Boots vs. Booties & How To Style Them

The perfect way to complete any outfit is with a great pair of boots this winter, and with colder weather approaching, boots and booties are your new fashion best friend.

Here, we bring you KF’s no stress guide on boots and booties, and how to style them perfectly with any outfit, so you look gorgeously put together all day, every day.  And, did we mention, very striking since a great set of boots paired with the right outfit, will give you that perfectly polished look with ease.



A great pair of boots is incomparable in their ability to finish off your outfit. They can easily elevate your look to fabulous, but the trick is knowing how to pair them with the right look to make an eye-catching statement.  Here are some of our fave KF picks this fall season, along with our easy ways to style them for a fresh, fall look.

Slouchy Boots


Slouchy boots are back, and we couldn’t be more excited. An easy and relaxed trend that looks super chic paired with leggings and a great tunic or statement jacket.  A go-to in your closet, you can also rock this trend with a chic skirt or shorts with tights for an easy, Parisian girl-like style that is super striking.


Pairing a slouchy boot with skirts or a dress is an easy way to transition your wardrobe into the fall season. Easy to layer and dress up or down with accessories, slouchy boots are a fall must-have.


Over-the-Knee Boots

The over-the-knee boot has that WOW! factor, so go simple when picking out your outfit. This type of boot can really elongate the leg, and is incredibly striking. A pair with a 2-3 inch heel for a little extra height is an added bonus. Style this boot with a dress that hits at the mid-thigh or with a simple pair of dark wash skinny jeans for an even longer, more elongated leg.

Within the last few years booties have become more than just a closet staple. They are a neccesity. Easy to throw on, booties seamlessly dress up an otherwise casual outfit. The best of all, booties come in a variety of different heights, styles, and colors, making it easy to spice up any outfit AND stay comfortable!

Bold Booties


Statement booties are IN!  Exciting prints, striking colors, metallics, are the way to go to finish off a simple, yet classic ensemble.  If you want to be a little more bold, try a monotone look. Have a little fun with an entire outfit in a statement making color like blue or red.  You will look instantly chic!

Business Booties


Booties are relatively easy to walk in and don’t hurt your feet as bad as stilettos might, which we say makes them the perfect go to for your fall work wardrobe. In the fall, pair your favorite booties with a skirt for a more updated, modern work “look”, and layer your outfit so you can move through the day with ease. The versatility of an ankle boot is unimaginable.
