Every girl needs a pair of leopard booties for when the temperature drops.
They’re the fiercest booties you can buy! Why?
1. They’re the perfect neutral — patterned enough to match with most looks but not enough to clash. I bought this adorable little pair at the Gilt City Warehouse sale last month (for under $40!) and have been wearing them with everything since! Their versatility has shocked me!
2. They hide scuffs and nicks well, perfect for someone like me who has a reputation for brutalizing their footwear (I have been known to do four-hour shoots in stilettos after all!).
3. They occupy that magical place where browns, tans, and blacks all meet WITHOUT clashing. Meaning these boots work just as well with black jeans as a tan sweater dress or a brown leather skirt. Leopard booties really are the chameleons of footwear.
4. They’re the perfect cold-weather silhouette too. Booties are half boot, half shoe. Their proportions work with pants, midi skirts, mini skirts… the list goes on! And no one needs to know you’re wearing Christmas socks underneath (it can be our little secret).
A fierce pair of boots is now officially a wardrobe necessity for me. At the very least they prevent me from dreading colder weather!
