How To Wear… Little Booties with Little Dresses

A week or so ago I posted about the AW09 trend for Booties and it’s high time I followed it up with a how to wear… them piece. It’s all about the little dresses when it comes to the little booties and there are a couple of simple rules;

1. The absolute max height of your chosen bootie is about 5-8 cm above the ankle bone.

2. The absolute max length of your dress is mid-thigh.

The rules mean that if you go any longer with your dress / taller with your booties you risk making your lovely pins look as short as a Gringotts Goblin’s. The idea is to make sure you show enough leg length so that the eye isn’t fooled into thinking that your legs are shorter than they are. A longer dress or taller boot will seem to cut your leg length in half.

It’s a little more demure and a whole lot more edgy to wear your evening or day dress with booties.Here a few fashionable young females setting the standard, you’ll get what I mean!

Celebrities in Booties and LIttle DressesTaylor wears hers short, silver and slouched over. Chloe’s are amazing ( I need these) and from her collection for Opening Ceremony. Mischa Barton teams her sparkling dress with flat biker booties. Gwyneth keeps hers suede, short and sweet. Rihanna, who loves this trend, has fierce peep toe lace-up booties which look amazing against her day dress. Emma Roberts and V.B. keep their booties plain and simple to flatter their dress styles – though I still love the embellished neckline on Emma Robert’s short white dress.
