Cut Out Booties : Styled 3 Ways
I got a request recently in the Fashion Citizen mail box about styling cut out booties. It's pretty cool to get interaction from readers, especially when I get to stretch my fashion citizen muscles and help you style your real life items. Cut out booties come in so many looks and colors, it's hard to pin point a specific style. I chose a pair of Kurt Geiger "Glance" booties and styled them 3 ways to give options as to how you can wear this versatile shoe.
The first look is very simple and we take a unique skirt and allow it to be the center of the look. Building around it, a cropped white top is paired with a statement necklace to add some shine. A bucket bag brings a bit of that 90's feel that's creeping back in a la Jeremy Scott at Moschino. Oversized shades complete the look. The cut out booties here give the look of an ankle boot but with the deep opening on the side freshen things up like a sexy pump.
The second look amps things up a bit with an eye catching pair of slim pants in a print that rings in spring whether it's still snowing or not. Adding a bit of subtle contrast, we pull in a dove grey moto jacket and pull the white from the pants to select an envelope style clutch. A futuristic ear cuff and rings are the chosen accessories to make the look modern and youthful. Try a bright color like this lemon yellow NARS polish to send this look over the edge.
This last look carries our most wattage. Suitable for a night out or a party, this high octane dress is sure to have all eyes on you. Body con in a bright neon with mesh details will bring a Miami night to wherever you are. These cut out booties are just as versatile as your favorite pump, wearing them just offers a bit of a change up when you need one. I've added a patent obi belt to the dress to break up the solid orange column, to further define the waist. Black textural accessories in the form of a snakeskin cuff and a laser cut clutch add interest and layers to the look. Geometric earrings bring a bit of old school in to finish things up.
