Accessories Report

Ankle boots have proven that they are just as strong of a style as their taller counterparts. Booties are not only comfortable, but also go with just about any type of ensemble. I’ll admit, it took me some time to give in to the way of the ankle boots. Now I cannot imagine my closet without them. They are truly wardrobe (and life) changing. You can rock these shoes rain or shine. I am a proud owner of a pair of black booties and am guilty of wearing them multiple times a week.

This Fashionista caught my eye with her use of my favorite color scheme— black and white with accents of gold. Her matching black tote and booties complete this wonderfully monochromatic look. Forget flip flops, ankle boots are perfect for walking around the big city, even in the heat. Find a pair with a heel to dress up a casual look or bring some urban chic to the office.

Ankle boots come in all shapes and heel sizes. Start with your preferred height and find a pair that complements your style. What’s great about these shoes is the fact that they can be worn year round. Pair with tights and a dress that is as fit for the weather as it is flattering. Spice up an outfit with mixed print booties like these drool worthy ones by Freda Salvador. Adding booties to a skirt or dress can work wonderfully to balance an outfit out. Let them work their way into your closet (and your heart).
