The bootie is a must have for Fall 2015. It has been a fashion trend for several seasons but I have been a little resistant to wholeheartedly embracing it in all areas of my wardrobe. All of a sudden this season I feel the need to add more booties to wear with skinny jeans, cropped pants, and skirts of all lengths. As I said in a recent Fashionomics newsletter, embracing trends is often a gradual process. I did buy a beautiful, very ladylike bootie in San Francisco last summer. It has a beautiful pointed toe and skinny heel, fits at the ankle and is a little dressier. I have worn it with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans. This season I have added a flat bootie, a chunky heel bootie and a bootie with some gold detail, all in black suede. I wear a lot of skinny jeans and leggings and this is looking more current than the boots I wore last fall. Skinny jeans are only one of many ways to style your booties. I have tried to find some great examples of ways to integrate the bootie into your wardrobe that are fun, functional and not too young for my contemporaries and readers.
