Simply Chic: Five Minimalist Booties for a Classy Style

May 20, 2012 • By Karla Mae

Minimalist designs are a great way to make a statement. Make great impact with the simplest embellishment or just a great splash of color. With the help of Nordstrom’s expansive collection, we’ve come up with five classy boots that prove how less is indeed more.

1. Trouvé Mika Booties, $119.95

Delicate vintage details adorn this ivory leather bootie, starting from the black cutout on the heel and the smart brogue on the ankle and peep toe.

2. Steven by Steve Madden Macki Booties, $198.95

The design remains fairly simple on this Steve Madden ankle boot, but with its slim 4 1/2-inch heel and bright fuchsia color, this shoe is a true attention-getter.

3. Jimmy Choo Donita Short Boots, $1,095

To do country, you don’t really need fringes or heavy spurs. This tan leather boot gets the job done with a Western-cut style, a symmetrical harness in the same tan color, and a stacked heel.

4. DV by Dolce Vita Roja Booties, $63.90

Add dazzle to your outfit with this sapphire blue suede boot and its glittery wedge heel.

5. KORS Michael Kors Irving Booties, $176.90

Black is a striking color that stands out even more with the rich and plush texture of suede. This boot’s large buckle and slender heel also create a beautiful proportion.
