And thankfully from traditional ankle booties to women’s wedge booties, there’s a one-shoe solution for every look and every season. Want to style your transitional wardrobe like a pro? Here’s a helpful guide dishing everything you need to know about pairing booties with your everyday wear. Determine the Right Height From flat, combat styles to platform wedges – there’s a bootie out there that can elevate you to any height. So how do you decide which is right for outfit of the day? Take it from the pros, and be modest with your heel height if comfort is a consideration. You may look fab in those 6” stiletto booties, but if you’re going to be limping by the end of the day, it’s just not worth it. A tip from the pros: “My trick is relatively easy: I stick to what I know works for my feet. Stilettos are a great look, but I have yet to find a pair I can comfortably wear for hours on end—so instead, I reach for mid-height chunky heels that fully support my feet. I leave the stilettos for date nights and other things that I know don't involve a lot of running around—and my feet thank me for it." — Meghan Blalock, Managing Editor of Who What Wear
  3. 3. WWW.OTBTSHOES.COM | FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL @OTBTSHOES | OTBT FASHION FOOTWEAR GUIDE | 7 TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE ANKLE BOOTIES LIKE A PRO Choose Open or Closed-toe Booties This tip is relatively simple: If it’s warm you can reach for open or closed-toe booties. If it’s cold, avoid showing your purpling piggies by keeping them under wraps. While open-toe booties provide a bit more coverage than your sandals, if your car is still icing over in the mornings – be patient. Bring them out when the daffodils are in bloom. Show a Little Skin For casual-cool, wear your booties showing a little skin – ankle skin that is. Cuff your jeans for casual-tailored style, or roll them for model off duty vibes. Baring anywhere from a quarter to a half-inch of angle is a good rule of thumb to bring the right amount of attention to your cute new shoes.
  4. 4. WWW.OTBTSHOES.COM | FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL @OTBTSHOES | OTBT FASHION FOOTWEAR GUIDE | 7 TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE ANKLE BOOTIES LIKE A PRO Try a Tuck A bit too cold to bare your ankles? Try a tuck. Tucking jeans or leggings into booties keeps you cold-weather appropriate. Just ensure that you’re wearing a skinny, fitted pant style to avoid unnecessary bulk. Stuffed denim kankles are so not in. Layer with Leggings Leggings were made for booties. They’re fitted, flattering, and more comfortable than even your favorite PJs. You can wear them tucked, cropped or layered with socks. For cooler days pair the look with a poncho or a layered jacket and tee. For warm days, try a loose tank or a lightweight shirt-dress for everyday-chic.
  5. 5. WWW.OTBTSHOES.COM | FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL @OTBTSHOES | OTBT FASHION FOOTWEAR GUIDE | 7 TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE ANKLE BOOTIES LIKE A PRO Warm it up in a Summer Dress Ready to bring out your inner wanderlust? Pair your booties with your favorite summer dresses for a laid-back, feminine charm. The more floral print the better, or try a teared baby-doll dress to show off your vintage western vibes. Play it Cool in Shorts Nothing says confidence that booties and your favorite pair of summer shorts. Don’t be afraid to show those gorgeous stems! The combo is casual-cool and the right mix of tomboy and chic. Try frayed denim and a tee for every day, or tailored shorts and a blouse for a summer’s night out. Now it’s time to go play in your wardrobe. How will you mix-up your transitional style? Tucked, rolled, dresses or shorts… why not try them all? With a closet stocked with flat, open-toe, closed-toe and women’s wedge booties – the choices are endless. Have fun dressing like a pro, and stomping around in style in your ankle booties.
