Fall Must-Haves: Booties
One of my favorite parts of changing seasons is the changing of wardrobes & everyone knows fall wardrobes are the best wardrobes. Sweaters and leggings and boots, oh my.
We can't mention fall footwear without instantly thinking of the perfectly versatile transition shoe from summer to fall and fall to winter and winter to spring: booties. Flat or heeled, short or tall, leather or suede.. You really can't go wrong with any of the endless choices of booties this season.
You can pair a light suede chunky heel with flirty dresses and bohemian braids & waves for my true girl's girl out there. The unexpected mix of soft and feminine & a heavier look on your feet balances the perfect amount of sweet and sassy.
Grungy rocker is where my little fall heart is. I love pairing my distressed leather booties with stonewashed denim or a leather mini, vintage concert tee and your boyfriend's softest plaid button-down, pearl snap or flannel around your waist. (And trust me - it'll always be cuter on you so he won't stay mad for too long after your stealthy closet raid.)
One of the easiest (and comfiest!) go-to looks this fall is combining some of your basic wardrobe staples. Your softest oversized tee in any neutral-toned print, color, pattern with your favorite cuffed skinnies or cut-off denim shorts - throw on a fleece or fur vest when the temps start to drop, a fitted utility jacket in a light to medium khaki or army green, a mid-length duster cardigan to add some length to your frame, or your fave leather jacket & you're ready for work, play, and everywhere in between.
For my mega boss babes, pair this look with a well-tailored blazer. Splurging on good quality, material and fit will definitely pay off in the long run. You almost always get what you pay for when it comes to blazers & if well-maintained (see: dry clean), a nice piece of outerwear can last you several, several years. Personal fave: BCBG.
I love adding pieces to my closet with major versatility and booties are the perfect addition for any fall wardrobe. What are some of your favorite fall looks featuring booties?
