With these 7 tips, you’ll know how to wear glitter booties in no time. Streets of New York City, here we come!
1. Short and Sweet
If you’re wondering how to wear glitter booties with your party outfits, keep ‘em short! They’ll pack just enough punch –without going overboard. You can have tons of fun with short glitter booties: Opt for bright hues, big heels, and pretty patterns. Wear them with your classic opaque tights and little black dress to really let them stand out.
2. Laced-up and Lovely
Who knew laces and glitter would make an amazing couple? Well, it’s true! Try it out for yourself by investing in a kickass pair of laced-up glitter booties. Paired with a leather skirt and your beau’s v-neck tee, they’ll take your whole look up a notch (or twelve!). Wear them to your next concert or house party to really make an impact.
3. Half-Full and Fabulous
All or nothing is overrated. If you’re unsure about going all out, test the waters with a partially glittered bootie. They’re super easy to wear –you could even pull them off on casual Fridays at the office! I’d throw ‘em on with my skinny jeans and a basic tee. I’d complete my look with an oversized tote and sunglasses for a glamour goddess feel.
4. Black and Beautiful
City slickers know that black never goes out of style. So, if you favor patterns and embellishments on top, your glitter booties should be black or neutral. If you’re feeling daring, go for black booties with silver or gold glitter on them –they’d look stunning at your next big holiday bash.
5. Rocker Chic
Yes, you can wear a glimmering pair of booties with your leather jacket and dark wash skinny jeans. I’d recommend grabbing a pair of your old studded shoes and gluing glitter onto the edges. If you’re feeling extra creative, glitter cap toes will set you apart from the other gals on the stage.
6. Glitzy and Glamorous
Some gals can’t leave the house without a little bling. I’d save up for a gorgeous pair of designer booties from Miu Miu, Rachel Roy, or Vince Camuto. After all, if you love notice-me glitz, these will be an investment piece! Just keep your accessories simple, opting for only one piece of jewelry at a time.
7. Cool and Casual
You don’t need to wait for a hot date or a night out with the girls to wear glitter booties! If you want to keep it casual, skip heels in favor of flats. Still too dressed up? Try glitter oxfords, flats, loafers, or even sneakers. Wear them with your usual garb –they’ll be sure to catch your crush’s eye.
