The everlasting bootie! Here is a trend I thought for sure would die after one season, but here we are three years later and the bootie or ankle boot is still relevant. Who knew? As you can see from the Fall ’08 RTW runway…the bootie is not going anywhere for at least another season.
There really is no wrong way to wear the bootie. Wait, yes there is…with sheer hose. Who’s still wearing those anyway? We like our booties with opaques or a bare leg paired with a skirt or dress. They look great with any type of pant too.
