The days of wearing open-toe shoes have long been over. As the weather continues to drop, now is the perfect time to invest in a pair of weather-appropriate shoes that you can wear to any casual outing or holiday event. Our choice: the classic black bootie. These bad boys are comfortable, stylish and go with almost every outfit. Although there are so many ways to wear them, check out the four outfits below for some inspiration on how to rock this season’s staple shoe!

 The next ensemble is perfect for a casual gathering with friends or a trip to a town festival. Toss on an open knit sweater over a black crop top and button-through mini skirt. With the black leather booties, you’ll take the outfit from cute and comfy to

grunge and chic.

 Whether you’re getting ready for a girls’ night out or holiday party, these shoes look trés fabulous with any dress paired with a structured jacket (like this leather one) or a blazer. Dress up the look with a gold statement necklace.
