I can’t deny the fact that I’ve been having a rather difficult time parting with my more summer-appropriate strappy cage booties, which served as my night-out “work horses” for pretty much every dancing outing and bar-hopping excursion for the past few months. Needless to say, they’re pretty worn (okay, practically trashed), and plus — they’re a little out of season given the gradually dropping fall temperatures. Luckily, given the fashion world’s modern infatuation with booties of all shapes and sizes, party-going gals can still get the vampy caged look with a little extra fall-friendly coverage, thanks to trendy mesh booties! After all, less is more, yet “less” can also make you freeze your toes off in this weather, so these peekaboo booties leave a little to the imagination while still giving the illusion of a sexy sandal-bootie hybrid.
Dress up a pair of skinny jeans or cargoes with some strappy-sheer platforms from Nine West, or go more girlie with these ruffle-detailed mesh Denya booties by Boutique 9, paired with a pencil skirt or slinky dress. To amp up the edge factor, I love the netted texture of these peep-toe Nyda booties by Juicy Couture, or opt for a mysterious mix of tough and sexy with these bandage booties from DV by Dolce Vita!
