Fancy Footwork: Boots with Buckles & Embellishments

You heard it here first—the bootie is the new pump.

Pay close attention to the buckles and embellishments on this season’s boots—we’re into Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino. Modern and fresh, the bootie will give your lady dress an edgy, sexy update without the “precious” feel of a pump.

Here are four ways you can wear this season’s hottest booties:

  1. Pair them with satin opaque tights for an elongating, flattering effect.
  2. Take it one step further and shorten your mid-length dress a notch for the coveted 1960s mod look.
  3. Find a little “Audrey” dress that’s been sitting in your closet, throw on a cardigan, add a bootie, and voila—you have a go-to office look.
  4. Bring your bootie from day into evening by pairing it with a festive LBD and a chic clutch—just in time for Holiday party season!
