Boots and booties

Which colors ?

Boots and Booties are plethora and featured in countless variations : flat heel, high heel, chunky heel, thin heel, square toe, pointed toe…as well from neutrals tone to the most eccentric (quirky) colors. It s very likely that until now, you have been a mono-maniac of the black or the camel versions… don’t you want to know which colors could multiply tenfold your possibilities? Would it better to play “safe” and keep black or neutral? Or crack for flashy tones? Here some advises to help you out with your choices! 

To select THE nominated pair of boots, my advise is to go through the contain of your wardrobe. 

Is it more filled with : 


  • Basic pieces, neutral tones or classic pieces with a more clean look ? If that’s your case, you should rather go for flashy boots, meaning colored or printed. 
  • Pieces with characters and attractive potential, then go for neutrals tones for your boots in order to tone down the whole look. 

Black boots & booties

The must have is at least one pair of black boots which will get on well with a lot of what’s part of your dressing! 

Choose them, though, in velvet leather, patent leather, leather with crocodile pattern, rather than 

Matte & smooth leather, this will give depth to your outfit. 

Black boots will perfectly matches from “rock style” look to classic look including glamorous style.

Gold or Silver boots and booties

Gold or Silver could almost be considered as neutrals , so much they get along with other colors. 

Just be a little careful when it comes to associate gold with black which can easily appear as “too much” and over the top for a daily outfit, swap the black for navy blue or anthracite. 

Gold boots or booties reveal a feminine and glamorous touch and give peps to any clean or too classic outfits. 

Stiletto heel and pointed toe boots can be iconic in your “rock style” look too.

In any case, these are an ally over the year, whatever season you are in.
