Fashion Tips/Peep Toe vs. Lace Up Booties


Hi Suzette,

I have been debating over getting either a pair of black peep toe booties or a pair of black lace up booties. Which do you think is more versatile?

Thank you.

It really depends on your wardrobe, lifestyle and personal style.  Both are good options.

If you are in a business environment, the peep toes will work better as you can wear them to work with a suit or pencil skirt.

If you are primarily talking about this pair of shoes for the evening, the booties work well because they are better with skirts, shorts, and leggings.

If you have any additional questions, or would like to give me more information, please don't hesitate to ask.

I have a website called The site allows a woman to enter a few basic measurements and create a virtual (3D) model of their body. The purpose of the site is to give them visual information as to what is right and not right for their body type. I can answer any questions pertaining to body type, style, color analysis, and what is right for each body type.

As I grew in my craft, I discovered that I had an eye for what type of garment is good for the female body, how each body type looks different the same garment, and how easy it is to create 'rules' to follow to always look as pulled together as possible while maintaining an individual sense of style.
