In California we don’t get much of a true winter, not in the same way that say someone in Chicago or New York does. But one thing us Californians love – is the “idea” of a winter wonderland and all of the fabulous clothing staples that come along with it.
Burgundy’s, maroons, deep olive tones and of course, fall booties! In addition, fall is a time where you can easily transition your outfits from day to night in a few seamless ways.
Below I’ve posted a few of my favorite fall booties, who they’re by and where you can get them. All of these booties are also under $250! Steal.
Fall Favorite Booties:
1. Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry, “Lavish” bootie available at Zappos on sale for $144.99
These booties are fab-u-lous. They look like Loubotins and although they aren’t the best for an easy transition from day to night (due to heel height and color) they are perfect for a night out.
How to Wear: Pair these with a skinny black jean, long sleeve white shirt and a faux fur vest with a jeweled headpiece. This is a perfect way to blend boho-chic meets city dweller for a night out. Plus – it’s getting freezing here at night – so wear these with a long sleeve and stay warm. Or have a dirty martini – that should also do the trick.
2. Sole Society, Lylee Bootie, $79.95
Perfect transition bootie. Hands, down.
How to Wear: These suede booties are perfect with a skinny jean and loose top, or even a crop top. In addition, these boots would go great with a fall hat and fun statement necklace. To dress it up this boot is perfect for a crop top and leather jacket with some gold arm candy and neon painted nails.
3. Clary Bootie, Anthropologie, $218
These booties are a bit more expensive, but their heel height, color and pattern on the back make them a great fall boot that can easily be worn well into next spring.
How to Wear: Pair these booties with a sweater dress and a long necklace for work and to transition to night by replacing the long necklace with a statement bubble necklace in neutral tones or in a taupe color. Also – these color booties go great with maroon, so they’d pair perfectly with a maroon leather (pleather for those of us on a budget) or jean skinny pant with a nude top. #Perfection. But please make sure you have a pedicure as these do show the tips of the toes – and we all know that we tend to hold off our pedi’s during winter, we’re in socks all the time!
4. Sole Society, Guilana Bootie, $89.95
These are very similar to the first boots on this list here – but how could I not include a black bootie? Black is probably the end-all-be-all color for fall, and women LOVE it. It’s true what they say you know, black is absolutely slimming. I have you know, just a few black items in my wardrobe.
How to Wear: These booties are great with a dark jean, white top and olive green jacket. To dress up, grab an olive green blouse to pair with the black skinnies, a gold necklace and black and gold watch (preferably Michael Kors).
5. Rampage Viktor Bootie, $49.95 at DSW
These booties I have and love. They’re very comfortable – but again tight around the ankle and in my opinion look the best when paired with tights/leggings.
How to Wear: Neutral boots are the easiest to pair with an array of outfits. For me, I wore these with a black dress, black tights and a fedora that was also neutral in color. They’re also great with skinny skinny jeans and a chambray button up and bracelets galore.
Who doesn’t love shoe shopping… with someone else’s wallet?
These boots I love by Rag & Bone but they’re a bit pricy. Totaling almost $500.
They’re so adorable – which is also probably the reason why they’re sold out online. These boots are tight around the ankle so they either need to be paired with a cute black mini skirt and sweater or a fun dress with tights. In addition, these would be great with black leggings, a baggy boyfriend off-the-shoulder sweater and messy bun. You’re welcome, and I’m sorry wallets.
