How to Wear Ankle Booties

If you look up the word “bootie” on the Internet you’ll get the answer ” a soft shoe, typically knitted , worn by a baby”. But in the fashion and shoe world there are three different kinds of booties; baby, protective and women’s booties. This fall women’s booties are one of the season’s hottest silhouettes, which means there are an array of colors, styles, heel heights and fabrics. So how do you choose and which style goes with what? Well the great news is that they are flattering, versatile and can be worn all year long. Ankle booties or low slung booties are great to pair with skinny jeans, floating dresses or a fit-and-flare skirt. If your height challenged a pointed toe bootie works great for you, creating a natural extension of the leg. To maximize your leg length, keep everything below your waist in the same dark color family with skinny jeans or dark tights.


The ankle bootie trend has been going strong for a couple of years now, and previously the style has been to wear your skinnies tucked into them, but leave it to the fashion world to tweak it a little every year. When wearing your skinny jeans or even straight legged, create a break between the top of the bootie and bottom of the jean by rolling them up. You want to see just a bit of skin peaking out. Make it look effortless by keeping them the same height but slightly different angles and widths.



When wearing ankle booties with skirts or dresses keep the hem length slightly above the knee. As mentioned previously, keep everything below the same color. Whether bare legged or with tights.


There are so many fun booties out there, whether they are wedges, cut-out, laced or buckled. Whether you are an executive or a mom, booties are a natural choice to add to your existing wardrobe and style. Take a chance and get “Styled Now”.
