Q. I recently purchased a cute pair of grey suede booties. My problem is, I really don’t know what to wear them with besides black. Can you give me some suggestions that are age appropriate for a 39 year-old?
-Booty and Black
A. I think of grey as a soft neutral, which means you can pair your new booties with plenty of other options. Pairing with just black can be boring unless you wear them with a black sweater dress and patterned tights. Try dark jeans, navy wide leg pants, a plaid skirt, grey tweed trousers, a mini dress in plum, olive, teal or midnight colors and add opaque tights. If you wear them with a skirt or dress, make sure the length doesn’t hit more than three inches below your knee. Booties have a tendency to make people look shorter in height.
