Which Mesh Booties Do You Prefer — Rachel Zoe or BCBGMAXAZRIA?

January 17, 2013 • By Mary

You know a trend is picking up some pace when two or more well-known designer brands come up with their own versions of the same style. A perfect example of this is the see-through mesh bootie design, which is available in two slightly different takes by designer brands Rachel Zoe and BCBGMAXAZRIA.

For your shopping convenience, we went ahead and picked out all available colors of these booties from Shopbop and Nordstrom, so all you have to do now is decide which brand and style to go for.

First stop, we have the Rachel Zoe “Maddy” raffia booties. What distinguishes this pair from that of BCBGMAXAZRIA is its more bohemian-chic feel, which is, of course, in keeping with the Rachel Zoe fashion aesthetics. If you’re a fan of Rachel’s style, then feel free to pair these raffia booties with a maxi dress or some loose-fitting tunic or dressy top.

But if you want to go for a more savvy and sexy look, then these BCBGMAXAZRIA mesh stiletto booties would be the perfect match for your style. These pairs would be great with your favorite night-out outfits, such as a little black dress, a sequin miniskirt, and even a pair of skinny jeans for a more casual feel.
