Happy Tuesday ladies. Are you as fond of wearing booties as I am? They’re so much warmer than shoes this time of year and with our recent rains, drier. Let’s have a look at some modern ways to style booties over 50.

This month for our Over 50 Fashion Edit, Cindy and I are being joined by my friend Jan, to chat all about boots. I also want to mention that these two gorgeous, silver-haired ladies have been part of my inspiration to go gray and find out what mother nature is doing to my hair color.
I bought these water-resistant rain boots at the Nordstrom anniversary sale 3-4 years ago and haven’t needed them until this week! We’re being deluged with torrential downpours and blustery winds so these Sperry Saltwater Duck Boots (this year’s version) are finally perfect!
The laces don’t tie so they’re easier to slip on and off and are still snug on the foot. A skinnier pant leg would work better for tucking into boots, especially if you tuck them into your socks first. This is what I was wearing when the rain hit and we ran outside to grab some photos. My trench coat is not waterproof, but it matches my rainboots and you know how I love things to coordinate plus I use an umbrella.
Straight and bootcut jeans are perfect to wear over booties, but not in the rain. The hem of your jeans should cover the arch and down to where the heel meets the boot in the back. Even longer if it’s a high heel.
The newest crop of water-resistant suede boots like mine above means you can wear them rain or shine.

I have 5 pairs of black ankle boots, all with different levels of refinement (that’s my justification), and am now looking to add ones in my current hair color.
STYLE TIP – Wearing footwear in your hair color keeps the eye moving around your silhouette which draws attention back to your face. It bookends any outfit you wear.
Stiletto heels are not in my wheelhouse these days, but generally, the higher and skinnier the heel, the wider the pant leg needs to be.
There’s no question that pointed toes elongate the look of your leg, but I find almond or round toe boots are comfier when wearing socks for warmth. Almond is a timeless toe shape that’s always in style.
This year, I’ve embraced boots and shoes with stretch which are super comfy, and am just choosing the low block heel which is the most stable and preferable for my aging feet.
Trending bootie shapes this year are western, combat, cowboy, chunky Chelsea boots, and bold knee-high boots. I’m unclear what they mean by bold, but most knee boots make a statement.
