Animal Print Booties

There is a whole bunch of animal print booties out there right now and honestly I am not always sure what to think about it. The pattern is definitely an attention-grabber but when overly used  it is so easy to go from bold-chic to plain mess. Therefore, my first and foremost golden rule when it comes to animal print is – There can be only one. (Yes, I might have rewatched Highlander recently). As long as we restrict the animal print to only one piece of clothing in an outfit, in this case the booties, I believe that it can definitely spice up any style, from black skinnies leather jacket and a t-shirt to LBD. But be warned, with your animal booties on, no matter how alluring and tempting that potentially matching animal print scarf or cardigan is, my kindest advice is to stay away from it.

Here are some animal-print goodies out in the stores right now to lust upon, in different models and price categories.

Classical model

Isabel Marant Cleane Booties at Mytheresa

The booties from Isabel Marant are my personal favourite, surprisingly since I usually prefer the almond-toe. However, I really like the pointy lines and the bold but still kind of elegant choise of the print.

No need to give up on your wedges when lusting for some animal print.

And for the brave ones out there, the really high option:

Nelly Shoes - Leopold

Open-toe booties

Personally I have never been a big fan of open-toe booties. For me, if it is warm enough to show off your toes, then why go for boots?  But if you disagree, no worries, thou shall shop too:
