When it comes to shoes for fall 09, booties are still hot. Whether you call them a shoebooty or shoe bootie (or ankle boots), they’re cute. Calling them “booties” reminds me of the little booties that babies wear, but no one seems to mind. So, what shoe boots are cute for right now? And, even more importantly, let’s discuss how to wear shoe boots. Because the worst thing is to buy something great and then have no idea what to do with it besides look at it longingly in your closet.

June of JuneLin.com has posted pictures of booties seen on the runways for Hermes, J Mendel, and Marc Jacobs. Those shoes are BANANAS, as Rachel Zoe would say. But seriously, I PINE, I YEARN! And yet, I still can’t buy them because then I would have no where to live… And now I feel like I need to reference that Sex and the City joke that Carrie Bradshaw makes about how… ‘I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes‘. Of course, if my shoes were as fabulous as Bradshaw’s, I might not mind AS much.

Okay, so what do you wear a shoe boot with? It’s actually simpler than you might think. Tights or leggings are a must.  Skirts or dresses of just about any length work. Tight pants that meet where the boots start, or can be tucked in, are also great. Do not wear your ankle boots with bootleg jeans.

What I like about ankle boots… is that they have nice accessories on them – like studs or ruffles – and you get to really show them off. But you need to remember that, ankle boots are best with the other current trends a la leggings and tights. If you aren’t into those, you might not be as into ankle boots as you thought.

P.S. Are Oxford shoes still trendy? I don’t really think so. I’m surprised so many people are still curious about “How to wear Oxfords” and “How to Wear Oxford Shoes“. Really, they’re over! Booties replaced them.
