Fashion Trend: Black Booties

by Shannon Wilson

Over the past few months, I have noticed that more and more of my favorite places to shop have been selling black booties. You know, not a full-length boot so they called it bootie to make it cute! Stores and brands such as H&M, Urban Outfitters, and Zara are selling a variety of these ankle black boots that are relatively affordable for those on a budget. For $25 and up, you can add a pair to your collection!

Not only are they sleek and edgy with a little heel, but they also be paired with nearly every outfit. When paired well, black booties add attitude and style to solidify your ensemble! Celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Miranda Kerr, and Blake Lively have all been spotted wearing black booties with all kinds of bottoms from jeans to skirts to leggings. Kylie Jenner posted the photo on her Instagram showing a few different designs of black booties being incorporated into everyday wear. Black booties are an essential piece to have in your closet!

However, quick tip! If you buy them from a UK website, make sure you convert Euros to American dollars before purchasing – learn from my mistakes :) But wait, don’t think for a minute that these shoes are not an investment to last – boots and black (especially black!) will never go out of style. Whether you’re going for chic, classy, artsy, or punk – you can incorporate black booties into your trendy wardrobe!
