The latest craze this fall are shooties! The shooties are ankle boots that look like your regular shoes – in short, boots that are low cut. These styles work well with skinny jeans or pants and can add a hint of toughness to your favourite dress! Its a shoe that you can wear whether warm or cold. A definite must have this season for all the fashionistas out there! Shooties flatter ankles and are making a major appearance this fall. They come in a variety of shapes,sizes n styles: there’s just so many out there to pick from – from suede to belted, cut out to peep toe, studded to ruched.

one of my favourites, the ruched v-line pump

next up there’s the peep toe bootie and a real eye catcher, the suede belted bootie some with straps for the gladiator look

or even the old school look

So what should you wear with these boots?

1. Ankle boots work best with pants.The advantage to wearing them over shoes or taller boots is that you get ankle coverage without the bulk of a knee-high boot. But the only pants that work well tucked into ankle boots are very tight ones. Wide legged pants tucked into short boots create an unflattering balloon effect.

2.Long leggings or tights look great – assuming of course, that leggings look good on you in the first place. Cropped leggings and short tights are a definite no-no as this combination takes inches of your height while adding bulk to your legs.

3.Long skirts are a classic combo. Key is to show no leg.However for those of you who prefer short skirts, look for skirts that are a couple of inches above the knee or shorter.

Here are a few pictures of celebrities who have the whole shootie look figured out:

By staying all in one color, Kate Hudson elongates her slender frame. Usually, short boots tend to break up the leg, cutting them off at the ankles, but Kate’s gray ensemble keeps her looking long and lean.

By pairing ankle boots and pants of the same color Ashlee creates the illusion of long legs. Plus, the slim-fitted leggings tuck perfectly into her booties for a clean line and smooth silhouette.

with all this in mind, what else are you waitin for? go look for your perfect pair now….

    Great article on fashion! It’s good to hear that some Volgogradians has up-to-date view on style /trends.

    Ankle booties certainly cannot be paired with wide-leg pants, can be worn with cuffed carrot pants. See these pics from thesartorialist for inspiration!!–>
