How to wear ankle boots

Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to find of a pair of booties that just work at all times? OK, maybe not with every single outfit, but ones that you can throw on and don’t have to plan your outfit around. Ones that are able to complete a look that you’ve already got figured out and act as the finishing touch (that’s what I call a low maintenance shoe- one that doesn’t call for one-on-one specialized attention). 
This issue– that is, figuring out what makes a bootie work and why– is what I want to focus today’s post on. But in order to fully answer that, I wanted to first talk about all the bootie styles you’ll find out there– at least popular ones. Because figuring out how to wear booties has a lot to do with what kind you’re trying to wear. Further, certain styles of booties are more limiting than others and tend to work better with particular styles. 

Low Block Heel– This is going to be your everyday go-to-bootie with a little bit of a heel. Personally, this is the bootie that I wear the MOST often and find to be the most comfortable– whether I’m wearing them for 2 hours or 12. 

High Pointy Ankle Booties-– Any bootie that’s got more than a 3- inch stacked heel, is going to have a slightly dressier look to it– regardless of whether it’s made of suede or leather. A higher heel just looks dressier. One could argue that low or high stacked-heels are pretty interchangeable. It really just depends on your comfort and whether you can wear a higher heel for longer periods of time. 
Thank you so much for reading. Have a fabulous weekend ahead!
