If you haven’t already seen girls in short boots (a.k.a. booties) around campus, get ready, because bootie season is approaching. Whether going to class or going Uptown, these shoes are the perfect addition to a fall outfit.
But, this is a major trend here at Miami. So, what can you do to make yourself stand out? The answer is you can rock these babies with pretty much anything you want to wear.
You can re-wear a summer dress, add a grandpa sweater, a statement necklace, and a pair of flat casual booties to make a casual outfit. This outfit is comfy, stylish, and perfect for classrooms that tend to be too hot or too cold.
Don’t like dresses? That’s fine too! There are a million ways to match booties with a pair of jeans. The best ways to wear jeans with booties is to roll them above the ankle or tuck them into the boots.
Adding a vest and a long sleeve shirt can add your personality to this trend through patterns and designs. Don’t be afraid to stray from the normal brown, tan, and black booties. Compliment this outfit with red, plum, or even dark green booties to give it a pop of color.
Of course, if you’re like most girls, you have those days where you just want to throw on leggings and a big sweater. Well, you can easily be just as comfy by switching that sweater to one of your summer kimonos and adding a big scarf or simple colorful necklace.
Need a dressier outfit? Wear a skater skirt and a sweater with tights or tall socks.
The number one rule for wearing booties is to let your style shine. Wear what makes you happy and don’t be afraid to experiment.
