You guys don’t even understand how much I love a good pair of booties. I seriously think they are the greatest shoe style ever invented and I have no problem wearing them year round. For me, a good ankle boot will go with everything, has a small heel for style and comfort, and has an adorable detail you can’t live without. That being said I was weary of this sock boot trend at first. Sock booties are basically booties that are made of a very elastic material so that they form fit over your foot and around your ankle- like a sock. I wanted to see how to trend played out a little before I bought a pair of my own, after seeing all the adorable ways these boots have been styled I decided to get a pair of my own. I went with the solid black leather ones I’m wearing in this post because I know black leather is very versatile and the lower shaft height will be wearable into spring.
Wow! I love these shoes. The mini heel makes them easy to move in all day, they don’t make my feet look like duck feet (a concern I had because they look really long) and they go with so much. A benefit of the sock bootie is they look just like an extension of your leg. I sometimes am iffy about dresses and booties going together because if you wear the wrong fitting shoes your legs will look like stumps but that’s not possible with a sock bootie. The boot is so tight to your leg that it literally looks like its an extension of your body. And we all know the best way to make those legs look longer is to create the illusion that your legs go from your waist to the tip of your toes. So, bonus points for shoes with pointed toes!
I also want to take a quick second to talk about this dress. This dress is incredible. It has so many gorgeous details like the low cut front and back which are the perfect amount of revealing. The dramatic statement sleeves, which are totally trending right now, by the way! Andddd the bold colors/ pattern that add to the beautiful movement of the dress. The material of the dress is also very thick and high quality so you don’t even have to wear a bra, somehow the dress provides the perfect support and coverage to allow you to ‘be free’.
- They are comfortable
- Wide variety of color, fabric and patterns
- They look like an extension of your leg (making you look longer and leaner)
- Bonus points for a low heel and pointed toe
