Booties are a must in every girls closet theses days. Booties help edge up a super girly outfit  or depnding on the bootie can girly up a super edgy outfit. If you’re searching for a new style to spice up your ankle boot game, lace-up booties are the fiercest footwear trend of the moment. 

There’s something slightly sexy about showing a little bit of skin between laces. Depending on your work/internship environment, this style may not be suitable for the workplace, but are perfect for slipping on for a happy hour after clocking out.

If you’re not sure how to wear these shoes, take some cues from the styles above. Pair them with skinny jeans, a skirt, or a dress. Think of all the killer looks in your closet just waiting to be paired with some laced-up ankle booties.
