Fall Trend: Get Bootie-licious

August 23, 2007 by Jeanine Edwards

When booties first began to get popular, I despised them. What was the point of boot that only covered my foot? Isn't that just a shoe? Like most things, though, as I saw the bootie more and more, it began to grow on me. At first I thought maybe it wouldn't be so bad with trousers or bootcut pants. People would never know I had on a shoe posing as a boot. Now that I’ve seen some of the fall runways (this look's from Diane von Furstenberg) and the lookbooks are popping up online, I'm really starting to (dare I say) like booties with (of all things) skirts, dresses and skinnies.

If you're anything like I was, I'm sure you're probably shaking your head in disappointment. I was there, so I completely understand. It does look a little weird at first, but if you really examine the ensemble, you'll notice that a sexy shift or sheath dress plus an amazing bootie equals REALLY long legs. And who doesn’t want long legs? I’m only 5’4 so I need all the help I can get.

What do you think of booties?

Because I am new convert, it’s my duty to try and sway a few fence-sitters, so feast your eyes on these fabulous and reasonably priced booties.

1. Calvin Klein Hadrian ($150) in black leather and stretch fabric — the combination of materials make these really unique.

2. BCBG Max Azria Nilla ($254) – if you’re into quilting, these are perfect for you. The look is classic yet fashion-forward at the same time.

3. Michael Kors 'Studio' Boot ($190) — spice things up with goregous gold booties that are a fun way to wear the trend.

4. BCBGirls Pauline Ankle Bootie ($129) — it's sleek and shiny in sassy brown patent.

Are you convinced? I want to know if I'll be all alone in my booties this fall.
