Black Booties Under $100 Styled 4 Ways!
Black slippers are a must-have in every woman’s fall wardrobe. And you probably already have that basic pair of black booties that you love and can wear with anything. But you might want to add a few more to your wardrobe that are a little edgy. The trendy black ankle boots I share below are SO good… They instantly transform the look of your outfit and add a cool, modern and even youthful touch. It’s amazing what a small pair of boots can do! Trust me, you’ll thank me later. And they are under $100!
Steve Madden Lug Sole Booties
Before we get to the outfits, let me talk about these Steve Madden booties…if you’ve been an email subscriber for a while, you’ve seen these booties before. I bought last year’s version and wore them so much when we lived in Spain that I decided to buy this year’s version too! I love the chunky platform sole, the round toe, the stretchy fabric around the ankle and the block heel (2.5″). Chunky sole booties are very trendy right now and these are a great option to try the trend for less than $100. They are really comfortable and easy to walk in. (They can be trickier to put on and take off. I wouldn’t recommend these for wider feet.) By the way, if you prefer a shorter shaft height on your boots , this pair is very similar, from the same brand, and gives you the same trendy look.
Below we share some ideas on how to style them…
T-SHIRT | FOR LESS | JEANS | BLAZER | BOOTS | SUNGLASSES
Look #1) Booties with tapered jeans
Since these booties are sock style at the top, they fit perfectly under any type of jeans style…including tapered or straight jeans like this pair from AG. They have a super flattering, slim straight fit that’s perfect for those of you who love skinny jeans but are looking for an updated denim silhouette. I like the medium-light wash and high waist. I handcuffed them once, but they would also fit over the boots without a cuff. On my top half I wear a basic white T-shirt under a cool hooded blazer. This blazer is older, so I’ve attached a similar option. But I love how the hood adds a little more casualness to the look compared to a more traditional blazer.

Look #2) Booties with black jeans
In this look, I’m wearing cropped, high-rise black Good American jeans that I already know will be my go-to jeans this fall. They run very small so I would go up 1-2 sizes. I wear a 27 (normally a 26) and they are still a bit snug. With the jeans I’m wearing a Jonathan Simkhai sweater jacket. This is a really cool piece. It has a waist-defining detail that’s very flattering and a little peplum that’s great for hiding a tummy.

Look #3) Booties with Flare Jeans
This is probably my favorite look on this list! I’m wearing a striped blouse from Veronica Beard with buttons on the side of the shoulder and a high neck. It’s a really chic and beautiful piece and I absolutely love it. It’s a special piece that you probably don’t have yet, but you could trade it for a nice button-down or blouse. I paired it with a black oversized IRO blazer. Oversized blazers are very trendy right now and this is a wonderful option, but there are also plenty of budget-friendly options. On my lower half, I’m wearing a pair of my favorite Mother jeans. It’s a cropped flare that is SO flattering and comfortable. Trust me… several Team Busbee members have these jeans and love them!
LEGGINGS (limited sizes) | SIMILAR | SWEATER | FOR LESS | SIMILAR JACKET | FOR LESS | BOOTS | SIMILAR SUNGLASSES | FOR LESS | EARRINGS
Look #4) Booties with leggings
If you’ve ever worked out right before running errands, meeting a friend for coffee, or picking up the kids from school, this is the look for you! Let’s say you’re wearing black leggings and a black sports bra or tank/T-shirt for your workout. All you have to do is throw on an oversized sweater and these cool edgy booties and you’re good to go! I went for this gorgeous green AllSaints sweater and added a sporty Blanc Noir jacket. I like the color and the raw hem of the sweater. It is super comfortable and comes in a few colors. My jacket is older, but I’ve linked a very similar option from the same brand that gives you the same look and feel.
SHIRT | LEGGINGS (limited sizes) | SIMILAR | SWEATER | FOR LESS | SIMILAR JACKET | FOR LESS | BOOTS | SIMILAR SUNGLASSES | FOR LESS | EARRINGS
Of course I have a bonus for you! If you’re concerned that your hips, butt, and thighs will show through, try a longer sweater or an oversized button-down underneath, like I did above. It’s essentially the same as Look #4, but a little more polished and refined. Now you look cool, edgy, sporty, modern and not at all like you just got out of the gym!
