Ana’s Take on How to Wear Booties
Ana prides herself on donning head to toe fashions that are made in the United States. Her super cute wedge booties are no exception. They’re made from a beautiful brown suede which gives them a rustic feel and makes them work really well with distressed boyfriend jeans and a cozy hand knit sweater. The wedge heels are super comfy and give the booties a modern edge.
I think Ana always looks perfectly polished and pulled together. She tells me that some days she obsessively tries on outfit after outfit and plans exactly what she is going to wear. But other days she just throws anything on she knows works. Either way Ana, the suede booties add a modern edge.
Mixing Black with Brown
It’s a common misconception that you can’t wear brown with black. But the reality is it looks elegant and fantastic! It was no surprise to see style blogger Rebecca wearing this fabulous color combination. Her black skinny jeans tucked into tall brown boots create a striking contrast to the khaki and leather trench coat.
The animal print scarf ties all the colors together to unify Rebecca’s look. So cute! If you like Rebecca’s look, you can see plenty more of it on her blog Red Tag Chic Los Angeles.
Rock Wearing a Dress with Boots
Try stepping out of your comfort zone by pairing your favorite tall boots with your favorite dress. Wearing a dress with boots adds a sexy edge. Daphne who shares her favorite fashion finds and styles at Style-Phyles! loves this tiered knit dress that’s full of texture and style.
She says she had a lot of fun putting it together and came up with this brilliant idea. Daphne actually layered her black knit dress over a blue skirt to make her dress longer and create this cool colorblock effect. To finish off her look, she pulled on a pair of tall, suede, glove-like boots to make her legs look really sexy.
You look fabulous Daphne! Tall boots are a great way to turn an outfit from simple to sexy. Check out my other posts about this.
