how to wear booties karen kloppRemember when booties were something you lovingly tied on your little one’s itty bitty feet, only to have them kicked off a moment later.  Well now they have gone mainstream.  A friend recently asked the question, “How do I wear booties?”   I  have learned to love the short cut boots that have become a wardrobe staple.  They have come out from under our jeans to create a modern silhouette, that anyone can wear.  I like to pair them with slim knit pants and a big cozy sweater, an everyday “uniform” for casual days in the office that can easily go to lunch.  My preference is to keep a monochrome look for a long, lean appearance.  We asked our Fashion Editor, Hilary Dick, always chic and up-to-date for her take on the genre.  To see her picks go to Dressing with Booties.
