Style tip?  Booties are tough to wear, as they visually shorten your legs - so they’re best worn by women with long, lean legs. If you dare to wear booties, pair them with a short skirt or shorts to visually extend your legs as much as possible.

    I want to get booties this year. I am eagerly awaiting for the latest poll to close, because then we’ll get suggestions of good ones to take a look at along with the results.

    I have big calves. Should I wear booties instead of the knee high ones?

    thanks!

    Margz, try knee high boots with a generously cut calf for the longest, leanest look. Or, if you’d like to try booties, wear them with dark colored tights.

    Hope that helps!

    Which booties would you rather buy….
    CK Beverly brown
    or
    CK Dixie embossed brown?

    I am in between those two!!!
    Thanks

    I just got a pair from Steve Madden in burgundy? Should I switch to black for a more versatile shoe? I go to a really laidback college so wearing 4.5 inch heels at all is a stretch.
