How to Wear Gold Booties (Without Looking Like You’re Headed to The Disco, Disco)

by krismkoch

When it comes to shoes, I usually stick to the more classic neutrals in my everyday. It’s just easier, especially in NYC where everything seems to get dirty in .02 secs. Not to mention, it’s much more spend-wise (is that a word? A grandma word?). That’s not to say I’m not totally obsessed when I see a brilliant pair of printed heels or bold, bright booties, but when I do the cost per wear calculation that I try (try being the operative word) to let dictate my spending, it just never seems like the pay off will be worth it when I think about how many times I’ll actually wear them. And truth be told, when I have departed from my usual black, brown, grey, tan, and white, I haven’t necessarily regretted the spend (because those shoes are oh, so pretty), but they also tend to fall into the category of only having been worn a few times and having to buy things just to wear them with (which I know is a red flag not to buy something but they’re just oh, so pretty, ya know?). But the fall/winter collections made me change my mind about bold shoes. While typically I save metallic shoes for strappy sandals and pumps, the gold booties that were everywhere at last fashion week and have been hitting the streets ever since have been giving me maj shoe envy. They’re at once luxe and indulgent and trendy, but yet like your go-to gold sandal, they go with everything. Since I figured I can’t be the only one, I rounded up some ideas and inspiration for how to wear gold booties.

What really has me rethinking my basic neutrals-only shoe policy is how they instantly make any outfit look more glam, luxe, and put-together. Personally, I love pieces like that because it let’s me get away with lazy-dressing. I love the look with all-black, which I recently spotted on Elle’s Accessories Director Maria Duenas-Jacobs at work, spurring my rethinking of this street style splurge. But I also love the look with an unexpected pairing like a knee skirt, striped sweater and chunky tights. It gives the cozy, preppy look a fashion-forward edge. And with rolled jeans, it adds a luxe finish that upgrades your look completely — no discotheque vibes at. all. If you’re thinking of trying the trend, here’s how to wear gold booties.
