Booties are back again for this fall and are definitely a staple to have in your 2009 fall wardrobe. If you recall booties (mini-boots) made a big appearance in the fashion runways last year and were all the rage with celebrities and fashion trendsetters. It appears that booties are not going anywhere anytime soon, but the booties for this fall and winter are all about the details.
A big fashion runway trend with booties was the addition of chains. A couple layers of chains running across the front of the shoe adds some dramatic appeal to the footwear. Another detail that was seen on the runways was the use of buckles on booties. Even though these buckles served no actual purpose, they added a great fashion design to the shoes and gave them more personality.
Following this fashion trend is really not that difficult. You can easily find yourself a killer pair of booties that can get you through all of fall and winter. If you really want to spice your wardrobe up, pick a pair with chains or a buckle detail . Booties come in all different colors and materials. They can be suede, leather, or even wool. If you want to stick to the basics, then you can’t go wrong with a black or dark brown leather or suede pair.
Booties can be worn with several different outfits. Despite what you may think, it is a popular fashion trend to wear booties with skirts, preferably shorter ones. You can even add some tights or leggings under the skirt as well if you really want to go all out with the trend. If you would like to keep your fashion sense a little calmer, pair a cute pair of booties with a pair of bootleg jeans or tuck a pair of skinny jeans into them. You can wear the shoes to the office, to the park, or for a date night. They are truly a transitional piece that can be worn with just about anything.
I don’t see booties going anywhere and can definitely see them lasting through 2010.
