We asked:Are Ankle Boots In or Out?
You said: In! A full 59% of you voted Ankle Boots In.
Omiru’s take: Ankle Boots (aka "Booties") are THE hot boot style for Fall, if you believe what you read in the fashion glossies. Sure, boots are always In for Fall, but we find these ankle boots much more difficult to wear than the standard-issue knee-high variety. Beware if you have less-than-perfect legs, as these booties visually shorten your leg line. Style tip? Avoid boots that hit directly at the ankle bone–choose styles that end right below or right above your ankle bone for the most flattering look. As for what to wear with ankle boots, try simple silhouettes, such as a knee length skirt, a sweater dress or a belted military-inspired coat. Oh, and don’t forget tights or leggings for an even more svelte look.
Next question: Environmentally friendly (and organic) are the new retail buzzwords. Organic foods, recycled goods, and even eco-friendly cars (think: the Prius) are being embraced by the American public. But what do you think about Eco-Friendly Fashion?
