Fall Transitional Pieces: Bold Booties + Basic Bottoms

These first weeks of Fall 2014 have been pretty chill so far. The days are feeling a bit crisper, the nights a bit cooler, which means it’s time for some of our favorite outfits to undergo a fall revision. We’re still in that weird transition where it’s not as hot anymore, but it’s still not freezing yet. The best way to dress for this fickle weather? Booties and light bottoms. Booties aren’t as intense as chunky boots, making them perfect for the next few months. They kind of say, “It’s time to put the flip-flops and slip-prone stilettos away, but there’s no need to bust the rain boots out quite yet.” If you don’t know what a bootie is…it’s basically a boot, but with a shorter shaft. It’s for the girl who can’t quite decide between heels and boots. It’s a hybrid of comfort and sexiness that every fashion-focused babe should definitely try. And what bottoms should you be pairing with these booties? Well, it’s not quite time for thermal underwear layered under jeans, but it is time for lightweight trousers, mid-length skirts, faux leather overalls, and heavier textured shorts.

Still can’t picture? No need. We’ve collected a bunch of pictures of our favorite fashion bloggers who’ve got the look down cold. Enjoy…

4 Ways To Wear Booties, Like, Now

#LBH, Janes, it’s still pretty freakin’ hot outside. And while shopping is always a priority around this time of year (new season = new wardrobe, duh), we know how hard it is to imagine wearing fall gear when the temperature has been on the high side as of late. Well, ladies, we want to let you in on a little secret… Believe it or not, there is one fall essential that you can already start incorporating into your #OOTDs. We’re talking about a pair of booties, the perfect transitional shoe that you can wear now and later. Yeaaah, we’re pretty stoked about it, too.

If you don’t already know, a pair of booties is just like a pair of boots, only much shorter in height (typically stopping around your ankles). And because of their classic shape and style, it’s likely that the booties of your choice will go with most of the outfits you’ve already been rockin’ all summer. Not sure how to incorporate this trend today? That’s where we come in…

Here are 4 ways we’re wearing our booties right now:

1. Maxi Dress –  No need to put away your favorite maxi dress just yet, ladies. We’re definitely still wearing ours, except we’ve switched out our sandals and wedges for a pair of booties instead. If you do decide to go the bootie route (which you should), be sure to wear ones with a bit of height, like our Werking Girl Zipped Peep-Toe Booties or our Cutting Class Platform Booties. And when it gets chilly out, just add a scarf and a jacket. Easy as that.

2. Mini Dress – Since the sun is still blaring, you definitely have our permission to continue to show off those gams of yours. Slip on a mini dress (or skirt) and a pair of booties, like our Zip To It Pointy Toe Booties or our Tri Buckle ‘N Zip Booties, for the perfect day-to-night outfit. Once fall finally hits, just add a blazer and a pair of opaque tights to the mix.

3. Shorts – Don’t lie, we know you still can’t get enough of your favorite cut-offs! Well, do us a solid and ditch the sandals for a pair of booties instead. A flat or a low heeled bootie, like the Tough ‘N Chic Faux Leather Booties, are perfect for a daytime look, but you can also switch those out for something like the Double Take Chunky Peep-Toe Booties when the sun goes down. Fall-ify this look the same way you would with a mini dress.

4. Boyfriend Jeans – Okay, so maybe boyfriend jeans have become a year-round staple, whatever. There’s just something ultra chic about sporting them with a pair of booties! Be a game changer and go with a bold pair, like the Studded Queen Pointy Booties or the Twisted Classic Chelsea Booties, to flawlessly contrast the denim. Add some layers, like a scarf and jacket, when it gets cold. You know the drill.
