Ask StyleBakery: What’s The Best Way To Wear Booties?

Q. What is the best way to wear booties?

A. Not only are ankle boots a huge trend, but they’re also extremely versatile. You can wear them with jeans or leggings or in place of a pump with dresses and skirts. Since booties range from super low (sometimes called shooties) to heights that are well above your ankle bone, how you wear your boots depends on the style of boot.

Shooties or shoe booties look best with skirts, dresses and long skinny jeans or leggings. These are the most flattering style to wear since they come down low on the leg, making them look longer than with other styles of boots. Booties that come up a bit higher on the ankle can also be worn with skirts and dresses but look best on women with slim calves. Another option for ankle boots is to wear them with skinny or boot cut jeans or leggings. Here are some celebrity photos for inspiration:

Katy Perry, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart and Rihanna all wear booties with bare legs and dresses or skirts, though tights would also be a great addition to any of these looks. Note that all of the hemlines hit well above the knee for a flattering leg look.

Rihanna, Nicky Hilton and Leighton Meester wear booties of various heights with skinny jeans and leggings, while Keri Russell shows how to wear them with boyfriend jeans.
