While pumps and sandals are fantastic footwear choices, have you considered wearing stiletto ankle boots or booties?

Open-toe booties can provide more edge than other shoes. The toe-baring design gives off that mysteriously sexy vibe — showing just a tiny bit of skin without being too blatant about it. It spices up a look and makes it a tad more interesting.

You’ll be amazed at how versatile open-toe booties can be. They go with practically any outfit, are appropriate for most occasions, and can be worn in most kinds of weather.

They look great with shorts, jeans, skirts, dresses, and even evening gowns. Just see below how some of Hollywood’s leading stars have worn them in the past:

1. Casual or Party

Whether you’ll be doing some quick shopping or going to a cocktail party, open-toe booties will help you look great while engaging in these activities.

They add some oomph to an ordinary pair of jeans and make a simple top-with-short-skirt look party-fabulous.

2. With Dresses and Pants

Pants paired with open-toe booties give off a tough-yet-sexy vibe, while dresses matched with open-toe booties are more on the feminine-with-an-edge style.

Both looks are fabulous options, and choosing one over the other largely depends on what style you want to channel.

3. Any Season

Spring and Summer

As opposed to regular closed-toe booties, open-toe booties are for obvious reasons most popular during spring and summer.

If you want to go out in the sun in style, forgo the comfortable-yet-not-so-interesting and go for a pair of the more alluring open-toe booties.

Fall and Winter

Fall is, of course, a good time to wear open-toe booties. While the weather isn’t exactly warm, on most days you may not feel the need to cover up your toes.

Match your open-toe booties with layered separates (tops, jackets, cardigans, or scarves), or wear your pair with a short, leg-showcasing skirt. A dress and a topper like the ones Katie Holmes wore below would also be a great choice.
