Fit Tips: How to Wear Booties

Get your bootie style in gear with our expert Q&A. We’ve covered the when, how and who (everyone, by the way) of this silhouette so you’ll be ready to rock it today.

Q: When is it ok to start wearing booties? 
A: 
The better question is “Can I have a pair in every color?” With their short and sweet silhouette, booties are a season-spanning style. If you’re wary of warm-weather wear, look for lighter hues, peep toes and cutout details before the temperature cools.

Elevated Style: What to Wear With Wedge Sneakers

Comfortable yet slimming, sporty yet sexy — the wedge sneaker is one of those ingenious designs that makes you wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?” But while the concept is simple, styling the hybrid shoe can prove to be a bit tricky. Fortunately, we have some easy tips for creating both casual and eye-catching looks.

Sporty Chic

If you’re going for a laid-back look with a little lift, sporty styling is the place to start. Think skinny jeans (in dark denim or black) paired with updated sweatshirts and slouchy graphic tees. Throw in delicate jewelry and a structured bag to hint at your femininity.

Gianni Bini: Fashion in Black & White

Hot off the runways this season, black-and-white looks are fun to wear and easy to pull off. Whether worn as a head-to-toe ensemble or as a statement piece, these styles are flattering and on-trend.

We love this cleverly blocked Gianni Bini Polki ponte skirt set for its figure-narrowing panels and edgy feel, perfect with heels for a dinner date or with a cropped jacket and boots for a concert. The partial chain handles and contrast stitching of the MICHAEL Michael Kors Colorblock Chelsea tote and the Juicy Couture Oversized Animal-Print Sunglasses complete the look with a taste of the wild side.

Take black-and-white in a sweeter direction with the classic style and crisp tailoring of the Gianni Bini Fallon collared fit-and-flare dress. The clean lines of the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Messenger Bag accentuate the simple look. Fresh with polka-dot-detailed frames, the kate spade new york Brenna polarized cateye sunglasses make an adorable finishing touch.
