An upcoming trend this year is the bootie, not the gluteus maximus, but the versatile and flourishing ankle bootie. Most of us have relied on our knee-high boots and combat boots for our boot needs, however this new kid on the block could be your game changer. Where knee-high boots may work with simple skinny jeans or leggings, ankle booties work with all fits and colors of pants in addition to shorts and skirts as well (depending on the color of the bootie but most neutrals will match almost anything). Not that I don’t still love my combat and taller boots but it’s time to embrace a new trend.
This Fashionista is wearing a boho, printed dress, its loose-fit and cool colors allow the pattern to show without overwhelming contributing pieces, though it’s still strong on its own. Her lace-up, leather booties are paired expertly with her feminine dress and give off a moto cut-out bootie vibe. Her satchel-style purse and moto cutout booties go well with her dress due to their classic, simple, edgy twinge in combination with the softness of the dress. Her look is both clean and careless; she skillfully flaunts the versatility of the ankle bootie.
How To: This look is easily achievable and can be worn to a variety of events and occasions. You can find different variations of ankle booties from Forever 21 to Nordstrom, they’re everywhere and there’s a pair for you out there I swear. Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone with this one and wear a flowy dress (or a dress of any kind really, whatever floats your boat), black ankle booties with cutouts, a neutral toned handbag and maybe some fun lipstick or jewelry to mix it up. The selling point on this trend is its ability to adapt to any outfit, so don’t be shy about wearing those booties.
