They are everywhere and yet like the maxi dress, they can be a daunting purchase (one that may end up living in the back of your closet…). Worn with pants booties are a no brainer and not a new silhouette, it’s pairing them with a dress that is the big message for fall.
Here are the tricky bits. Black booties with a bare leg, even if the said leg is long and lean, can be a tough look. And if the dress is to the knee, is there enough leg for a bootie to still work and not look like Fleetwood Mac?
I think this is a trend that must not be followed blindly. Try on many styles and a lighter color may be a better choice. But I promise that if you find the perfect pair, they will be a wardrobe staple.
The Maison Martin Margiela’s above look pretty darn cute…
