Black and white sequined dress with silver booties, blue gem earrings and white clutch

I just purchased a fantastic pair of silver, sock-style, open-toe booties. They were just what I needed to complete my NYE outfit (yes, I’m planning ahead this year!) and also carried the very comfortable price tag of $60.

NYE is an occasion that can easily lead to one-time-use garment purchases — the bane of a budget fashionista’s existence. So before I hit “complete your purchase” for those booties, I spent a few minutes thinking about how I can realistically work bold silver footwear into my everyday wardrobe.

I’ll share those bootie outfit ideas with you now — feel free to use them to justify your own purchase of flashy shoes!

How to Wear Open-toe Booties

1. Monochrome for Boots that Pop

Statement booties look fabulous as part of an otherwise monochrome outfit. I’m already picture my silver booties with black faux leather leggings and a lightweight black button down. If I’m feeling frisky, I’ll add a pair of dark blue gemstone earrings. The simplicity of monochrome lets you get away with a blingy shoe even for more casual occasions.

2. Skinny Jeans and Long Sweater

This outfit also balances out the flashiness of the booties by matching them with more casual pieces. An oversized sweater doesn’t have to be reserved for chilly evenings at home, after all.

    EMBRACE YOUR SHAPE
    “Once you know which silhouettes flatter you, filter trends ruthlessly,” says designer Shoshanna Gruss. For instance, if you’re petite and shapely, it’s best to avoid tall columns and billowy maxis even if you love them. Go for a dress with a defined waist and just-above-the-knee hem.
