Love this trend! I would love to grab all of these up BUT if I HAD to choose, you know life or death situation, I would pick the Oscars (#1) or the Pradas (#5). This post was actually brought on when I saw the Pradas at the mall and fell in love with them because 1) they are sexy as hell 2) they're made of the SOFTEST material.  Lets get to the silhouette.






















There is just something about them. They can be a sexy but can also be very fun and flirty. Similar to the above two from Marchesa made by Christian Louboutin, they can be ultra feminine with the perfect lace. But then they can also be like the spiked Christian Louboutins shown in #6.


But either way, they make a statement with any outfit. When searching for the best that match this trend it was important to distinguish the true ankle booties versus booties that come up to your ankle but ends right before your calf. I like the taller kind because they really demand attention. 





The only concern I have is for short people like me. I think this type of shoe can really exaggerate how short you are unless paired correctly. So my advice would be to style it with a short dress like Victoria Beckham or Doutzen Kroes, that way you can accentuate your legs vs. pants that tall models could wear with it and look fab in. 

Will you try this trend? Let me know below!

Smooches,
