Name a better accessory than a bootie. We dare you.
(No, toothbrushes don't count.)
Now that we have your attention...
Booties are the great equalizer! They will never turn you away, no matter your lifestyle. This is the beauty of the bootie-- they are always the right choice. Regardless of age, the right bootie can either make a smashing statement or quietly complete the perfect outfit. Some can even do both! Are you a sneaker lover? Did you know you can wear a bootie in nearly every occasion you wear a sneaker? They are the versatile comfort shoe in disguise. Whatever day you have planned, from Sporty Spice apres ski to Posh Spice at the holiday party, booties will take your look to the next level at no cost to comfort or fashion.
Why are booties the boot's perfect form?
Now, we all love a good tall boot but they aren't without their share of hassle. With a bootie, you get the tall boot cute without worrying about the shaft fitting too large or small on your calf. Any day of the week, throw on that ah-maz-ing dress (you know the one) you scored at Chelsea or Barbara & Company, some of our trusty Spanx tights, and your favorite booties to strut your legs in style. Don't forget a scarf if it's chilly! Has achieving the effortless look ever been so... effortless? Didn't think so.
What are we going to do about it?
Lucky for you, we've just marked several of our favorites down 20% to ease your holiday shopping. Still don't know where to start? Well, it's important to cover the basics. You've got to have the little black bootie... maybe in embossed leather or a luxurious little suede? A solid pop of color never goes amiss, adding a red or blue zing to your all-weather game (We're looking at you, La Bottega di Lisa). Then comes the brown... chocolate, tan, or rust? Have you even met A.S.98's "Irma?!" If not, you've got to give her a spin. Honey and cocoa blend into an unforgettable, classic color on my new very favorite I'm-going-to-be-working-9-hours-on-the-floor-during-a-holiday-rush-so-you-better-buckle-up-feet shoes. Sleek enough for dressing up, yet best-friend enough to pair with a sweater and run out the door, I can't pry these babies off my feet.
How does one properly rock the bootie into the year 2020?
Now that winter is flirting hard between bursts of sunshine, everyone seems to have waterproof wear on the brain. There's nothing like a thermometer that reads 3 degrees south of humane living conditions when I've got places to be, kids to take to school, and a Red Rocks date that can't be missed. I'd be in a panic, but I'm spoiled for options with my Bos & Co and Cougars in my wardrobe. How do I choose, you ask? If I'm going for chic, city, and sleek while bundling against the chill, I'll be sporting my waterproof, fur-lined high tops ("Dublin Black" by Cougar, if you must know!) with Tumbleweed hoop earrings and a burgundy bomber jacket. If I'm brewery hopping, out for brunch, braving a snowstorm, or going from daytime casual to evening plans, I have my Bos & Co ready to go. Heels or flats, lug sole or crepe, in all the hues you can imagine, there is a perfect mate for every trouser, skirt, or tights in my closet.
What are you waiting for?
