September 22nd was the first day of Fall, but October 21st was the first day of ACTUAL Fall in the South, the first day where temperatures were not in the 80’s! Needless to say I packed up my sandals and dusted off all the booties I could find in my closet!
As many of you know, I work in a corporate environment, M-F, 8am-5pm. I love a good fashion trend so over the years I have learned how to incorporate these trends into appropriate work attire. The hottest trend right now, sock booties. Let me first admit, it was not love at first sight between me and this trend. In fact it took me a few weeks to find a pair that I loved! Well now that I have found said pair, I cannot get enough of these! They are so sleek, slimming, and best…AFFORDABLE (under $40 to be exact, and available in three colors!)
To keep these”office appropriate,” I paired them with my favorite statement slacks. These polka dots pants are a staple piece in my closet & still in stock for only $40. Next, I threw on this black, short sleeve poncho to complete the look and BAM, corporate chic! (poncho is from Loft last year but I’ve shared similar options below!) These pants hit right at the ankle so the sock booties naturally fit under the slim leg which creates such a lean, long look! However you could easily cuff the pants one time if you wanted to show more of the boot itself. The oversized sweater balances out the more “fitted” bottom. Need a few more outfit suggestions? How about black slacks & a longer plaid blazer… or … a corporate dress with black tights. The possibilities are endless!
I’ve linked all the details of this exact look below, including where you can purchase! As always, thanks for following along & please be sure to check out my “Work Wear” section for all your corporate needs!
