, it by far makes up in stylish details. Low-heel, mid-heel and high-heel styles boast details, cuts and colors that add just the right amount of spice to a flavorful wardrobe. Chelsea boot styles are getting a revamp in textured leather and suede, while hiking boots have gone high fashion. Even designer collaborations are injecting a special blend of sass and style into the previously basic bootie. Wear ’em with skinny jeans, baggy trousers (cuffed, of course), flirty dresses or the season’s of-the-moment knits to ensure your look is the one everyone’s dishing about.
