Booties for the Brisk

By: StyleMayvin Staff Writer - Shelby Christie

Fall has ushered in that familiar cool, crispness. Battling the familiar wind can be quite a task…lucky for us ladies, fall has also brought with it a feminine touch to help us fend off the cold. Paper bag Booties are THE absolute perfect autumn accessory. The cinched tops of the boot add a ruffle effect, giving a softer feminine look to layers of freeze-fighting garments. Bulking on the layers during the cold months is practical, but sometimes one may get lost under their bundle of clothing. Having a few inches on the heel will help elongate the legs. The paper bag booties come in an assortment of shades, and mostly suede and leather material…making them a fall closet staple.

A particular pair that caught my eye, made by House of Harlow 1960, is a jewel toned suede platform boot called “Dyson”. I absolutely fell in love with the rich shade of the suede; it offers a great contrast to the browns and golds of the fall season. You can find these cold-weather kickers online at http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/.

Another great option when choosing a paper bag bootie is a wedge heel. This style may offer you a little bit more stability for those wet and rainy days out. I found a great pair of the wedged variety, online at www.seychellesfootwear.com, they are a 4 ½ inch tan suede bootie. I really like that it has a ribbon lace-up front, adding a dainty touch. The slim ankle boots are also great for pairing with skirts on those frigid fall days, the boot’s cinched top comes up about a inch or two(depending on the particular pair) above the ankle. So don’t be afraid to sport a lovely dress under that trench…These booties will fend off the frostbite for you!


I really like the booties too! They will look good on ladies of all ages :) Luv your article CIB
