Whenever I walk into a shoe department this season everywhere I look I see one thing: booties. I only recently began to notice this when I was in a Nordstrom shoe department looking for riding boots. I realized there weren’t many options because booties were everywhere!

When the bootie trend first started a couple of years ago, I was not a fan. I remember when my mom purchased a new pair and showed me them, I thought I would never wear shoes like those. Fast-forward a year and I was begging her to borrow them for myself! Before I knew it, I was purchasing my own pair of B.P. black booties that are probably my favorite pair of shoes I own.

During this season, booties are the most perfect and versatile shoe. They are the perfect shoe for a night out with a little heel, or for going to class when they are dressed down with a great pair of skinny jeans. Any way you wear them, you can’t go wrong!

This Fashionista has paired her adorable black booties with a great pair of dark skinny jeans to dress the look down. She paired the look with a black Free People ‘Long Beach’ tank top and a cute mesh-style tan cardigan. She kept the accessories simple with her delicate gold necklaces. I love how this outfit can easily be worn to class, or you could take the cardigan off and easily go out in it.
