So I have been seeing the peep-toe bootie every.where this season, usually styled with skirts or cropped pants. And I always think the same thing — “Cute! But definitely in that ‘I’m-so-hip-I-don’t-need-to-wear-flattering-clothes way.'” You know, like harem pants and those huuuge 80s-ish glasses that some kids wear. The peep-toe bootie trend also strikes me as completely inappropriate for the conservative office, at least when worn with skirts. (Pictured: Sam Edelman ‘Wakefield’ Wedge Bootie, available at Nordstrom for $199.95.)
But then I started wondering — is my gut reaction shared by others? After all, peep toes have come a long way, baby…
Readers, what are your thoughts? Which newish trends will you be trying at the office this year?
