What colour booties are you wearing with black leggings???

fashion forum fashion advice

I'm shopping for black leggings this weekend, possibly panel ones, but wanted some advice about what colour booties to put with them.

I know the obvious choice is black but I kinda like the tan bootie with black leggings, as it breaks up the colour a little. I don't mind dark brown with black leggings either but I know that breaks all the' traditional' fashion rules.

So how are you guys styling this look?

Thanks and happy shopping! :)

    I think black leggings and tan booties goes well. As you said, it breaks up the black on black combination. I am quite picky when it comes to black leggings with black booties, as I need them to be a true “black” black, not a “grey” black or “navy” black otherwise you don’t get the matching black, which looks more strange.

    I agree with terri-berri about the “true” black booties with black leggins. It looks strange when the colour is just slightly off. Any other colour booties go well though, I have grey and purple ones that I wear with black leggins all the time.

  • Tess says:

    Also consider trying an almost black, or slate grey. This will help keep the look streamlined and avoid “cutting” your legs off at the ankle the way a conversely differently colour might. Have fun shopping, and I reckon go for panelled for a bit more fun for your fashion buck :)

      Agreed Tess!I think panelled leggings will get a huge workout this winter.

    How funny, didn’t read the other responses properly before I replied, seems I’m of differing opinion on this one!

  • Kendelle says:

    I like grey boots as an alternative to black, however, this winter I went for a bit of a change as to work I wear mainly black/cream/dark colours (purple, blue, green) so got bright sunshine yellow boots. Wore them first time on an overcast day and it just lifted my outfit!

  • terri_berri says:

    Rather than leggings, have you considered wearing opaque tights or woollen tights? Adding a pair of patterned tights are also very cute with any coloured booties.

    At the moment, I am on the hunt for a pair of leopard faux fur or snakeskin booties to go with my black outfits. Something a bit different to the mainstream block colour.

    I just bought some faux leather leggings from ebay – cheap cost and probably cheap quality but I thought they’d be worth a go. They come in about 10 different colours/prints; i went for matte black and shiny black-purple :) I’m going to wear them with my blue-purple colour-block high-heel booties :)
