2014 may have been the year of the booty, but we are now halfway through 2015 and the cutout bootie continues to be going strong in the world of fashion. This Fashionista shows us how to rock the trend, even during these summer days.

A bit of leather can instantly take any outfit from casual to edgy. Whether it is with a moto jacket or some boots (or both), leather shows the world not only that you can’t be messed with, but also that you have a knack for adding interest to your look. Leather booties with a cutout have an extra perk when adding interest to any outfit since they play with the shapes used. Plus, lets not forget they are a great excuse for those of us who aren’t sock fans to go without them.

This Fashionista decided to wear her cutout booties with a classic pair of lightly ripped jeans and a long gray top, which helps her stay comfortable throughout the day. To accessorize she wore a black hat, a small gold necklace, simple pearl earrings and a statement ring. Her, for the most part, monochromatic color scheme also helps complete the edgy vibe to her look.

Although this Fashionista decided to wear her booties with jeans, don’t be afraid to mix and match. This trend can recreate any summer look by giving them a bit of an edge.
