I am so excited to chat about one of my favorite fall trends – leopard booties. We know that leopard is ALWAYS a neutral but instead of hints of it here and there like in seasons past, we’re going BIG with it this fall. I’m talking a full bootie of this fabulous print! The easiest way to style leopard booties for fall is by pairing them with faux leather leggings and an oversized sweater. Clean and simple pieces make the leopard print really pop, but don’t be afraid to mix in stripes, plaid, or herringbone 😉 I usually opt for a neutral sweater so the booties are the star of the show, but a red slouchy sweater would look fab, as well!
When it comes to selecting a shaft height for your booties, my rule of thumb is this: if you have thin legs, go for a taller shaft that comes up over your ankle and if you have athletic calves (like myself) go for a shorter, true bootie. These Sam Edelman booties are hands down, the best I have found! The block heel and low shaft makes them comfortable to wear all night long and the price isn’t too shabby either. Would you believe I found these at Nordstrom Rack?!
Let me be clear, though – not all leopard is created equal. There’s a whole lot of tacky out there in the world, which is why I have rounded up my favorite patterns, styles, and heights below!
