Shoetie Is The New Bootie
But if anyone asks, a shoetie is really a bootie. More specifically, the kind of bootie that ends at your ankle. It has a nice lyrical flow and rrrrrrrolls off the tongue, non? Before the streets fill up with slush and snow, Fall is the best time to invest in suede or leather booties. Much like a leather bomber jacket, booties have a short timeframe on the East Coast so wear them while you can!
Shoetie chic – Shoeties look great with slim pants like a stretch ponte or a cigarette pant. They are also very striking with a basic black opaque tight (very flattering) or for added punch, try them with a bold tight in a jewel tone. For casual days where you don’t want to channel a ragamuffin (translation: more dressed up, than dressed down), nothing beats shoeties with a favourite pair of jeans.
