STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Put Your Best Bootie Forward

Style Advice of the Week

It’s that not-so-wonderful time of the year… back to school! Don’t cringe, because together we can make it the most stylish semester you ever had! I personally love the first few weeks of class because it is the perfect excuse to get a little more dressed up and put your best foot forward for the semester. Also, it’s a new year! Make 2014 a year without sloppy sweats by taking inspiration from this Fashionista’s look, which is the definition of perfection for a day full of classes.

How fierce does this Fashionista look on her way to class? From head to toes, her outfit looks effortless but staggeringly stylish. Her trendy army green and leather motorcycle jacket is an eye catcher, as are her playful ripped light wash jeans. But neither of these are what make her outfit complete. It’s that pair of simple, edgy yet clean-cut booties that manage to take the look up at notch.

What I find completely amazing about booties is that they truly are an everyday shoe that can take any look from frumpy to fabulous. Whether you are wearing something as casual as a sweater and leggings, booties can cap off that look like no other. Want to give that combination of a sweater and leggings a completely fresh feel? Try swapping your usual go-to riding boots for a pair of casual booties! There’s nothing better than feeling comfortable while still looking positively chic.

One of the best things about booties? You can wear them during any season! Cold, wet, hot or whatever weather Mother Nature decides to send your way can be conquered by the powerful bootie. The versatile shoe comes in a plethora of different forms: perforated, wedged or even lined with fur, just to name a few. During springtime, you might want a sand-colored pair of wedge booties, but in the winter, there’s absolutely nothing holding you back from throwing on your trusty dark booties with a stacked heel! There is a pair of booties out there for everyone, the choice is yours. Good luck and happy styling, Fashionistas/os!
