Ankle boots (or booties) can be stylish, but you have to wear them right. Finding the right cut is important because the wrong style can make your ankles and feet look wider than they are. Tucking your leggings into your booties can create a long, lean, leggy look. If you wear them with skinny jeans, roll up the cuff to show some of your leg and ankle. Wearing them with tights is a great way to add color to a dress or skirt outfit without adding bulk around the ankles.
Now that you know how to wear them properly, here are three great deals on booties—all for less than $30!
Women’s Javelin Oxford by American Eagle
If you’ve been looking for an Oxford heel, this shoe is just the ticket. Although they’re American Eagle brand, you can get these booties at Payless right now for only $14.00. Payless is out of most sizes online, but use the “Find this near you” button to locate stores with this style in stock. The color, Cognac, works great with a fall wardrobe. Yes, fall is six months away, but now’s the perfect time to stock up on footwear for fall and winter because these styles are on clearance.
Women’s Mad Love Lenora Ankle Wedge Booties
I’ve mentioned before that I don’t walk well in heels. Wedges are the perfect alternative for me (and for fellow clumsy women) who teeter and totter on three-inch heels. These ankle wedge booties from Target are $29.99 and come in four different colors: grey, ivory, black and green. The wedge heel is two inches, adding a little height without sacrificing walking stability. Like many wedge-style shoes, you may need to order half a size smaller than normal to prevent your foot from slipping forward and stretching the shoe.
Chaps Nevina Booties
Kohl’s is offering these Chaps Nevina Booties marked way down from their original price of $99.99. They’re now only $29.99 in both black and brown. The polished look is a great look for the office or for a night out. The side zipper helps you easily slide them on and off, and the low 2.5-inch heel makes them more manageable than other bootie styles.
If you’re ready for sandals instead of booties, snag these styles while they’re cheap, and put them away for fall.
